Progress on Give Thanks

Hopefully this piece will be done Monday.   Ity doens't look like it has sthat much to do.   I have really messed up the colors on this one though.   The key was so hard to figure out.  Why do designers make keys almost unreadable?  I've discovered I've missed the color on 3 items but it's well over half done, I'm not taking it out.    I received the material for Phoenix Suns so will start that next.   That is the piece I had about half done and discovered I had the coral and purple colors twisted around had to frog and cut the material by accident so they recent me the material.
I can't believe Oct. is here already.   I love the fall colors.   I know it means the leaves are dying but they sure go out beautiful.  In a couple weeks I'm going on a color tour.   Three weeks from today is the event I've been looking forward to for 3 months now.   I don't know why.....but it sounds like fun.   We are having Mystery Dinner Theater at church Fri. and Sat. Oct. 22 and 23.   Apparently some great mystery occured at our church many years ago, it may be fact may be fictuon or may have exagerated an event and we have to solve it.   I'm one of the characters so I  don't get to guess but I can't wait to see how this plays out.   I hope it goes over well.     My sister called me earlier and said she was coming in for it.   I know we are having an Italian dinner.   I don't know who I will play but I do know they are using names of people from back then, my dad is one of the names, but he will not play himself.   It is a "Who done it  Mystery.:   sounds like fun.

We also have Trunk or Treat coming up Oct. 31.   That is always an event the neighborhood loves.   We did it the first time about 4 years ago and every year about this time the neighbors start calling to make sure we are doing it.   I think we have ourselves committed to it now.  I am usually inside the church handing out the doughnuts and apple cider that's fun.   I still get to see the kids in costume.  Last year we had so many that one of the pastors had to go buy more candy as we ran out  The rest of the year flies from here as we are so busy.

 Well he went to buy it before we ran out really.

Well until next time Happy Stitching!
