Well we are back from Amish country where it was green, cool, crisp, autumnal and generally very lovely, and arrived in California to 100+ degree heat and wildfires. Woohoo!
and even some of these...
O.K, the tiger was in the Philadelphia zoo, not roaming the countryside.
But one of the best parts of the trip (for me, not so much for the kids) was discovering a truly fantastic stitch shop and blowing my budget there--Stitch N'Stuff in Reading (http://www.stitchnstuffpa.com/). Tons of charts, fabric, floss of all kinds, gorgeous models on the walls. I said goodbye to my self-control and bought..
Of course I had to start some Halloween stuff. I finished a few smalls, including one which I made using some of the Carrie's floss received in the recent exchange,
and started some others.
Now I am overwhelmed with projects (like I wasn't beforehand). Of course, since I got back home, my stitching time is virtually nonexistent. I am going to try to plow through the majority of these projects-and revisit my neglected WIP's-before I spend again. If I forget, please reach through the computer and slap me!
I leave you with a picture of this handsome guy who is 10 years old today. Love you Gabriel!
Happy Stitching until next time.
