A Few Good Things

The mail was good to me this week. I love the PS October chart. The rest are the new ornament, Sarah Street and Tall pines from LHN and Happy Birthday and Rose garden from BBD. The fabric is vintage maple sugar from LSL.
Over the weekend I started Midnight Watch by BBD. Using the called for fibers and the linen is 32ct LSL Maple Sugar. It's alot of stitching but Iam enjoying it. Forgive me for not ironing it.

I picked up Olga from the framers. I just love this piece. The frame is black with alittle gold beading on the edge.


It's been a busy here. I steamed cleaned 4 rooms of hardwood floors and then put on a lovely coat of floor shine. It was alot of hard work but the floors look wonderful. When I finished, I made this really good blueberry crumble. OK, I needed to reward myself.

I love your Midnight Watch piece. I'd like to do that someday. Would probably be a good one to start now so that it was finished by Halloween. Love that Blueberry Crumble too - blueberries are my favorite and your picture looks mouthwatering!

Olga looks so great! Do you put glass over your pieces? I'm taking a poll for my own curiosity. And I am in awe of your "start." You nigh near finished half of it!

Olga looks so great framed! And the BBD piece is such perfect spooky stitching.

I'm reminded of the blueberry dessert pizza I sometimes make. This is the right season so I should do that this weekend. Your crumble is making my mouth water!
