Finish Thirty-Nine

Hot off the Q-Snaps! This is Thankfulness by Imaginating -

I love these charts! For my color combination I used 28 count sage Jobelan with DMC 780. I was hoping there would be another autumn design that I could match up with it. Maybe next year :o)

The leaves are starting to come off the trees now but they had put on a lovely color show all month. DH and I went to the park in town and walked through the woods. Of course I didn't bring my camera so I missed the perfect opportunity to take a picture of a woodpecker that nearly flew into DH's head. LOL!

DH and I finally gave in and turned on the heat this past Monday. Our goal is always November 1 but seeing as my toes were purple and my hands were too cold to stitch, I figured it was about time. I think our little heater, Brie, will be used quite a bit this winter ;o)

Is that a gorgeous piece or WHAT?!!
I too had to give in Wednesday and turn the hot water furnace on. I was wearing slippers and sewaters and still feeling like I would never be warm. Then today we get warm and humid... whut's with THAT? lol.

Love the stitching and the photography! You have such a great eye for your compositions and they all fit so well.

Purple toes isn't good! We've had our furnace 'on' in the mornings to take the chill off the house for about 3 weeks. Some mornings the house is only 12- too cool for my comfort! I can relate to purple toes and still fingers!

DH finally consented to turning the heat on as well. I prefer to not have to wear my coat in the house.
