I am slowly adding leaves to the Halloween Topiary. I have managed to finish the right side and I am hoping to finish the top and start the left side. 
I had the wild idea that I would finish all of the leaves last weekend, but alas that was not to be. I use the needle minder to hold up the cloth on the left side so I don't get it dirty while I stitch....I use my left hand mostly to stitch.

I have been adding one or two rows to my sweater on a couple of evenings when I am not too tired. I am so happy with the way this is turning out. The pattern is so easy to follow and I think it looks great. Somehow I think the wedding day is going to be too busy for me to manage any knitting. LOL
I am hoping to get a bunch done in the car ride to our daughter's wedding at the end of the week. Maybe work on it during some free time before the rehearsal and the rehearsal dinner too. 

I am gathering items to bring with us. Katie wants the crocheted bear at the wedding as well as some of the decorations from the shower so they are waiting by the front door until we pack the car later this week.
I can't believe the wedding is almost here already. Wow!

I am joining Kathy for some Slow Sunday Stitching. Pop on over to her site to see what other bloggers are stitching.

Thanks for stopping by!
