I have been stitching the past few days on two new autumn pieces.
First up is With Thy Needle & Thread's October Word Play. I LOVE these and can't wait to get November when it comes out. I am using the recommended overdyed threads, but I changed the fabric to Lakeside Linens 28 count Light Exemplar.
Second is Bent Creek's Quaker Moon. I started with the owl. I am using the recommended threads and fabric, 32 count Summer Khaki Belfast linen.
I purchased one of those Namaste Buddy cases for needlework supplies. Mine is in Eggplant. LOVE it! I am going to use it when I travel to the In Stitches lock-in on October 23 in Alexandria, Virginia, and also the Needlearts Stitching Retreat in Laurel, Maryland from November 11 through the 13. My first retreat! And Laurel is only about 20 to 25 minutes away from me, so win-win!
