Some shares and happenings...

Hello dear followers and readers~

The month of August is getting near it's end and I smell Autumn in the air! I have stitched most every day, but have little to share, as they are mostly smalls and I plan to share them after their trip to Faye, that extraordinary finisher! Although the next time I post I might just change my mind and share them anyway, just so that you know I do put needle through my linen as often as I can!

In the meantime I do have a few pictures to share of things that I brought home from the framer today. I am pleased to introduce Praise God in all of her finery...I am pleased as to how well she turned out with the molding that we chose to showcase her beauty:

(colors of molding, linen and fiber much more true in first picture)

Also picked up at the framer's was a project stitched for me by my dear Lori. It is by Shepherd's Bush Santa and Stockings and I am seriously thinking of hanging it up before Christmas and then forgetting to take it down. I LOVE it!!

Many of you already know of Faye Riggsbee (The Carolina Stitcher) and her extraordinary talent with creating lovely finishes...and lately she has been putting her own touches on some fabulously constructed and embellished project pouches! I wanted you to see the lining color, because I just love how it complements the outside of the pouch and the sweet felt embelllishments! I love it, Faye, thank you so much!

Thank you all so much for stopping by! I am just thrilled with myself for getting another blog post in August....I certainly have been lax about it this year! All I can do is my best though, and hopefully maybe in the future be better with getting here more often! 

I will be traveling to the northern part of Indiana this weekend to be a part of celebrating my granddaughter Addison Rose's 2 nd Birthday! Of course she is my Addi Bean and I just pray that the sweet years of her life are many and blessed. I know she is a blessing to me and I love her with my whole heart! Isn't she a cutey?

Until next time, may your days be blessed and your stitching time fruitful!

Oh my gosh -- the first thing I saw when I came to your blog was the pic of proud grandma with her grandbabies. They are adorable! Beautiful girls! Happy birthday to Addison! Have a great visit! Love your framed pieces too. Gorgeous!

Beautiful pieces, and I love that bag. Faye is so talented. I wish she lived closer to me(we both live in NC) so she could teach me some things. :) Your granddaughter is precious!

Love the "coats" you have given to Praise God and the SB piece. Both mouldings are fabulous! Love the picture of Miss Addi Bean! Hard to believe she is almost 2!

Have a good and safe trip!

Both framed pieces are gorgeous, Jan. I particularly love Praise God. I think I have that pattern, I may have to go dig it out now.

Gorgeous framing, they all look lovely.

Hard to believe that Miss Addie is two already but then I struggle to see where the time has gone with my own two year old.
