Lady & the Castle

Hello everyone,

I've not posted in several weeks. First it was too hot to even think about stitching, then when the weather turned more temperate it was still too warm for me. But now the days are shorter, the leaves on a couple of trees near the house have begun to turn, (American) football is back on TV, and the afternoon sunlight has begun to develop a hint of autumnal slant. My favorite time of the year is almost here.

Since my last post, I've finished the creature under the fishpond. He'd been without legs, tail and ears for ever so long!

I've also finished the tree beneath the castle.

Really bad photo, I know. It was very cloudy by late afternoon yesterday.

And finally two closeups:

There have been some amazing finishes recently. Congratulations to everyone!

Your Lady is really coming along beautifully. The colors are so vibrant and your stitching is lovely. Everytime I see your progress I want to stitch her too :)

I'm in Cleveland experiencing the same weather/ seasonal beginnings of changes that you mentioned...autumn is my favorite, too.

Keep up the good are making great progress.
