I just don't know where the time goes. Went to a retreat, did lots of stitching and added to my stash. I went to the Dying to Stitch retreat in Virginia beach earlier this month. I went with mu friends, Nataly and Ellen. I drove, so I thought I would stop at some of my favorite shops on the way. We ran into a lot of traffic so I had to cut one shop out. We did make it In Stitches in Virginia. I just love this store. I only get there once a year or so but they always remember my name.

Life's been very busy the last month. Still doing some birthday stuff, took a trip to Nantucket and forgot my camera, stitching with friends and all the normal life stuff. I have stitched, of course. Lets start with my Chessie and Me club piece.

I would like to thank everyone who send email and comments for my birthday. Stitchers are the best! I spent some time in Chatham on the Cape with family. It was a beautiful week to be on the Cape. Went to New Hampshire for a day of shopping and great food. Of course, I managed to get some stitching in.

I must say that I am obsessed with Halloween stitching. I always have been. So, my Halloween stitching has started. On my last post I did All Hallows Eve by Barbara Ana. It is now framed and waiting for October. You can click on any of the pics for a larger view.

I need to thank everyone for all the great comments. It's those comments that keep me blogging. I also want to welcome my new followers. It's been extremely hot and humid in MA this summer. What that means to me is more stitching time in the air conditioning. I was never a summer person. I don't enjoy the beach. I burn very easily. I really don't like the heat and humidity. I can't wait for the fall! So I have been doing fall stitching.

I can't believe it's been 6 weeks since my last post. The time has flown by. Been busy visiting family and friends in New York City.Went to a 90th birthday party and a christening. Both were wonderful. Done lots of Spring cleaning. Things that needed to be cleaned for a very long time. The yard and gardens have been tended too and look pretty good. Been antiquing with friends. Found some great stuff. Went to Celebrations in May and had the best time with friends. bought some wonderful new stash. And, of course, I have been stitching! I finished Nantucket Girls by PPS. I will do a another post on that piece later. It deserves it's own post. I will start with May Basket by BBD. So cute.

I want to thank everyone for reading my blog and leaving great comments. They mean so much to me. Before I get into my stitching I would like to say a few words about Boston and the wonderful people who live here. I was born in Boston, went to college in Boston and worked in Boston for a time. I now live on the Southshore. Boston is a kinda large city with a small town feel. When it was attacked last week my heart was heavy until I saw all the wonderful first responders, medical personnel, runners and viewers run toward the blasts to help however they could. I couldn't be prouder of the people and the city of Boston. Now that the bombers have been killed and captured, the city and state can start to heal. Please say a prayer for the lives lost and the 178 people who were injured. This is the Nantucket Girls Song by PPS. This is going to be a BAP. When finished on 36 ct fabric it will be 24 " x 14". I am about 3/4 of the way though. I am enjoying stitching this piece. These are the 3 sections I have done so far. Section 3 isn't finished yet. I love the nest in section 2. I am not sure why there is a windmill in the design. Eliza is vain. She is always looking at herself and combing her very strange hair. Sorry about the bad pics. I tried to take them outside but it was wicked windy. You can click on any of the pics for a larger view. I will be back soon. I have a wonderful win from Fiona in Australia to show you and a couple of flower frogs that I recently picked up. Until next time .... Happy Stitching! Deborah
