Long weekend!


Today I'm on vacation so I have an extra long weekend! Yeah! Here is my progress on Autumn Bouquet. Almost finished. :-) My plans for the weekend include a bunch of finishing work. I'd like to make two pillows, a pin cushion and finish my strawberry emery. And finish my current house on HoHRH. Have you seen the preview that Kathy posted on Christmas at Hawk Run Hollow? I didn't want to like it - I still have Shores to stitch and Houses to finish and I didn't want to add yet another behemoth to my stash. But so far no luck as I like what I have seen. I can't believe I'm bummed I like something!

Have a great weekend and those of you who have a day off work for Labor Day, enjoy the bonus! Hopefully I will have lots to share on Tuesday. :-)

Great progress on AB. It's looking great! Sounds like you have a very ambitious weekend coming up with your finishing work. And yes, I'm groaning over CHRH! I told myself no, but I know that I'll just add it to the pile!!

Good luck with your finishing this weekend. It's been a long, long time since I have finished anything I have stitched. I haven't been tempted by any of the HRH patterns as I am not really into Quaker colors or patterns, but I have to say that I really love the squares of CHRH that I have seen so far. Very bright and colorful and with my most favorite Christmas song (after I Want a Hippopotamus for Christmas -- not holding my breath for a cross stitch of that one).

Hi Margie,

I'm just having a cross-over from my sewing/quilting back to cross-stitch at the moment and have discovered your blog. Your 'Autumn Bouquet' is a real beauty - such lovely colours - look forward to seeing it completed:0)

Lovely progress, Margie! The colors are just so perfect. Autumn has really settled in here so I just want to hunker down and stitch on all things autumnal at the moment.
