Happy Labor Day everyone!  I hope this finds you all well and enjoying what is left of the long weekend!

Sorry I've been gone so long...........I've been out looking for July.  Can't find it's gone.  And now August is probably went the same place July went! LOL!

I just can't believe that it's September.  Some of the leaves are changing's scary!

And speaking of 1st Halloween pattern for this year is up on my website for your consideration. "A Witch's Spell" turned out better than I expected.  I'm really anxious to hear your response and to find out if you saw her at first glance......... 

I have also put up my 1st Christmas design for this year called "Sadie's Christmas."  A very primitive little sampler that is fun to stitch.  The pine trees are my favorite part!
 Even though it "killed" me to put out a Christmas pattern before Halloween is even here........I am actually ahead of the game for once!!! LOL! 

I've spent the last 2 months, working on new patterns and getting ready for The Spirit of Friends Primitive Show on the 28th at Malabar Farms in Lucas, Ohio. I haven't done this show in 2 years and I forgot how much work it takes to get ready!  I'm thinking I'm too old for this anymore!! Ha! Ha!

The summer has gone by so flower beds are already going to seed and my poor garden did not fair well at all this year. Pumpkins and corn stalks will start popping up in the neighborhood any day now and I've already got the itch to get my Halloween stuff out.

Zoey thoroughly enjoyed her summer and it was impossible trying to keep her "out of the water."  

I'm pretty sure her middle name is "fish!"

Well, that's about all I have for now.  My son Anthony is making sauce, so I'm headed for the kitchen!  TTYL!

From wherever you may dwell, I wish you peace and wish you well........

    I know what you mean about getting ready for a show. I am doing the show in Holly, MI, next Saturday and I've not done one before and I'm about going crazy. I don't think I can make Malabar this year. Bummer!

  4. I'm not a Halloween person but I love Sadie's Christmas! When I read about the primitives show, I immediately went to Mapquest to see how far Lucas is from me. It's 5 hours. Not really too bad, but since I'm having surgery next week I probably won't be able to do the traveling : ( Sounds wonderful though! Zoey sure is a cutie : )

  5. I love Halloween and your new pattern for Halloween is gorgeous! Love it! Your patterns in general are all phantastic! :o)
