Busy weekend & a 'finish'



Wow, what a full, busy weekend! We had a friend who was home alone Friday evening, so we invited him over for supper. While he & DH talked, I worked on finishing my Autumn Harvest. I decided on a flatfold, THANKS VONNA!!, and I LOVE how it turned out!!
Sat., DH had to go visit a job site, so I tagged along. It was in the city where our youngest is at college. So, we picked him up for lunch. It was nice to spend that time with him. After lunch, I met with a friend who lives in that city! We met at a yarn shop there. They have a community knit, once a month. So, they were all knitting & I was stitching!!!! It was fun! Anne & I then went for coffee & by then, DH was ready to head home!
Today, my parents came over to see our middle child, before he leaves this week for his next Army assignment. We had a wonderful visit with everyone.
Tomorrow is going to be very quiet.
I didn't get a lot of stitching done. I am working on my ornament for the month of Oct. I am really late this month!!!
Wishing everyone a wonderful week!!!!! Enjoy this beautiful time of year!! Thanks for stopping by!

Wow Shari! It is just beautiful. I love the fabric you used for this - both the fold's fabric and the opalescent for the stitching. Autumn Harvest has turned out so pretty!

The fabric is just perfect for this! Great job!

What do you use to make the flatfold? Cardboard or foamcore?
