I have a really, dear Buddy that L-O-V-E-S Halloween. Well after some sneaky sleuthing to make sure that she hadn't purchased the pattern yet....I stitched her this stitchy witchy:
Fabric: 30 ct. Straw Weeks Dye Works
Fibers: Crescent Colours, Weeks and DMC as charted
Finished as: Stitcher's Keep
Stitched for: Terry P.
Started: July 6, 2009
Finished: July 24, 2009
that Terry is over the moon with my choice for her, and the Good Lord knows she's been waiting for a looooooong time for this, see I "owed" her one.....and finally I saw it through. Hopefully it was worth the wait in Terry's eyes? Let's hope so!
Well I started a new project and it is not going as I anticipated. But hopefully it will turn out o.k. We'll see....and I'm too embarrassed right now of the MUCK of made of it to even show you. So I'll wait and see - hopefully I won't just pick it up and throw it away :o/
We went to our county fair. I love fairs, the animals, the 4-H'ers, the food, the lights, even the smells...but my very favorite part is looking at all the Home Ec exhibits and especially the needlearts entries. You know here I'm going to once *again* show my ignorance....but I thought you had to belong to a Ladies Home Ec. Club to enter things in the fair....apparently I was wrong, so you know what? I got a list of all the entry categories and I'm going to enter something(S) next year....I was looking at what was entered and what won the Grand Champion ribbons and I think that, I could win some ribbons myself. Maybe. Next year. We'll see.
That does it for me for today....back to the laundry and finishing work. Until next time: Love and best wishes, as you count your blessings and your stitches, from our house to yours! XXxxxx
In the end,
those things that affect your life most deeply
are too simple to talk about.
