Necklaces and a sneak peek

Here is a sneak peek at The Olde Settlement. Carol did such an awesome job stitching it! Thanks Carol!!

Here are a couple necklaces I've made~ they are so much fun! I got the cool gargoyle from my sister~ I think he is very happy to be my model!

There are actually only 2 necklaces, showing the front and the back. It is so much fun picking out the beads too! Carmen had the cool idea to use my 1612 for some jewelry~Thanks again Carmen!!

Home from Tennessee

We had a great time on Tim's Ford Lake!
I love the south. The weather was sunny and hot. Here are some pics~

Ben and Brenda invited us to spend the weekend at their house on the lake

I also got to meet Carmen Sutton! Her house is incredible, everywhere you look, you see the most awesome stitching and finishing. She and her husband Danny are the nicest people you'd ever want to meet!

Carmen finished my 1612 piece for me~she truly is a finisher extraordinaire! I am thrilled with how it turned out! She filled it with the most wonderful smelling herbs too!

We got home last night so today was spent doing laundry and catching up on yard work. It was good to get away and also good to come home!

I have almost finished stitching Halloween Garden and tomorrow I will be busy getting some new designs charted.
