An Exchange Arrives and a Little Thriftin'

Gentle Friends, I've been down with some kind of bug for the last couple of days and have not stitched or touched the computer....  now that I'm back at about 87% I thought I would wrap up the week with a post......

I saw on the HoE that my Autumnal Exchange had arrive at Rosa's...

....  it was a fun stitch and squirrels, nuts and leaves really say Fall for me ......

Love the squirrel, great fall colors. There is nothing better than tea made in a brown teapot! My large brown atlas pot has unfortunately lost it's lid,,,,I broke years ago meant to repair and then must have said " why am I saving a broken lid?". Still the pot looks great on the kitchen counter full of daffodils in the spring.
