Picking up where I left off during Autumn Jubilee, I have made a bit of progress on the Wool Runner. I wasn’t able to finish it before the end of the event, so I had to continue working on it in November.

The runner design is two sections on each end of a runner. I pinned the next sections in place.
Each end is similar but not exactly the same. The elements are the same but the colors and placement is just a bit different. I really didn’t want to have to match them up exactly.
I began stitching with the wonderful Aurifil Wool Thread, starting with the leaves that were under other leaves.
Changing colors, I continued with more leaves.
Several football games later, I thought I was done, but there is a leaf missing. It must have fallen off while I was repinning, and I found it in my chair.
I pulled some beads and trims from my stash to embellish the piece.
So, here is where I will begin today. I’ll get that last leaf stitched down, then start on the details. I still need to do the embroidery with the floss to outline the pumpkin and leaf veins, then I’ll get to the beads. I hope I can finish this piece before Thanksgiving!
