Stitching, knitting, reading, life…whatever catches my eye

A Finish, SAT Results and…… Stash!!!


Tuesday is Election Day in the US.  If you are registered to vote, please do.  If nothing else it gives you the right to complain about the result.  I’ve avoided a political post here on the blog (though I’ve written a few and deleted ’em) but my leanings are pretty evident in posts here and comments on friends’ blogs.

I will not tell you who *I* think you should vote for.  All I ask is that you make an informed vote 🙂  Do the research and make your own decision based on what is important to *you*.


Now, the finish.  Pine Mountain’s Ghouls, Ghosts & Witches

Finished on Saturday, November 1.  Only one day late…..

Next, the latest pic of Mirabilia’s Autumn Queen after Friday night’s Let’s Stitch Stitchathon (and a few hours on Sunday to finish off a Wisper section):

This week the mailman was good to me.  A random selection of fabric from JanesFabrics (eBay):

I can totally see the houses on the back of an LHN house as a pinkeep.  Totally.  I selected the “random” purchase to get colors that I wouldn’t normally choose for myself (success!).

And the beginning of Sea to Shining Sea (the background is the fabric):

It is taking *every* ounce of self control not to rip this open and get started.  I have got to finish the current Winter Neighborhood RR, though.  I’m going to be on vacation Thanksgiving week so I might just have to relax under that lovely little palm tree 😀

  1. Autumn Queen is looking great. Love Sea to Shining Sea but trying to resist.
    I have to start on my RR as soon as I find the box with my patterns in it LOL.

  2. Nice finish, and good stashing!

  3. Lovely finish, and your Queen is so gorgeous…

  4. I love the comment “If nothing else it gives you the right to complain about the result.” – I’ve been hearing complaints about our current administration for the past 8 years, and I’m pretty sure that some of the people who complained didn’t vote (or were foreigners, and not eligible to vote!) I’m just hoping that I’ll only have to complain for the next 4 years, and not the next 8. 

    I have resisted the temptation (so far) to add From Sea to Shining Sea to my stash – I did pick up some other LHN pieces at my LNS last weekend. I love the fabric you bought! I definitely see some LHN pinkeeps with that cute house fabric in your future!

    Have a great day!

    I have seen Sea to Shining Sea finished up and I want it! But I have a lot to finish and haven’t been doing my stitching. I suppose I can make that my prize if I ever get everything done that I have started!
    Love those fabrics from Janes Fabrics! The colors are yummy!
    Ghosts & Witches is great! It’s really a cute stitch. And your “Queen” is coming along nicely. Can’t wait to see her finished.

  6. Autumn Queen is soooo close!!!!! I’m excited for you!

    And standing in line today (for 3 hours), I started to think that’s the only reason I was voting…so I could complain. =)

    Oh how much do I love that fabric! It is fantastic!
