harvest moon

I forgot to post my finish from the other night!

This is from the Prairie Schooler Boo to You leaflet and stitched on 32ct lambswool. I started the next one, but don't have much progress to show yet. Hoping to get a little stitching in today, but we will see how the day goes!

the moon...

More progress on Harvest Moon. I forgot how fun these little projects were. Maybe they will actually be done in time for Halloween! I just need to fill in the night sky, then it's on to the next one.

I had planned on starting a few summer or patriotic projects, but I seem to be drawn more towards the Fall/Halloween and Christmas ones lately. I still may try to fit some summery stuff in since it is fun stitching for the season as well. I also reorganized our office and went through some of my stash and found several more projects that I forgot I had and now are on the to do soon list. Crazy how that happens... I also decided that some of the kits and charts I have will probably never be done, so I'll probably be listing some stuff for sale. Realistically I could be a stash-only stitcher, but who can really resist all of the new designs that come out all of the time?

a little bit of fall...

I was in the mood to stitch something with fall or Halloween colors (maybe to counteract the 100 degree heat??) so I got Harvest Moon out and was able to get in a few stitches:

Just a quick post for now - the laundry calls!

it's done!

Little House Needleworks - Pear - Stitched on a 28ct Lambswool Linen Ornament Cut.

I'm not sure why I couldn't get a clear picture of this one!

This was a fun stitch, though the flowers and bees gave me a bit of a problem. I have no idea why though... What to stitch next? I'd like to start CCN's Red White & Bloom or LK's Summer Alphabet, but I haven't kitted either one up yet. Maybe this weekend I can get that done. Is anyone else stitching either of these?
