Late Night

Well here I am again and it is 2:30 AM, I am a night owl in case no one has figured that out yet. LOL The weather has been nice the last few days and the nights are wonderful to sleep, down in the 50s and 60's. I could stand this weather all year but I know that it won't happen.LOL

I have been stitching away and have finished my Told In A Garden Angel as well as part 2 of the Confetti of Stitches.

Part 2 Confetti of Stitches / The Stitch Specialist's SAL
I am going to do another of the freebie Angels as they are so lovely. Not sure which one yet, but definitely one of them. I have the Fairy Grandmother kitted up but I don't like the fabric that I originally choose so I will be getting some other and them starting that one. I am also waiting for the next part of Confetti of stitches. I can't wait to see what will come next. I am really loving this one. I am doing it on 26 ct Edelweiss which is 100% cotton, what a nice fabric it is to work on. It is great got Hardanger.

I am going to go for tonight, so you have a great day and take care. Thanks for stopping by.

August and Cooler

        At last we are having nice weather. The days have been in the 80's and the nights in the 60's, great sleeping weather and hardly any humidity. DH has an easier time brerathing in this cooler weather. So he has been feeling better.
        I have been stitching more these days and playing on the computer less. LOL  It is amazing how much more you can accomplish when you are away from the computer. I finished Serendipity by Papillon and I am trying to decide if I am going to frame it or make it into a pillow.

I also finished a small design for my neighbor she is having such a hard time. It is by Ever So Little Designs. I chose this one as she has a Tabby cat that is a joy. I am not usually a cat person but Angel is a different story. She considers me Mom # 2. LOL I am sure my neighbor will be pleased.

I found a black frame that will look good with it -- now to get it framed. LOL

     As I am sure all of you are aware by now, Marilyn Leavitt-Imblum of Lavendar and Lace Desighns has passed away this last week. I am in the Yahoo Group called Marilyn's Gardena and everyone is stitching something in her honor. I had one of her freebie angels started and picked that up again and there is another one already kitted up. Here is a picture of my progress so far.

On a recent visit to my LNS this design by Imaginating caught my eye. I don't usually do a lot of geometrics but for some reason this one struck  my fancy. I am almost halfway finished with it. It is an easy piece to get lost in. As my mind can wander at times this is a good thing. LOL

I am also getting ready to start a Hardanger SAL for the Yahoo group Stitch Specialists. Here is my fabric and thread choices.

So as I said I have been keeping my hands busy. I hope all of you are having a wondeful day. Thanks for stopping by.
