Progress, but no pictures

I really am stitching and enjoying myself quite a bit, but I can't show you how much - bummers. Not only can I not show you now, but it will be the end of October before I can show them to you. That is because I am doing my stitching for my PALS retreat in MB which is I think the third week of October. What I can tell you is that I finished stitching my bigger Halloween project, and my little Halloween ornament. I have finished finishing the Halloween decoration, and I am really happy with it. I also have finished stitching my little Autumn ornament, and have just a little while ago started my bigger Autumn decoration. After that, I have a little bit bigger "stitched piece" project to stitch and then start stitching my Christmas ornaments for all of the exchanges. I know it seems a bit early to start stitching things for October, but there are a lot of "occasions" between then and now which will reduce my stitching time.

Next weekend we will be having a gathering at our house of our close group of friends, and some of our second and third generation kids. We know that August in KY is almost always too hot to camp, so we choose to "camp" at our house. There will be our group of seven "old farts", my DD and DGD and my DS#2 and his new wife staying from Friday afternoon to Sunday afternoon. We think the other younger folks will very likely just come down for the day on Saturday. If they choose to stay, we have a large back yard for them to put up their tents. The younger folks don't seem to mind the heat as much as us old farts - LOL. I am really hoping we get a lot of them to come down. I so enjoy watching them with their kids and while we play games to "see" their brains working. I will try to take some pix so that I have something to show you next time.

I hope everyone is having a wonderful weekend and getting some stitching time. Until next time, have a happy, healthy, stitchy time!
