October is Here !!

It is hard to believe that October is a reality and almost half over. I just don't know where the time goes. I used to hear people say that time went faster the older you got and used to laugh. but, I am not laughing now. I just don't believe how fast it flies away. Oh well !!

I am still stitching. Not as much as I would like but stitchinng noe the less. Work and dreaded housework seem to get in the way. i just finished a bookmark for the JA Hardanger Bookmark Tutorial. I changed the design as I did mine on canvas instead of fabric. The design called for xs and eyelets on the sides but they got lost on the canvas. So I used cables instead and am quite pleased with the finish. the other bookmark is a design of my own. I did a weaved rose in the center for something different. I like the way it looks.
Here also is my progress on two of the Garden Fairies by Nora Corbett / Mirabilia. MOrning Glory Fairy is ready for me to add the metallics and the beads, while I was waiting for some of my beads to come in I just had to start Sweet Pea Fairy and love the colors in her skirt/dress. So I guess I will have two of them to add beads and metallics to. .

thank you for visiting my blog , I will try to post more often. take care andd enjoy the clean crisp air of Fall before Father Winter adds icicles to your nose. hee hee

Thanks Yoyo !!!! My jar looks quite sad at the moment. I just threw away a cup full of orts right before I joined the SAL. Oh well, if I am productive, I may fill up another one soon. LOL

Your fairies look beautiful Dusty. Looking at your hardanger makes me want to look through my stash for a hardanger chart - I haven't done any for so long!
