Lust and Window update

Last week, I showed you a picture of my Window I I'm stitching with Sticklounge. I couldn't decide at the time what I was going to do with it so I put it aside for a little while and pulled out Lust instead which had been screaming at me for some attention.  Today, I've decided I've had enough of the confetti and have switched back to Window I

I've gone through my minis from the custom color forum at HDF.  I've got two different varigated colors picked out for the outside of the flowers and a couple of reds and a green.  

Yesterday, we went to visit the Indian Caves Park in southeast Nebraska.  It's about an hour and a half drive from home so that isn't too bad.  Here's some pictures that we took during our hike. 

I tried to get this little flower into focus a couple of times, but theree was just enough breeze that it wasn't cooperating.

 Here's what we saw upon entering the park.  All the trees have put on their autumn colors and it was really very pretty.

The park is right on the Missouri river and was flooded for most of the summer.  This is right along the Missouri on top of one of the hills on our hike.

 Here you can see all the colors with the river running through the bluffs.

I just thought the roots of this huge old tree looked interesting.  Couldn't you just see some little fairies or something making this home?

Where we were standing for this picture was under water this summer.  You could see the high water marks up several feet.

And my favorite pictures of the entire day.  Both my boys worn out and sleeping on the way home.

There may be another update later tonight.  Since I'm using varigated colors for Window, I'm only going to finish each square when the "lead" is complete.  There are only so many of those right now.  Then I think, I'm going to pull 1900 ABC back out.  It's sitting on my end table taunting me
