If I hadn't been tied up with sorting stuffed cabbage for family and freezer, the sack would have been done. I'm sorry I didn't go brighter on the stars but maybe that would have been too stark. A darker green on the sack wasn't visible, maybe backstitching will accent them. Then again, have a piece of candy and don't worry about it. Wait until it's finished! May just be enough contrast, muted, not eye-catching.
I love dark linens, but doing a design like this can really create problems with color. In a sampler, anything goes, but I didn't even consider the sack when choosing this linen. From now on, I will try to choose floss before starting. Not many color options and this odd Gunmetal blue was a bugger. Charcoal Belfast would have been a cinch. His cane will just be a brown of some sort.
Took the laptop back to Staples and a very nice tech checked it and said .... you need a new modem from the cable company. After hours and hours, no one from any of the other tech help mentioned it. So I went to TWC and changed to a new modem, the new laptop works. Unfortunately, I can't receive emails, comments, updates. The only thing I'm receiving is heartburn.
Not one little trick or treater again this year. We remember when the streets were filled with kids, we saw very few for the last 10 years. On the way home from getting the modem, we did see a small group in town, a teenage mother was costumed and had an infant in the stroller.
I worked on a few sets, thought I had 10 left but I only have 7. One is very colorful and being a drabby crabass, you would think I wouldn't like it. I do.
Hoping to get them attached and sprayed tomorrow but we've got to take Carole to Mercer again and then Apple Castle. THE best cider. But we haven't visited White House Fruit Farm in Ohio (http://www.whitehousefruitfarm.com/farm-market) for a few years, maybe they are as good or even better. Both have apple orchards and make their own, White House is much larger with wonderful varieties of condiments, popcorns, veggies, everything.
Bud's worn out from raking leaves.
Have a good week.
Thanks for visiting.
