Cross Stitch and Flowers!

First, thanks to all of you who looked at  my last post and especially thanks to those who commented on my sweet grand children.  I really appreciated your very nice comments.  I am glad to be home but miss the children so much! The title tells you two of my favorite things!! I have been busy with both.  After reading blogs, I think there are two types of stitchers.  First you have the ones who enjoy many projects at the same time, just alternating work on them.  Then you have people like me who like to finish one project before you start another.  Well ,I find myself in the midst of 3 different projects.  I have the flowers to finish on Hannah's Birth Sampler , I started August Word Play(to get it up this month) , and worked on a Halloween chart- all at the same time! I'm a bit frazzled.

 I hope to have this done in a few days! Again, I have changed a few colors.

 Here you have a close to being finished, "A Wicked Plant" by Barbara Ana.  I have loved working on this design.  I started it before the Word Play because I had everything I needed at home before the trip and had to buy linen in Alabama to do Word Play.

Such fun!  I made the Jack-O-Lantern orange instead of black.

 I wanted the DH to be in the photo to show just how tall my lily is(he is 5'11")- he reminds me of one of those guys holding a rake in primitive pictures!!

 Another lily!

 Oh dear-NOT AGAIN!!!!!!!

The dahlias are beautiful this year!
I hope you are having a good week and thanks so much for joining me!
