Well, I had hoped to complete half of this piece this month, basically all but the butterflies, so the autumn foliage and berries in keeping with the theme for the month, but I only managed a couple of mediocre-ly worked berries and let my piece gather dust - literally! Things did not go according to plan this last month, with this or other things.
Speaking of other things, thanks very much to those who sent some comforting clucks and pats on the shoulder last time. I really appreciated that.=) I feel a lot better now, even though it's not fully cleared up yet and isn't likely to be for some weeks yet, People get bees in their bonnets about nothing, then go and do dumb things and sometimes others get very much caught up in and hurt by it.
OK, back on topic.
I'm happy to say that I wasn't working alone this month with the NQ as Wendy has been working on her 12 month hardanger piece and has completed the September block. I'm assuming it's not that the blocks themselves are seasonal, but that it's meant to be a block worked per month? I missed any earlier segments, so I'm not sure, but it's very pretty and was worth Wendy's hard work on it.=)
So, yeah, September hasn't been the best on a few fronts, but I'm still alive and kicking and hoping to progress my two current projects substantially, plus do some work on October's NQ theme (more on that tomorrow) and to be able to share more pretties with you all in the weeks to come.
