Be exalted, O God, above the heavens; let your glory be over all the earth. Find rest, O my soul, in God alone; my hope comes from Him. Psalm 57.5, 62:5

And Now September is Done

After I finished the Sampler, I decided to reward myself with something small, so I pulled out a Lizzie*Kate chart called Time for God.   I finished it on the 16th and pulled out Rocky Mountain Christmas on the 18th.  I managed approx 19 hours on it with very little to show for it;  I was trying to do 10x10 blocks but it was taking longer to keep changing the threads than to actually stitch - confetti - so I decided to just pull a few colours and stitch with those, so that is why you see it all over the place.   Next time, which will probably be in 2013, I will endeavour to fill in the gaps.  

I have several Mill Hill kits I need to do before Christmas so will be starting on one of those, probably Tuesday as I have a meeting to attend tomorrow night.  
We had a gorgeous September, temperatures much higher than average, with almost no precipitation at all.  Things are expected to change though in the next couple of days, with a rain/snow mix forecast for Tuesday and/or Wednesday; any white stuff is unlikely to stick though.  


  1. Congratulations on the finish :D And what a lovely progress :D

  2. The LK project is lovely - such a terrific finish. RMC is a beautiful piece and that is progress, even if it doesn't feel like much.

  3. I adore the "Time for God" sampler. I'm amazed at the detail and intricacy of stitching on the woman's face on one of the other projects you posted. I learned to cross stitch from my mother before I could even read. But I've never had the patience. I'm a hooker (crocheter.)
