Sweet Sunday Stitching

It is time for some sweet Sunday stitching. 

Happy Sunday, dear friends and welcome. 💓

I will be working on Butterfly Kisses today.  It is such a nice day , I do believe I will enjoy my stitching time on the porch.  Please join me. 🤗


Six butterflies to go, but today I will enjoy working on the blue one. 


I have been diligent this week about  keeping up with my stitching time- 15 minutes a day at a minimum. And I am happy to say I achieved my goal each day. 


This is the view from my front  porch.  Lots and lots of trees.  Soon they will be losing their leaves. 


On the other side of the porch is more trees and the well house. Hmm that door needs a good painting. 


Oh, I better be  very quiet . Someone is fixing to come into view beyond the pear tree. 


There she is -skinny baby deer!!! 🦌  My how she has grown. She has come for an afternoon snack . Her spots are slowly fading. 


Isn't she the sweetest? 


As I pulled out of my driveway , yesterday, she and Mama crossed the road over to the river for a drink of water.   On my return 5 minutes later, the two crossed back into my yard for their evening snack. I do enjoy watching all of the wildlife. 

Now back to quilting. 

Kathleen Tracy of A Sentimental Quilter is generously sharing an Autumn Leaves SAL. She will share the steps each Friday through mid October. If you are interested , visit, Kathleens's  blog and get Step 1 before the end of the week.   She posted Step one on September 22, 2023.

Fabrics are pulled for Step 1 of the Autumn Leaves SAL

That's what is going on in the holler this  sunny September Sunday. I am so delighted that you joined me. It made the day even sweeter.  Have a blessed day, Sweeties! 🤗

 As always...

Happy  Stitching and Quilting, ya'll

Melisa 

Autumn is a second spring when every falling  leaf is a fluttering butterfly. 

Hugs and Stitches!!!!🤗🧵❤

 Dedicated to my baby sister, Amy . I love and miss you Amo. I miss our Sunday visits.

  8. Lovely work on the butterflies. The only wildlife we see around here in the city are the turkeys that wander over from the park across the street from me. They have a routine, and visit one house after another until they wander back to the park. There are a couple of males that stand in the middle of the street all puffed up like a crossing guard until everyone gets back together.

    1. Oh how interesting, Karrin. Your area must have a very good turkey population. I had never seen a turkey in the wild until about 20 years ago and now they are all over, but they are quite spooky around here. I think the gobblers are my favorite. I bet it is a sight to see them strutting back and forth to the park.

    1. Darlene , it was a wonderful day. I was able to get a lot accomplished- quilting, cross stitching and a bit of cleaning too. Lol . I hope you had a wonderful day as well. Happy quilting and stitching. Hugs.

  11. It's fun to watch wild life around our houses. We don't see deer here but we do get bunnies, a fox or two, and wonderful birds. I enjoy "narrating" their flights into the bird feeder. They are great fun to watch. Keep making progress on your butterflies. The quilt looks great.

    1. Oh how wonderful that you are able to enjoy the wildlife in your area too. Every now and then we will see a bunny , but it has been awhile since we have seen a fox though I know they are around. I believe watching the birds are my favorite too. Thank you for the sweet visit, Bonnie . Have a very lovely week.

  14. We should all be so dedicated. Good for you to stick to your goals and accomplish so much! Your butterfly quilt will be finished very soon. Oh, sweet baby...what a perfect place you have to have such views as you stitch. Can you hear the water, too, from the porch? Just heavenly! Thanks for the heads up on the SAL. We are having dinner guests on the patio this evening. It will probably be the last as the weather is turning. Enjoy the rest of your day.
