A Finish!

Hi there cloud friends.  It has been a while since I posted but I wanted to finish" For Thine Is the Trick or Treat " before I posted again.  This has been such a fun chart to stitch.  I needed a break form houses and samplers and this gave it to me.  Now I'm ready to go back to those designs.  In fact, I started "Bittersweet September" by BBD last night. This design is from the Ladies Prim Society.  I also plan to do another Halloween design for my grandson.  If you have followed my blog for awhile, you might remember that I do a design for him each Halloween. He is ten now so he has quite a collection.  I think I will do one of the Prairie Schooler designs.  I feel so bad that they are retiring, but can understand why they are ready for it..
It is hot and nasty again.  However, I think I am just getting used to it.  Every time I think we are done with this weather, it comes creeping back!! Still no significant rain since early June.  They are starting to put water use restrictions in play.  Personally, I think that should have been done earlier.  Oh well, my stitching brain is already in the Fall!

 My fabric is Lakeside Linen Vintage Sand Dune.  It is prettier than it shows in the photo. It is darker and more vintage looking. 

  Just a quick look at the garden.  I love this combination.

The dahlias are loving the sun! I do have to keep them watered.

Thanks so much for joining me today!
