Not much to show in the stitching dept. I am half way done, so I guess that's something. Yesterday, I sat in front of the TV, watching football and finished Caleb and Joshua who resemble a couple of Santa's elves. The verse in the upper corner is over one, and every word is a different color, so I'm taking my time with it. I confess to starting a new sampler. It's the 1827 Harriet Burry Sampler from the summer 2008 publication of Sampler & Antique Needlework. I could not resist...she just kept calling me over and over. It's another one with a whopper of a border, but a very pretty one. I'll post a picture soon. And of course, Sarah Woodham is waiting in the wings.
I'd like to say welcome to the blogging world, to my friend, Laurie. She is a fabulous stitcher, a dog lover, and "mom" to two Corgis. Stop by and visit her at Corgi Cottage.
Here's a few more pictures of fall decorations. I picked up the seeded pears on my recent trip. Someone spent a whole lot of time individually gluing those seeds on. I think they are just too cool.
On my last post, Terry asked about the little folk art birds by the bittersweet. I would love to tell you where they came from, but I have no idea. I know that I ordered them online from somewhere...sorry.
Love this witch riding a crow!
Thanks for the comments on my finds and new plate. As always, I love hearing from you.
