Labour Day Stitching


We are enjoying a lovely 3 day weekend with Monday being Labour Day here and the weather has been perfect! It was so hard to come back from the cottage, it was just so nice to enjoy what feels like the final few days of summer. I won't be back to the cottage for the next few weekends, so I know the next time I go back, the leaves will have started to change colour.

I was able to get in lots of stitching time and I couldn't resist working on Peaches from Little House Needleworks. I actually started this on our summer vacation and put the last few stitches in today. These are such sweet little designs! The fabric you see with it is part of the finishing kit, along with the ribbon and the linen, that I ordered from Mary Kathryn at Ehandcrafts Online. She provides such a wonderful service putting these kits together for you and it makes it so much easier to finish too. I have a couple other LHN kits in my stash, I'm so tempted to start another one now.

Tomorrow is the start of school for us so always an exciting day, the kids are looking forwards to getting back into their routine and seeing all their friends again, and I'm looking forwards to it too :-D
