Lots of new!

Hello everyone!  It's September already and I can't believe that I'm so long between posting...again :(
Where in the world do the days go to?  I have been super busy as you can see. 
 Christmastide at Holly House has just been released.  The model was stitched on 40ct. Camofudge linen from Stitches & Spice with NPI silks and a couple of Belle Soies.
Colors needed are NPI 186, 208, 345, 348, 584, 588, 915, 962, 963, 964, 965, & 991B.  Belle Soies needed are Mudpie and Collard Greens.  I have included a conversion to DMC, but they will not produce the same effect as the overdyes.  Stitch count is 197w X 166h.

My other release is called No Quitter.  Models were stitched on 40ct. Ale from Colorscapes using GA Sampler Threads, Mulberry, Oatmeal, Flax, and of course,  Dk. Chocolate.  Chocolate drop button for fob is from Just Another Button Co., and is # 4527S.  Antique Red chenille is available through Victorian Motto Sampler Shoppe.

My dear friend, Sandy had the idea to finish one into a wrap for a cookie jar.  Isn't that too cute and clever?  Sorry, directions for finishing the jar wrap are not included in with the chart, but it does show you the possibilities. 

 And here is my most precious new!  Granddaughter Remy Le was born on Sept. 7th.  She is the cutest little chunk.  I have joked that I want to paint her face orange, put a stem on top of her head, and call her Pumpkin!

The good new(s) is that I have one more session of physical therapy, and I am finished!!  I'm not 100% back to normal, but the progress since the manipulation has been enormous.  The scar on my arm isn't pretty, but it's mostly pain-free.  Now, I am looking forward to some cooler weather, stitching on the patio, and the PALS retreat in Myrtle Beach in Oct. 

Happy stitching!
