This weekend our family took a little trip up north to the mountains. We met up with my husband’s brother’s family and had a nice time hanging out around the campfire. Thank goodness that the rain that came through on Saturday morning lifted just after lunch and the kids all went down for a rest.
The leaves in our part of Virginia haven’t started to turn yet, so I will have more of this sort of thing to look forward to in the near future. Fall has to be my favorite season.
While the kids were napping, I took the opportunity to try to get some cross stitch practice in.
I have no idea what the size of this even-weave is — it’s just a remnant that I had laying around. It’s pretty small though. I’m working just with one strand of floss. The tree on the right I started from scratch, and it’s only about halfway done. My shoulder held up for about an hour or so before it just got too sore. I am sure stitching in 50 degree weather wasn’t doing me any favors.
Still, I’m working my way through a few things and hopefully will be making some progress on working up a pattern of my own sometime in the near future.
