After a delightful day driving into and back out of the city, I came home and finished another leaf.
With tea in hand, I returned and there was the skein. It must have fallen out when I pulled out the dark color and I just didn't notice. These two aren't interested in making off with my floss so I really don't worry, but there's always a first time.
I'm thinking I'll move the hoop tomorrow. I could stitch the next two leaves and then move the hoop, but there are only 5 leaves left in this line so I might as well move the hoop now. The next leaf up will be up against the side of the hoop anyway.
It's looking better and better with each addition.
