YOP Week #9



 No finished objects this week but there could have been!  I ran out of yarn on The Color Tipped Scarf....wouldn't you know?  I ordered more yarn but it is from Deramores in England so it will be a few weeks..........there's some sock yarn in there too from West Yorkshire Spinners!
 I did try and keep up with my cross stitch days this week..........Santa Sunday.....

Monthly Monday..........

Witchy Wednesday..........for some reason I really messed up the mouth!  I think I would have been better off looking at the picture than the pattern............oh well, no more 40 count for me that's for sure!
I missed Fall Friday but did do Stars and Stripes Saturday..........
I also worked on Sew She Did...........
I posted this picture this past week....I started my crocheted rag rug......I need to sew more strips together hopefully this afternoon.........I made mine 36" wide by who knows how long.  The pattern said 26" wide but I thought that was a bit whimpy for a rug...........I'm using a size Q hook.....
As for acquisitions that I actually have "in house" I bought a few patterns and downloaded them from my friend, Helen in the U.K.  She just recently opened an Etsy shop and her patterns are darling and so reasonable.....I have several of her books.....I can never get enough of her style but now I need to make some of her things!
Aren't they gorgeous?  The Dala horse pincushion will be for my daughter who collects them.
This week Fall made an  entrance...briefly but the temps are still in the high 80's F but the 90's are gone hopefully!  My Fall clematis is  blooming..........
My Rose of Sharon or "hibiscus tree" has been blooming all Summer.........and still going strong.........

Here's my first Fall mum that I got at Walmart...............so pretty!

 The spaghetti squash succumbed to squash bugs but I got 3 of them........squash that is..........I've gotten 4 zucchini and more are coming and now I need to plant for Fall!
That's all for this week folks!  Happy Labor Day on Monday for all of you here in the U.S. and please say a prayer for everyone in the path of hurricane Dorian! 
Happy Trails!!!

  1. I love the idea you have on working on certain projects on certain days. hmmmmm maybe I should adopt a version of that. Stay tuned!. Love the clematis - my mum had a gorgeous one at the front of our house and we used to have one too. Maybe I should plant another?

    1. Actually Priscilla and Chelsea of The Real Housewives of Cross Stitch podcast started it. I have to take breaks during the day when I'm working hard or hardly working so I pick up knitting or xs or something to work on. I'm hoping to dedicate Fridays to sewing as it seems I never get any of it done. I hope you have a great week!

  2. I also love Helen Phillips patterns and the print on the fabrics she uses. Lovely. Your stitchery projects are coming along very well aren't they? I think the mouth on hte jack o'lantern looks fine. They're supposed to be wonky aren't they?
    I saw some beautiful mum's at Home Depot yesterday. I"m thinking about getting a couple for the front porch. We'll see. We're going to be gone to Omaha for almost 2 weeks and I hate to ask the house-sitter to water a bunch of outside plants.
    Have a lovely day my friend.
    Blessings,
    Betsy

  4. Your cross stitch is moving right along. Your button eyed cat looks fine to me. I do not like 40 count either. Too tiny! Your newlynaquired patterns are sweet. I have a Dahl horse I got from a swedish community in Kansas. Most people have no idea what they are.

  5. Well, Sam, I'm going to enjoy watching your rag rug come together. What a great idea. And some pretty colors you're starting with. And your cross stitch projects are really coming along. I do love that Stars and Stripes. I don't think I could be so disciplined to do just a bit each day on different projects, but I enjoy seeing your different ones grow week by week.

    Your flowers are all so beautiful. I'm ready to put summer flowers to rest and get some mums. My favorite plants this summer are a hibiscus tree/bush? I planted in a planter and surrounded by petunias. I really ought to get a picture of it before it's too late.

    1. You can bring the hibiscus in for the Winter. They will bloom inside with enough light and my daughter has kept one alive for years. The petunias probably won't last but give the hibiscus a try!

  7. I love all of your projects and agree the cat looks fine to me. I have been trying to put some work into the garden myself, your plants look fabulous and I am glad your temperatures are falling.

  8. Your cat looks great! How are the kitties, you don't mention them. Hope they are ok. For some reason I am really missing Chance...must of been cause we loved him so much...as I am certain you miss Nitty and Annie the same way only double. Sending you a hug!

    1. Hugs to you too! Yes, the cat girls are fine and they have picked up "guarding me" big time...especially Grace....she's constantly checking for bugs and critters. I know they miss Nitty and Annie too....Grace and Annie were really pals. I miss Nitty and Annie terribly as they would have been soothing me from Jim's loss. I've always had a dog to turn to but not this time. They were my "therapy" dogs.I still can't get by a day without tearing up...maybe because there were 3 losses it will take me 3 times as long to recover? I stay busy and try to "work it out" literally. I'm sure they're all together and chasing a frisbee that Jim's throwing as he used to do with Nitty. Annie will join in but she won't catch any...she just likes the socializing. Oh well...life goes on...at least I'm not living in the Bahamas....those poor, poor people.

  9. Love all your projects, the Helen Phillips patterns look lovely. I have been busy in the garden too, but we are at the beginning of spring so it is bulbs tree blossoms and getting the ground ready for plantings.

  10. It seems so strange that in another part of the world the season is totally different. It's hard to get your head around it although I know it's true. It's such a huge world! Enjoy your Springtime!

  14. Hello everyone . After being in a relationship with Anderson for years, broke up with me, I did everything possible to bring him back but all was in vain, wanted him back because of the love I have for him, I begged everything, I made promises but he refused. I explained my problem to my friend and she suggested that I should contact a caster of spells that could help me cast a spell to bring him back, but I am the type that never believed in spell, I had no choice but to try, I contacted, the caster of spells, and he told me that there was no problem that everything will be okay before three days, that my ex will return to me before three days, he released the love spell and surprisingly in the second day, it was about 4 p. m. My ex called me, I was so surprised, and answered the call and all he said was that he was sorry for everything that happened that he wanted to return to me, that he loves me so much. I was so happy and went to him that was how we started living together happily again.
