Exchange Received and a Finish

Happy Saturday to you.  Hope everyone is enjoying this wonderful fall weather we have enjoyed over the past few days.

Last night I received the cutest LK ornie from Hooked On Exchanging, Halloween exchange.  Melissa sent me this cutie.  Thank you Melissa!

I also finished a November Tea Cup from Just Another Button Co.  That I've had waiting for my attention for 2/3 years ish.  I can't believe I waited so long, it truly was a quick finish.  I did leave a small part of the pattern off that wasn't calling to me.  Not sure what I will do with it, perhaps frame it for my kitchen. 

I started Dame of the Needle by WTNT, my eyes aren't enjoying the 35 ct  linen, so I also started Sunflower Inn by LHN.  Ohhh this past month I've enjoyed some knew patterns in the mail.  My backordered WTNT Paper Snowflakes and Noel Sampler arrived, yay!  I bought the linen for the Paper Snowflakes and hope to start that when I finish the other 2 WIPS.  I have kind of lost momentum on the LHN Mystery Sampler at the moment but I'm not giving up on it yet.
Last night we drove up to visit our new nephew, baby Maxton.  He is so sweet, 4 days old and very alert.  Instead of fists moving when he mad, he kicks his legs, it's so funny.  OHH and that baby smell, I just didn't want to give him word from DH- "NO"  :)
Lastly, my lil baby boy Duncan, as I was stitching he kept pawing at me hoping I would give him the ok to jump into my lap. He is not enjoying the cool mornings and wants to snuggle...
Have a safe and blessed weekend, keep Cathey and her family in your prayers, Out of all the kind things being said in blog land, we can all feel better that she is no longer in pain, her posts always brought the honesty of how painful this battle has been for her, physically and mentally.

Autumn Days

Hello everyone, I have fall on my mind, I have Apple Cider Yankee Candle burning, made apple crisp for dessert last night, ummm, the house smells so good.  Leaves are falling all around, much to the kids dismay, as they will be raking this weekend. 

OK, well now it was a busy weekend, it was the high schools homecoming weekend.  Friday was a beautiful night for football and the kids won, 55-7.  The dance was Sat night, and the rains came hard around 4 in the afternoon, and it kept raining.  I was worried as all I could think about was the rain and all the kids out driving in it.  Anyway, we met at a Japanese Steak house to get pictures with the kids, Andrew and his girlfriend Jessica, Ashley went with a bunch of giggling girls.  So happy to see the smiles on the kids faces.

A finish....Little House Needleworks Pumpkin Hollow Farms, done on 28ct Sage.

I think that's it for about now, still trying to decide what I want to do for my Fall Seasonal Exchange...I have one pulled but It's not calling to me, so I may have to find something better.

Happy Monday and have a great week...
Hugs and Stitches
