The season's first Nor'Easter is upon us...

The rather large rainstorm (aka in New England terms, a Nor'Easter - meaning a storm with northeast winds... the type that brings heavy rain or snow...) that is upon us has given me some time today to stitch a bit more on Angel of Love :-) This was a treat! I got out early due to client cancellations thanks to the storm. More of the skirt today - though I wonder if that is obvious in today's pic or not. (??)
Then tonight I worked on the Garden Spot Sampler SAL. The pink flower up in the center top of the photo still needs its stem and leaves added, but I couldn't stay up late enough to do that tonight - I have to get up very early to go to "therapy school" (aka a conference on the treatment and differential diagnosis of ADHD and Pediatric BiPolar Disorder - wanna come?? - LOL!!)

New DVD Release Tuesday! We got Bewitched (watched this one already while stitching) and Herbie: Fully Loaded (there's NASCAR in this one!)

Stitched on today: Garden Spot Sampler, Angel of Love and even some 17th Century Irish Garden at work today...

***Oh, and thanks to those of you who have written to compliment my Earth Angel in the Silkweaver Showcase. You made me smile. You see, I never, ever win anything. I can't recall ever winning anything in my life... but I did catch a bridal bouquet once! Anyhow, it does not stop me from entering - that part is fun ;-)

AOL is looking wonderful. That is such a great fabric for it. Glad to hear that you were able to get home to stitch a little early today.

I'm also working on AOL. I've completed the top half of the patterns (I've got the pattern folded in half). It is a lot of fun and is going faster than I expected. It's nice to see your progress.

Both projects are looking great, keep up the good work. Have a good day at the conference.

Hope the conference wasn't too boring! I started moving down the sampler - I should have gone right and then I could have joined up with you!

Beautiful progress on both pieces, Carol :) Perfect fabric choices (you are so good at that)

I am going to try and remember to take my camera with me to my frineds Halloween parties tomorrow and/or Friday night to take a pic of my angel of Love that I stitched for her.

love ya!

AOL is looking great - you can see the progress, honest! :) Are you going to stitch the wings or leave them off? I'm tempted to leave them off when I finally get my fabric - dunno why, just that she'd look great as a 'renaissance lady' rather than an angel ... not sure ... I'm loving seeing her progress :) Your Irish garden is looking fantastic too!
