Several things have occurred in the last few weeks to give me a lot of extra stitching time plus I have had a few projects that were close to being finished. I have 3 projects finished! !! Yeah for me.
The first thing I have finished is my November Cottage. Once I finished that I was on a roll and pulled out Autumn Band Sampler by Little House Needleworks. I changed the colors of the words and sunflowers to GAST Harvest Moon and the center of the sunflowers I changed to DMC 3031.
I am trying to keep my stash to a minimum so I am going to start going through it and selling and giving away ones that I have finished.So if you are interested in the pattern for Autumn Band Sampler or Truly Thankful. I also have a little Prairie Schooler Freebie to give away. (I am saving the November Cottage pattern to sell the whole set.)Please leave a comment letting me know which one you would like or all of them and I will draw the winners here in a week or so. Please feel free to comment even if you haven't already done so. ;-)

I have made some progress on autumn band sampler and then instead of just finishing that I had to start a new project! ;-)
I have recently discovered the designer Heartstring Samplery and have fallen in love with several of her pieces. So my newest start is one of her thanksgiving pieces. I am loving it even though there have been frogs abounding!
Autumn has arrived in northern Delaware and I am thrilled! ;-) The leaves are starting to change and it is beautiful.
I have joined instagram and have found a few of you. If you want you can find me as sweetpickle02. ;-)
Well I have rambled enough. I hope you are having a blessed day!

We are learning our way around a bit. I have been to The Strawberry Sampler up in Pennsylvania and I have some new stash to prove it! ;-) I tried to meet up with Catherine from Bramblewood Stitches, but it didn't work out. We are hoping it will work out soon.
I have a major case of startitis lately. I have started several new knitting projects and cross stitch projects too. I am thinking of starting Pumpkin Patch Inn too.;-) I am working on October cottage by CCN and Autumn Band Sampler by LHN.
It is starting to look like Autumn around here. It was 48 degrees when I woke up yesterday. It is so lovely after living in the desert for so long.
My daughter and I had a girls day yesterday and ventured up into Pennsylvania to a lovely tea room. It was so delightful!
Well the boys have gone down to the bay to go fishing so I am going to make a cup of tea and stitch for a while. :-) I will try to be better about posting! ;-)

Hi! I know it has been a LONG time since I have posted. So much has happened since then. The major thing has been a new job for my husband. We have gone from living in south eastern Arizona to Northern Delaware. Well, technically we are in an rv park in northern Maryland right now looking for a place to live. ; 0)
We have been here 4 days now. So far we love it. ; 0) It is VERY humid and hot. The hot part we are used to but not the humidity.
Anyway, on to the stitching part. I kitted up a few things to work on before I packed all of my stitching treasures up.I decided that I needed to have some stitching therapy today (living in a 27ft travel trailer with an active 8 year old boy will make you need therapy! )! ; 0)
So, I pulled out my Victoria Sampler Christmas Robin ornament. There are a lot of Robins around our trailer. We are really enjoying watching them. Well I had better finish since I am posting from my phone. I hope that you all are having a lovely day.

Welcome to my new followers! I am very glad that you are here! I have three finishes to show you today.
The first one is Joy from LHN. I did the stitching a couple of years ago and it was waiting it's turn to be made into something and I finally made a little hanging pillow.
I also finished LHN's Poinsettia House and stretched it and popped it into a frame that I use for my April Showers piece. I haven't decided if I will eventually have it permanently framed or not. I hung them up together in my family room. I think they turned out really cute. ;o)
My third piece is one that I finished the stitching on last year and finally got around to stretching it and putting it into a frame I had ordered online for it. It is currently on my mantel in my family room.
I have been stitching on several different pieces and will show you those next time. I have also been knitting and stamping so I will have a post about those too.
Today is the 200th anniversary of the publishing of Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen. So, I am going to go and watch the 1995 version of it and stitch and knit away. ;o)
