We’ll it’s a good thing I had this today or no stitching would have taken place! Truth be told, I have mainly been knitting the past few weeks because I have just gone back to work and it’s busy and stressful so by the time I get home at night, I don’t feel like I have the energy to stitch, whereas I can knit in a circle on a sock.
I am happy to say though that I am up to date on my temperature tree by Stitchin Mommy. I should say though that the colour key I am using is off an online resource as hers didn’t really suit our west coast temperatures.
Sorry for the not great photo- it is so sunny in here today it is hard to find a spot without shadows. I will be oh so glad to see the start of cooler weather!
I am still working on my beatings piece for my dad and I have my next door pattern as well. However, I was going to ask for this group’s help. My colleague is retiring in June and getting married in July and I figured those were two big enough events to warrant some stitching. My thought is that I can stitch something and the staff can pay for framing as her retirement present. She loves reading, flowers, birds and cats and she is hoping to buy a hobby farm after she retires. Does anyone have a suggestion for a pattern that could be done in 8 months???

The tree is looking great AJ. I will look through my cross stitch magazines and see if there’s some ideas for you.
It’s looking beautiful and it’ll be good to see cooler colours appear. I know what you mean about knitting. It’s so easy to pick up and put down, especially socks which I love to knit too.
Yes I need more hours so I can get both knitting and stitching done
Love the way the leaves are shifting colors! I also do a lot of knitting nowadays!
hhhmm I can’t think of a specific design to suggest for the retirement project because there are so many lovely designers and designs out there. Cats, birds & flowers are frequently the subject of designs so I’m sure you’ll be spoiled for choice once you start looking. I wouldn’t go for something too big though. Even if you’ve got 8 months, best to keep to a medium sized design and get it finished early.
Thank you! That’s a good point to keep it smaller and get it done
