Hello everyone. I'm getting rid of this blog very soon and wondered if you would be so kind as to join me on my new blog MISSYLLANOUS. I'm celebrating the new blog by holding a contest for 2 pair of GINGHER's DESIGNER SERIES scissors and a surprise twist.
Hope to see you other there.

Good morning friends. Early start for me today but that's normal. I usually wake up at 5:00 a.m and can't go back to sleep so up I stay and start my day with meditation. Today I thought I might share my new craft of needle felting. Oh yes I blame it on the farmer's market that I helped DH run for 20 weeks. One of the vendors was an ALPACA WOOL seller and she had the most amazing felted creations. I always wanted a felted bead necklace so decided to make my own. Although I still need to put it all together you can see that I have enough felted beads to make a few necklaces.

Hello friends. It's a beautiful day here in Ohio today. I've been busy cleaning the garage and putting to bed the rest of the garden. Hard to look out at it now and not miss the lush fullness it once was but I can at least plan for next spring. Recently we traveled to my favorite little town called Yellow Springs. It's a very earthy town with loads of great little restaurants, art galleries and plenty of shopping. Here are a few of my favorite pics. I love the tree art:

Today you have a chance to help make history. From keeping the current President or electing a new one, local politics, and state laws we all have a chance to help make a difference ,set a standard, change the future for our children and for everyone around us. Please VOTE and know what you're voting for. So many women helped make it legal for all women to vote. I never take this for granted.

My youngest DD went down to the Smokey Mountains with her boyfriend for a mini vacation and while there she stopped by Dixie Darlin and bought me a surprise. Dixie Darlin is the only place these sleds and patterns are sold. Please if I'm wrong correct me on this. They have 9 different charts to choose from. I started on the little Penguin and will have him finished tonight and hope to share finish tomorrow. I love stitching on paper and am always surprised how well it holds up. I may even stitch a few more of these designs on paper and look for other things to glue them to and make my own ornaments. Any suggestions? How is your weekend going? I stopped by the church bazaar today and will share with you what I found lurking in a box under a table and yes it's crossed stitched related. Stay tuned as I haven't taken pictures yet. Pulling Tuna Noodle Casserole out of the oven for dinner so for now I wish you happy stitching, hugs -missy-
