~ September's End ~

Hello dear friends and stitchers.

It's hard to believe tomorrow is September's end,
summer has come and passed so quickly!

I love Sundays this time of year, watching our 
Greenbay Packers play football. 

What a great opportunity to sit and stitch!
Yesterday the Packer's played against the Chicago Bears 
at Soldier Field in Chicago, Illinois.

The final score was ~
Packers 38
Bears 17

5 Big Cheers to the Greenbay Packers!

Yeah....way to go Aaron Roger's!


In my collection of antique sewing goodies I have acquired 
many different needlecases.

  I try to change the 
needlecase in my sewing bag with the 
seasons, this is the one I've picked for fall and winter....

~ Folkart Bird Needlecase ~

I love the intricate detail on the tail feathers, and the bottom

Ready for me to load a new package of my favorite needles, which
are John James Petites in a size 28.  

These needles come in size 24, 26, 28 and are always available
in my Etsy Shoppe.

The simplicity makes this needlecase so charming!


The King of the farmhouse is our little black 
Scottish Terrier named Winston.  He has NEVER been
the kind of dog that I could take walking with me....instead
I would end up carrying him!

SOMEDAY I would love to have a dog that would love
to come walking with me.....

I pass this young Airedale Terrier on my walking route. 

I've secretly thought of dognapping him!

Oh what a PERFECT walking companion he would be!


This morning as I was opening up my Studio my husband poked 
his head in my door and asked my if I wanted to take
a picture of a toad....

I said sure! 

What a shape!

It was definitely happy to be set free!


My marigolds are so bright and full on this September's End....

So bright and cheery :)

I keep them deadheaded and more little buds keep 


I'm not sure what this plant/weed is called....

I really like the decorative pods that it produces.

  It still has too many green pods, I always wait until all the pods
turn brown before I harvest this nice tall branch.

Looks great in an old crock!


Remember the branch of Bittersweet that I purchased....

I've got it hanging so it can dry nicely.

Here's a much better close up!

we will serve the Lord.

The stitching is coming along nicely on my next pattern, 
which will be a Winter Sampler.

Have a wonderful week, please visit again on Friday.

  1. I too love Sundays in the autumn. Football and stitching :) Unfortunately I am a diehard Bears fan and not so happy with the outcome of the game. I won't hold that against you lol!
    Blessings, Patti

  2. I love to listen to football games on sundays ~ I don't watch them, just like to hear them in the background whilst I stitch ~ Love your needle case ~ I have a few in my possession but not as nice as yours ~ lucky girl!
    can't wait to see your Winter designs ~
    Blessed be!

  3. Stitching & football is the best but...Vikings! Fall is the greatest for walking and my partner is a Airdale named Cooper just 13 months they are the best! He is our third one our other two went to doggy heaven at the ages of 14 & 12, so if you want a dog with great intelligence & energy I could go on....take a look if your in the market. Blessings...
