Inspiration!

Well, I can thank all of you for this. . you are all to blame! My stitching has taken a back seat for over a month now, due to various family member's health issues, the weeds threatening to take over my herbs and flowers, and various other time consuming elements.

But recently there has been a flurry of activity here, with all sorts of delightful Halloween finishes, or works-in-progress flashing up on my computer screen every time I log on. Inspiration in it's purest form! And I thank you!

Each evening for the past few nights, I've sat down for a mere 30 minutes, and stitched just a few short rows. .and then this evening, I decided to put everything else on the back burner for a bit, and finished this:

Yes! I have finally finished The Giving Sisters!
I can't believe how much my Ott light changes the color of the fabric in the photo, but imagine an earthier wheat shade. I am gathering some different fabrics to make into a patchwork pillow, with this as the center panel.

So thank you, thank you, Thank YOU! for the continued inspiration! I love looking at all of your projects, and seeing your progress. And now keep it up because I'm already looking for the fabric and threads for my next Halloween project to put into my rotation!

Everyone who lives in the U.S., have a great Holiday weekend, and for those beyond our borders, I wish you a glorious weekend too!
