Japanese Garden Update

I hope everyone had a great weekend!

Last week I worked on Japanese Garden and finished off the top bridge. One down, three more to go. This piece is really starting to come together now that I am on the home stretch. I also changed the color of the bridge. It was supposed to be Mississippi Mud by Thread Gather, but my thread was crap (as in not dyed all the way through), so I used Espresso Waterlilies instead. The bridge has a bit more red to it which I like.

After working on all those bamboo leaves (which took longer than I thought they would), I decided I needed something a bit easier. So, I finished a Halloween ornament from Cats, Bats, and Witches by Prairie Schooler over the weekend. I also wanted another ornament for my Halloween tree :)

This week I will be working on Lady Hera and maybe another Halloween ornament. I like fall and Halloween, can you tell?

Thanks for stopping by, and have a great week!
