November Cottage Finish

Well it's already snowy and cold here as of two days ago. Made me think while I was stitching up the November Cottage that I should have done it up as a snowy month as it almost always is here in Calgary.
While I didn't do snow in Nov, I did change a number of things in it. I was feeling like there was a lot of red in the bottom half of the calendar and wanted to add in a different color. That is where the purple came from in Nov. Also Canadian Thanksgiving is in October, not November like the US so I removed the turkey and changed up the acorns to be a bit less symmetrical and a bit more random. As autumn (my fave season) is much more random with leaves everywhere than most other seasons. Here's my version of the November cottage:







I'm still off work but have some good opportunities I'm waiting to hear on. And an interview lined up for Friday at the job that was at the top of my list to work at! So it's going alright, albeit very, very slow. Luckily we're still doing fine and unemployment insurance payments should kick in very soon. I'm confident I will be working again full-time soon enough.
Thank you to everyone for your well wishes last time and hopefully by my next update I will get to tell you about how I'm starting a new job!

I love your changes, they really work. Good luck on your interview on Friday. I went thru a really bad patch a few years ago being unemployed and then underemployed for almost a year and then I landed a great job. Don't give up although I know its hare. BTW, your dragon is stunning!!
