Summer is coming to an end.......

The last days of summer of approaching and the kids want to go back to school but they don't. Funny how that always works. Today we took the kids to Cook's Forest to ride bumper boats and go karts and play miniature golf. They had a good time. Abby couldn't figure out how to get the bumper boats to always go straight when she wanted it to, just around and around in circles.

While we were out, I of course coerced my family to stop at our LNS, The Stitcher's Stash. I was doing a little more stash building. I bought the Loose Feathers Designs Nos. 35, 36, & 37 from Blackbird Designs. I got the wooden pincushion form to put the one sewing piece in. I also picked up the frame that "From Sea To Shining Sea" goes in. I am so excited. I also picked up the needlecase and scissor fob from Little House Needleworks.

Oh and I forgot to mention that as soon as I am done with the "From Sea To Shining Sea" series, I am going to start the "Winter Wonderland" serious by Country Cottage Needleworks and Crescent Colors. I bought this beautiful chocolate fabric to stitch it on. It is a "solo". This means that once this color is gone, the manufacturer will not make any more of it. I love it!!
So now I am back to finish off my ornament exchange to mail out on Monday!! I can't wait for my partner to see it! I hope she likes it, but I am a little nervous!

Hope you all have a good weekend, and Happy Stitching!
