October was a crazy and often frustrating month, so I'm happy to have any stitching to report at all, let alone a finish. I think it was this particular design that spurred me on...when I think about my life I realize how blessed I am. And many, many of my blessings are because I have such terrific friends.

I'm just back from our 6th stitching friends' weekend in North East, Pennsylvania. North East is a sweet little town and home to lots of scenic wineries, nice little restaurants and the home of the largest plant for Welch's foods. Trains come through the town all day, many carrying payloads of grapes. Some years we get strong whiffs of grape-scented air. Pretty cool.
I took this quote directly from the Welch's website:
Home to our largest manufacturing plant, the North East location has over 350 employees who produce 280 different juices, jams, and jellies that are so distinctively Welch's. This plant manufactures over 29 million cases a year by employees working across six different packaging lines. Employees also manage up to 17 million gallons of juice in 76 refrigerated tanks throughout the year to manage an average annual harvest season of 125,000 tons of grapes delivered from 724 grower-owners in the region.
So my stitching friends and I had a wonderful weekend, stitching and eating and laughing and listening to the train whistles blow. I am really blessed!
