"The real things haven't changed. It is still best to be honest and truthful; to make the most of what we have; to be happy with simple pleasures; and have courage when things go wrong."

Ready for Autumn Stitching

With today's heat index at an unbearable 110 degrees, I've decided to follow the forecaster's warning and stay inside....with the air conditioning and plenty of water of course!  Perhaps it's the heat of summer that has me longing for the arrival of Autumn with its crisp, cool nights and nature's abundant display of color?  With anticipation for my favorite season, I'm ready to start stitching up some Halloween items.  I've picked four different colors of homespun cotton plaids to create into hand towels with various Autumn Folk Art designs that I'll stitch on by hand. I also purchased this pattern designed by Sandra Sullivan of Homespun Elegance of these four adorable little pumpkins which I'll be stitching into ornaments!  But no matter how much stitching I get done today, you can bet I'll be staying cool!
