Eat, Drink, and be Scary

Stitched up this Sampler Girl freebie last week. I'm hoping to add some fall and Halloweeny buttons if I can find some..

Ren Fest pics

Here are some picture from the entrance and the inside of the festival!

Back from Maryland

My brother-in-law and his wife invited us to Maryland this past weekend for the Renaissance Festival. It was so much fun! This Ren Fest is amazing, I'll post some pics soon. The festival runs from Aug. til sometime in Oct. and there are permanent structures there for it. There was so much to see and do!! We are already planning a trip for next year and we are hoping to make costumes and dress up. They have a website . Check it out!! It's worth a drive, even if it's a few hours.

My Secret Garden

I finished this over the weekend, and just now getting around to posting it! The lighting in my house isn't so good, I wanted to take the picture outside to take a better picture but the weather hasn't been cooperative. So here it is. I am thinking about framing it in a shadow box and maybe putting some minatures of some sort to the sides.. don't know when I will get around to doing it tho. I may ask my dad to make the shadow box.

Finished Pride & Prejudice (again)

The book this time, who is like an old friend!! But I did realize one important part they left out of both the recent movie and the BBC version. The conversations/relationship toward the end between Elizabeth and Mr Darcy. The BBC version touched on it as did the newer version, but I think in both films we really miss the affection between these two. Now that I've gotten my Jane Austen fix, off to a novel a bit more "shocking" as they would say back then.. lol

Another Christmas finish

This is a Prairie Schooler freebie from ages ago. Instead of DMC I used Weeks Dye Works fibers in White Lightning, Aztec Red, Cadet, and Molasses(I think- don't have the list in front of me.) The flesh color is still DMC. I stitched it on 32 ct MCG textiles grey linen.

A Gathering of Secrets by Linda Castillo

I know, not much stitching lately but I have been on a roll reading books!  I was recently given the opportunity to read this awesome novel,...
