We have been having the most incredible wave of weather...
in the 70s with low humidity and piercing blue skies!
The thing I love after machine embroidery is gardening...
(best of all is digitizing flowers.)
I frequently take walks around the house for inspiration...
that's my green "thinking chair" on the front porch.
It has been a great year for the gardens, but all around there are signs that summer is once again coming to a close.
I have knuckled down to start fall designs and have had some nice finishes this past month.
Food is just as much fun to digitize as flowers, come to think of it!
There are two types of people in this world:
those who like pumpkin spice and those who do not. Guess which camp I fall into? Which do you? This is going to be both my Halloween and Thanksgiving centerpiece:
For the Halloween Special Edition Cross Stitch, I experimented and turned mine into, not a pumpkin, but a postcard. We are working on some sets that would fall into the category of "Finishing Kits." For example, you could take any embroidery stitch out and then use a "Mug Rug Maker" to turn it into an ITH mug rug, or a postcard.... This isn't available yet, but be sure to comment if you think you would be interested and what you would like to make out of your stitch outs.
There is a little boy who has waited HIS WHOLE LIFE for this quilt... can you guess what state he lives in? Yes-- it's the one that has Quilt Market! And guess who is flying down that week to deliver this quilt!!
Out of 12 Frivols kits, I just finished my fourth one--- I'm not going in order, but this matched my daughters new apartment, oh so perfectly! It is kit #12 and is made up of Editya Sitar fabrics-- Blue Barn, I believe. When I decided to buy all the Frivols after the fact, most were half price, but this one was DOUBLE!! Maybe by the end of the series they were not selling as well and so they didn't make as many.
So there are just a few random thoughts as one fall day,
happily and beautifully, passes into the next.
