Mid-week busy . . .

My goal for today:


These are all things that have been accumulating on the mantle of my electric fireplace. I want to decorate for autumn, but I don't want to just move things around. My goal for this hump day is to deal with all these things that I have been avoiding because I just haven't wanted to do them.

First up, mending a shirt for Newton and shortening a pair of jeans for me. I really don't mind mending - once I get started. And once I did get started, I found the jeans didn't need shortening :)

Next up, I finished some 9-patches that have been laying around.



Up next, I'm finally finished with the scarecrow wall hanging!


The glue for his "hair" is all dry and he's up.

   

 

Buttons, new and old, and ribbon details completed the project.
As you might recall, I did one in September for BF's birthday. I had two panels and did the prep work for both of them at the same time. It's taken me until now to do the detail stitching and assembly, even though it's been on my goal list for quite a while.




My next task was to dig out the Halloween decorations. I don't put a lot out and I go for the cute, fun stuff - not the scary. The lights are new this year. They add a fun touch.

The evening was spent attempting to stitch on the lace cabins. They are feeling like they are taking a long time to complete. To be fair to myself, stitching on the darker fabric is not an ideal evening project.

Thanks for stopping by, 

Wishing you a day filled with countless blessings.
