We continued with our lovely fall hike talking about the colors of the leaves, collecting acorns, and trying to coax a lazy four year old up a tiny hill (which resulted on a shoulder ride from dad).
When we reached the top of the hill we stumbled upon the aftermath of a "haunted hayride" from the night before!
Well hello kind sir. You seem to be in a bit of a pickle.
I gather you had a rough night.
(I was truly shocked that there were no tears from either of my kids. Especially this one. My younger one thought he was "funny" but wanted to be held and didn't want to get too close to him. Here I have carefully protected them from anything remotely scary on TV or in movies and come to find out she's tough as nails!)
Enjoying the beautiful fall foliage?
We would love to "hang" out with you lovely gentleman some more but we need to get back.
Good bye! See you next year!
OK, on to my first embroidery project.
Hopefully the next photo will not be as frightening.
When I was in Washington visiting my family this summer I asked my mom to teach me to embroider. She picked up one of the pillowcases with the pattern on it already from Micheals. I love it! It reminds me of some of the pillowcases that I slept on as a child. Some made by my mom, some by my grandmother. The stitches are not perfect but it's not bad for a first try. I learned how to do the Lazy Daisy, Pop Corn, and Stem stitches. I also learned that I LOVE embroidery! How did I live almost 39 years without trying this?
