Is It Autumn Yet?

I am so tired of the hot and humid weather. Summer is not my season. I have decided that I need to stitch Fall designs. I had Autumn Alphabet stretched and put in an in and out frame. Love the colors. After Autumn Band sampler was stretched, it also went into an in and out frame. Halloweenies is my favorite of all of these pieces. I just love Paulette's designs. I think that the frame is perfect for the design. Next up is Autumn on Marigold Lane.
I think that this will probably be framed. It was a fun stitch that worked up quickly. I want to thank everyone for the birthday wishes. This was a big BD ..... 60! I wondered if I would feel different with this BD and I am glad to say that I don't. Yeah!! lol. I went to New Hampshire and Vermont with friends for a few days. I was treated like a queen. Stayed in a beautiful B&B, ate some wonderful food, shopped and saw some gorgeous scenery. I was a wonderful way to spend my birthday.
Again, I want to thank all of you for the great comments on my last post. I appreciate them all. Until the next time ...... Happy Stitching! Deborah

Beautiful stitching , love all your Autumn ones.
We have not had much of a Summer yet so I really don't want to move on into another season, but I now we have to.
Happy belated wishes for your Birthday, now the years go even faster , I am already 65 and I was only 60 a few weeks ago ha.
Never mind it's not about age it's how you feel.hugs.

Happy Belated Birthday!

I'm so over summer too. Like you, it's not my season. My husband says I don't belong in Florida. I think he's right.

You've been busy! Love your finishes.

Your finishes and frame choices are all so pretty! And, happy belated birthday - I missed your last post but gosh, you found some great stuff and that cake looked awesome!

Right now, we are having beautiful weather in Michigan, the breeze is cool and the windows are open. So, I'm not quite ready to wish summer away.

Chrissie said...

Deborah, I am soooo agreeing with you. I live in the Panhandle of Texas and it is just hothot-evil-hot! I've started a table runner that combines felting, sewing and embroidery. Just the fall-y colors make me feel cooler, as do the lovely pictures you posted. The green tree and the cool river...aaahhh! Thank you!

Julie said...

You've been working on some superb projects Deborah.

robindefender said...

Oooh! I love all your stitching, especially Halloweenies and the Marigold piece. So deliciously fallish (yeah, I just made that up, sorry).

Susan said...

I fully agree with you about this summer. I am really hoping for an early fall. Beautiful finishes. And the photos remind me so much of home (I lived in central NH for 20+ years before moving to VA)

Janice Boucher said...

Happy Belated Birthday Deborah! LOVE your finishes -- Halloweenies is my favorite:)

I'm so ready for Fall too. Summer is my least favorite season.

Nice pics from your birthday getaway.

Have a great week.

Melanie said...

I'm with you - so so SO tired of the humid weather. Bleh. :(
Beautiful beautiful stitchies you've got going on here though!!

Joy said...

I am with you...I am soo over this summer. The heat, storms, and now worry about mosquitos...Ughh! I just adore your Fall finishes and I sat down the other day and did nothing put pull Fall patterns. Thank for the boost in the buns!

Mindi said...

Love all of your fall finishes! I'm another person that is ready for some cooler weather, but unfortunately in Southern California I won't get very much of an autumn.

Mouse said...

Carol said...

Your birthday trip to NH and VT sounds ideal, Deborah!! I'm sure it made turning 60 a bit easier...I'm only 3 years behind you!!

Love all of your stitching--the Halloweenies are just adorable :)

Chris said...

What lovely fall finishes. All I can think about is fall right now. I want the colors and the cool temps.

Annie said...

Gorgeous stitching on some really nice patterns!

I don't want to see summer end. I love the freedom of going outside with no hat, coat, gloves, scarf and not worrying about ice and snow! But I guess I have no choice but to adjust!

The Inspired Stitcher said...

I'm with you, this cooler weather really has me in the fall stitching mood too! Love your finishes. So pretty!

carol fun said...

I love all your Fall pieces! I'm working on that Lizzie Kate sampler right now. It is perfect for the "Fall" state of mind I find myself in. All my current projects are in an autumn palette-cross stitch, quilting, knitting. Congratulations on your birthday! Sixty is the new forty - at least that's what I'm telling myself since my sixtieth is next year.

Anne said...

Gorgeous finishes! The frames are perfect and it looks like you are ready for fall!!

Sally said...

Happy Belated Birthday! Love all of your Autumnal finishes but my favourite has to be Halloweenies! I just love that one!

Scattered Threads said...

I am new to your blog and your beautiful stitched pieces.

Bekca said...

It looks like you had a wonderful time celebrating your birthday, you deserve it!
I haven't seen the Halloweenies design before, it's so sweet.
Best wishes.

Suzanne said...

All such pretty finishes! We have just moved into spring and it hasn't disappointed yet. I just hope that it's not a sign that we are going to have a very hot summer.
