Crabby for Autumn

I'm exhausted.

Do you see the huge pile of Leaves I've had to deal with this month? It must be Autumn if there are this many leaves about! My favorite time of year. Crabby All Year's Leaves was fun and although that enormous leaf pile was a booger, it went really quickly once I settled myself to it.


Now for the requisite quarterly photo of Crabby All Year. This one means I am three quarters finished! WooHoo!


Truly enjoying this project. I don't think I've ever had as much fun with a project. I will be rather sad when this year is over and Crabby is finished. What could I ever stitch next year that could top this???

Thank you for visiting my blog today!

Congratulations on raking all the Leaves, and your stitching is beautiful! This sampler looks like so much fun, yes, I will have to stitch this next year.

I think that's probably the funniest (and truest) project I've ever seen - it makes me laugh!

Dee said...

Wow! Not only are you almost done Crabby All Year, but that means our year is almost gone too.

It went by so fast!

Carol said...

Oh, it is getting cuter with each month--can't wait to see the rest of the year :)

Missy Ann said...

Looking good! Thankfully this is the last booger pile on the piece. Well the check is a bit on the large side, but it's the last thing you'll stitch. It goes so quickly.

Are you anxious to start October? Zombies was my *favorite* month of all.

Still thinking about a monthly project for next year. Do I go big again like HoHRH? Or do I go fun like Crabby?

Glenna said...

Oh! I noticed the black thing when you posted last and wondered what it was, and now I know it's a trash bag for the leaves! Hee! So cute!!! I have the design started, but I've only bought 2 of the strips, (Jan-March and April-June).

Looks so wonderful so far, I can't believe it's almost the end of September already!

Lisa said...

I actually stitched on April on Monday! I know - shocker! If I do one a week I should catch up. Right? Right.

Chars said...

It looks great :) I would have to re-arange the months though if I stitched it since our seasons are different to yours...

Where do you get the pattern?

Kathy A. said...

Now that you are well versed in raking leaves, wanna come and rake some for me. The leaves are just starting to fall from the trees and I could use a little help lol.
Beautiful job. Love this one!!
