I really got my mileage out of this stencil The first pix shows it using the stencil just the way it is and the next five are either additions or subtractions or both. I had fun with this one. But then I aways have fun.

Six squares done this week in spite of spending way too much time on my new addiction, watercolor. More about that later. Again, I relied on my great stencil set, doing variations of each.

Six squares done this week, all using my stencils.
This enormous sculpture was big enough to walk under.
I had foolishly forgotten to charge my phone the night before and I was almost out of battery power and so was able to take very few pictures. The Gardens are fabulous at any time of the year, but especially beguiling when they have a special exhibit. This exhibit is on until the end of October.
According to NYC regulations, we were required to show proof of vaccinations and a photo ID. Masks were required at all indoor spaces. Hooray for NY's sensibilities! We felt very safe.

I had a good stitching week (seven squares) in spite of time spent finishing my Christmas cards. I made a total of 50 with 5 different designs. I'm glad that is behind me even though I love making them.
I made four squares using my stencils and three that were labor intensive using pistol stitch (a French Knot with a tail) and regular French knots.

I only made four squares this week and even had two days of no stitching (gasp!) I was busy doing this and that and a full day excursion interfered. I used those aforementioned stencils on these four squares.
The show will be up until October 29, so if you are in Southwestern Connecticut, please stop in.
