We’re at the end of October and I just can’t believe it, can you?! The trees are beginning to change colors here in Alabama and it looks like we’re going to have a beautiful fall.
Cooler weather is finally here, too. In fact, we turned the heat on this past weekend and I brewed my first cup of hot apple cider tea just yesterday morning.
and that means pulling out the hand-knit blankies and my grandmother’s quilts, the cinnamon spice candles, and, of course, the electric tea kettle. I love a warm tasty cuppa in the morning when the temperature drops.
How about you? What’s your favorite cold weather beverage? Hot tea and hot chocolate are my favorites.
Bright yellow mums, vivid orange pumpkins, ruby red apples, golden bales of hay – signs of fall everywhere!
I thought I had all the threads I needed, but I changed my mind about some of them. Do you ever do that?
Here are a few of the threads I’m going with now…
I can hardly wait to dive into stitching this happy canvas! It’s getting my full attention – right after I wrap up the project I’m doing for the spring issue of Making magazine.
I already have some ideas whirling around in my head for what I’m going to do. I’ll share some of my notes – and my progress – with you when I start. 😊
And if you want to see my progress on the Tuscaloosa canvas, just click here. I’m nearly finished with it!
Before I go, there are some housekeeping things I want to share with you, too.
one for needlepoint and embroidery and one for knitting and crochet. (I’d love to have you join me in one – or both – if you aren’t already a member. Just click the link(s) above to hop over and request to join.)
I added the new yarn group so you’ll have a place to gather with other kindred spirits who share your love of knitting and crochet – and so that you’re receiving the best in curated content for your favorite hobby.
Going forward, new blog posts will be published on Tuesday morning instead of Thursday morning. And the reason I’m switching around the schedule is… (cue the drumroll)
I’ll be hosting FB Lives every Thursday afternoon at 3:00 p.m. Central time in our Serendipity Needleworks groups, beginning next month!
Here’s the schedule for November…
That means there won’t be an issue of NeedleNotes or a blog post next week, so….
I’ll see you back here on Tuesday, November 6th, bright and early.
In the meanwhile, have a wonderful rest of your day and Happy Stitching!
PS: What do you do to cozy up your house for fall and winter? Tell me in the comments box below and I’ll add your name to the drawing for an exclusive Serendipity Needleworks needle minder. I can’t wait to hear from you! ❤️
It’s great to see you again! I don’t know what the weather is like in your neck of the woods, but it’s pretty doggone hot here in Alabama. In fact, it’s hard to believe that Saturday marks the first day of fall! Maybe today’s stitches and threads will put a nip in the air. Whaddya’ say we dive in and unpack the last four threads (and stitches!) from the 2018 Threadventure: Parisian stripe, double Parisian, snowflake darning pattern, and couching?
Oh – and if, perchance, you’re new to the Serendipity family and don’t know what I’m talking about, click here to get the low-down on the 2018 Threadventure.
I’m so happy to have you here with me today! 😊Are you ready to dive into 4 more decorative canvas work stitches and threads from the Threadventure thread kit? Yippee! Me, too!!!
What’s that? You don’t have a Threadventure thread kit. Well, that’s okay. You’ll still get lots of terrific info to help you stitch with more confidence than ever!
Oh – and if you don’t know what the heck the Threadventure is, click here to learn more about it.
