Just too cute.

Did some quick stitching this weekend 
and thought I'd post some pics. 
I'm trying hard to stay actively 
blogging : )
As you know, I have the house all decorated
for Fall/Halloween already and  
I am in a Halloween kind of stitching
mood.  My Kindred Spirits 
piece is coming along, but I 
stopped for a bit to make 
this little crow box. 
It's a little design I created last 
year around this time.

 I think it is just too cute and 
will fit right in with all my 
Halloween handmades that
I love and cherish so.
Hope it was a happy weekend
for all !

A Stitcher's Finish

Happy Saturday!
It's just a beautiful day here in
Philly and I have been spending it
with my needle and thread.
My TDIPT sister, Patti
of Winding Vine Wanderings
sent me a picture of her recent
finishes using my Harvest Moon pattern.

She stitched these up for
Notforgotten Farm's 4th Annual 
Gathering of Primitive Friends, which is 
happening today.

I always love the spin Patti puts on things and
how she adds her own touch to a design.   

Aren't they great!
I love them.  Thanks for sharing Patti.

Hope your day is filled with fun
and many stitches :)

It's Been Too Long

My dear friends, I'm sorry it's been so long
since I posted to my blog.
Where did the month of August go?
To say I have been busy is a real
But hopefully I can soon show you
all that I've been stitching.

I've been decorating for Fall/Halloween.
It's my favorite time of the year and
I try and get the house done
as soon as Sept. hits.
I've just acquired a few really cool
pieces from some wonderful artists 
that I just have to show you.

First, I had a birthday in Aug and
my hubby bought me a hand painted
Halloween game board
that I was dying to have.
He got it from and Etsy shop
The Owl in the picture is also new
and was made by Marlene of

Next is another Owl and Pumpkin
head Make Do from
I now have a thing for owls as well as pumpkins.

And last but certainly not least 
is a hooked rug that I really 
wanted the second I saw it.
I don't hook so when the artist 
offered a make one special
order of her "1820 Sunflower" rug
I jumped at it and emailed her
as fast as my fingers would type : )
It hangs in my beloved sewing studio
and makes me smile.
I promise not to stay away so long.

I hope that all of you are enjoying
the weekend and doing something you
Happy Stitching!
