Stitchin' the Day Away

                    "I found my own true love,   On blue Sunday..."                                 The Doors

Singing the Sunday Blues. Nah! I am not blue, I have just been working on some blue quilt blocks.

Good Sunday morning, Pumpkins. How is the 2nd day of October treating you?   These last few nights there has been a chill in the air.  

 The leaves are slowly beginning to change color in the holler and a few have fallen to the ground. Soon we will have a quilt of colorful leaves blanketing the earth. 


   

Speaking of leaves. I finished the embroidery work in my 1st Camping block. This block commemorates when Mr. Pinker and I went camping at Oak Ridge.  

The blue goose block is the 2nd Camping Block representing Goosepond where we like to camp. 

Do you have a slow stitching project for Sunday?  My quilting project will be Cheri Payne's Santas. 

My embroidery is not fantastic. It looks like a 5 year old did it, but I am ok with that .😃 Lol I am a kid at heart. 

Dear Marianne gifted me Homespun Elegances "Delivering Plenty" so  for my Sunday cross stitch I am going to continue working on it. It has been my Thankful Thursday stitch, but I don't think ole' Tom turkey minds me working on him today . 



You know what? It  is Santa Sunday in my stitching rotation, I better choose an extra cross stitch to work on. Hmmm. ! I think I need to work on another stitch from dear Heidi at All My Scattering Moments. Today's Christmas stitch will be "Silent Night" which she posted on her blog in the Dec. 15th 2009 post. 

These are the stitches that I have completed so far from Heidi. 

For Design Wall Monday, I will be working on more butterfly blocks. All of the wings are stitched . Now I am adding the bodies. 

Time to Write My Goals for the Week . Have you jotted yours down yet?
