Hope everyone in the US had a great holiday week end. The weather in southern MA was beautiful. Did a lot of yard work. Finally, the yard is cleaned up from the hurricane. Yeah! Went with friends to see The Help. I loved it. it was very well done. I would recommend it. Then we went for lobster. I love to end the season with a wonderful lobster roll. Yummy. On to the stitching, I finished The Breath of Autumn by Chessie and Me. I loved this stitch. It had many different stitches and a lot of over one. So pretty. I will post again after I get it framed.
I framed these over the week end with frames that were in my stash. Enquiring minds wanted to know what floss I used for the squirrel. It was Apples and Oaks by Silk 'N Colors.
I am crazy for Fancey Blackett! This one I took to the framer. Got a very wide old looking frame. I am pleased with the outcome.
Close up of the frame, which isn't as bright as the picture shows.
With the power being off for so many days, I lost tract of the TUSAL report. Better late than never. I just keep pushing them down.
Here is what the giveaway will be. Kind of. I will be adding fabric and floss for 2 of the projects. I just love the Schoolgirl's Work. Great reading and wonderful projects. With Needle and Thread also has some wonderful projects. The rules are the same as always. Be a follower, if not, join up. If you post the giveaway on your blog you will get another vote. Leave a comment on this post only. I will draw a name on September 12 th. Good luck to all. As always, thanks for the feed back. I love all the comments. Until next time...Happy Stitching! Deborah
