I Been Thinking

Years ago someone gave my husband a little plaque which said "Sometimes I sit and think and sometimes I just sit".

Well, I been doing a lot of sitting and thinking recently and this is what I've decided. I have only one stitching obligation left to do and that is a Christmas ornament for a stitching buddy in England. The JCS ornament issue this year is one of my favorite so far and I would like to stitch a bunch of them. So, when I clear the area to do Leah's ornie, I think I'll just finish out the year stitching ornies. I still have some LHN's to do, but I think I can get quite a few done.

Anyway, that's what I'm thinking today.

Here is a picture of the Halloween Revelry pillow I did for sweet friend Julie Buck of In The Company of Friends. She's a designer herself so that was a little intimidating, but she's also a beautiful soul so I knew she'd like whatever I did for her. This is taken from The Primitive Needle's sampler and stitched on PTP heritage. "Juliebee" as we call her in our yahoo stitching buddies group likes witchies.

And here is my little finish for the week. I can take credit for the mistakes but not for the beautiful colors; it's Shepherd's Bush My Pins kit.

Thank you for your comments and hopefully, I will get better at having something for you to comment on :) It's been a strange year both personally and on the stitching front. Thanks for hanging in there with me.

Babs, the little Halloween pillow is darling and I love the SB pincushion, too! Your finishing is beautifully done. I'm sure your friend will love the little pillow!

Such a beautiful Halloween pillow. Julie will love it.
Stitching only ornaments until Christmas sounds like a good plan. I'm looking forward to seeing the ones you choose from the new JCS issue.

My, that Halloween pillow is wonderful! And I just love the ric rac trim on your Shepherd's Bush pillow. Congratulations on such great finishes!

Your stitching and finishes are wonderful. Sometimes I'd like to just "sat" too. LOL.
But not today. I need a few more hours in the day.
Thanks for stopping by and good to see you are out blogging again.
Hugs and blessings.

Babs, wow! Your stitching and your finishing are both fantastic. I love your Primitive Needle pillow! Your SB pillow is adorable. I look forward to seeing your Christmas finishes. I'm hoping to do a few this year, too, instead of just talking about it! ;) Have a great weekend.

Hi Babs! Sorry it's taken me so long to get over here and post...what lovely finishes you have pictured here! I know that things must be getting better for you as you're able to sit and think! I hope everything is looking up for you, you and your DH are always in my prayers. *hugs*
