Hello! eveyone, I hope this finds everyone well and excited about the holidays coming up. I have been so busy with working part-time, a couple night courses, babysitting Brianna, raking the leaves, cleaning the house to decorate and entertain, hubby's taxes and the garage needs to be cleaned before snow starts coming down, arrgghh. I need more hours, lol. I only have the last two inside circles to be filled in on CDC, then thats done. I am getting sad and have slowed down, I have enjoyed stitching this so much. I might just stitch it again in another color. It is so hard for me to put down.
oh well! here's my progress on AAFG, thats also another hard to put down, the motifs stitch up so fast.

I took a trail off the beaten path the other nite and started this freebie. I should be done with it tomorrow nite, if I can sit with it for awhile tonite.

I seen it on this new to me blog Pull Up A Needle And Stitch and just loved the mat she used to frame it with. I had seen this design stitched up and always looked for it and here it was... a freebie.

Well, better get going, my floors should be dry now. I soaked em' good, lol.

Happy Stitching!!

Until next time...

Wow, send me a photo of your CdC and I will post it on the Paradigm/Cirque blog for all to see. It will keep us inspired. Your AFTG is looking great too and I love that funky heart. We have finally landed in Arizona and I am ready for a rest and some serious stitching.
