Where does the time go??
Good grief, tomorrow is the first day of December

Well, since we last talked I finished up all my classes and retreats.

And his gift to you is a little ornament

Land Mines & Fur Bombs

I had my daughter do a little modeling for me this afternoon
and on our way out the backdoor
we had to steer around a few land mines.
The mines were courtesy of our big white pit bull,
better known as the Pigapotomus.....formerly know as the Pitapotomus.
And of course since she's white, nothing is safe....
she drops her fur bombs everywhere.
But....we still love her

So, Taylor's modeling consisted of holding the rug hooked 
~Animal Crackers~
~Rug Hooked Theodore~
from the Animal Cracker Series

I love how they turned out!!
But they are so big compared to their stitched counterparts.

~Stitched Clementine & Theodore~
from the Animal Cracker Series

An update

Well.....we finally got a look inside the old farmhouse 
It wasn't good 
It will take a truck load of money to breath life back into the old girl
It was a crushing blow as we all thought this was 'the one'
Sadly the 1898 Queen Anne might be on her last leg
So, we're back to the drawing board

But, I do have some good news....yay
My Etsy Store is now updated with 4 New Patterns 
and a fun little Pattern Book
~Merry Hallowe'en~
The book isn't new but it's been awhile since we've had it in stock
And it has 4 fun projects that are perfect for Autumn

Happy Stitching My Friends

Catching Up

Wow, do summers fly by...

But what a summer it was
We kicked it off in Kitty Hawk, NC
for my Mom's birthday.
 Mom (on right) and her BFF 
This is just a few hours into our trip, it was all downhill from here : )

We added to our family
Yes, those are chickens.
I am a chicken outlaw.

We are breaking our HOA rules
but it's totally worth it.

My husband built me the most amazing coop.
They all have names:
(now Cluck Norris, my daughters chicken turned out to be a rooster)
Emilia Egghart

We had an amazing family vacation at Kelly's Island, Ohio.

We camped a few places here in Indiana.
Over Father's Day weekend I slipped on a muddy creek bank and broke my wrist.
That put a little kink in my summer but we still managed to have a great time.
Recovering has been slow but it hasn't stopped my stitching.

Now, I am gearing up for shows and classes.

I have a few New Patterns I'm adding to my Etsy Shop this evening.
And the first of next week I'll be adding another New Pattern called ~Moon Moth~.

My photos are taking sooo long to download.
With a little luck they will be caught up tomorrow and I'll share my new patterns and class pieces.

Oh, tomorrow we go look at an old farmhouse on some acreage.
We've been looking a long time so keep your fingers crossed.
I don't think I'll sleep a wink tonight.
