Be Thankful Update

Not a whole lot completed as of yet, but I am making headway. It's stitching up a LOT quicker than I had anticipated, which is nice. I am absolutely LOVING how this is turning out on this fabric. It's so sparkly and it reminds me of the few short years that I spent in Michigan and fall would roll around. The ground would have a touch of frost on it and there would be nice crisp days, with the sun beaming down like dappled honey over the sugar maples ablaze in scarlet and gold and chocolate browns. I wax nostalgic for those times as they were happy ones. I miss frost on my pumpkins and the clean, crisp scent of the apple orchards nearby. The crunch of the leaves and wind picking up at a brisk pace, turning my nose red. 

At any rate, before I get *too* maudlin, here is the newest update :)

Design: Be Thankful sampler

Designer: Nikki Lehman of Country Cottage Needleworks

Fabric: 40 Count Newcastle linen by Zweigart in Moondust from Silkweaver Fabrics

Fibers: Crescent Colours in Brown Hen, English Ivy, Finley Gold, German Chocolate, Hickory Sticks and Toasted Marshmallow

Stitcher's Notes: Needle Nanny by Puffin and Company in Country Pumpkins. Began project on 09.27.2013 in honor of Cathey of Pumpkin Patch and Company and her fight with cancer. 

Well, I best be off. I have some stuff I have to do, then it's off to bed. Hope everyone is having a great weekend!
