Hi all...

Hi blog! I read a really great post from "Kathy" (forgive me I don't remember blog name, but she talked about keeping up with all our many to do projects and how overwhelmed she felt and I agree or at least as they say "I feel you". I have been feeling that way for some time now. There are just so many projects I am doing or started... Too many to count...too many tabs open in my mind...that I have let some of them really fall to the back... Some have not even gotten to!!! Augh!!! Sigh sigh...sorry I am rambling...but Fall is one of my favorite times of the year and really wanted some fall wall hangings that I never got to so....I bought yes bought 2 on etsy. And want to share w you: the first is by "Karen Hahn of HorseAndBuggyCountry"...beautifully stitched wool applique...well worth the price
. Then I bought this beautiful pumpkin wall hanging from "Lori Rippey of homespunptimsbylori". Gorgeous pumpkin now hanging in my kitchen
. So as u can see at least I am supporting the economy and supporting 2 very talented ladies that have designed these two beauties and then handmade them! I have been slow stitching 4 other projects and cutting fabric for a 5th project which u will fill u in a little later on about but thank you Lori and Karen for making my home look inviting for Fall ..Happy Oct everyone Many hugs, Mary

Thursday Mutterings....

Hi everyone, I have not been blogging because I am trying to finish up 5 different project, yes that is 5 and the blocks I am trying to finish will move me onto to 5 other blocks and so on and so on....so I am not seeing the light at the end of the tunnel. I read so many blogs and am awed at the finishes u are achieving! Well, this is one of the projects that I have a little more hand stitching to do, the basket and lower stem and lower flower, then on to block 3! Keep stitching, (hopefully faster than me!!) Mary

Finishing Friday

Just a couple of things: 1. I finished the Baby Quilt for my girlfriend's daughter. It will be shipped out tomorrow, she is due September 5th, so just made it, Whew!! I am doing a happy dance over here, so here it is:
I actually packed this quilt on vacation in July, and started quilting it then, but just put the binding on last night. I like how it turned out I only hope she does as well... Seriously, I have about 4 other projects going on right now, so every night is spent hand stitching one of them, I thank God for my eyesight and my hands. It's weird but that is what I think of when I am handstitching, how sad it would be if I didn't have either, so am very Thankful!! Also, I have two new friends who have made a home in my gutter right outside of my kitchen window, I had to take a pic for you:
I have watched the mother make here nest in June and have been very careful not to disturb - it is amazing to watch the beauty of nature right outside your window I am thankful for that too! Well, I hope everyone has a beautiful weekend and I am praying for all those affected by those wild fires in the northwest, Lots of Hugs, Mary
