Slow Sunday Stitching Progress

A little more was completed on my Mystery Autumn Stamp SAL.


The word "Autumn" is finally complete.  I made a little more progress on the stamp borders too.

I been stitching along with Melissa at Pinker n Punkin Quilting & Stitching.  This is her Mystery Autumn Stamp SAL.  

But wait, there's more.  Friday after school brought beautiful weather for some magnet fishing.  I finally got the kid outside to magnet fish using his temporary wheel chair.  I wrapped his cast in a garbage bag so that he didn't get lake water in it.  He was frustrated at first while trying to magnet fish.  But he has become so patient as he matures into an awesome teenager.  (For those of you that don't know, magnet fishing is when you throw a magnet on a rope into the water hoping to find something metal like fishing lures and such.  He finds some interresting things.  You can check out his YouTube channel.  Here's a link to a video of how magnet fishing helps him learn a lesson in patience:  

...and yes, I know the rake is messed up in my stitching.  I'm going to take the opportunity to do a "design change" and make that a place for a little crow to sit vs. tearing out the rest of the handle.  LOL.  Remember, I'm still a rookie at cross stitch.  But I enjoy it during "wait" times.

I'm linking up at Kathy's Quilts for Slow Sunday Stitching.

Good idea on the design improv. I hadn't noticed it before I read about it. Magnet fishing sounds like fun. ;^)

Your stitchery is looking great! I was unhappy with how mine was looking but I should just power through, and the practice will help me get better I hope. So glad he was able to get some fishing time in - looks like fun!

Your stitching looks great. If you didn't point it out, I probably wouldn't have realized the rake was a little wonky. I like the crow idea. Your son looks like he is enjoying himself. That is a great activity when he is stuck in the wheelchair right now.

Lovely stitching. I have never heard of magnet fishing, but he looks happy.

Magnet fishing, I've not heard of this before but can imagine it would bring up some interesting finds. Your cross stitch is coming along well.

Your Autumn stitching is progressing nicely.
