I'm Back!!

Hi, All! Did you think that I'd abandoned my blog completely?? I know it certainly looks that way.

It just seems like this has been an especially busy fall. I do want to update you on my stitching tho. Between pumpkin patch visits with both sets of grandkids and 2 trips to Branson, I have managed to get a few finishes to show you.

But first, last Sunday when I returned from my wonderful stitching retreat in Branson, I saw this beautiful tree in my front yard! Now mind you, it was a dull color when I left! It was so striking and so yellow Sunday, and still is! Actually more colorful than the Ozarks!

Now to the stitching: Here's another Little House ornament. It's Snowy Pines. I love the added touch of the beads.

Next is the piece I stitched for my stitch group block exchange. It's by Homespun Elegance and from the Simply Autumn leaflet.

This Waxing Moon design was the block that I received from my dear friend Sandy. Isn't it lovely?

And finally, I have a finish from the retreat.... This is Blackbird's Waiting for the Harvest. This is an example of a design change due to mistakes! My initials weren't spaced correctly so I had to add another row of stitches on the left side, and my friend Janet stitched the over one 2010 beside the R to correct that spacing! The result, creative changes, LOL! Thanks, Janet! You know me and over 1. Maybe I'll make a New Year's Resolution to bite the bullet and conquer over 1!

I hope everyone has a stitchy weekend!

  1. Sharyn, Your tree is beautiful...sad the leaves don't last longer. Love all your stitching. I just have to and your one over one. Didn't Janet tell you, it isn't so scary? LOL

  2. A very beautiful tree. Your stitching is beautiful. Stitching one over one is not hard. I am on my second project and I am enjoying it very much

  3. Beautiful stitching, Sharyn!

    I love your tree too...I'm a transplanted Buckeye who now lives in SE TX. I really miss seeing the fall foliage.

  4. The tree is so pretty. Living in Texas, we don't have the changing of the leaves.
    I love Snowy Pines. I have done that too. I am on the Merry Skater now.
