There is a mate called Pumpkin Thyme that I've often thought of hooking but there is only so much time and SOOOO many rugs. Yes friends it's wool season in the Deep South and I've been busy stashing wool yarn and planning a new rug for Off the Ocean rug camp in January. What to do - what to do - only time will tell.
For those who checked on us and inquired about damages from Irma - We came thru better than most. We had a whole section of privacy fence down that had to be replaced on our coin because of the hurricane deductible and the new section of fence that was replaced in the last disaster (the tornado in Feb) got broken to pieces by a neighbors falling tree on the property line. Oh well at least it missed our house and new repairs by about 2 ft. God is good.
I've had some fun since I posted last. Most recently I did an amazing needlepoint canvas embellishment class with Robin King at the Bristly Thistle in lovely Fernandina Beach which is only about an hour north of me. I had a great weekend with DF's Teresa B and Linda K.
I love Michele's new shop location. Bristly Thistle is housed in an adorable cottage. Lighting is great, lots of wall space for canvas display and loads of threads.
it was a rainy day but so pleasant being tucked into this cottage with happy needlepointers.
Wish I had a more complimentary photo of Robin King but I was busy concentrating on getting my project off the ground.
Some yummy trunk show pieces and a view of Michele's thread room.
Here is my adorable Steampunk Pumpkin by Brenda Stofft. My new needleminder there on the right.Every canvas should have it's own needleminder. There isn't much on the canvas yet but I'm loving what Robin King came up with for the key elements of the piece. I will fill in the rest myself.
Here is DF Teresa B's Steampunk Owl - she is going to have a blast too !
Here is the whole class - DF Linda K on my left - I didn't get a photo of her in class.
I'll leave you with a LHN Christmas ornament I did the finishing on myself. It has a beaded edge that you can't see in the photo that is pretty cool.
Happy Halloween to all my friends in blogland - thank you for your readership, friendship and your comments.
