Fall is finally here

With the fall weather comes the falling of the leaves and temps starting to fall. Don't get me wrong I love fall, I like the cooler temps and the changing of the leaves. What I don't look forward to the the falling of the snow and the below freezing wind chill here in the heartland.

I've been stitching I've finished 1 project this year it's been a slow year. I've been working on a couple of other project one being an HAED. Here is an exchange project that I did it was for Shelley over at Shelley's Artsy Fartsy Life it was part of a Fall Ornament Exchange at the ILCS yahoo group.

The ornie that I did for Shelley.
Here is the package that I sent Shelley minus a post card that I threw in.

Shelley made this lovely card for me.

Here is the great ornie that she made for me. I have it hanging on my entertainment center.

Here is the whole package that I received I loved everything that I got.
Other then working and doing some stitching I was on a vacation with my DH we went to Florida and then took a 3 day cruise to the Bahamas. I loved the cruise DH wasn't that happy with it, we had really rough seas and he was sick both ways. You can see pics here.

Keep on stitching

Lovely stitching and finishing for your exchange. Your partners is lovely as well.

I just have to tell you that I LOVE the second HAED project of yours. Do you have a progress picture of it or have you started it yet? I just love love LOVE it! lol I might consider attempting it myself if I see where someone is having a fun time stitching it. I'm afraid of the HAED's because I feel like I will give up because they are so big. But GOSH they are beautiful!
