Finally A Stitch Post

 Thank-you all for your lovely comments on my last two posts.

We have been busy finishing yard work for the year, we were able to sit around the fire and have a weenie roast, it was chilly but so relaxing, we do not eat hotdogs often, it was a treat to have one with onions relish and ketchp and chips.

I have been working on my  Kitty & Me  design, it is prettier then I expected its positively beautiful, I have plans on doing another one but in the future, I have other projects I need to get done.

We are having craft day at Church on Monday,  this year we will be making items for the care center and homebound, I am making sun catchers for their windows, I will post a photo in the near future.

This is how much I have stitched so far how about those eyes so beautiful, I hope to have this finished soon and framed. Kitty And me Designs just click on the Kitty and me Designs, Pamela has so many adorable designs.

I did only put up a couple of fall designs this year, we were so busy I did not have time, I will however make sure I decorate more for Christmas.

The table runner I bought at a great sale a couple of years ago, it has Halloween fabric but only a couple of spots on the diamond, we do not celebrate Halloween, we do go to Mass on the first of November All Saints Day.

Happy Thanksgiving to our friends to the north, I know Canada celebrates Thanksgiving this month, so sorry for the late  post on your day, it was November 11th.

It is raining here and rather gloomy, I have been reading today and planning on getting ready to work on the Chalet Veil and Burse for St. Charles in Bayport Minnesota, I was asked to make them for the Church, it is an honor for me to do so, I will post photos after I am finished.

I hope you are all well and enjoying a load of stitching.

God Bless

Just A Little More Of The Yard

 Thank-you for your comments on my last post they mean the world to me.

I have a couple of more photos to show you.

The bench Michael bought me for our Anniversary in June, it is nice to sit on but better for a plant.

This is my St. Francis side garden, I love the look on his face so serene looking, the bushy looking plant is a transplant from another part of the yard it is a Stella D' Oro Day Lily.

This is three  plants in three different pots on stands, outside the third stall of the garage, they get so thick and pretty.

The front porch where we have coffee every morning and read for a few hours, it has come to be a summer tradition.

And this is my Mary Garden, every year I plant different flowers, next year I will not plant sweet potato vines they need way too much watering, they have sweet potato's growing in the pot which takes up a load of room.

I have seen the new designs from Kitty and Me, Pamela has some adorable designs, here is her link.



This Owl is beautiful, I may need to get this after I get caught up on all my stitching.

                                                         Such a cute Chipmunk

                                                            Another beautiful cat design.

Have a lovely week my dear friends

So Sorry This Is Late I was Going To Post On Thursday

 We have been very busy, trying to get things done outdoors before the cold comes, however I have been able to do some stitching and beading.

This is one of  the Colorful Cats designs from Pamela Kellogg Kitty @  Me Designs, I did mine on a gray fabric from on 28 CTLaguna Carpe Noctem, I do not usually buy fabric on line I prefer to see the fabric in person however I was not disappointed with this fabric.

I hope to have this finished by next weekend, I have been commissioned to do some sewing for a Church about 75 miles from my home, I will post photos of what I will have done for the Church.

Next is the firepit we put in the back yard we will be using it now that the weather is cooler and the fire danger is very low in our area. The grass was very dry and we had to treat it for grubs and the ants under ground, now we have a wonderful green lawn with the rains the last week.

A small seating area in the south side of our home.

We used to have a lovely gray fountain but had trouble with children putting dirt in the fountain and then the motor burned out twice, instead we painted it black and put cut glass in instead, I think I like it a whole lot better.

This is a design from the Black Needle Society, they send out box's so many times a year, I have had three box's so far, the first one I received I was not a fan of, the last two I like, I stitched this design for someone who likes mermaids, they also had some threads in the box that are specialty threads just for that box, I will post a photo of the box's some other time, I just do not want to make this a  real long post.

This is the latest from Scattered Seed Samplers Designs that Tammy Black sends out four times a year.
I will start this next after finishing my Kitty And Me work in progress.

I cannot believe that fall is here,  snow will be flying soon, brrrr its not for me.

Have a wonderful week, thank-you for visiting.
