Can it really be? Are we really having days that are in the 90's? The forecast this week tells us that it will be all 90's and no triple digits. Well now, this is good news around here. It means that soon I will back outside and that Mr H will get the yard back in order and ready for new plants. Although not a very cool morning, I am sitting here with the kitchen slider open and listening to a conversation between parent Gamble Quails and their teen-aged youngsters. We classify the baby quail as they mature. This group is almost ready to leave their parents.
Yesterday was our monthly stitch group meeting...show and tell was/is always the highlight.
This is Sunny and her beautiful Coi. She converted this project from needlepoint to cross stitch and found just the right color matches to make it work.
One of talented ladies, Anne brought a few garments and this queen size quilt...
Anne is accomplished in many areas of stitching and this is Sashiko. In January she will be teaching a few of us in this decorative stitching. She has written, along with a friend Pauline, a book with many of the patterns. Can't wait to learn several of these stitches.
Tomorrow I will introduce you to two other ladies and their fine work. I am still working on My Lady and hope to get it finished this week. Things just seem to get in the way! As much as I love having more than one project going at a time, sometimes I stitch on none of them! It is a pleasure to have you visit and wonderful of you to take the time to leave kind words. Enjoy your day.

Such talent! Since picking up cross stitching I've really started to appreciate the sheer patience needed for some of these huge projects!
