Hello again.

September is almost gone.  I have been reading blogs, stitching and reading...just not posting very often.

Since my last post, I finished Geranium House by Country Cottage Needleworks.  Not framed, but stitching is done.  I did a small freebie, Crows.  I did find some fabric to make it into a small pillow, hopefully will sew it up soon.  Then, I stitched 'Jolly Jack' by Prairie Moon.  I didn't have the overdyed threads the chart called for, so I substituted my own.  I like the way it turned out.  I'm not sure if I will frame it or sew it into a pillow. 

I picked up Silent Night by Little House Needleworks, one of the monthly ornament charts the other day, so I've been stitching that.  I haven't decided which project I want to stitch after that one.  I do have a few to choose from..... ha! 

We went for a drive Sunday, but the trees haven't started to change too much yet.  Maybe in another week they will be putting on a better show.

Mike took this photo at a nearby State Park.  He will have to go back after the trees change color a bit more.

I love Fall weather.  We've been busy around home, trying to clean out the basement...and our daughter has been working on her large walk in closet. I've made a couple of trips to Goodwill to drop off unwanted items, which is a 'good thing' as Martha says.

I have a week off work next week, so hope to get a few more things accomplished around here. 

I'm sorry I don't have any stitchy pictures to share.  Hopefully by next time, I will have taken some to share.

Happy Stitching!


  1. Congratulations on the finish! I can't wait to see pics of that and your Crow pillow, too.

    Beautiful nature photo! The leaves started turning here early--I need to get some photos before another big rain storm blows them all down!

  2. Looking forward to seeing your finish and all. Nice pic from your drive too!
