What topper looks like so far.  Only three blocks left, well more like 2-1/2 as I'm currently working on one of the three.  Will be offering chart up for a giveaway when I'm done with it.  Chart is in booklet form, black and white charts.  


Enjoying the change of seasons.  Fall is here.  Cooler temps, gentle rains, soon to be color changes in the foliage and harvest time in the fields.  One of my favorite times of the year.

Dutch Treat Designs - They Followed the Star WIP

Plans were changed regarding doing a large machine sewing project.

The weather has been nice as in cooler temperatures and sunny skies, gentle breezes.  I've been taking Leah outside with her halter and leash.  Been stitching on the front porch.

Picked up the Dutch Treat Designs - They Followed the Star and am working on the third corner, third palm tree.  Have past the half way point.  Only have this palm tree, shepherds, the last palm tree in the fourth corner and wisemen to do.  Would really like to have this done by the end of August.  Plan to host a giveaway for the chart once I'm done with it.

For a smile...

Leah enjoying the outdoors.  Thought she disappeared to around the corner.  Discovered she had nestled under the hosta plant.  She knows that when the front door is open, she might be able to go outside.  She jumps on the arm of the couch and waits.  If I am taking her outside, she sits very patiently while I put on her halter.   I open the door, holding the leash and out she goes.  If I am not taking her out, I say, "No, Leah" and she jumps down off the couch and moves away from the door.  I do wonder who is training who.
