September is almost over! It seemed to just fly by. Still job hunting but at least there have been a few promising leads. I hope to be working by the end of October. Keeping my fingers crossed for that!

I did go to my LNS on Sunday, September 19th. It was the monthly Sampler Sunday and it was a pleasant afternoon of information and stitching. I brought a few of my finished pieces to show.

So this is something that I started quite a while ago, put away, got out again, put away, got out again, etc. until I finally completed it this month. I was determined to have it done for this years Halloween season.

I also finished June Morning by The Goode Huswife. I just loved it when I saw the chart in 2002 and I still love it, especially now that it is completed. I used the linen and DMC that it was charted for and I think it came out great! See for yourself!

Finally, I finished  Hallow Sampler by The Primitive Needle. I did not get it ironed but at least it is complete. It will not be framed for Halloween due to lack of funds. Hopefully, next year!

I tried to be a tad artistic with the layout. Not sure it works. I worked this on 40 count Dill linen with the combination of Sampler Threads and Weeks Dye Works it was charted for. A quick and easy piece!

On to more computer work but first a cup of Pumpkin Spice flavored coffee! I have to say, I love the fall!

I have already missed a few days and I have only been at this for one week!

Going into the “vault” for finished pieces


Another “old” piece. This is EduCATed by Bent Creek. Being a librarian and cat lover I HAD to do this piece. It is really quite cute.

I made a list of all my charts the other day and I have quite a few. I am happy to say that many have been completed but no where near half of them (and I counted over 150!). I know there are other stitchers that surpass that number but this is enough for me. I feel overwhelmed as it is with what I have.


 This is something I put together for my mother. I just decoupaged paper on a papier mache letter. Then I added some embellishments. I got the idea from a craft book I was looking at. It was a lot of fun to make and I want to do more. I get creative block a lot these days though so it might be a while before I get to another one.

That is it for now!

IMG_0241Another completed piece. I had to do this since it is titled Marion the Librarian. The designer of this one is La-D-Da. This was also done on 40 ct. linen and I used the threads that the design was charted for.

I will be adding more in the next few days as I continue to learn what I am doing as a blogger!
