PostWIPocalyptica - September update

Farewell to September, and hello to autumn. Such as we get down here in Florida, anyway. It's finally getting into the low 70s at night, which is a nice change.

Almost all of my stitching this month was spent on Convent Herbal Garden, and I did finish the scrolling hedge as I had hoped. This is at 118 hours:

But wait....there's more! I also did the east gate, and am at just under 124 hours of progress. That's a staggering (for me) 22 hours of stitching this month!

I will say that Anchor Marlitt is a bit of a pain to stitch with, and I kind of wish I'd subbed Petite Treasure Braid for it, but I don't feel like frogging it now.

Hold on to your seats, because I also finished part 4 of Papillon's Around the World in 80 Stitches.

In non-stitching news, I reached my 500th consecutive treadmill/walk day yesterday. I've covered 595 miles over 210 hours. I never imagined I'd keep the streak going this long, but since I have...onward to 600!
