We Remember

Here is our downtown just now preparing for a memorial of Sept 11th.  This is a day that will live with all of us forever.

The flag is being held up by our ladder firetrucks across the square downtown as the prepare to have the memorial. 

This weekend I got together with my friends to start the Prairie Schooler "ABC Girl Club".  We are all working on different letters from the Prairie Schooler Letter Charts.  We have decided that since we cannot get together to stitch that we will report in on the 10th of each month with our progress.  Hopefully this will help us all drive towards achieving this project as timely as possible.

First up is Ellen, she got a head start on us.  She is working on Letter A and is doing her letters vertically.

Next up is Terry, she is starting at the bottom with Letter Z.  Here is her progress from last night.

And lastly here is my progress.  I basted my material so I can jump around.  Since Halloween is my favorite I selected J for Jack-O-Lantern.

Today the weather is perfect for relaxing and stitching the day away.  Hopefully my eyes will hold out.  I have so many projects underway that I just don't know where to start.

Enjoy your day as you think about Sept 11th.....  God Bless America.......

First Finish - LJP Design

Hurray, I finally finished my first Laura J Perin Design.  It is called Sunflower Star.  When I selected and started this one a long time ago I selected colors to match the sunflower design in my kitchen.  This is so funny.  I finally get this done and guess what, we are in the process of painting and changing the kitchen.  It will no longer be sunflowers.  Oh well, I still love this design and will find another place for it in my home.  As to how to finish it is still a mystery.  I truly enjoy Laura's designs and have a couple others to do.  I have been good, I haven't purchased any new ones until I finish the two I have kitted and ready to go.

Here is my finish.....  Whooo Hooo!!!!!

I am still working on my halloween cross stitch project by Prairie Moon.  My progress is going slow on it but what else it new.  This truly is the time of year that I love to sit and stitch all day. That means nothing else gets done around the house.  In fact, the dogs continue to watch me and hope that I will stop at anytime and play with them.  Don't worry, they still get lots of attention. 

I leave you to continue my stitchy fun....
