I Am Still Here But Very Busy

 Hello to all my faithful followers, I am so happy to be posting today, I have so much to show you but will keep it low key and show more later this week.

I had two of my finished stitch's framed, one at JoAnn's and one at Hobby Lobby, the price at Hobby Lobby was much less then JoAnn's.

This is Shepherds Bush I am not sure of the name, I sent the on to someone else, so sorry, the one button on thr dress is a little off, Hobby Lobby said they will correct that for me.

This is Sea To Shining  Sea By Little House, I am so loving this frame and mat, the colors are perfect for the design.
Both designs were freebies from the stash relocation pile at Minnesota Needlework Retreat, they were both started but only a little, I just felt I needed to finish them.

I have not gotten very far with This Ones For Betty, by Willing Hands Betsy Morgan Designs, I had hoped to have more done but life has gotten in the way and with fall here we are trying to get loads of outdoor work done, we have been over to my sister in laws doing cement work, working at the food shelf, we have both added hours to our week.

                                                       So sorry about the dark photos.

I hope you all will keep the people in the fire torn areas in your thoughts and prayers, it is a shame so many have lost lives and the animals who have perished, I am a little upset about the fire that was started by accident from the baby gender reveal party, did they not realize that it is dry out that way? not sure what the heck they were thinking.
It is a breezy day today with the temps climbing, hopefully we will see a few more warmer days.
Thank-you to all who have left comments on my last post, I will  be sending thank-you to those who I have not sent to soon.

Have a lovely week

I know that Betsy Morgan piece will be so beautiful.
Prayers for all affected by the fires, so sad.
Maybe now thy will change the clean-up laws.
Take care.

I need to look up the Betty chart, not seen it before. The framing is wonderful, good choices. Keeping so busy makes the time fly faster, but it's whizzing by rapidly for those of us just sitting too! Be careful, stay safe!

Beautiful framimg! It feels so good doesn't it?

Will you do the finishing yourself on the Betsy Morgan piece? I've not seen that design before but have several in my stash and a couple in progress. said...

Beautiful stitching! The frames are perfect for the stitched pieces. My thoughts and prayers are with those who are affected by the fires. Be careful and stay safe!

Perfect frames for your pieces. I really like Betsy Morgan’s designs.

Beautiful finishes! And lovely work on your other stitching as well.

Lovely framed finishes, Catherine! You always choose such pretty pieces to stitch! Enjoy your day!

The pieces you just picked up are beauties! The mat on Sea to Shining Sea is such a pretty color. Yes how the dire got started was unfortunate and sad. All those acres burned to the ground and displaced animals and people. It made me very sad when the AZ fires do the same. That is why I don't understand why fireworks are legal here? It is so dangerous but then I don't care for firework displays at all unless they are done by a professional. Enough solving the world problems! Have a great week and I hope you can sneak in some stitches.

Shepherd's Bush pieces are always so pretty. Love the stitching and the framing! The fires are just devastating - so sad. Take care.
