Harvest Moon...

Good Monday morning, dear friend!

I hope that this new week finds you refreshed from the weekend, or at least exhausted but happy...

First for the Harvest, and then for the Moon...

Despite the soaring temps, my tomatoes have been going like gangbusters...



These are "Chocolate Covered Cherry," one of my heirloom varieties...they are not showing up in the pic as brown as they really are...they really do taste like a chocolate covered cherry! Thanks to Pa for the both the "harvesting" and the pic.

Now, on to the Moon...

I spent last week, and this past weekend working on AAN "Spring Moon," and I am pleased with my progress. I just love when a WIP begins to take the shape of the design and begins to reveal it's "personality."


It reminds me of those Big coloring books from my childhood that featured designs that we colored in with felt markers, which were old school originals of todays "Adult coloring books." However, as it was the 60s and we were kids, we had no idea that we were either relaxing, or for that matter stressed...who knew back then.

This has been really fun to stitch, as the color changes with each small design, which allows for frequent change, and therefor my attention from becoming deficient. I also adore the bright DMC colors! I should be switching to the next WIP in my rotation, but I am really enjoying this design so I decided to stay with it for a while longer...I'll keep you posted on my progress.

Thanks for stopping by for a visit, dear friend.

Hugs

I love the bright colors of your spring moon! It certainly does look like a page out of one of the adult coloring books!

Karyn, I've never heard of the chocolate covered cherry tomatoes. I am dying to try one now. I'll have to do some hunting and see if I can find them anywhere. I love the design you're stitching right now. I remember coloring for hours as a little girl. I haven't tried one of these new-fangled coloring books yet because my stitching and quilting seem to fill that void. They are definitely my stress relievers. --Andrea

Our tomatoes are just starting to ripen after a cool summer.

Spring Moon looks gorgeous. Such a colourful design - and I can easily understand that you didn't want to put it down for the next rotation piece. That's how all my rotation plans go out the window, lol.
