Still stitching on Wedding Bells

It's been a couple of weeks since I posted.   Mostly because I really hadn't had time to stitch that much on this plus working with metallic threads really slow you down.   The bells are completely done using blending filament with 1 strand of floss.  Not my favorite thing to do  Metallic thread is not easy to stitch with.  I have found using shorter threads does help. 
Tomorrow my sister is coming in to town for a couple of days.   Wed. we'll go do some shopping.  I'm hoping to go to Jo Anne's and get some floss  and also some 4 braid thread for my next project.   I'm doing a Halloween piece   a cat sitting on some pumpkins.  Also by Stoney Creek.   I must like Stoney Creek as I've done well over 50 of their patterns.

Saturday I'm going Apple picking with our SS class.   I've never done that before so am looking forward to it    Only it's suppose to be done in the 50's Sat.  Brrrr....after having 70's for a few days.

I don't get into sports too much but I really am happy the Detroit teams are tunrning things around.   After loosing so much the last few years, this year so far has been great.   Especially the Tigers and Lions.   So I'm rooting for them.

Well....untill next time Happy Stitching!

Your bells are looking great!

Enjoy apple picking. I used to do it every year, but haven't been able to lately.
