Boos, gameboards and autumnal thoughts
Do you see my right hand held high? I promise I have been stitching, not very fast but steady. I am very close to being done with my Cocoa Sampler and I have in the wings the Lizzie Kate Boo! Banner. I am very excited about getting started on it. I have decided to change the checked border to black squares and purple squares, rather than black and white. I am going to use DMC 3837 which is a good match to WDW Purple Majesty.
I have found an old stitch group member and have been invited to join her new group. I am going to go for my first session on Saturday, August 22nd. I am very excited about meeting up again with Chris. She is very fondly remembered as a lovely lady with a wonderful husband and children. Not to mention a wonderful hostess and a very good stitcher. She stitched a Stoney Creek Sampler that was to die for.
I found a wonderful blackwork Halloween game board. Witches Hat
Checkerboard Game Board is a from Sapphire Stitching and here is a link:http://sapphirestitching.com/blackwork-checkerchess-boards.html I have to admit I did have help finding it. It was posted as a WIP by a sister stitcher on 1-2-3! Stitch message board. I love it and have yet to dig thru my fabric treasure chest of drawers for a fabric for it. It should stitch up quickly too. There is also a cute pumpkin gameboard there too!
I don't have any pictures to post with this entry, my computer is fritzing out on me. I am very much looking forward to AUTUMN, soup and chili weather, cozying into the house weather. Of course my distant thoughts of my fragrant Lilac Thicket in my dreams. Happy blessing and may your needle fly!
