But soon I'll be switching to Christmas and Winter.
In the meantime, what is it about Fall stitching that's so much fun? Is it the richness of fall colors? The whimsical designs? Whatever it is, I've had a wonderful time starting a few new things and finishing a few older projects this year.
This first pic is part of a Blue Ribbon Designs sampler, called Autumn Leaves and Sunflower Seeds. Belinda's samplers can be stitched all as one big design, or broken into smaller designs. Something about this flower basket called to me. I think it was the red flowers! I used most of the recommended threads and stitched it on 32ct. Lambswool linen. It'll make up into something cute, but I don't know what yet.
Crafty Ewe in Broadview Heights one day and Clare's Stitching Post in Vermillion the next. It was heavenly. Both shops were wonderful and I was able to find lots of the fabrics and threads I had been looking for.
This past weekend we took a quick trip to New Jersey to look at another type of camper. Airstream makes a conversion van style camper and we had been kicking around the idea of using something like that instead of our trailer. It didn't take long for us to see that the van-style camper wasn't for us. But it was worth the trip to see them in real life.
I have two more weekend excursions coming up and then I think I'll be home for a while. Meanwhile, the dust-bunnies are thriving!
