Wow…I’ve been away for a while. School has definitely kicked back in session, and that makes me so much crazier!!! I bought some new stash at my LNS the other day. I’ve been watching every one’s progress on the Halloween Fairy in this issue of CS&N, and I broke down and bought it. I’m typically not really “into” Halloween…just never have been. But, I think I like this girl so much that I might stitch her up! Also, I picked up my automatic for the JN Over the Top for fall, and the new LHN Autumn Harvest. I think that I might do the LHN over 1…we’ll see.

Also, as promised a month or so ago, I am posting pictures of Baby Jack’s room. It’s really close to being totally done. I have to get the shelves up on the wall over the dresser and changing table, and also figure out something to put over the crib. I love all of the blue in this room. My mom made the curtains…she made custom draperies for a living for 26 years, so yes I’m spoiled to WONDERFUL custom draperies in every room of my house! I must also say a HUGE thank you to my brother-in-law. He is a captain in the Air Force and he made the rod for the curtains (wrapped the rod in rope and made the rope knot finials). Thanks to him taking on this project, I didn’t have to learn how to do the knots!!

That’s it for now…I haven’t been stitching a ton lately, because I think that my nesting has kicked in. I’ve been doing lots of cleaning and organizing to get ready for my Jack Hope this finds you stitching, or doing something else that you enjoy!
