Yep I am already in the Spirit of the Holidays. There are so many pretty designs to chose from and create.
Since my last post I FOUND MY BUTTONS:) I had been looking to see what pieces of linen I had and in one of the clear bags with the linens I found my package of "Winter Holiday" buttons, by Just Another Button Company, that I needed to complete my hornbook Christmas ornament. Oh I was so Happy to find them.
Have any of you seen on Plum Street Sampler's blog HERE? They are having a Sunday Mystery Sampler called "Mary's Sampler"starting Sept 29th. If you have haven't, you may want to take a look. I think I am going to participate. I have just seen that there will be a second version offered that includes some specialty stitches. It's free and since I do like Plum Street designs I think this will be a very pretty sampler. Sounds like FUN to me:)
Much to share with you today.

35ct parchment linen
The front of the ornament Hornbook
This is the back side. I added my initials and changed the year to 2013.
Hooked on making needlebooks. Here is another one of my Fall versions. It's an Acorn.
I enjoyed selecting the Fall colors.
WOW How lucky I am that I was contacted by both these lovely ladies!!!
I feel like one of Santa's Elf's as I have been working on some Christmas Gifts.
Can you spy what I have been making?
I also am going to be participating in Vickie's (A Stitcher's Story Blog) SAL - Autumn Delights by Barbara Ana. If you like to participate, plenty of time to join us. After going to Barnes and Noble they did not have the correct issue of Cross-Stitch & Needlework magazine. I found one on Etsy, bought it and it has arrived. Now I get to kit it up for October 1st, the first day of Vickie's SAL. It will be lots of fun and great to stitch it with some other stitcher's. So far there are 3 of us in the SAL.
We had some rain Saturday - love it. Today was a beautiful and sunny day perfect weather 75.
Thank you for your visit. I know this was a long post.
With Love and Appreciation - Annette
