Something Old - something new.............
After finishing up my last stitching project, I wasn't sure what I wanted to work on, so I just let time take its flow. I was looking through Blogs this past weekend and came across a finish of Blackbird Designs, "Sunflower House", the photo above, and remembered I had this started, so I dug it out, and have decided I would finish it. Since I love sunflowers and collect items with sunflowers, this will be perfect. I think I had the same idea when I started this chart, but oh well, maybe this time I WILL finish it. I do love this chart.
This chart, "Autumn Sampler", is from Little House Needleworks, I love Diane's work and have almost all of her charts, and actually do have several of them stitched up and some kitted up to be stitched. Anyway, I have had these seasonal charts in my stash since she published them. Since I love Fall, this is the perfect chart to stitch. I comes with Belle Soie threads from Crescent Colours. I am going to stitch it on 16 count Aida in Ivory. I might even stitch the "Winter Sampler", who knows!
Sorry the photo's are so light, I just could not get a good photo with the light in my house today.
We are having a beautiful day here in the Ozarks, actually it is almost like a Fall day and I love it. I am so looking forward to the Fall season, and the making of pumpkin bread, pumpkin muffins, pumpkin bars, well almost everything pumpkin, and apples things also. We will be going to the apple orchard later this month at Marionville, MO to purchase apples, then we'll have apple butter, apple sauce, apple pie, apple cake, apple dumplings, and baked apples stuffed with brown sugar, raisins, nuts, cinnamon and nutmeg. Boy, I'm making myself hungry!
I do hope everyone is having a wonderful, relaxing day, no matter if you are stitching, reading, or knitting. Enjoy yourself and enjoy life.
I just talked to our grandson a little while ago, and they have returned to their home in Ocean Springs, MS. They had gone inland to Raeleen's mom (Raeleen is our ex-DIL and our grandchildren live with her). They had no damage just lots, and lots or rain. He said that he and Courtney will be returning to school tomorrow.
