I don't know what it is about fall that gets me thinking about needlework. Maybe it's adapting to the fact that much more indoor time is around the corner, and I'm looking for fun tactile projects to keep me occupied in the hours that I had been spending in the garden. I attended a rug-hooking show last weekend, which got that itch going again. When I went hunting for the wool I purchased at that show a year ago, I found a pile of little embroidery projects that I had cranked out in about a 2-week period at this time last year. It was fun to see them again - I think I will keep them out and in view for a while!
