The pressure is on! The deadline for holiday finishing at our needlepoint store is Thursday, October 1st. My old needlepoint group got together tonight for dinner and stitching. It was so much fun to see everyone. We used to meet every other week, but everyone's schedules got a little hectic, so now we meet when someone emails and offers up their house.
I started needlepointing a million years ago, but really picked it up in college and have been stitching ever since. There is something so satisfying about picking up a needlepoint from the store when it is finished. I stick mostly to Christmas ornaments these days, so they usually go straight on my tree. I have 4 to drop off this time and can't wait to see them done. They are ornaments but most are pink and green, like my tree!
Tonight, it felt like a glimpse of Fall, it wasn't necessarily cool outside, but not hot. It seems like a miracle. Bring on the chilly weather already! I am counting the days until Halloween-I am going to North Carolina to visit Meg, Brett and my little pal Ashley!
p.s. I am wearing a bikini in the picture that you can't see!
