Tis the Gift and Dandy Dreams

Both are back from the framers!  Now I have some major rearranging to do on some walls.  But that's ok...there's nothing as delightful as hanging new needlework.

Tis the Gift - La D Da




Dandy Dreams - Silver Creek Samplers
I can scarcely believe that August is almost over.  And yesterday was so cool, not even making it to 70 degrees, it was as if fall had already arrived. 

To tell the truth, I'm glad to see the backside of August. I'm glad that I had some bright moments filled with needlework and my stitching friends, because otherwise, it was not a good month.  Waaaay too much drama for my tastes, and most of it was caused by my crazy neighbors.  They just have too much time on their hands and like to foment trouble.  Whereas most people avoid drama, they seem to thrive on it.  Lucky me, huh?  But school starts soon, and youth soccer will begin and they'll get busy again and then all of their bulls**t will probably end.  Phew.

  1. I love the frames you got for DD and Tis a Gift. They set the work off beautifully. I just got my DD framed too - have to get the camera out and take a picture to post. I'm sorry about the neighbor troubles - wouldn't it be wonderful if they would start thinking about moving!

  3. Love the framed pieces. So beautiful!

    You are not the first bloggy friend I have heard talk that way about August. We recently had some neighbors move. They weren't anything like yours but still it was good to see them move on. Let's hope yours do the same soon!

  4. Beautiful framed pieces! They're wonderful! I so agree -- it's fun to decide where to hang the new pieces! (I'm glad to see the end of August, but I'm not looking forward to getting into the swing of back to school. Makes sense, huh? lol!

  6. Beautiful!!!
    My husband always rolls his eyes when there are new additions because that means new holes in the walls...OR it usually means I have to redo the whole'smo so that means puttying and a whole bunch new holes...
    Neighbor crap stinks....

  9. More lovely samplers for what must be a fabulous sampler wall, Lee! One of these days I've got to get more of my stitching on the walls. After my last painting spree in the living room, I just didn't get much put back up. Now I've got a hankering to paint again, so maybe I'll fix that problem. :D

  19. How nice to have two new beauties to add to your collection, Lee--both are so lovely :)

    And, if the neighbor problems get to be too much, why not move up here--we have a house directly across the street from us for sale. Can you imagine?! The guys could bike and we could stitch :)

  20. Lovely framing. Good luck finding new spots. That seems to be the challenge for me these days.

    Aah, neighbors. I suppose a stockade fence isn't an option? You can come and be a recluse with me.
