Update on the Stitching Front

Good Morning Everyone!
Can you believe its the last day of August already? I keep thinking that things will start to slow down and I can get something useful accomplished but it never happens. 
Last week we spent time at Prairie Village ( a long weekend event that has old tractors, trains, buildings that you can go through and there is free entertainment, there are tractor pulls, and horse drawn plows. I think you get the picture) This is the highlight of our summer and the kids always look forward to it. We camp there all week long, some of us in campers and some in tents. Its a great time! This year I was not in the picture taking mood so what few pictures I did take I have not downloaded yet.

We have a little bit of a  break in the weather today. This morning was in the 60's so the air is off and the windows are all open and we are enjoying some farm fresh air. I love the fall air! Today my DH is out chopping Silage with some neighbors glad its not so hot out there for them.

I have a finish to share with everyone !

This is  Blooming with Inspiration 
by Belinda Karls-Nace 
Blue Ribbon Designs
I used 40 ct Wisteria hand dyed fabric from Lakeside Linens
and the called for Weeks Dye Works floss.
I started this as part of the Crazy January Challenge 2012
January 10, 2012 to be exact.
Finished it August 30, 2013
I really like the bright colors in this piece! And now to get it framed and hung up!

Now that I am done with this piece I was digging around looking for something to catch my eye to work on next and this is what I found.
Welcome October 2009 by
Brenda Gervais - With thy Needle & Thread
I started this piece on Oct 24, 2011, It doesn't feel like that long ago that I worked on it. I will have this piece done to display this October for sure. It was a freebie that Brenda had on her blog and you see it HERE and print a copy for your self.
Well that's about it for this post, I need to get ready to go to work for a couple of hours then it's a cookout at my daughters this evening. Should be fun and some great food!

Have a great weekend everyone
Happy Stitching
Denise
