Just a quick post

to show my Halloween Eve cross stitch piece all framed and ready for next month.  If you look closely you can see the sparkle in the threads of the Aida cloth.

I did 12 qts. of tomatoes yesterday and sent the peaches, cucumbers, and grapes with my youngest daughter.  Fall is a mixed blessing. . . so many good things to eat. . . so much work to preserve it.

Your Halloween stitch is wonderful. It's great in the fall when we can harvest fruits and vegetables. I have not so much in my garden, but are lucky to receive a lot of apples from friends garden.
