Cross Stitch Catch Up!

First, I would like to thank all of you who took time to read my blog about our short little trip to the coast. You made so many wonderful comments.  This will be a quick post showing what I have been doing with my cross stitch projects.  I also have something very funny to share with you.  Many of you remember the cross stitch I did fore my Grandson, Caleb.

 He said the funniest thing about it. His Mom had him call us on Sunday.  He said,"Gradma, I'm going to put this on my bedroom wall all my life, no matter where I live even when I'm as old as you."  I'll take that as a compliment!

 I have been doing the Mary Sampler 2 sew along by the wonderful Plum Street Samplers.  My linen is actually an off white color, not the blue you see here.  I had to make the angel's robe blue.  The off white color that was called for would never have shown up on my linen.

I have also been working on my November Word Play.  Again, the linen is much prettier than it looks in the photo.  Sorry for the wrinkles.  I press after I'm all finished.
 
Thanks for joining me today!  Hope you are all having a great week.  We have been stuck in fog but yesterday and today , the sun comes out around noon and we have a beautiful autumn afternoon!
