Autumn is Definitely Here - not just in Golden Wood

Have been working a lot recently - now that it is May that means going to work in the dark and coming home in the dark!!  Got up this morning and realised that the beautiful Tallowood trees in my front garden have gone yellow (seemingly overnight) I am quite sure they were green only the other day (not exactly sure when that "other day" was mind you.....!!!!!)  But look.....


There appears to be a certain theme in my life at the moment - it is AUTUMN in a big way - trees and cross stitch.  I have finished another page of Golden Wood (where it appears to be perpetual Autumn) after much fiddling about with other things, and also getting a disgusting cold.  So I am now back in the land of the living and getting on with Golden Wood.  I have also started a small HAED Lady in a Meadow - on 25 ct evenweave.  My god it is small.....had to go out and get some of those reading glasses from the $2 shop so that I could actually see the little holes.....see the recurring theme my body is in it Autumn also. Better get stitching and finish Golden Wood and all the other charts and projects before dementia sets in..... AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!

  4. It looks absolutely gorgeous! I got the shock of my life the first time I worked on 25count, it's so small. And now I'm alternating between 14 count and 25 count and it's making me crack up I swear.
    Where do you live? I got really puzzled when you started talking about Autumn and going to work in the dark, it just didn't twig that you might live in a different country, it's obviously been in a long day. In the UK we've just hit spring and light, sorry to sound smug!

  5. Hi girls thank you for your comments...once you commit yourself to the smaller count fabric - that's it - but I must say the end result, even the small amount I have done does look beautiful...smooth AND MINISCULE!!! Hi Demeter I'm in Sydney Australia...don't feel too sorry for me going into winter though....we get lots of light in the summer..........LOTS. Happy stitching to you all

  7. We've just came out of one of our worst winters ever over here, hmm Australia in autumn sounds pretty appealing to me.

  8. Hello Ryan...having been to both Glasgow and Edinburgh...I can safely say that one of our ordinary days in a Sydney winter is about the same as a nice summer day in Edinburgh...but to be fair I did get a suburnt forehead in London in August!!!!!
