Cross Stitch and Fall Comes to the Market!

Thanks for joining me today.  I hope this will be a fun post to read.  I was shopping at my favorite market(Central Market in Poulsbo) the other day and I noticed all the seasonal beer and ales.  I thought it would be fun to show you all that I found! 
In the cross stitch world, I'm making great progress with Caleb's Halloween design.  My goal is to have it done by Mon. Then we can get it framed and off to the dear boy!

 I have a few more motifs by the fence, buttons, beads, long stitches, and spider webs to add.

 The entrance to the market.



Some of these cabbage heads weigh 25 pounds.  They are for making sauer- kraut.

 Here comes the beer and ales!












Now here is my problem.  I recently joined a group at the Y.  It is designed to prevent diabetes.  I have it in my family.  I need to loose 7% of my body weight.  Unfortunately that means no or very little beer!!!
I hope all of you have a terrific week-end!! Thanks for joining me!

  12. Thank you for all the nice comments about the witch! I've inherited my talents from my lovely mother! Beautiful piece for Caleb- it looks fun.
    By the way, Kevin says that the Rouge beer in the orange bottle was very good!

    I'm not a beer drinker, but my husband brews his own and considers himself quite the connoisseur! I will definitely show him this post!

  15. I love the witch in your header! How cute is she. Great progress on your stitching and I am sure Caleb will love it. I am off to my local Central Mkt to find some of those. It doesn't feel like fall here in Houston, but maybe I could taste some.

  16. That market looks great. You know, when TraderVic and I were in New York I saw the hugest oranges - the large cabbages remind me of them.
