Nantucket basket from Lorri Birmingham Design
I made up this little basket as a gift for my MIL when we did go to Sweden. It has a little glass vase in it so can put flowers in it. She loves doing that and really liked the gift.
Acorn from Midnight Stitching
Mar designed a couple small acorns for our last retreat, I stitched up both of them but this is the only one finished. I forgot that there was 2 of them. I know, I'm a dingbat sometimes. The acorn shape came out kind of wonky, should I do something else with the other acorn?
It's another busy week here. My darn class is almost making me cry. I'm starting to see the end of the tunnel with it though. Some small things have to be tweaked but I have to ask DH about it. My son is in the high school musical and signed up for mock trial too so I'm going to drive a bit more from now on. There's lots of rehearsals and meetings. Good for him though! I love to see him getting active with different activities.
Weather is starting to turn to fall here. It's beautiful and I'm trying to do some last things in the garden before it gets really cold. I found a wasp nest in one of the bushes that I'm taking out and that has been a hassle. I did get stung bad when I first stumbled over it. Hopefully I have gotten on top of the problem so that bush can go this weekend.
Thank you for visiting and for all your sweet comments!
