Hello! and Happy Weekend to everyone.
I am so overwhelmed with the You Make Me Smile Award given by
Stitchyangel's Treasures you have truly made my weekend, Thanks so much.
I am sure it probably had to do with my recently finished Witchy Washy, hanging out my colorful laundry, lol.
The rules are to send to 10 people, but rules are made to be broke. So, I am breaking. Everyone's post and comments and e-mails make me smile. Consider everyone that reads my story to be given that Smile Award.
It is just too hard to pick ten.
I am sure everyone has been picked a few times by now anyway.
On the stitchy front...
I finished Salem Sister's by Plum Street Samplers on Wednesday and framed it yesterday.
This was a SAL with Sharon & Lizzy.

I have stitched a little on Poppies
I had started Windy Hill by Brightneedle some time ago. I think I am going to start it again on a darker fabby. It looks like the greens are too light on this color. I just am not motivated by it.
I am almost done with Halloween Queen, just the border.
When thats done, I am going to focus on CDC, my deadline of Thanksgiving is coming fast.
I didnt start And A Forset Grew just because my needle hand has been achy.
But I sure have been studying it, lol.
Possibly achy from all these years of stitching?
Well, I promised myself this was going to be short and sweet.
Happy Stitching!!! until next time...

GREAT stitching!!! And probably re-starting the BN design on a darker fabric will work out better (though I am partial to those very subtle shadings, I must admit).

Have a great day!! :D
