When We Last Left Our Plucky Stitcher....

She acquired some stash (Shh-hh-h, that's not all of it!).
(Pics are clickable)

She contemplated Halloween / Autumn /Christmas stitching:


Made progress on the Beeman's Garden but didn't finish it in time to get framed: 


Stalled on Do Unto Others:


Love that hive!!!


Got "Bewitched"


Picked out a frame for the little witch: (Aquired at HomeGoods, my new BFF store!)


Pattern for the little witch cause I know you'll ask.


Candy Corn too!


And finished Lizzie*Kate's Halloween to be made into a long cube using the fabric behind it:


Stitched up a linen pumpkin (I see more of these in my future!):


Pulled out another finish that has been buried far too long (Stitched when Mike was 6 and he's now 24. Do the math.) and will be made into a wallhanging:

And contemplated working out until Miss Ella beat her to the treadmill.


I took pics of my stitching /craft room too but I won't bore you with all of them just yet.  Here's a tease though:

So my friends, there you go!  A post with PICTURES!! Go me!  LOL!!!
Thanks for coming by and seeing what's going on in my world.
Keep stitching, kids.

Goodness...your stitching plate is full! Love the little pumpkin you made too! The beehive is perfect too... happy stitching...

You did a beautiful job on BeeMan's satin stitched hive. Lots of other nice designs - a few I'd like to get. Who designed the pattern for the pumpkin? I haven't found a squished one and that's exactly what I'm looking for.
