I really love Fall. I love it so much that’s it’s entirely possible I’ve written this post before. I love changing leaves, pumpkin spiced things, cooler weather and Halloween.
October is a great month. We’re headed into our second full month of home schooling and it gets a little smoother every day. Some days all the things get done and we get to have fun together! Other days we move a little slower and manage to laugh while getting some school work done.
Another reason I particularly like this October is the finishing of projects. I managed to repair a shirt for a friend and mail it off. (Should be there on Tuesday, fingers crossed.) I lengthened the sleeves then put the whole shirt back together. That was a really cool challenge which, of course, I forgot to photograph.
The next project knocked off my list was a small embroidery project. This is one of two roses I embroidered. They were worked on linen with DMC floss. I also did four of these little M’s, also worked on linen with DMC floss and silver couched all around. I have to say that I’m not that happy with how the M’s turned out. I don’t care for the silver I used for the couching. It just looks so sloppy. 😦
The roses and M’s are being turned into slips and then will be put on a cloak, I believe. Honestly, I was just thrilled to have the project done. Not because I didn’t enjoy it but it feels so often as if I don’t finish things! This was awesome!
This coming weekend we’re going to an SCA event. I’m working to finish up a kirtle for myself and something pretty for El. I have a pretty simple goal for the event, I want to play recorder at the dance that evening. Seriously. That’s it. Oh, and look nice doing it.
Have a great week!
