There is Fall in The Air

What a wonderful time to sit and stitch. Happy Fall!!!! I just wished I had more hours each day in which to get my projects done.  I love the fall time and the projects I have lined up.  Here is my progress on Prairie Moon project.

If you are working on this project or getting ready to start it I have found a few items that are in the photo and not correctly graphed.  So, watch picture of the design closely against the pattern. 

Also, I just couldn't wait to start a new Laura Perin design.  This is called Mardi Gras. I love the design, colors, and challenges. 

This photo doesn't really capture the color of this project.  Here is the full design photo from the pattern.

To keep up with all of the projects I have going on I pickup a different one each time I sit down to stitch.  That way I feel like I am starting or progressing on an exciting design.  When I keep working on the same project every time I get that burned out feeling because I am not seeing my progress as I should.

Here is my progress on the newest Loose Feathers from Blackbird Designs.  I cannot wait to see the next  part to this project.

Hey ABC Prairie Schooler Stitchy Gals, it is time for you to send me your progress updates.  Send it to me  over the weekend and I will get it posted next week unless either one of you are ready yet to start your own BLOGS.....

I find myself getting up on Sundays and spending the morning hours working on this.  Doing over one requires me to have eyes that are fully rested.  By time I get done working on this my eyes always need rest.

Yesterday I go the recent copy of "Just Cross Stitch" for Nov/Dec 2011.  I just fell in love with this project and have added it to my list of "Got to do in 2011".  I love the cardinals in the photo and the colors being used are just amazing.  This is called Red Birds by Marie Barber. This design reminds me of an old fashion post card.

Sorry for the bad picture.  Kind of hard to hold the magazine and camera at the same time.

Well, I am going to sign off with a picture of a secret I have been working on.  This package contains an ornament that I recently completed for a swap.  Once this has taken place I will let you see my handy work.  I am so excited with this.  Not only did I create on this project but I finished it also.  That doesn't happen to often around here but with all the recent tutorials being posted I found the instructions on how to do it.  It came out great.  Trust me....

Enjoy your weekend and happy stitching.....

Beautiful stitching! I love the Marie Barber piece, too--cardinals are my favorite bird.

Barb, great stitching post and I was happy that I saw most of your projects in person this weekend! I had such a great time and was so glad that we got to sit next to each other and stitch and laugh!!!

Although the swap happened before you could get there; I really think you were very lucky to go home with your ornament as it was so gorgeous and will be a great keepsake of the weekend!!!!

Hope to see you soon!
