By the Bay Fall SAL

I did some stitching yesterday and finished my By the Bay Fall SAL piece.



I love it! The colors are so great.



I did Rhodes stitches for the greenish brown bumps in the field and did padded satin stitches for the pumpkins.



Now I just have to get it into the frame that I picked up for this.
Thank you Donna for these generous designs.
I am still waiting on that offer email for work, the stress continues....
I hope that everyone is having a great Monday! If you haven't gotten your turkey yet, time is running out :)
