It has been sometime since posting but I have had a busy summer.
This summer in Indiana we all lived through the worst drought. Temperatures reaching over 104 degrees many days. We since have received around 5" of rain and the grass has turned green again. Rain was so much needed!

I haven't  had much time for stitching this summer and as I look up we are into fall. Our nights are becoming longer with evening falling dark sooner. And those cooler temperatures are sure a welcome.

I have started stitching this spring/summer on linen. This is new for me!  I was so intimidated with linen but once I got the hang of it!!!  I look back at all my stitching and think...wish I had done that pattern on linen!  It is fun seeing so many colors of linen. I also have stitched with Weeks Dye Floss which is a first for me too. Gotta say...I am hooked on Weeks Dye Floss!

This summer I made another change with my lap frame. I purchased a new lap frame from Needleworks System 4 and it is fantastic!!!  It sure has made life much simpler as this lap frame turns 360 degrees. I will soon do another post with pictures of my lap frame. If anyone is interested just go to and check all the models out. Many needleshops carry the Needleworks System 4 frames.

As fall is falling I always get in the mood for Halloween. So what am I stitching? Of course HALLOWEEN by Hinzeit. My pattern is Charmed Halloween Homespun. I am making a few changes with my stitching.
I will soon be posting with pictures. Until then...hope all is stitching away!

Until We Meet Again...
Happy Stitching
