I only stitch on days that end in "y".

Short update

I'm working on a model this week so I can't share about that.

It was another busy week working with DS's marching band.  What a great group of "kids", band directors, and other adult volunteers!

A Finish

I finished LK's Harvest Blessings last night.  Sorry the picture quality isn't that great.  Just in time because I have a new model to  start now.

I'm also working on an ornament for an exchange.

Diane Williams (Little House Needleworks) revealed a model I stitched for her called Autumn Band Sampler.  It was a joy to stitch and I love it so much, I'll have to stitch another for me to keep.  I love how she framed it too.  She previously designed one called Winter Band Sampler that her fans (including me!) love so much that she decided to do a whole series.  I'm anxious to see what she comes up with for Spring and Summer.  Please visit her website at www.littlwhouseneedleworks to see all her beautiful designs.

No football game this week.  I'm very tired so it will nice to have a break.

Has it really been 10 years since that awful day?  I remember it like it was yesterday. I pray for all those who lost loved ones and for all us Americans whose lives were forever changed.  While we mourn all we have lost, let us learn how to live with one another in peace.

This song keeps running in my head as I watch the remembrances on tv this week:

This is my song, O God of all the nations,
a song of peace for lands afar and mine.
This is my home, the country where my heart is;
here are my hopes, my dreams, my holy shrine;
but other hearts in other lands are beating
with hopes and dreams as true and high as mine.

(lyrics by Lloyd Stone, Georgia Harkness, music by Jean Sibelius)

A Little Progress

I've had very little stitching time because of  band but did manage to make a little progress on Lizzie Kate's Harvest Blessings.  I'm really enjoying using my new StitchMate stand;  I believe I'm actually stitching a little faster on it than when I'm using Qsnaps (the big ones, anyway).

Previous progress:

The band did very well last night.  They played the first movement and most of the second of their show.  TS (or whatever it's classified as now) Lee slightly lowered our temps and has provided us with an almost steady breeze which really helped.

I hope everyone has a wonderful holiday weekend.
