Good morning, friends!
After a long weekend of driving taking my daughter to college, I'm happy to report that I have two finishes to share! : ) The Book Store is charted with a border, but I'm going to be framing it "as is" for my dd for Christmas, and the little Bless Ewe pillow is a Pine Mountain Pillow that I had picked up, but then didn't like the colors that were in the kit, so I chose my own and just love it now!!
My plans for the trip included stops at a number of cross stitch shops starting with Needle Delights in Pensacola, FL. The little shop was jam packed with charts and fabric, but it was a little hard to find anything, as the charts didn't seem to be in any particular order. That's ok, I did pick up this Lizzie Kate kit that I've seen done - Joyce, aren't you doing this one right now?
It was more than I was planning on spending, since I wanted to stop in Decatur, AL and Nashville, TN and Matoon, IL, but we didn't end up stopping at all, so I'm glad I got it. Want to know the horrible thing? I started it last night!! All I have done is the A, and I'll probably only work on it 15 minutes a day, so it will take awhile. : )
My goals for September are to finish my crazy 15 piece - "Morning Lake", and to work on both ABC Lessons and the Quilted Garden that I won from Blue Ribbon Designs. I'm aiming for 15 min/day on ABC Lessons and 45 minutes/day on Morning Lake from Mon - Wed; 15 min/day on Quilted Garden and 45/minutes/day on Morning Lake from Thursday - Saturday; and then probably as much as I can on Morning Lake on Sundays. We'll see how my plan works!
Now, onto the giveaway winner!!

Yay, DJ! I know I should have your address around here somewhere, but I might find it more quickly if you email me. : )
I have a few charts that I'll be passing along in the next little while, I think. I've gathered a number of them that I "just loved" and now I realize that I won't probably stitch them before something new catches my eye (Like the L*K Fat Men series!) So there might be another giveaway or two coming up in the near future!
Have a wonderful day!!
