Wonderful Wet and Wild Wednesday

Woke up to a gloomy, rainy day this morning and it's been breezy and raining steady all day.  Perfect fall day!  I could stand it to be just a few degrees cooler, however, it's a bit muggy.  Yesterday's 66 degrees was really nice.  I'd like to say I took the opportunity to sit and stitch and watch something good on TV, but I have spent the majority of the day cleaning out a file cabinet.  And I haven't made much of a dent yet, but at least I can see progress.  And I can now shove a piece of paper or two into it again, lol. 

Just Nan's Miss Witchy Mouse stitching was finished last week, now I just have to find a day to be able to sit and put it together.  This was a very fun stitch!

I have only two more bands on the Autumn Romance sampler to do now.  No picture of that one as it's all rolled up on the scroll rods.

And Curl Up has gotten a bit of love the past few weeks.  I was suprised when I compared it to the last picture on here.


I'm hoping I can settle in after dinner and get a few stitches in, probably on Curl Up.  I'm not sure I'm up to the metallic in the next band on the sampler today. 

Happy Stitching,

A Quick Little Catch Up

I've been working on that to-do list.  I got my 15 sided biscornu put together.

You can find the pattern on Kathrin's Blog.  This one turned out bigger than I really wanted on 28 count, so if I ever do another one, it will be on higher count fabric.  And I really want to do another one some day.

I'm 3/4 done with the stitching on Just Nan's Witchy Mouse.  I've hit a little speed bump with that one.  I think it's because if I actually finish the last little bit of stitching, then I am obligated to put it together, lol.  I'm already looking forward to stitching the two Christmas mice.

I've completed three more bands on my Autumn Romance sampler.  Only three more left to go. 

I'm in a huge block of black on Curl Up and I've been pecking away at that a little.  My urge to stitch hasn't been very strong the last couple of weeks, unfortunately.  I think about stitching.  I even want to stitch on my projects.  I just can't seem to get enough gumption to pick it up and stitch on it. 

Sorry for the lack of pictures.  Did I mention I am feeling a little bit gumptionless (yes, I did just make that word up, lol) lately?  My get up and go has got up and gone without me.  And for a non-energetic person such as myself, it makes life that much harder.  But I have vacation time in 4 weeks...

so maybe I will get some motivation soon. 

Happy Stitching!
