2016 just cross stitch ornament issue

 The release of the Just cross stitch ornament issue. 
I look forward to it each year.  Some past years
have been disappointing, but this year some
beauties to stitch.  The first piece is on
page 59.  From the heart.   The colors
so much prettier then the photo in the magazine. 
 This one is on page 10.  The sunflower seed.
I love sunflowers so I had to do this one.
I switched  the threads and gave Santa a
smile.  What are your favorites? 
 Fall is here and I am enjoying all the colors.
Two different parks I walk at.

 My rose bush is still blooming, these 
have an amazing smell to them.
Living 40 min from the smokey mountains
Is always a treat.  Last week I did day trips
Monday and Wednesday.   The trees this
time of year are a treat.  Thank you
for all of your kinds words.  I hope
everyone  is enjoying the fall.

almost 2 months without a post- an update

 I am settled in my new home.  It's hard
to believe it is almost 2 months from
my last post.  I am so happy where I am,
god is good.   I am very comfortable in 
this new chapter of my life.  I haven't
Been stitching a lot.  It's fall and I am getting
back into a routine.  This pattern is by
Twisted threads.
 These are two planters my brother in
made for me.  In my region,  pansies will
last until about march.  They are one 
of my favorite flowers as with sunflowers. 

My clothesline  brings me as much joy as
my garden and stitching does.   Nothing
like sheets dried on the line. 
this metal box was found in the attic
with a bunch of other  things.  It was
made in NY and looks like cross stitch. 
My gas fireplace 
The beautiful  wreath above the fireplace.
My livingroom.  I purchased a wooden
antique ironing board and use it as a display
table in the livingroom.  Super cool and only 
40 dollars.  It's perfect. 
My dad purchased a wagon for me.
I use it for my gardening and 
I have used it several times already.
My vintage Pyrex collection. 
I use these pieces everday.  They
Do not make dishes like this amymore.
I just got service to view blogs, so I will
be catching up on posts.  I will have more 
pictures to post later on.  HAPPY FALL.
