This is my progress picture of LHN's Peach Tree Cottage. It's about 2 months worth of stitching, I know, not much but it's something if you ask me. I have so many WIP"S to finish, I should really take a break from this and try to finish one of many WIP's. Nah, I wanna start something new, SOOOOOO I decided to start this:

It's Blackbird Designs Keepsake Box and Pinkeep, Loose Feathers pattern #33. I'm doing the Keepsake box and will frame the stitching instead of making into a box. This is for our bedroom walls. Still not much on the walls even though we've been in the house 6 years. Geeze, I better get going on that. And I got the Just Cross Stitch Ornament Issue to page through, so I'M SURE there will be something in it for me to work on.

Anything else going on here?? Well, the kids finished 8 days of school (2 4-day weeks) and they are tired in the morning and when they get home. My little one, Sam, is mad that people aren't always available to play after-school. Chris is still working and working 5 days a week instead of the 4 that was in place at the beginning of the summer before he went on furlough. Quiet days for me to catch up on stitching, blogs, emails and of course, the never ending battle with laundry and housework.

I hope you enjoy the pictures of my stitching and I apologize for the one picture that is sideways, I couldn't figure out how to fix that. Something my daughter will have to teach me. Love her. :)

Gotta run and get after school snacks ready for always hungry 12 year old. Have a good weekend and thanks for coming to my blog!!

LOVE your WIPs! The CCN piece is nice and I've never heard of Loose Feathers, but it's a great piece. Looking forward to seeing that one.

Great start on Peach Cottage! I have that LF in my collection screaming at me to stitch, with the others! LOL

Love them! You are doing a fantastic job and I can't wait to see more.

I really do need to get all of my cross stitching unpacked. We've been in this house now for 6 1/2 months! YIKES!
