Saturday Again !!!

It is hard to believe that another week has gone by again.  All the days just seem to fly.  It is a beautiful day again today.  It is so nice to have the A/C off and the windows open for the fresh air.  No stitching today so far, maybe later on this evening.  I hope everyone is enjoying the beauties of nature.  take care and smile !!!

I'm Back !!!

It is hard to believe that it is the end of August.  I don't know where this month has gone. The weather here has been cool enough to give the A/C a needed rest, thankfully !  DH has had an easier time breathing and moving around without all the heat and humidity.  I have been stitching like mad so that is a good thing.  I am making a little headway with my WIP's at last.
The Mandala is coming along nicely and I have the last parts now so I can finish that one up. Here is the picture for that one.

Here is the Debbie Draper Mystery from the German Group -- finished at last.

I managed to finish stitching May and June for the Brides Tree SAL, I just need to finish them into ornies and then start working on July and August to get caught up.

I am working on a Humbug for an exchange on the EMS Board. This is one of her designs and just needs to be made into a Humbug and then I can mail it out.

I have been working on a Loopy Lou design for quite a while and finally have all the stitching done on that one.  All I need now is to do the beads and then it will be ready to frame.  It will be a gift for a friend of mine.

Lastly, I received a wonderful surprise from my Aunt.  She was going through some of her things and found a small stocking that my Mother made for me before she died. Actually she made one for me and one for my sister.  This is mine.  Mama did beautiful crewel work.  Something I am not fond of doing.  I have quite a few pieces that are from her hands. It is small but I love it as it is part of her.  She has been gone from me for eight years and I miss her everyday.

Thanks for reading my ramblings and have a nice day !!!
