Finishing Indian Island

Although it is lovely to wake up to the light since the time changed on the weekend, I can feel the sun getting lower at this early time of 3pm. My sewing studio where I sit to write this email is slowly darkening and when I shortly head out to retrieve the clothes from the line, there will be a noticeable chill in the air. I just came in form a walk which does help to get the blood flowing at least.
My son and his fiance are coming this weekend, so this morning I did a little extra house cleaning, wiping down the shower and doing some floors. It's a good thing we have company once in a while or the place would go the dogs!
I sat down just before lunch to put the last bits of hand embroidery on the fiber art piece of Indian Island that I started later in the  summer. In between my Christmas projects I'm trying to get some art pieces done. After lunch, I sewed on the binding and pressed and pinned it.
A detail.
Now that I'm sitting here at my old computer with my tea, I'm going to continue going through my picture files and cleaning them out. Since I primarily use my I Pad, I'm not ready to get a new computer. There was a bunch of stuff saved on it and I've been clearing it out giving the disc more more space. It should hepl it to last a bit longer.
I hope you're having a nice Tuesday!
