Great to be back home! It was a long weekend here in Canada for Thanksgiving, so I spent the weekend up at my cottage. No stitching to be had, but did a little work around the yard and inside, but mostly spent time outdoors with the dogs, as the weather was beautiful! It was very warm for October, so swimming was in order! For the dogs anyways, the water was a little cold for me!


Dokota loves to swim, so she spent most of the weekend in the water, with mommy on the shore throwing sticks.

Here is a great shot from my front door, showing the fall colors, and how inviting the water looked!



On to the stitchy details...I am hoping to have a post up on Wednesday for Ascendant (finally!) as I plan on working on her for the rest of the nite, but am working late tomorrow nite, so will have to wait to post my progress until Wednesday. A big thank you to Ewa, for introducing me to all you wonderful stitchers! I was so excited to read your comments and suggestions! I ended up doing a test square with the Kreinik, DMC Light Effects, and DMC B5200 to see which I liked. I finally decided on the DMC Light Effects, as the section that I am working on is the start of her wings, and I really wanted to keep the sparkle there.

So I am off to do some stitching, talk to you all soon!
