New Embroidery Projects

I recently purchased (online download) Charlotte Lyon's cute little stitch book ... can't wait to make this! And I am getting ready to buy Rebecca's latest stitch sampler - chain stitches! I really like that she's having them screenprinted on different colors of fabric. Really awesome! (photos by Rebecca Ringquist and Charlotte Lyons)

Halloween is Almost Here!

I remember that 12 years ago, on October 31st, I got a little Halloween 'treat' - Child #4 - Olivia! I love this time of year!

Halloween Inchies

I belong to the Fiber Inchies Yahoo Group and we recently had a Halloween Inchie Swap. I just received mine today! I love them all! Gigi came up with a great idea to put them on a length of spider web ribbon! I couldn't get a great photo of them all but you get the idea!  A great way to showcase these little works of art! We're having a Christmas Inchie Swap as well.

Autumn Joy

I think we had snow about this time last year... but this year we are still hanging on to the last remnants of summer! Nice warm, weather and the leaves are taking their time to change color.... love it!

A Long Break

Who knew that going back to school would take up so much time?? I'm only taking one class to get re-certified to teach but I feel like I'm taking a whole load! It's been a beautiful and warm autumn here in SW Montana and I've been enjoying the outdoors as well! I had my kitty here for a visit for about ten days while my parents went on vacation - she lives at their house most of the time and loves it there!

I also attended a really fun workshop at Quilts on Broadway which taught us about Promise Stitching. It's quilt-making but all done by hand! I had a great time. Here are a few photos of examples we were shown ~

Do you love miniatures? I do. I found this adorable little bed at the antique store. I'm going to make a little quilt for it. Right now I just have a few little things stacked by it!

I promise to post again soon!
