Not bad - just hectic!!

Things are very hectic around here at the moment (not bad - just hectic).

In the coming weeks I don't think I will have a spare moment to pick up my stitching. However, I do want to share a few pieces which were recently finished and/or finished-finished. If I don't show them now I probably never will.

Here they are:
 'Knock Knock'
designed by Marie Driskill of Blackberry Lane Designs
stitch 2/2 on 32 count 'Prank' Belfast Linen with Anchor Black
started 08/28/2013 - completed 09/03/2013

 PS 'Pumpkin Patch' Black Cat
stitched 2/2 on scrap of 32 count overdyed linen
with DMC 310, 906 and 970
started 08/27/2013 - 08/28/2013

I made Black Cat into a Halloween ornament. It is a gift for my niece-in-law Natalie.

 'Snowman & Friends'
Dimensions Kit 
started 07/16/2013 (while on road trip) - completed 08/10/2013

I hope you don't mind twisting around to see the final picture. I've spent the past 10 minutes trying to straighten it out. In my pictures file it is right side up but I just can't get it that way on my post. I just don't have the time or patience to keep on trying.
'Maple Leaf Montage' designed by Lynne Nicoletti
stitched 1/2 on 28 count dusty green Jobelan
with the suggested DMC floss
started 11/13/2012 - completed 06/28/2013

This was such a great piece to stitch. I loved every minute - even all that white. It warms a Canadian's heart.

Have a wonderful autumn and I'll be back ones things get back to normal.

Great finishes all! I love the snowman. :-)

Looks like you like Halloween as much as I do. I've just started putting out my fall decorations. Pretty soon every flat surface will be covered.

Ohhh, so many finishes. And they are all so beautiful. Both Halloween pieces look great, particularly the crow on the pumpkin all in black on that dark orange fabric. A great design. The snowman will be perfect for the next winter and the Canadian design is just stunning. Great job.

Next month we'll leave for the US to visit our daughter and her family. I'm so looking forward to seeing our little grandson again. He's 18 months old now, runs around and just starts to speak. It will be an interesting time.
I hope that you will soon have the chance to see your little granddaughter again, too. Our grandchildren are the special treasures in our lives, aren't they.
