I So Love Fall

Fall arrives tomorrow.  Here I. The northeast, we have had some warm days and a few glimpses at collet stuff.  I live the colors of falls, the smell of fall, the soups and socks of fall!  And here it comes.  I am thrilled.  I haven't spent much time at camp.  I have been concentrating on the house.  Today I washed Windows.  Argh!  Tough job but I so love clean windows.  I also had tow finishes.  Yippee Skippy!  That doesn't happen every day.

The first is a Just Nan chart titled Needle In The Garden.  I live band samplers for days gone by.  The little stories, the instructions.  I live it all.  I am glad to have this done.  I don't have any plans for it.

I also worked in finishing up a hardanger bookmark.  This will be a gift for a friend.  I am quite pleased with that as well.  I need to get back to work on the flag.  It won't be long before I am ready to return to afghans. I am also signed up for a Celebrations in Needlework retreat in October.  I am really looking forward to it.

Where does the time go? September?

Hi all.  Yes, I know it has been quite some time.  As of tonight, windows are closed and there is a fire in the fireplace.  Chilly temperatures are due tonight.  Brrrr.  I am already wearing long sleeves most of the time.  Especially at camp.  

I have continued to work on the Flag.  Three more stripes to go!  I have a home for this framed and in an office.  Somehow knowing where it will end up makes it easier to work on.  This is a special project.


Then there is Just Nan sampler project.  I haven't done as much on that one.  

I am trying to set up a registration to Celebrations in Needlework in Stowe, VT.  Is anyone else going that reads my blog?  Just curious.
