Heavy with pictures Post!

I have been neglectful to update my blog, and I am sad about it. But I have excuses!! Between family visiting, me visiting family, babysitting and some seriously ill friends or spouses of friends--time has just flown! Oh--and I still haven't finished 'unpacking' from Hurricane Irene's visit! Sheesh!! Then I see ALL I have to do, and I get 'bogged down' and don't do anything--that was today! Oh, I shopped and am doing laundry... but anything for only ME--forget about it!! Not one stitch put in yet!! But--I did take AND download some pictures from around my house, as I was putting them all back or up depending on what they were (coming season or outgoing season, etc...)so I will at least share them!! Without further ado...
Framed At Home with Jane Austen piece from the Sampler Girl--everyone loves this one!


Fall Crow Freebie whose name escapes me! With my husband's help in painting the plaque (I picked the color!) and attaching the hanging stuff--a lovely finish!


Simply Live by The Primitive Needle...Not your usual Quaker colors, but I like it!


Framed Joy in the Journey by Diane Williams, in a prominent place in my foyer!! Those dents you see are gone now... been sitting out too long, in a pile, waiting to be hung up!

Part of my Autumn Display... I LOVE this copper basket!! Got it at our office auction in August for $10.00--you KNOW it is worth much more than that!!


Another view...


More of my Autumn pincushions on display... Rather skimpy... need more!!


A birthday gift from my dear friend, Sheryl(no longer blogging)!! This came as quite a surprise, because I gave HER the pattern years back! I didn't want to stitch it, but I surely loved getting it as a present!!

And another stitchy Birthday surprise from another dear friend, Darlene! Isn't it lovely!?!


I made some bird pillows for my ornament tree this summer. I had planned to also make butterflies, but ... did not happen. Next year birds and butterflies will follow the bunny tree!


I am doing Carol's IStitch Mystery SAL--this is with Part 3 completed. I have finished Part 4 but not yet photographed... It is done on 25 count lugana, and will be quite cute when finished. I have NO idea why it is sideways!


I finished a bigger piece by My Big Toe designs, called A New Day. It is on very tight 32-count sparkly fabric. I don't like the fabric at all... it was somewhat torturous to use! But it is so pretty. I did the God-words in my favorite color--purple, and Love is in Red of course! It will look nice hanging in a foyer...

I have more to show, but they have yet to be photographed...sigh...

Well, must go finish laundry. I am gathering stash for a De-Stash Giveaway--so be sure to come back soon!

Hugs,
Maggee
