Is it really the 25th again????

Fa la's the 25th again and time for
this month's "You & I" Ornament exchange.

Not quite sure where this month went....
feels like I settled in for a long winter's nap!
(well...maybe a summer's thanks to the heat)

Sept 11 ornaments
The Workbasket "Quaker Christmas Holly"
Stitched on 36ct.linen w/Victorian Motto

I found this freebie in my stash and
decided it needed to be stitched this month. 
My first one was stitched with one thread
over two and the coverage was a little suspect
so I stitched the next one two threads over two.  
Much better...

I decided to leave the middle blank and not
add the year....just didn't like the look of "11".
After looking at the design again to
give credit to the designer I also
realized I forgot to add the beads....

I like it though and I hope this month's
receipient will like it too.

This month has been crazy with
work and football games each weekend. 
Sure hope it slows down some so I can
get some more stitching done. 

Well....I'm off to the beach for work!   
Life can be so hard sometimes. 
Hope you have a great day....
happy stitching.

"Harvest Moon"....

I just couldn't resist stitching this little fall goodie
from Nan at Threadwork Primitives

Harvest Moon
Threadwork Primitives "Harvest Moon"
stitched on 32ct Sand linen w/Victorian Motto & WDW thread

I knew the finishing fabric I wanted to use so
I chose a piece of linen from my stash as well
as my thread colors to match.   Hopefully I
can finish this as a cute little pillow 
to add to my fall collection.  

This certainly puts me in the mood for some
cool, crisp autumn nights...unfortunately I will
most likely have a long wait here in
South Carolina.  

Fall usually lasts about a week (if we are lucky...)
for us and this usually occurs in late
October/early November!

I shall wait.

My other favorite love begins tonight..... football....

I definitely know that fall is in the air when
the ball goes in the air.  Although it will be
97 degrees on Saturday afternoon as the we
kickoff in Death Valley (Go Tigers!), I can at 
least dream of the cooler times to come.......

ahhhhh fall......

happy weekend!
