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

Good-bye summer!

Yesterday was the last day of band camp and our college son went back to Austin.  School starts Monday so summer break is over.  It always seems to go so fast!

Our first football game is this coming Friday so the business will be ramping up.  I'll be busy buying and packing sodas for the kids and adult chaperones, preparing for pregame meals, and, of course, attending practices.  Stitching and blog posting will take a back seat until early Nov. but I'll try not to disappear entirely.

I picked up my Little House Needleworks Family Sampler from the framer the other day and am very pleased with how it turned out.  I really enjoyed stitching and personalizing this one.

I also made some progress on Shakespeare Peddler's "A Weary World Rejoices".  I just may get this one stitched before Christmas this year.

Happy stitching!

What a beautiful finish on your sampler. Love the frame with it. The colors are beautiful.

I can see that you're gearing up for a busy season ahead. Just remember to take a little time for yourself occasionally and get the rest you need.

Will be watching for your next post.
