The season's SAL..."Autumn"

WOW! I can't believe i haven't posted at all for the month of October! The past months actually has flown by so quickly. Since i started working last May, it has been crazy busy at work as well as at home caring for the kids and house, that no energies left for hobby! First time in years that i haven't join any exchanges which i am glad i didn't sign to any at all, only the prizes for the monthly ornament SAL on one of the yahoo group...which i am way behind!

First time in months that i got a day-off on a monday, yesterday...so i took the chance of finishing the Autumn season SAL. I've manage to stitched bit by bit during my off days and when hubby was here a few weeks ago. He's away for 8 weeks this time, really long but hope he'll have a longer off too when he comes home.

Hope the receiver of the flatfold will like it. I am not really satisfied with the ribbon but couldn't find a better one...



Thanks to all who visited especially to all who had took the time to leave me a comment. I really really appreciate it.

I'm so sorry your work week is so busy, Mylene, but glad you're managing to squeeze in at least some time for yourself and your lovely stitching :)

Lillie said...

Oh Yes! I understand your situation pretty well. Welcome to the workforce! LOL.

The flatfold is a perfection. I am a bit envy here !! its one finishing that I have yet and never dare to attempt. It looked difficult and too much work and thinking about putting it together is kinda scary ;P Take care there!

Julie said...

Beautiful flatfold, it looks superb. I really must try one of these type of finishes

Sue said...

Mylene, it is so good to see you post, both on the group and on your blog!

I LOVE your flatfold; you do such beautiful work and your finishing is impeccable.

Hopefully, you will be able to slow down a bit soon and get more of your stitching finished!

Hugs,
Sue

Mylene, how great to see you back. It's often impossible to get busy with a hobby when you are working full time and have a home and kids to care for. I know what you talk about. But it's good to see that you find time to stitch every now and then. Your flatfold looks fantastic! I love this seasonal SAL.
