Hello!  I hope you all were able to enjoy lovely weather like we had here in NC this weekend.  Yesterday had me wishing for autumn.  It was overcast and cool with a glorious breeze blowing.  I can feel that Autumn and Halloween stitching calling to me.  :o)

I have a finish to show you.

36 ct linen/DMC floss

I couldn't get a great picture of the full piece as it is so long and skinny.  The shuttle frame is by Kay's Frames and I just love it.  Even though it has the feel of a winter piece I plan to display it year round.  "Believe" can be applied to our daily life in so many ways - Believe in yourself, Believe in the Lord, Believe it can happen....and the list goes on.  I haven't yet decided where I will hang it.  For now it is resting on a table with a few other things I have on display right now.

I am off to give Lola a bath and then maybe dig through my stash to find my next small to stitch.
Wishing you all a wonderful week ahead!

Finally, A Finish

Howdy friends and neighbors.  It has been a while since I posted - so much going on with work and life.  The Olympics came and went - weren't they great?!  My son says almost every day "I wish the Olympics were still on."  I didn't choose a special project for the Olympics, instead I stitched on and finally finished this:

By The Bay Needleart Mystery
28 ct Antique White Linen/DMC floss

I found the frame at Hobby Lobby that matches the greens in piece perfectly.  Thanks to Donna for conducting such a wonderful Mystery SAL.

I am now working on one of the Hinzeit designs for the shuttle I bought and should have a finish on it in the next week or so.  My stitching plans have been seriously interrupted by my work schedule.  I have hopes this crazy work schedule will resolve in about another month and I can get back to my stitching and blogging.  I managed to visit about a third of the blogs in my reader today and will try to get around to seeing all of you in the next day or two.  I have been seeing some of you starting on those lovely fall designs and they have me wishing for the beautiful autumn colors and the cooler temperature.

Wishing you a wonderful week ahead!  Thank you so much for stopping by.
