I did complete the alphabet this afternoon. I am pushing to get this project done so I can move on to other things. This self imposed 'one project at a time' requirement does get crazy some times. I am getting so close to having this one complete!!! Oh, I just noticed that I have been able to post five days in a row. Wow - it has been some time since I was able to do that.

Progress is being made. I did get some housework done today. Tomorrow I have a few errands to run. The temperatures are changing and fall is coming. It is my favorite time of year. Once again I wear my favorite sweat shirt jacket almost every day - at least part of the day. Absolutely wonderful. I love fall. Pumpkins, cool temperatures, pretty leaves.. Oh, and the smell of freshly sharpened pencils!!! School supplies are wonderful.

Almost done. I must be because Part 3 arrived in my mail box today!! I have that small corner left to do to finish Part 2. My glasses have been fixed and I am enjoying my stitching in between many trips to the dump getting rid of left over building supplies. Argh! I am glad that is done.

A new student, Sarah, sent me this. She finished it in just over a week. She didn't like the way the back stitching looked so she took it out. We can talk about that when I see her again. Meanwhile, let's all cheer as Sarah is looking forward to her next project. Another stitcher is born!!

Welcome to the new front of the house! The new steps went in over the weekend and now we have new railings. It is now so easy to walk up the front door. I am over the top thrilled with the progress and so very grateful to all those that made it happen.
Meanwhile woods are being cleared around the house. There is land now behind the fire pit!! I am constantly amazed at how much the woods have grown in toward the house in just two years.
I do have to say thank you all the people that helped to make it happen. I am currently sick with a head cold. (My first is over two years.) I couldn't stand to be outside much today. I hope to be feeling better soon. I also need to mention that I have been teaching a few people stitching... I need to add some photos of one that is almost done by my niece. Today I had two more students.

I am making progress on the middle section of this project. I did change the bird's peak to Whiskey as the color as I thought yellow was better than the brown the chart called for. I believe this is a mistake on the chart. I might also mention that I changed out the fabric to a linen rather than the Weeks Dye Works fabric. I always have trouble with that fabric and feel it is too loose. I like this fabric better.
Here I am parking the tractor in the garage. I did mow the lawn and it looks good. I had some help to be sure.

I have hardly had a moment to stitch. There is so much going on around here. Summer is in full swing and the place is hopping. It is great to get so many things done around the house but it does cut into my stitching time. I did get the first part of part 2 done. I am hoping to move on to the middle part next.
