Fall WAS in the air

We had an unusually cool July-first part of August but we are now full swing into summer with 90's and 100's. I love fall but I wasn't ready for it to be here yet as I dislike Winter so much.

Here is a finish that fit right in. I did it over 1 on 28 ct. so it is @ 2.5" square.

a finish and progress

I received this piece partially stitched and decided to finish it up. I think it will get framed and go into next year's youth group auction to fund our mission trip.

Here is my progress for this month. I think I will stop for now(almost did all of page 5) and pick it back up next month. 3 full pages and 4 partials to go.

I haven't been stitching near as much as usual....but I'm sure once the weather isn't so nice my stitching time will pick up.

Pooh Bear

Winnie the Pooh has always been a favorite in our household. A friend was getting rid of some things and this kit was among them. She had intended to do or have it done at some point but gave up....I stitched it up for her (finished at 12:20 this am) and she can frame or make it into a pillow as she chooses.
