Happy Fall Y'all. Autumn officially rolled in yesterday and I celebrated with a finish! This lovely design is from Little House Needleworks; the colors of the linen and fibers are scrumptious. For now, it will go in the finishing pile, but when I eventually do get around to finishing it, I'm going to do something similar to what Vonna did - as a bell pull

If you are interested in having this gently used pattern, please indicate so on this post in the comments section and I will draw a name on Wednesday, 9/26.
I don't know what it is about this time of year, but once fall hits, I start thinking about next year. I think it's because I get so little stitching done for myself during the last quarter of the year. I'm usually working on ornaments and other Christmas gifts. Let's face it, half the fun of stitching is thinking about and planning for your next project, right?
Last year (2011) I participated in the Crazy Challenge. You chose 15 projects, and then started each one, one on each of the first 15 days of January. I'm thinking I may do something similar next year, but only choose 13 projects since it will be 2013...it's fun to think about, right? Could be new projects or WIPs/UFOs. Anyone interested in joining me?
Speaking of WIPs and UFOs...Mrs. Dilly-Dally on the blog Dilly Dally Days is suggesting a new term for unfinished/uncompleted projects that infers no guilt or shame with projects that are in progress. She saw a reference to this on Facebook and has adopted the term for her own projects; I may just do the same. From this point forward they shall be called PhDs! (Doesn't that sound intelligent and important?) What's a PhD you ask? Why, it is a "Project Half Done"! Genius!
I've babbled on long enough....we're going to enjoy some of the produce from our garden for supper - roasted acorn squash and grilled zucchini ---yum! Thanks for stopping by!
