Stitched A Bit

September is here.  What a Wonderful month this is.  School has started, Apples are getting ready for picking.  The American Football Season has begun.  I love this time of year.  One of my daughters has moved back home (she has gotten a teaching postion at the Elementary School in the neighborhood), but another one returned to College for what I hope is her final year.  So there are still three kids at home.  Tthe moving in and out really doesn't bother me too much.  However  I do wish I knew what it was like to have an empty nest, just once.  My job is still consuming so much of my time, I have had little for blogging - and reading blogs, and that is something I really miss - the reading.  I do have to try to set aside time each day for reading blogs. 

I was able to get a little stitching done in August.  


Freebie from my LNS. This is a varigated thread I purchased at Hobby Lobby called Earthy. It is a silk.
This is the latest in my Laundry Mat Stitching. It is very small, the size of a nice ornament, so including it in my 2013 Ornament SAL  THis thread was TOO varigated for me, well at least in this design. And I think I should have planned to stitch with a purpose. It was a great little project to test my patience with the thread type. And I did learn a bit. 

 I have fallen a month behind with my Guys and Belles, and I did not quite finish July.  I do want to be able to have this finished before January 2014.  I have only 3 more to go (and finish All Dressed Up).  To stitch these all as one is a SAL organized by Denise at Riverside Stitching.

This is an update on my Monday SAL organized by Deb and Linda.  I was able to take advantage of the Labor Day Monday and do some stitching.  I love to work on this B Thread Cut Thru Garden Shed.


  1. I love the floss in your little ornament Mindy. I think it looks great. Your snow people are looking wonderful. Of course, my favorite is the garden shed. Great progress.


  2. Love your stitching, 3 projects at the same time. Autumn is a really nicely done. sunny kisses from Rio, Alice

  3. Beautiful stitching!

    I'm SO behind on my snowmen/gals sal! Hopefully I'll get back to it soon.

  4. What a cute ornament for fall! The Snow people look amazing. I'm so glad you got to stitch more on your Garden Shed. I added the pic to the SAL page.

  5. Your stitching looks great. I really like the snow people. Hopefully, life will slow down for you.

  6. All Dressed Up is a lovely project. Your Autumn ornie is cute.


Thanks for sharing your thoughts and ideas.
