Thanks for all the pumpkin comments! The trick or treaters really liked them too:) They're really not that hard to carve, just take some patience and a steady hand. We did use template from Pumpkin Masters. My family's been collecting their patterns for quite a few years now so we have a pretty wide selection as they come out with at least one new booklet every year.
Another new month already so it's goal time again. Last month went pretty well in the stitching area but outside stuff just didn't work out between all the rain we got and the health problems I had toward the end of the month.
-Finish QS Dragonfly-Yes
-Participate in the month-long TW SAL with my Nativity WIP-I'm planning on doing about a length of thread every time I sit down to stitch- I participated but didn't get as much done as I wanted to.
-Participate in the HAED SAL Challenge weekend- Yes, but barely. I didn't get too much done that weekend.
-Stitch some on Santa's Magic- Yes, I've made good progress on Santa.
-Get bulbs planted out front-No
-Cut down dying plants for the winter if it gets cold enough and they look dead enough:)- Started to but got off track with the rain and migraine/neck issues.
-Get out and look at some living room furniture already, we've been talking about it for months now- Yes! And we even bought some:)
-Walk Leland at least 3 times a week-No, rain and migraine stuff got me off track here too.
