Stitching update first... I continue on SDW. I know, when am I going to get to the END?! LOL! I hope soon!! Every time I pull this sampler out I cannot believe how loooooooong it is! and that I have stitched it all!
I am working on the lower alphabets. Love the pop of RED in the crown. I love all the colors, although hated all the thread changes!
I also did give the peacock and mallard some ground to walk on...
It has been a quiet month. I enjoyed spending time at my favorite place, by Candlewood Lake.....
Got to see the new film, Blue Jasmine. I give it two thumbs up, Cate Blanchett is awesome in it!
Here are a couple of feathered friends we had wandering around the town green at work...hope they find a hiding place before November!
I did some summer reading and finished the book Summer House by Nancy Thayer. I really enjoyed this one! It takes place on Nantucket and the story is told by three generations of women, all from the same family about their secrets and the dramas of the family.
And today, I went Oktoberfesting! I always enjoy this annual event. German weiss beer, German food, German strudel, German music, and German dancing... all great fun!
Here is a video I took of the Schuhplattler dancers doing a traditional dance. They are so lovely dressed in their lederhosen and dirndls.....
Enjoy the rest of this holiday weekend! I have definitely gotten lots of primetime US Open Tennis watching in over the last few days!! I love night time tennis in NYC!
Have a wonderful week filled with miles of smiles!
Happy stitching! xxxx
