So I made sure to make some stitching time yesterday! Made great progress on one of the "Christmas In August" items!!! The punching was finished last night... was planning on putting the backing and finishing touches to it today, but got a little side tracked...
It's a Country Stitches pattern that was gifted to me by my friend Pam (no blog) a little more than a year ago. So, I think it's high time I get it stitched! ... I'll give all the details on the pattern in my next post when it is completely "finished". :-)
If anyone has an AC Moore near them... RUN, don't walk there and stock up on DMC floss! They have it on sale this week for 5/$1.00. That's nearly half price! I spent some time picking out some prim colors...
and kept the girl at the register busy for awhile too! :-) Do you know they have to ring them up by color? And, did you also know there were only TWO registers open while I was there? Yep... not a good "friend making day" today... lol! That's OK... I bought enough to last me at least a year... they might forget who I am by then? ;-)
We are also getting a good, soaking, much needed rain today! Local brooks, rivers and the canal are at or near flood level. I can hear the flowers, trees and grass drinking this stuff up though! Should help to make for a beautiful Autumn display of colors this year!!!
With the days getting somewhat cooler and the daylight getting less and less... and the crickets singing in the night... I've had pumpkins on the brain for at least a week now... :-)
Have a great week everyone!
Stay healthy and keep smiling!
