Finish 8...a loooong time coming

I started this piece several years ago. It jumped in and out of the q-snaps with a few bursts of enthusiastic stitching only to be replaced with a new piece I liked better. Lately it has been languishing in my work bag, coming out for 15 minutes here and there. As is usually the case, I realized it was getting very close to the end and I vowed to bring it back into the house for a concentrated run toward the long-awaited finish line.

Here it is in all its autumn glory, Bent Creek's Autumn Snapperland (and a close-up of the last frame):

I seem to be seasonally out-of-sync, as most of my finishes seem to be either Autumn or Christmas projects. I do have a few spring-y things on the q-snaps, but they have not yet grabbed me. I am sure they will soon. 

Oh and I had promised an update on Tanglewood. Unfortunately, it hasn't had any stitches added since I last mentioned it (bad, bad me). 

I finished the Hunger Games trilogy and I've been listening to an interesting audiobook, "Changing Planes" by Ursula K. Le Guin. I do enjoy her stories and this book is no different. It's almost like a collection of short stories.

Hi Sonda,

Autumn Snapperland looks fabulous!! Congrats
on finishing it. Love the border on this with all
the different types of leaves.

I don't worry about what season the piece I'm
stitching might represent ... if it represents
one at all. If it appeals to me at that particular
moment I just go ahead and do it. Which might
explain why I have so many Halloween finishes.

Wonder if the Hunger Games author is writting
a new book or something. It's been awhile
since Mockingjay came out. Great series
though rather brutal.
