Good Monday morning,
I don't know about you, but to me there is just something special about Monday mornings. They are always a fresh start for me.
Fresh starts...oh my! That makes me think I need to make a fresh start on a new stitching project. I have found so many adorable freebies lately that I can't decide where to begin. I want to stitch them all!!!
I HAVE started two new projects since my last post. I started Amish Rules by Heart in Hand. It is an older design, but I saw it finished on the 123 board a few weeks ago & fell in love. I was able to get the pattern for a good price from the lady who finished it, so I did! This will be added to my Amish wall.
Next, I was sorting/organizing all of my magazines. Big mistake!!!!! I see more & more that I want to stitch. Most of them, I was able to tell myself....later. BUT....one autumn piece just SCREAMED at me to stitch it NOW!!!!!!!! So, I gathered supplies & did just that!!! I started it immediately. It is in the Leisure Arts Cross Stitch magazine...volume 6 issue, 19. It is called Signs of Fall.
I had just barely started this & the next ornament RR package came in the mail. Being an organized stitcher & a stitcher who puts obligations ahead of her own stitching, I put those 2 projects aside & started the ornament. It took a lot longer than I anticipated it would, but I am happy to report that I finished it on Sat. Afternoon.
I then pulled the flosses for Sylvia's Oct. SAL piece. I started & finished this in one setting Sat. night. I love this project...each month it seems Sylvia comes up with an even cuter design!
Let's see...some of Autumn's Amazement......
Last Monday evening, my husband & I decided to take a walk. As we walked, it sprinkled just a tiny tiny bit.....we looked behind us & a beautiful rainbow graced the skies. I took a picture with my phone, so it isn't the best, but you get the idea.
Then, mid week, the farmer started harvesting our field. The next morning, I looked out & how beautiful......I will let you look at the picture to see the beauty I saw that morning.
Lastly, I have talked about my Ghost Chili pepper plants. They have ripened!!!!! I need to pick them & make a pot of chili for my son!! He will be so happy!!!
Ok, I think that is all for now. I HOPE I can figure out how to put captions under each picture. So many of you do, I want to figure out how!!!
have a wonderful, fall week!!!!
