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.

I know what you mean about busy. My posts have been a little fewer also. I love the fabric for the kitty. I have to order EVERYTHING. I think seeing the linen in person would be an absolute treat for me. I know you will love the firepit and I really like the fountain. I had to look close to see it wasn't water. That was a great idea.

You have beautiful outdoor areas! I hope you get some good use out of them before the cold sets in. It's been too hot here still but hoping things will cool down a bit in a month or so and we can sit outside.

Hello everyone, my name is Walter George I am so overwhelmed with joy all thanks to Dr. Wale spell. My Wife  left me for another man a few years back and I was very devastated because I never did anything wrong to her, I was left with my two kids and a job that pays little. I was almost giving up until I saw a testimony online about Dr. Wale and I decided to contact him. I explained my problem to him and he assured me I'll see a positive result after 24 hours, surprisingly my Wife came back the day after the spell begging me to forgive her and promised to never leave. My Wife has been back for 6 months now and we've never had any issues, am glad I didn't doubt Dr. Wale cause he sure can solve any problems with fast relief you can also contact him for help now WhatsApp/Text him: +1(978) 406-9575.

I love those cats, you chose a good one!
Your firepit area looks very inviting and your yard is lovely. I like the blue cut glass in your fountain, but sad you had to change it to that.
The Treasure Trove Trio is adorable, it looks great! Your new one is going to be nice too.
