Fall is Here!!

It is officially Fall today! Yippie!! With Fall arriving that means snow will be here soon. :) Oh I am sure after the first snow I will be complaining it is too cold to go outside but for now I can't wait to see the first snowfall of the season. :)

I had a small surprise waiting for me in the mail yesterday. :) Anne S. sent me a bunch of hoops and this gorgeous hand made fob!

I even had a pair of my favorite scissors that just happened to need a fob. :) Thank you so much Anne!!!

Along with the fob Anne sent me a bunch of hoops for me to use. As you all probably know, I am a hoop stitching kind of girl. I have tried scrolls and free hand but hoops work the best for me. With all the new hoops, I now need to make a stash dive and see what projects that are screaming for me to start. One design pops to mind immediately. Gentle Encounter by Stoney Creek.....but the nagging voice in the back of my head reminds me I need to start on Mike and Devin's stockings.

I worked on my HAED yesterday and I am getting close to finishing the page(page 4 I think). Finishing a page on a HAED is like a mini happy dance because it takes me sooo long to finish a page.

Speaking of stitching....that is what I am headed off to due for a bit while Megan is somewhat calm. :)

Happy Stitching!!

That's a lovely fob. Your HAED is looking wonderful...I admire the patience and time that all of the HAED stitchers put into their pieces. Loved that Fraidy Frog. I'll have to stitch that one.
