Beautiful Sunday

Hello stitching friends!

What a beautiful day here in central Illinois today! What a welcome change from those awfully hot days in July.

I've spent some time on and off stitching on 'all hallows eve' by prairie schooler. I think I will like this one when finished. Not very many color changes tho, lots of 3371...

Forgive the wrinkles please. I just took a quick picture with my iPad.

Mike and I went for a ride to some marsh land south of where we live, near the Illinois river today. You can really notice the drought, the water levels are way down. However I think Mike got some good pictures of some Heron Cranes. It was a beautiful day for a ride.

On Saturday we drove along on a Memorial ride in honor of one of our son's high school classmates that died during their senior year of high school. Our son organized the event and had tshirts designed for purchase with the proceeds going to a suicide prevention organization. We were proud of our son for putting this all together.

The weekends always seem to fly past so quickly!

Hope all of you had fun and were able to spend some time stitching!

Happy Stitching!

  1. I love your stitching! That is so wonderful that your son did that in memory of his friend. A beautiful thing to do.

  2. I love your Halloween project! You must be very proud of your son!

  3. What a special thing for your son to organize, Melody... My son went through the same thing with a classmate his senior year in high school and it was just heartbreaking.

    Your PS piece is so cute--can't wait to see it all finished up!

  4. I love the piece you're working on, Melody! It's going to be fantastic when finished. So sorry about your son's friend but what a wonderful thing for your son to put together.
