Just for Fun!

I hope all of you are having a great week-end!  We started out with misty rain.  My DD and I went out to a favorite fabric shop and our usual delightful Sat. farmer's market and coffee.  It is wonderful when your daughter is also your friend!!  Anyway the sun is now shining and my DH and I are planning a nice walk.  First, however, I wanted to show you what I have been up to.  I did finish my Aug. goal early so I decided to do a few projects just for fun. I had purchased the PS "Boo Moon" chart and wanted to stitch up a few small ornaments. What fun!  In fact, it was so much fun that I am thinking about my first give-away.  I think I'll stitch another ornament and gather some Halloween goodies and have my first give-away.  Stay tuned if Halloween is your thing. 
Last night I started the Sept. Word Play.  It is very school oriented.  I have decided to stitch it to sort of commemorate my 30 years of teaching!!

 I bought the chart because of this design.

 I can't resist anything witchy!

  Here is my current project.

Off to a start.

If you read this blog to see photos of the NW, you will like my next few posts.  We are celebrating 35 great years so we are going on a very brief road trip.  Of course, the camera is coming along and I hope to have some great photos to share.
