It's Been Too Long

My dear friends, I'm sorry it's been so long
since I posted to my blog.
Where did the month of August go?
To say I have been busy is a real
understatement.
But hopefully I can soon show you
all that I've been stitching.

I've been decorating for Fall/Halloween.
It's my favorite time of the year and
I try and get the house done
as soon as Sept. hits.
I've just acquired a few really cool
pieces from some wonderful artists 
that I just have to show you.

First, I had a birthday in Aug and
my hubby bought me a hand painted
Halloween game board
that I was dying to have.
He got it from and Etsy shop
The Owl in the picture is also new
and was made by Marlene of


Next is another Owl and Pumpkin
head Make Do from
I now have a thing for owls as well as pumpkins.


And last but certainly not least 
is a hooked rug that I really 
wanted the second I saw it.
I don't hook so when the artist 
offered a make one special
order of her "1820 Sunflower" rug
I jumped at it and emailed her
as fast as my fingers would type : )
It hangs in my beloved sewing studio
and makes me smile.
I promise not to stay away so long.

I hope that all of you are enjoying
the weekend and doing something you
love.
Happy Stitching!

Nan,
Your Halloween gameboard is an awesome piece! All of your fall items are wonderful! It's a thrill to see the sunflower rug again in it's new home and so lovingly displayed with all of your treasures! Keep on smiling and enjoying the autumn decorating ( Christmas will be here before you know it! )

Happy Birthday - a little late! The game board your husband gave you is gorgeous - love the colors and the cat. All your new goodies are perfectly prim. I've been eyeing the pattern for the sunflower - maybe this winter I'll hook that one. ~Ann
