Page 13 done!

Good Afternoon! I finally have page 13 done! I didn't do a lot of stitching this week. It really hasn't been a good week, but it's getting better.

I ordered the fabric for Autumn Bell Pull but for some reason it's delayed in Grand Rapids, says they found a problem. Hoping it will be corrected and proceed on to me. I'm thinking maybe the package broke open or the material tore in one of the machines, or it was too bulky for machine, who knows. So in the mean time I'm going to do this dump truck from Cyber Stitchers for Quilts for Older Children and Adults.

Well....until next time happy stitching!

I fell off the wagon!

Good morning! It was these two patterns that made me fall off the wagon! I saw the Spring one and loved it. And since they had Autumn I got that one too. I don't think the have Summer and Winter out yet, but when they do I'll be getting them. I wanted to start Autumn but didn't have a long enough piece of material so I ordered it from 123 stitch. It'll be here at end of week I hope.

Well I need to get off and head for church. Until next time Happy Stitching!

Where is October going?

Well...October is just flying by and I've posted very little this month. I've been stitching a lot on this piece. Now that the worse of it is done, I think the rest of this piece will go quicker. Right now I have about 750 hours of stitching in and it's a little over half done. I love working on this piece.

I had really thought I would get some fall pieces in. I might yet. I fell of the wagon. I ordered 2 leaflets by Stoney Creek one was a Spring Bell Pull and the other an Autumn one. In Nov. I might start the Autumn on we'll see. When my sister was here she asked me to do a Christmas Bread Cover so I need to do that. I'd like to have it done before she comes again so she has it for Christmas.

It's hard to believe Tuesday it will be a year that our mom died. It was on Sat. my brother came and got me from the cat shelter and said she took a turn for the worse. She died 2 days later.

This weekend we are having a pot luck at church tomorrow to meet the candidate for Youth and Christian Ed Director and her husband then Sunday we'll vote on her.

Yesterday I went on a color tour and we stopped to eat. There were only 5 of us but we had a nice time. Unfortunately this year the winds have been so strong and it's been cold we didn't get much color this year. Most of the leaves died or were blown off the trees before they had a chance to change color. But we saw some color anyway.

Well...until next time Happy Stitching.

Page 9 is done. Seven pages to go!

Good evening! I finished page 9 a couple of hours ago. I love this page and can't wait to do the following pages. It's showing more personality now and more colors too. I am almost half done with this piece and right now I have no desire to lay it down so hopefully I will finish page 13 before I lay it back down to do Christmas things.

There really isn't much going on so this is a short post. Until next time......Happy Stitching!
