Last day of September

It's hard to believe it's already the last day of September. I've been busy working in the yard and cleaning up the garden. Still have some peppers growing but that's about it.

Now it's time to think ahead to Christmas. I guess I should be busy working on holiday crafts now that fall is here. Saw a beautiful pattern online today by Blackbird Designs that I would love to have. After lots of online searching, I guess I'll just have to add it to my wish list.

Hope everyone is having a great fall. Happy crafting.

I can't decide!

I've gotten caught up on all my chores around the house and now it's time to stitch. Problem is that I can't decide what to stitch first. My new favorite patterns are from La D Da. I'm also loving the patterns from Little House Needleworks.

Should I stitch this one.

Or maybe this one.

I'll end up doing both anyway so maybe I should stick with my fall theme.

Happy crafting.

Beautiful Fall Day

Sunday was an absolutely beautiful fall like day spent with family. My niece was in town with her toddler son. We barbequed, sat outside in the fresh air, and spent a little time fishing. I helped my great nephew catch his first fish. It was a 4 pound catfish who put up quite the fight. Cole quickly lost interest which I expected since he's only 2 1/2. Great way to relax and have fun.

I haven't been working on any crafts lately. Been busy catching up on housework and outside chores. I would love to find the time to knit some more pumpkins or stitch some fall pieces.

Happy crafting!

Planning for the future

College has started again for my daughter and she is busy deciding if she wants to go on for her MBA. Her counselor suggested that she take the GMAT practice .

She is majoring in graphic design and photograph with a business minor. She intends to eventually start her own business and we know that getting her MBA in Business will be a great asset. Veritas prep offeres her the chance to take the practice test and see if this is what she wants to do.

Maybe she should get that business degree and pursue something in computers because I don't know what we would do without the internet and all the information we can get whenever we need it.
