I am Back!

It's been really busy around here for the last month or so. Some stitching has got done but not as much as I would like. I did 6 Halloween ornaments which I will show you after the have been finished. I am sending them to my blogging buddy Vonna to finish. She will do them do them a lot more justice than I would. I did pick up 2 pieces from my framer. Please excuse the photo of the first piece. The glare from the glass was terrible. You can click on any of the pictures for a larger view.
I had this piece matted because I wanted it to appear bigger than it is and I really love the frame.
I love Ghoul and the frame is one I have used many times. Where have I been? Here is a clue.
I took a really large boat and went to Bermuda. During a hurricane. The storm was of no issue to the boat or to Bermuda. We got there one day after the storm and you would never know that a storm blew by.
I love the pastel homes and businesses. The people are friendly and the shopping was wonderful. Look what I found!
A soft white flower frog. It was labeled to look like coral. I don't know about that but I sure love it. I will end with a picture of Stella. She is such a Diva -- she doesn't like to sit on anything that isn't soft. The picture is her sitting on Jo's feet under the kitchen table.
Thanks for taking the time to read and comment on my blog. Your comments mean so much to me. Until next time .... Happy Stitching! Deborah

A Little More Fall Stitching.

I hope all of you in the US had a wonderful Labor Day Weekend. Mine was just how I wanted it to be. Quiet! The weather was perfect. Did some errands, lots of stitching, walked with Stella, did some yard work and had turkey burgers. Just about a perfect holiday. I finished Ghoul by PSS. Love it.
Hope to find a frame in my stash for it. Next up is Turkey Love by PSS.
Have I mentioned how much I enjoy stitching Paulette's designs? I used 32 ct v. examplar LSL and the suggested NPI and Belle Soie silk. The silks are beautiful. This one will go to the framer. I think that I want to mat this one. Cheryl and I have been thrifting a few times during the summer months.
The clear frog came with the bottom as a set. The glass is etched in a floral design. Very nice. The little brown frog is very different.
This green dish is so beautiful. The picture does it no justice. There is a beautiful design in the glass.
I couldn't pass up this sugar and creamer. The color and design is so pretty. I have a number of sugar and creamers. Just love them.
I loved this dresser scarf. It isn't orange , as the picture suggests. It's just the lamp light.
See, it is a cream color. I got one for both dressers. They were a bargain, $12.00 for both. You can click on any of the pictures for a larger view. I will end with a picture of my girl, Stella. She is getting so big.
I threw some clothes just out of the dryer on the bed and she just had to get on the warm towels. Thanks for visiting and leaving great comments. I appreciate them all. Until next time ..... Happy Stitching! Deborah
