A little progress on 3 pieces...

Hello! Hope you all are great! Well, my kids have been back to school for 1 week and 1 day and I had such high hopes for lots of stitching time but that has not been the case this last week!!! As it was my 3 year olds first week of school (3 mornings a week) her pre-school has a ramp-up start so I was with her the 3 days this week. I am class mom for my one daughter and have had meetings regarding that. It was back to school night at the pre-school Monday night, football Tuesday night, ballet Wednesday night, football Thursday night and Cub Scouts Friday night. Plus, my husband was away from Sunday through Friday. I'm beat!!!!

But, I did manage to get one little project started and finished!! It is the Halloween design by La-D-Da in the Just Cross Stitch Halloween issue. It has literally been all I've been thinking about stitching since I got the magazine and while I was working on other pieces. So, I finally gave in and I love it! I hope to get to a fabric store this week to get some backing and ribbon to go with it. I used some fabric that I had laying around and some brown and orange thread that I also had. I'm not even sure of the colors!
I've made a little progress on Sun Flower Inn. I think I'm having trouble working on this because all I really want to do is stitch Fall and Christmas stuff now! I'm considering putting this one away until early next summer.
And, here is My Lady's Quaker. Again, loving this but in a different frame of mind right now. I'm going to keep going on her though because I do feel accomplished after each little motif is done!

I am itching to get to a LNS that I've never been to before. It's called Where Victoria's Angel's Stitch and it's in Clifton, NJ which is about an hour from me. There are a couple fall pieces I really want and I want to get the materials to stitch the Sugar Plum ornament from the JCS Christmas issue for myself and several people. I am hoping to get there in the next couple of weeks once all this back to school craziness calms down a little bit.

Thank you so much for stopping by! Hope you have a great weekend!
