Some Stitching!

Jamaica Deb is finished... except for some buttons around the sun. Not sure I will get them, or, make some more french knots! I loved the colors in this Sunflower Seed chart. Stitching on the Midas Cashel Linen was an added bonus!

Forever Yours.... by Cedar Hill. I am only lacking the words. I thought I had every GAST. Guess what one I am missing.... Verigated khaki. The hearts were fun to stitch. I think **one** of my most favorite color combos is khaki and red (DMC 221). I'm anxious to finish this and then try my hand at finishing this in a pinkeep style that I can hang on the wall (if that makes a whole lot of sense!). Will let you know how that little experiment goes!

I started Lynne Nicoletti's Neptune Poseidon last night. I'm stitching "Nepi" on Silkweavers 28ct Lugana "Splash". Love the name. This one will take me a while.

My next start will be From The East. Thanks Teejay for your kind words! I'm going to stitch this as one piece. I'm off to Golden Needle on Saturday to teach my tassel class, so I will get the fabric I need for this, along with the GAST for Forever and.... I'm sure more stuff too!

I tried to get a photo of my peyote bracelet I'm working on at the EGA stitch-in, but I can't get a decent photo. I will keep trying. I think I only have 3 inches done, so this one will take a while. Oh.... speaking of EGA... our second October meeting is "Dress as a Stitch".... We are to each dress as a stitch... It's been fun trying to come up with different ideas. Dress in black and white, be a nun stitch... Wear black leather & carry a whip & be a whip stitch... Ruby said she was going to dress as an away knot and just not come...

I'm off to Sarasota FL for a conference (work related) Thursday & Friday. I'm looking forward to being out of the office and getting to network with others in my position. I have a presentation to make Thursday afternoon. Once I get past that it will great!

Fall is in the air. The pool temp was down to 85 degrees F. yesterday afternoon. I'm looking forward to the end of hurricane season. Stay safe! See you next week!

Hi, Miokka. The snow woman design is adorable. Having lived many years in So. Florida, I can relate to her. Your stitching is lovely.
