Off to lunch and on to School House Antiques. We always have a good time junkin'/antiquing. We both picked up a few things. I really like the Aunt Jemima iron bank I found. She will be a door stop for my stitching room once I put some felt on her feet.
We got to some stitching Friday night; I worked a little bit on Girlfriends.
I failed again to take a picture of Karri's piece...she is going to town on her Autumn at HRH. Inspired by her progress and Casa Pearl at Stitching in Lobster Land who is stitching Christmas at HRH, I pulled out my Christmas at HRH on Saturday. I do enjoy working on it, but just going slow. I am pleased with what I got done.
That evening we pulled out the wool cutter to cut some strips for Karri's stair tread (again no pic) and I worked on my snowman.
I need to finish him up before we meet again at Karri's for her Harvest Moon Hook-In she is hosting at her place. Just a small group of us spending a Saturday hooking. I am hoping to get some finishing tips from the experienced hookers. Yes, yes I will remember pics of all the projects. :)
And finally....I started this post Monday morning...the piece de resistance. My GF has this amazing gift in gift giving, she finds the most interesting things and sometimes the simplest of things. For my birthday gift she really did it with something unique, but so US. It almost did not make it to the gift bag, hahaha, so I hear. She also loves to build the suspense; all day Friday " I can't wait for you to open your birthday gift". I am beyond tickled with this gift and it will be proudly displayed in my stitching room.
Thank you best GF!!

Isn't it just the neatest and sweetest thing; if only it could tell us it's story.
Hope everyone is in a good stitching groove. The sultry weather has crept back into Maine which makes things a bit sluggish, I am ready for Autumn temps (I can hear the boos & hisses from some of you). A big Welcome and How-Do-You-Do to my newest followers; hope you enjoy your visits.
Keep on Stitching.
