I'm Done ...

Pumpkins 4 Sale is finished. Waiting for DH to cut the wood for plaque. Then I get to whitewash it, attach the stitching and cording.

Sorry for the dark picture. Mother Nature has blessed us with clouds, rain, and cool temps. It might not be the greatest weather for picture taking but, I'm loving it! And sleeping wonderfully!


I wish I had changed the border green a bit. It seems to me too close to the white. I don't know - maybe I am being picky!




                             

If you noticed - I made a little change from the pattern. I have a thing about 'floating' items in my stitching. I thought the leaf above the mouse's head floated. So, I changed it to a couple more flowers. The flowers don't bother me floating but, that leaf did. Go figure.

I've decided I am going to put a dent in the WIP box. I started those 15 patterns in June-July! It is past time I get something accomplished!

If you happen to have put off entering my give-away --- you might want to --- soon!
I draw Sunday! Good luck!

A quick note ~~ Alivia is doing wonderfully! I haven't updated her status lately. She has check-ups on a monthly basis now. I do know she weighs at least 5 pounds and is growing like a weed! I'll get some new pictures soon and let you see the cutie she is becoming!
