Some Progress

Happy Sunday my friends. 
It is so gorgeous out today.  I was up in my 
sewingstudio with all the windows open
and italmost felt like I was outside.  

In my last post I showed you
the start of a new Fall alphabet sampler
I'm stitching.  I've made some progress
in the fact that it's all stitched and the
hornbook that I want to mount it on is cut 
out.  I need dear hubby to drill a proper 
hole in the whale tale top for me
and then it's on to staining and waxing.  
I think I'll use a nice dark stain 
to make the sampler really pop.
I stitched this with WDW and GA 
floss and I love the mix of Fall colors
on it.

Ruthe and I have been hard at work on our 
next pattern together.  It's a cross stitched
pocket.  It's been a bit tricky to get 
this one charted, but it's really coming
along nicely.
Here's a sneak peek.
I still have a ways to go with finishing, 
but I am really excited about this one.
I'll try and post pics as things progress
on the pocket.

Thanks for visiting and for all your 
wonderful comments.
Hope you are having beautiful 
weather where you are too.
