Stitched!

After finishing my chores on Saturday morning....covering up the deck furniture for winter and dumping the plants that are past their prime, I sat down and finished all the back-stitching on Autumn Angel. Here she is:
Now I have to assemble her into a placard. Don't ask how old the fabric that I chose to cover the placard is. I think I have had it since the 1980's, but it is perfect for my angel.
Yesterday, I cut all the mat-board, batting and fabric and started gluing the pieces individually.
Now I just have to wait for it all to dry before I can finish the assembly. Hopefully, that will be done sometime today.

Now I have to figure out what my next slow stitching project will be. I am joining Kathy today for some Slow Sunday Stitching, but I think I will be gluing. Tomorrow I will join the Stitchery Link Party at Super Mom - No Cape. I am also joining Measi's October WIPocalypse. Pop on over to these sites to see what other bloggers are stitching.

Measi asks "What online stitch communities do you enjoy?". I would have to say that I love reading the many blogs that I follow via Blogger and Bloglovin. I love linking with the blogs that you see above as well as others. I do not belong to any online communities though. 

Happy Halloween!

Thanks for stopping by!

Very pretty finish! The fabric may be old, but it complements perfectly.
