September goals met~!


I am happy to post that I am into block 4 on SoHRH...Well, except for filling in that WHITE house on block 3...What a bugger and I afraid I am going to soil my little white stitches...so, I moved onto block 4...I had promised myself to do a block a month and started Aug 20...I am ahead of the game, but I know I will be doing several Christmas items and exchange pieces in Oct.... The 40ct fabric has been nice to work on and I am using DMC floss... This piece really has been alot of fun!!


I had also made the committment to work on some of my old WIP's....Here is the La-D-Da "Red House"I had started WAY back in 2002....was over half done, so I finished it off...It is on 32ct linen using the specified DMC flosses...I enjoyed making this one even if it did take YEARS~~ You guys know what I'm talking about!!lol


Lastly, I received this beautiful exchange from Darla on the Fair and Square Exchange....I love the beautiful verigations in the floss...She did not specify, but I think it is Dinky Dyes...Thanks so much Darla! Your work is very nice and I will be putting this one in a pinkeep for sure~~
Well, got to get in the kitchen to finish cooking dinner for my family...Hope you guys have a great weekend...Enjoy these fall days and nights...Its finally cool here in the Carolinas with low humidity...My favorite time of the year!! And thanks for visiting my blog you guys..I value the comments and all of your postings as well. Like I do for my first graders, I am giving you all a big thumbs up!~ Take care and happy stitching, Faye

Oh, my gosh! You scurried right through Block 3, you stinker. Good job. I'm really looking forward to that one, and now I'm motivated to get with it.

Hope school is going great for you.

You're really cooking, girl. I can't keep up with all your projects. You're a bad influence too. I just spent time changing colors on Long Dog's "Pigalle" and I have no idea when I'll get to that one!

Call me when you're back down this way.

Your Shores is looking fabulous! I can't wait to get the Christmas one! I'm waiting on it from the shop. Hope your kiddies haven't been too sick at your school.
