I started off the month by getting my ornament stitched up for the ornament SAL at Stitching Lotus. Of course it had to be a fall theme! Unfortunately I can't show a pic until the last Wednesday of this month so you'll just have to check back for that.
Next up, my Blackbird Designs Pumpkin Blossom pincushion.
I love how this has turned out and I'm hunting now for fabric for the backing. I can't wait until it joins the others on display in my dough bowl. I want to stitch the companion piece to this one too.
I finished this and went straight back to my other BBD, Song of Spring. Don't you just love the colours?
I've decided that this is being stitched in memory of my dear Aunt Beverly who passed away a year ago this past spring. Aunt Bev was always so supportive of me and I miss her dearly. We had both worked as healthcare professionals, she as a nurse and myself as a lab technologist, so she understood the stresses I faced in my workplace. We actually both did our training at the same hospital. She was also very supportive of my needlework and as a retirement gift she had one of my stitching finishes framed for me.
I've also been diligently working away at my Torah stitch.
I now have only half a line of text to complete and then I can start work on my borders. The borders are left up to the individual to choose although they have limited us as to which colours we can use. I've picked my border for the sides which has to be very narrow since there are only 5 spaces allotted for it. I have a little more leeway with my bottom border. I've got it narrowed down to 2 choices at this point and will decide once I'm done the main stitching.
Besides my stitching, I did a little finishing on some autumn stitches I completed last year. I finished up two little pincushions to add to my decor.

Although the joint in my hip is killing me lately I'm still trying to do a little bit of walking as it will allow. During one of my evening walks last week I spotted this in my neighbour's tree.
I don't know if she's spotted it yet but it would sure account for the large increase in the number of wasps I've seen around lately!
Thank you for each and every comment that you leave here. I do love reading them so much.
Enjoy your weekend and fall's arrival everyone!
