Still Plugging Away

Thank you for the comments to my last post.  It's coming slow but sure.   I did take a few days off to work on a baby elephant for Bryan and Chrissy's 8 month ol;d son, but I made a bad error in the beginning and didn't notice it until it was over half done so it went into the garbage.   I am completely convinced that I cannot do baby pieces.   I've made so many attempts and they've ended in the garbage.  It must be a mental block or something.   Out of 16 great nieces and nephews 2 of them have pieces and a 3rd one will get one when her grandma makes it into a pillow.  I've decided maybe by the time the kids are teenagers they'll have a piece maybe, just not a baby piece.  The picture doesn't show it well but the bells are done with metallic threads and also the blue ribbon has metalic thread with the pink in it.     I am still enjoying this piece..   It's over half done now.

We had our second week of KIA Club last night  (Kids in Action).   We had 15 the first week 14 last night.  Down one but had several new ones and those that weren't there last night we knew they were out of town at least most of them.   We use to have 70-100 kids in Adventure Club several years ago but  when we changed leaders although the format was the same the kids stopped coming then we tried a new program for a couple of years that failed miserably.   So now we have something really good again and it's just going to take time to build

We are starting to get our fall colors.  I thought it was a little early but the middle of October is jsut a couple of weeks away and that's when they are suppose to peak.   I love seeing the fall colors.   I just don't like the season that follows.  I use to love winter but the older I get the less I like it.

Well, until next time....Happy Stitching!

Your piece is coming along beautifully! Sorry about your baby piece. Odd, you do young pieces for charity very well. Do you think that doing for someone is what is stressing you out?
