Harvest stitches

While I was working on some new stitching projects I unearthed this stitchery....I thought to myself I need to finish this....it is worth finishing!  So I have started it again and here are 3 blocks that I did with fall in mind.

This is what I have done so far....just a little bit left.

Cookie Making~cross stitchy style

I love making cookies, baking, fixing food in the kitchen. I love it when the kids are home from college and eat, laugh and visit...all in the kitchen.

It is wonderful!
I've found kids talk about all kinds of things...bare their souls so to speak...when they are eating, or munching....
I learned this years ago...to have cookies for them after school and they start talking as soon as they start eating!

Baby Chicks, Big chicks and feed

I am just about done with this stitchalong! Boohoooo...
I've loved doing this and I am
going to start a small fall/harvest one...and then probably a little
Christmas Holiday one!
Keep the stitching going. It is so
fun, therapuetic and a good way
to wrap up the day....

We actually have lots of chickens
and gather the eggs in egg baskets which I have probably shared before...
the eggs get washed and then air dry...then they are put in cartons and refrigerated.

So far, so good!

Hey everyone! Just a glimpse of what I've done so far...since this picture I have finished quite a bit more.
Please leave me a comment, I want to come by for a visit and see what you have done and I don't seem to have all the stitchalong gals on my blog list! How are you coming along on your stitching? Can't wait to see all that you have done!

Snuggly quilt...

Hey everyone! This is my attempt...and I use that term loosely.... Hahaha...at an iron bed with a quilt on it!
And then my favorite...wink wink...a pie safe with pierced tin metal! Oh my...what I see in my head and then what I end up stitching are often nothing alike! I hope you can relate to this!
We actually had an iron bed at one time, now we have a wooden four poster bed that I love. And I adore quilts too.

Kitchen Blessings Part 1

I'm so grateful for a working stove and fridge...Mine don't look like this...but...I think you get the idea. Cold food when you need it and hot food for dinner! My family likes that part. But I have traveled to many countries with my father who is a minister...and I have seen people do with much less. Cooking over firerings and keeping food cold in dark cool rooms but no refrigeration. Wow....so I am indeed grateful.

Sweet little bird nest~eggs

I found the sweetest little birdy nest on my mom's patio before she and my dad moved in with us. The eggs were so tiny and speckled! I felt like I had found a real life treasure!

Thank you for coming by!
