I've started stitching the inside of the fireplace in basketweave using DMC perle 5. I also stitched the left-hand wall beside the fire place. I've finished the second angel and only lack the French knot trim on the 3rd one, The candle glow is nobuko, again using DMC perle 5. The flame is silk lame braid. Now that October is here, my stitching time is reduced, both by working an additional day, and having the snowbirds drifting back to open their homes for the winter. Marcia's back in town with her new puppy. She always takes several weeks to get settled and get her lawn in shape before she starts working. She'll be in the shop the end of the month.
