Working on November

Cottage Garden Samplings "November's Chrysanthemum" has been languishing in my UFO for a couple of months now.  I worked on it last night and managed to stitch the alternating orange and brown banner on the top and the pumpkin and pie on the bottom.  I also frogged and fixed a couple of the leaves on the left.  This pattern has a busy border and I still have much to stitch including a couple of apple, corncobs, pumpkins, a cornucopia, and yet more autumnal

Let's see how long it will take me to finish July.
