This week has just flown by! Hard to believe that it has been a week since Hurricane Irene paid us a visit. The weather has been beautiful all week, starting to feel like fall, warm sunny days and cool nights!
I have gotten a lot of stitching done this week! "Pumpkin Farm" was finished on Wednesday. I just couldn't put this one down until I finished!
"Pumpkin Farm" by With Thy Needle and Thread
stitched on 28 ct. evenweave with DMC threads
"My Ways" was completed on Thursday. My goal was to finish it by the end of August, but I am pleased to finish it only one day later. It is an easy little sampler to stitch but I did get bored with the alphabet stitched all in one color so I had to stitch on other projects in between working on this one which is why it took longer than I expected.
"My Ways" by La D Da
stitched on 32 ct. linen with DMC threads
These finishes are #8 and #9 of my Crazy January Challenge pieces! I don't know if I will be able to complete all 15 starts this year but I am making progress toward my goal!
Project #10 is "Little House Neighborhood" by LHN. I picked it up last night and was able to complete the vine part of the border before bedtime. I gave a little cheer when it matched up!

My postman delivered some new stash this week! I had been trying so hard not to buy any new projects from the Baltimore show but the temptation was too great. So I limited my purchases to only 3 projects...
"Weeds Make Haste" by Shakespears Peddler, "Halloween Eve" by BBD, and the new Inspiration Boxer by Lizzie Kate.
Don't you just love the beautiful colors in "Halloween Eve" and "Weeds"?
In family news this week, my youngest son and his wife purchased their very first home. They are so excited! And the best part for us is they are only a hours drive from us now so more frequent visits with our granddaughter are in our future! Yea!!!
Well, that's all for this post. I wish everyone a fun and safe Labor Day weekend! Hope you get to have some fun and some stitchy time too!
Blessings and Happy Stitching!
