Another year slips away...

 September is slipping away just as quietly as the leaves are changing color and drifting from the trees.

And for me, another year has slipped by, almost as if I dreamt it.  Tomorrow is my 43rd birthdayI will be spending the day with my family: my mom and I will do some shopping and there just might be chocolate cake at tea time!

Here's what I've been stitchin' lately - a wool applique pillow - excuse the bright pic!




I made a more seasonally fitting dress for Kitty~

 In the hall I have a country style shelf with a heart cut out and as soon as I had finished this freebie Primitive Betty's punchneedle, I had a light bulb moment and stuck it over the heart - something I had wanted to cover for ages but couldn't find anything the right size.  Now I can change it seasonally.


And lastly I finished Purcee Pumpkin, a really handsome fella for Fall, (a Chestnut Junction pattern).





Have a great day!
Best wishes

  2. Happy early birthday!!! I hope you have a fun day! I love your punchneedle cat hanging, what a great idea to hang it over the heart and exchange it out seasonally. I also love your kitty, wool pumpkin pillow and Purcee. I need to dig my fall stuff out.
