Big Skies in October and Slow Stitching Sunday

it's october and the mountain begins to change from it's peaceful summer greens to it's bright fall colors. the aspens are now leafy torches.

on this slow stitch sunday i'm working a little bit on my second stocking. 

maybe i'll use one of my fabric covered embroidered buttons on this one . . .

i have finished and delivered the first stocking. it will be auctioned in a fund raiser for our local family resource center.

Your gorgeous photo of the mountain and a glimpse of the golden aspen trees reminds me much of the foothills of Golden in Colorado, where I'd lived :). So thank you so much for this sweet memory. You make wonderful embroidery, love the stocking!. You inspire me to stitch again :).
