It was 45 degrees when I got up this morning. We've had a much cooler August that I ever remember with temps in the 70s and very few making it into the 80s. It feels strange and it's got everyone worried it will be an early winter. Even if I do managed to finish my Lotus Blossom tank by the end of the month, I think it might be too cool to wear it!
There are lots of these dropping all over the place and I'm really starting to see the leaves of the maples turning on my way to work. Can I just say I'm not ready for that yet?
However, I am getting ready for my favorite fall holiday! I picked this up on my way back from Cape Cod a few weeks ago in the hopes that it would get my stitching mojo going again. I love Halloween stitching. It didn't work immediately but last week I picked up a UFO and started stitching again.
And here is where I am after some weekend stitching. Tonight I need to give my knitting some attention but this one is tempting me to keep going so it can be framed and ready for Halloween - this year!
On another note, some of us are a bit under the weather. Beau had an emergency vet visit on Friday because he couldn't sit down and was carrying his tail like it was broken. Turns out I'm the worst pet mom ever because he had several different issues going on that I was clueless about and required some medications and the dreaded collar to prevent him from further aggravating the hotspot on his tail.
He looks so pitiful and I didn't last long with him making him wear the collar. He's doing much better but I think his feelings are quite hurt at being made to look so embarrassing.
