Well it is definitely autumnal out there and I love it. I really couldn't take the heatwave we had this last weekend but things are considerably cooler now which is just perfect for me. Instead of going out and basking in the rays, I shut myself in for the weekend. I was truly miserable and kept on snapping at everyone. I really don't like the heat.
Found this mushroom at a local park and thought it was totally cool as I don't think I have ever see a red mushroom before - only in fairy tale books etc.
So, it has been over two weeks since my last post - eeekkk!! Figured I had better get a post up before I let things get out of control. In my last post I said I would have Dandy Dreams finished within a week or two but actually it only took a few days. The chart is now on it's way to the USA to Lynda who will stitch it and then send it back as I have others waiting to borrow it as well. Here's my happy finish:
I also finished stitching the September ornie that me and Tina (no blog) are doing. I was a bit late as I started it on the last day of September! Oh well. I still need to finish it off but it was a lovely one to do. This is a freebie from the Sampler Girl and you can find it on her blog if you scroll through the archives.
I have also been beavering away on Sampler au Bouquet and just loving this design! Here is where I am up to right now.
I am using the Vintage Country mocha belfast linen and the called for DMCs and love the way it is turning out. The fabric looks even better in real life and I can't stop looking at the way it all mottles and blends. Lovely.
Okay, next up is part 5 of the Istitch mystery sampler. I am keeping up with this and doing the parts as they come out but I have been glad of the break so I can stitch on other things as well. Here's my part:
Sorry the picture is so small. It is at Carol's request that we keep them small for the time being.
Well, I got a lovely gift in the post today from Lynda at A Cosy Little Place for Stitching. She sent me two LHN All Dolled Up charts from my wishlist so I am super pleased with them and will be definitely stitching them along with the couple of others I have. Brilliant and a super surprise so THANK you Lynda. Love them.
Well. I think that is me all done. Unless that is you want to see pictures of my lentil meals I have been making? No I thought not so I will save them for my food forum lol. I have done a bit of crochet but it is for a charity blanket and I am not sure that the square is good enough to get used so I am waiting to find out on that one. It's that darn Jan Eaton book - I need a tutorial in how to follow her charts! Anyway, that's another story. Have a good week everyone. Hopefully it will be cool enough to get out my Autumn blankie and start working on her again soon.
