I hope you are good. I've been bogged down with transfering charts from one programme to another but have had time to enjoy some of the delights of Autumn. Apples have been picked as have the blackberries and the freezer is slowly but surely filling with crumbles and pies.
Cabbages and beans have been picked and blanched, potatoes dug and I haven't bought any veggies for a fair few weeks now: we are just eating what I have grown!
Potatoes from one small bed: a mixture of red and whites
My blog Autumn exchange has been received safely: all apart from something I forgot to put in with it, which will be sent at a later date. Sorry Lynda!..I thought it all went in the envelope a bit too neatly!
There were my crochet pumpkins, some autumn shade threads threads and the Autumn pack which I bought from Nancy at the Victorian Motto Sampler Shoppe! It was perfect, thanks Nancy! I know Lynda will do amazing things with these.
I also sent a wall hanging using one of my designs...Bewitch With a Stitch
Afterall, the Spider has to be the perfect emblem of both stitchers and halloween!
I'm not sure I will release this chart: I think I might just keep it for myself but we will see.
And, I took part in a Halloween/Autumn exchange with my Irish Yahoo Group and I received my exchange this morning. I had completely forgotten that as well as sending stuff, I get something back!
I got a beautiful hanging frame with a pumpkin stitched out of other autumn motives, some beads, some threads which I have never used before:DMC cotton perle and a Halloween Panel...thank you so much Olivia!
Right, I must love you and leave you as I'm experimenting with apple merangue thanks to the apples off my apple tree..I will let you know how it goes!
BTW I know a lot of you email the people who leave you comments; I am so sorry but I can't do that in return. Time, lack of technological know how just mean it isn't possible. By the time I finish helping my son with his homework it is 10 pm and I am just shattered....I promise I do read all your blogs faithfully and really appreciate the comments but I can't return messages. So here is a big thank you and I will continue to thank you....just not via email. Sorry xxx I hope you understand xx
Have a lovely week
