Please check Becka Beads Horsehair jewelry site

Good morning all: I made a new Bracelet yesterday at Becka Beads in Maple Lake Minnesota.
I love this bracelet, no needles just weaving.

Becky is a hoot to be with, she has many beautiful beads she has created both in metal and glass, she also makes horsehair bracelets, I have put a link on my sidebar to her shop and email, please check her out, she has a Lady from Scotland who send horsehair to her to make bracelets for her and her family.

Theses are beautiful, I need to find a person who has a horse that will let have some hair I want one of these for me.
Please check her site out.

This is my favorite snack, in the fall, HoneyCrisp apples from Apple Jack Orchards, in Rockford, Mn.

This is our little girl trying to get a moth that is outside the window, she is so much fun to watch, she is three now and still has a little kitten in her.

Mike is getting ready for a business trip and this is our baby trying to go with.

It is Sunday and I have a need to stitch,  happy fall to you all.

Fall is so Beautiful

Happy Fall to you all: Welcome to my new commenters and followers, it is beautiful today, it is a lovely 65 degrees, I have the office window open, it smells so fresh.
I had a long day yesterday, up at 03:30, left at 05:00 picked a Doctor from Blaine Mn. went to Sioux City Iowa for a one hour talk back to Minnesota, got home at 20:15 it was brutal however I did find a Starbucks and Panera Bread to get a latte and Sesame Seed Chicken Salad yummy.

This is one of the trees in my front yard, I love it, I took this picture on Sunday, it has now more orange and red leaves.

I decided to look in a bag I had put aside, I cannot believe how many projects I have going, I am just going to show you a few. I started this about two years ago, can you say I am slow I can. This is one I plan on finishing before the end of November.

Next is my Jeannette Douglas Biscornu Stackers, I wanted to do all three in different color fabric, I know I am a little different but I like different, I will finish the third one this weekend on white 32 count fabric.

I am working on two Scattered Seed  kits, one is the Pinpillow and Acorn Pinkeep  (Harvest Waiting)
I love Tammy Blacks patterns they are rather primitive looking, if you are interested in joining her series, she has three out Birds, Rabbits and Sheep pop on over and take a look. she has a beautiful blog, take a look at her huge sunflowers she grew this year.

This is the Happy Harvest Rejoice Pinkeep Nest I just need to stitch and stuff and do the trim, hopefully I will have this done by Sunday.

This ia the Hand Fan, it is from Mariah's Summer Tales series, I started this about a month ago, I do not have a path of stitching I go by, just whatever is my fancy for the day.

I am such a fan of Tammy's samplers, I look forward to doing more of her kits. She also sells on Etsy, I do not have her link you will have to go to her Blog site, she also sells other items you may find interesting.

I took my Mother to the Apple Jack Orchards this week, we bought several things including Harrelson apples, yummy tart but sweet, some apple fritter bread, poppy seed dressing.

Here are a few pictures to share.

This is an apron I found at the orchard, it is adorable, I plan on making a few of these they are made out of a mans shirt, oh so cute.

Up next is the Eagle's nest we found on the way home, if you click on the picture you really get an idea of how big they are.

It is now time to stitch.
to all.

Some stitching and some very important information.

Hello to all you Bloggers out in Blogland, I hope the changing of the seasons is treating you all well, I seem to have a little hayfever ick, Mike is worse off then me, I think as we grow older we notice the things that used to bother us little are now  more noticeable.

I have stitched a little on my Scattered Seed  Harvest Waiting, I love this design, I am in awe of blackbirds so this is up my ally, I hope to have it finished this week-end and put together.
Sorry about the dark picture and the wrinkles, it is late and I am tired long days at work.

This is a Shepherds Bush Kit I am sending to a very special friend, I hope she likes it.
I think I need to get a couple more they are so cute and so pink.
Not a good picture sorry.

I am excited about this pattern it is so pretty, and I am going to dye my own fabric for the leaves, this is a Cath's Pennies Designs, it is called Autumn Splendor, the length is 12x25 so it is very long, just right for my sofa table, I do like to do penny rugs.

Carol over at has requested if anyone can help with another stitchers loss, Cindy at has lost everything due to black mold, she was told she could not take a thing with her including furniture.
Carol has asked if you have any extra threads patterns or anything that you no longer need if you could pass it on, I know that as a stitcher we are kind and generous with all our hearts, please stop over and visit both blog sites.
I have already started to put together a few things. Can you help?

Next up: I did the Bead Shop Hop, I love beading, I seem to have lost two of the charms that were handed out, I am sure they will show up.

I did buy some beads for other projects.

Now I want to tell you about the Peep's I bought, I love Peep's they are yummy and so cute, however I did not like this taste, it was too blah, not really a pumpkin spice flavor, I still like the yellow plain ones.

Happy Halloween to all who celebrate the holiday, eat loads of candy and have spooky fun.

I have truely been to hell and back because of Google

Greetings to all my faithful followers, I thank-you from my heart, welcome to my new and just dropping by followers.

I have spent the last three weeks trying to get into my BlogSpot, oh my goodness, I wanted to say some very bad words but refrained, someone had accessed my account and changed all my information, including my favorite band security question, wow what a bad time I had.
Thank-you to the many emails from followers who were concerned where I was, you all are wonderful.

I have been very busy stitching, and getting ready for retirement, I will be officially done on October 30th, I will miss all my co-workers so much they are my family, I love them all.
I have 20 days and a wake-up call, that is the day I turn in all my assigned equipment and my work vehicle, I am sad but on the same note happy and excited.

I have been stitching and took a beading class,  the first item is a kit I bought from my friend LaRue,
I love the bright blues of this project, I had to stitch the strawberry three times only because I put the  template on the fabric twice the wrong way.

I love this,  it will sit in my hutch.

Next is a beautiful  Needle Roll from the Shepherds Bush Fold series, I finished stitching this two weeks ago, I love this  set I just need to put the stitched piece  on the Shaker Box top, soon I will have all the pieces stitched  and put together.

This is the next in the Shepherds Fold series it is the Ruler Case, it is so cute, I plan on stitching on it  this weekend.
Up next is the  Scattered  Seed Samplers Harvest Waiting, I have joined Tammy Blacks Series this is the third in the series, I have started to stitch this  and have the bird almost done, I will show a picture on my next post of Blogger will cooperate with me.
Well things are hopping around here and soon they will slow down, still I am putting in long hours, I will miss my job but have plans to visit and help my Mother more,  help with Meals on Wheels, help with funerals at Church and of course stitch and stitch and of course stitch.
Until next time Peace to you All.
