Well, it won't be long now before the fall decorations will be coming down and Christmas will go up. I'm getting old....seriously. When I was young, it seemed like it took forever and three days for Christmas to get here. Now it seems like I just put the decorations away from last year. *sigh*
I've been playing around a bit in my sewing room and doing some stitching. First I will share some embroidered/appliqued towels that I've been making. All of the pictures should be clickable for a larger view.
I love making the towels. They've been really popular this year with my customers.
I've also done a bit of stitching. I don't know why I can't take a good picture, but this looks all catawonkie. This will be off to the framers next week. I've been wanting to stitch this one for my kitchen for ages. It's called "Rise and Shine" and it's by Bent Creek.
My next stitching finish was SO much fun! I just love the salt box houses, and I didn't even have to change any colors. They go perfectly with my decor. This is called "Salt Box Neighborhood" and is by Cherry Hill Stitchery. I've not stitched anything by this designer before, but I do plan to add a few more to my stash. VERY cute designs! This one will be going to the framers next week, also. I can't wait to get them back and hang them on my wall. :)
I've also been working on my BOAF Santa's. I'm on my third one (there are 4). I started them last year, put them aside, totally forgot about them, and found them again the other day. Sometimes I question my sanity. I can't figure out why I put them down in the first place. Anyway, I have an old wooden bread bowl that I plan to display them in (IF I finish them). I'm famous for finishing the stitching but not doing the finish-finish part. I don't really know why because I love to sew. Sometimes I have a hard time deciding how to finish them, so they go in the drawer until the idea comes to me. If I didn't change my mind all the time, it would be so much easier. Relate much? ;)
Well, I think I'll head off to the sewing room. My mind is swimming with ideas that I want to do. I wonder if I will settle on one? I hope so. I'm in the mood to be creative today.
Thank you for stopping by! I appreciate your visits and comments so much. They truly make my day (yes, I'm easy to please!). I hope you have a wonderful Halloween!
