Shari's Week 5

Rose's Week 5

Robins taking a bath!
LK ABC Lessons


New Display

old standby fireplace display with a new twist added!
It was a very rainy, dreary, morning here today, so I lit some candle early this morning. They looked so pretty, that I decided to take a couple pictures of my fall decor. I do the fireplace area about the same each year, so some of you have probably already seen most of what is there......I did add something new this year... I also took a picture of my little table display. I LOVE this little display....it was so pretty in the dark room. Also, the robins were taking baths in the water in the driveway, so I took a picture of their antics....so cute to watch..
Everyone is moving along on the SAL...I still love each stitch that I am putting into it. The cloud did take a little more time than I would have liked, but I also didn't have a whole lot of stitching time this week. The days I picked to stitch were busy, but I stitched as I could.
I chose Sat. & Sun. this week. On Sat., I had a spur of the moment stitch in at my house. I had 4 ladies show up. We had a great time catching up & stitching.....more catching up than stitching I am afraid!!! The other day I picked for this week was yesterday. I sat down to stitch in the afternoon & proceeded to doze off....being off my thyroid meds are really taking their toll on me. So....I took a nap!!! I did stitch most of the evening....
I worked on my LK ABC Lessons on the other days.... I am still loving every XXX of this one also.
Have a great week.....thanks for stopping by & sharing your sweet comments with me....

All of the SAL pieces are really coming along! As is your LK! Your decorations are very pretty. Our only fireplace is in the basement, I wish we had one on the main level!

All the SAL stitching is coming along great. Love the pictures of your fall display and robins enjoying their bath.

You all are really moving right along on North Wind, Shari--they look great :)

This fall has been so dark and dreary so far--kind of depressing really! Maybe I'll have to try lighting some candles and getting more of my fall decorations out :)

Hope your week is going well...

Lovely Fall displays! It is really cool of you to show everyone's progress on your SAL - all are looking very nice.

I have a couple of the L*K ABC's in my to do stack - maybe someday.

Hi Shari~What beautiful decorations for the fall. I love all the colors that every autumn has to offer to those who don't forget to feel the colors!
I noticed that you're stitching the LK's ABC of Life. I've stitched two of them. Both as gifts, but what I found interesting was that I saved seven hours on the second one just by doing it on Aida instead of linen. Amaziing huh? Yours look lovely as does all your stitching. I love your blog also. It's a happy place to visit.
