Home again!

We're back from 2 weeks of glorious vacation! And that was 2 weeks of glorious weather at the cottage, what more could you ask for? It was very restful and absolutely what we needed ~ lots of time spent boating, visiting, soaking up the sun (even a little sunburn), enjoying our little beach, and yes, lots and lots of stitching!

And while there were LOTs of bills waiting for us at home, there were also the new charts from Prairie Schooler waiting for me too. I wish I could have gotten these before I went away!




I did start a new stitching project for my holidays....couldn't resist....its a Prairie Schooler chart, since I hadn't received the newest releases yet. This is from Book 93 called Harvest Time. I started with the last chart and I hope to do all 3 and make them into a new wallhanging, well one day anyways LOL, for my new sewing room...the colour of which is still undecided! But hubby is wanting to start painting so a decision will have to be made soon. I got more paint chip samples from Home Depot, hopefully I'll have better luck with Ralph Laurin!

Harvest Time by Prairie Schooler on 18 ct Oatmeal

I am looking forwards to visiting and catching up with everyone's blogs over the next few days!

Your start looks so pretty, I love it! All of those Prairie Schooler charts are great, it’s hard to choose just one to start LOL! I am glad you had such a wonderful vacation, and two weeks of it, that is fantastic!

Glad you had a nice vacation. I love your PS charts.

If my husband was willing to paint I'd have paint in his hands sooner than he could blink ;)

I love your new patterns. I have done the turkey and am currently working on the pumpkin chart, the one up in the corner with the pumpkin, witch, owl, and cat. We must have similar taste! YAY

Wendy,

Welcome home! Your new PS looks GREAT! I did the same leaf pattern that is in book #57 (Pumpkins) and finished it as a pumpkin shaped pillow.

How is your grapevine wreath project coming along? I am stitching on my first piece from Barnyard Christmas.
