The Day of the Leaf

Just a quick post before going off to do some stitching.  Tomorrow is the end of the month, and I  had set some goals for myself.  One was to have Block 2 of Village of Hawk Run Hollow done, and another was to have Part 2 of the Birds of a Feather Mystery Sampler finished.  I am at a place with both pieces where I need to stitch leaves, lots and lots of leaves.  Leaves and stems are right up there with alphabets as far as I'm concerned...they all give me the heebie-jeebies.  So, I have decided to sit down today and face my fears, and stitch each and every one of those leaves!  Here are a couple of pictures I took a few minutes ago of both pieces "before leaves".  I hope to be able to show a picture tomorrow "with leaves".



Wish me luck !  Hope you're staying cool!

Good luck!! I find that leaves are never ending--that and filling in on houses. Of course, I love stitching houses and trees, so it's a double edged sword. ;)
