Weekend SAT


I know, I know, you've already seen pictures of fall in the mountains on my blog. But today is one of the most beautiful fall days we've had so far. Down here in the middle of NC we've actually had a fall season this year (or close to it, if you get picky). I didn't realize how much I liked the fall; normally I'm a child of the spring! The trees have turned later than they normally do and their beauty is awe-inspiring.
Speaking of which, one of my favorite blogs is Let's Stitch. Watching all the progress on UFO's, BAP's & everything else is inspiring to me. I don't know all of the info, but I've seen Friday Stitch-a-Thons with before and after pictures. Since their membership is full at the moment (with people waiting), I can't join them on the actual blog, so I thought I'd join along on my own. :) Also, Shelleen has invited stitchers to participate with her in a weekend long finishing spree, so I'm going to incorporate that in, too. My goals are to finish a Christmas ornie for an exchange, finish the Madeira biscornu, work on the Snowman pillow that I finished last week, stitch some signatures, and stitch on my Mom's travel sampler. Below is a picture of this sampler that I haven't touched in awhile. As you can see, I need to get busy on it. Anyone care to join in and see what you can start, stitch, or finish? Come on - it'll be fun!

I'll join you in this Carolyn. I want to start and finish a christmas biscornu this weekend. I won't commit to anything else as DH is away all day Saturday so I will be entertaining the kids all day. x

I checked out that blog and yes it is interesting to get some encouragement to finish those UFO's. I like the sampler you have started whats the name of it. Looks like it will be very nice love the blue.

I would love to join you, if I only had a bit time left to do so. That border of the travel sampler is simply stunning. From who is that design?

I'll join you!! As soon as I decide what I want to commit to I'll post it on my blog for all to see.

Love your sampler, it's going to be stunning.

This sounds like a GREAT idea, Carolyn ... just not sure I can join this weekend. I do hope to finish knitting a scarf, but that's about it. I look forward to seeing all the progress, though.

the tree is beautiful Carolyn. Ours are all done with the gorgeous colors now. It is suppose to snow today.
I am starting a model today that will fit right in with your stitching weekend!

Shannon said...

Your blog looks great. Becky opened a sister blog to the Lets Stitch blog you should check it out and join us.

What a great idea Carolyn! Of course I'll join you. I am always looking for encouragement to get me into the finishing zone.

Shelleen said...

We will have fun with the finishes. I will be starting tonight since I went through all of my fabric and ribbon and don't have anything left for Autumn/Thanksgiving. DH and DS#2 are going to the city anyways so I am going as well and picking up what I need :-) Thanks for mentioning me on your blog. Maybe I could start a finishing blog

Well, if I had read this post two days ago, I might have joined you! I'm in NC, too (outside of Winston-Salem), and the fall color and weather is gorgeous. Good luck on your SAT!
