End of summer and back to work.


I had a wonderful trip to Ky visiting with my family. Sometimes being so far away from them can be tough but of course, they are only a phone call away.

Tomorrow I go back to school and I am very excited about the new school year. I truly love being a teacher.

I have managed to get some stitching in while traveling. I finished my "red house in winter" ornie and my bookmark for the ILCS exchange. I won't publish a pic of my bookmark until my partner receives it. The "red house in winter" was my first time stitching on linen. I did make a few mistakes but I am pleased with it. I left off the border on the bottom of the ornament because I just felt like it didn't go with the ornie.

I started my next "little women of virtue" piece. It is the joyful and caring pic. I am going to label this one with my daughter, Brianna's name. My stitching time will be curtailed with my back to work routine but I will try to continue stitching in the evenings after Aiden is asleep. Thanks for reading my blog and all comments are appreciated. Happy Stitching!

Wasn't "Red House" fun to do! I love all the ornaments in the series.

Beautiful pics of the beach. Sure makes me miss my home where I grew up.

Lovely - and I LOVE the bookmark :) I'm glad that there are teachers like you - some over here are just in it for the long holidays, and it shows!
