Long Over Due Post!! (Picture Heavy)

Good Morning Everyone!
This might end up being a long one, but I am going to try to keep it at a minimal.

My last post was at the beginning of August so I will start there. August was our busy camping month.
Our camp site set up (that was our spot for 2 weeks)
My husband enjoyed the cooking - bacon and eggs on the grill - it was awesome
Then we moved on to the being of school for the grand kids and football season.
#70 is my grandson
The middle of Sept I managed a finish

Then I started and finished a Blackbird design

Time - I need more time to stitch

Good Morning Everyone!
Another warm day today,
 but the corn is lovin it and is growing by leaps and bounds! Yaaaa for the farmers!!!!!

I have been working on 3 different projects since I last posted. 2 are ones that I have been working on and 1 is a new start. Really need to control myself when it comes to new starts and get some finishes in first. (that probably won't happen)

Here is my progress on The Upstairs Sewing Room

And here is my progress on July Word Play

Couldn't get it to turn the right direction but it's a good picture of my work!

My new start is a towel for my kitchen. I have a towel bar on my refrigerator and that is where I hang the towels that I stitch. Here is a picture of a few of my stitched towels. I have a couple for Valentines Day, St Patricks Day and one for Easter that I have put away.
I have quite a few Christmas ones but they are packed away with the Christmas stuff.
Well here is my new start -
I don't have any fall towels so when I saw this book at Hobby Lobby on Thursday I had to have it! We will see how many I get done! It feels funny stitching on the towels as most of them are 14 count and it has been a long time since I have used 14 ct. Its a lot easier on the eyes!
I am going to leave you with a couple pictures of my grand kids
 4th of July swimming pool party

My grandson and his dog Buddy

Well I am off to get my dishes and some never ending laundry done
Have  great weekend everyone!
Happy Stitching

Stitch - Stitch - Stitch

Good Morning Everyone!
I have a small problem, well not a real problem ,but I commented on a post and I don't remember if it was on Bloglovin, Instagram, or Facebook. The problem is I commented on this persons new start and I told her I had done it already and she wanted me to show her a picture of the finished piece.
Here it is! It hangs in my living room.
