August Stitch from Stash update

Hi everyone,
As you can see our leaves have already started to change. Acorns and pinecones are dropping. Our hummingbirds have been tanking up getting ready to leave sometime next week.

Temperatures are getting cooler.

I finished up the model stitching project You can see it here.

I did not do much other stitching as it was a busy month trying to get some outside projects done before the first snow arrives (usually around Halloween). I did start the Prairie Schooler 2013 Santa when DH had a Dr. appointment, just not enough progress for a picture. Hopefully I'll get some more done this week when he goes back for the results.

I spent the rest of my time plowing through boxes that I had in storage. Here is the first set of duplicates. Jeanette Crews Designs Book #812: The Onmibook of Winged Things © 1996 and a Dimensions Gold Collection Winged Elegance Ornaments Set of six  Designed by Todd Trainer © 2000. If anyone would like these, please leave a comment. If more that 1 person is interested, I'll have DH draw a name on the weekend of Sept. 5-7.

Now, for my monthly update for my stitch from stash hosted by Mel at Epic Stitching.

Mel gave us an extra bonus to spend this month - I did see some new designs that I would love to have - hopefully I'll be good... but some have been calling my name... among them... the Just Nan Miss Witchy Mouse, I'm not sure why I want another mouse... as it was a mouse that had made a nest in my car vent system.  Took care of that and a few rainy days later we had a mouse move into our enclosed front porch.

also...the Lone Elm Lane Designs Halloween Resurrection. I'm not really into Halloween but I just love  that little skeleton dog out for a walk.

and Blackbird Designs Rewards of Merits new offerings are another group that are calling to me.

So far I did not spend anything.  ;)

Until next time,
Have a wonderful day!

July update and Stitch from Stash

Hi everyone,
Where did July go?
Bucky and Samantha had their vet visit for their rabies shot and health check and were given a good report.

(one happy boy)

sleepy girl...

anxious to greet our UPS delivery

We also found out some more info about them from a friend who knew their original owner. They are indeed brother and sister; but not from the same litter. Bucky is 11 years old and Samantha is 8.Their original owner had their beds in his kitchen - that explains why they like to be in the kitchen so much!

DH was sick with a fever on and off for about the past 2 weeks. Waiting to find out if it is from the kidney stone - although Dh thinks that it was just the flu. Got in my JEEP to pick up his medications, only to hear a strange noise coming from the passenger air vents (we figure some critter built a nest). The earliest appointment I could get is later this week.

As my parents are preparing to sell the family home, things I had forgotten about that were stored in their attic have found their way to our front porch - now filled with boxes of craft and stitching kits and magazines. Some of which I can now say "what in the world was I thinking - or what was I going to use that for?" So I expect the next month will be filled with finding long forgotten treasures, some duplicates, and more of the above expressions.

Now, for my monthly update for my stitch from stash hosted by Mel at Epic Stitching.

My pre-order of  Just Nan design The Charming House of Lindy Mouse from the Silver Needle- was shipped and it just arrived today for a total of $34.00 spent.

So far that's all I spent for the year... I did see some new designs that I would love to have- hopefully I'll be good and stay within my budget for the next month.

I'm finishing up the model stitching project - had to fix a mistake. I am so looking forward to starting something new this week.
Until next time,
Have a wonderful day!
