IHSW September

It is hard to believe it is almost October. Where did the time go?

Well, this weekend I worked on When Witches Go Riding by Prairie Schooler. I love stitching Halloween and autumn pieces. Please excuse the thread running behind the fabric :)

Thanks for stopping by!

Evening Primrose Finish

I finished Evening Primrose by Nora Corbett this weekend. She is stitched on 32 Crystal Meditation Lugana. While I loved the fabric, I did not like stitching on it. Either way, she turned out quite cute. I really love all the purple beads on her :)

It has been a while since I last updated, but it has been a busy summer for us. We were looking for a house, made an offer, and then had it inspected. It was well worth the money for the house inspection. There was too much wrong with the house, so we walked away, and are back to looking at houses.

We also adopted a second dog from Helping Shepherds of Every Color Rescue. Her name is Ellie, and she is a 1-2 year old German Shepherd. She is very sweet. Unfortunately, Mandy, our first dog, is not interested in sharing our apartment. Mandy growls every time she see Ellie inside. However, they get along fine at day care and the dog park, so there is hope! We also DNA tested Mandy, and she came back half Belgian Malinois with a little lab and Cocker Spaniel thrown in (I don't see the spaniel in her at all). It was a fun little test to do, and I think the Belgian Malinois explains a lot about her personality-her high energy for example.

Since my last blog update, I finished Little Miss Sunflower by Little House Needleworks. She turned out cute :)

I have been working on Evening Primrose by Nora Corbett. Her skirt is much easier to see this time. I have her wings, some backstitching, and beading left. I hope to finish her by next week.

I will probably start When Witches Go Riding by Prairie Schooler soon-I love Halloween patterns :)
