Stash additions, a tablerunner (is that two words or one?lol), pics and a Cutie Pie

You'd think with all the college I've had, ie-several English classes, that I'd know whether 'tablerunner' is two words or one! It looks right though.

Anyway, how's are y'all doing? It's raining right now with snow to come later, so it's a great time to stay home and be crafty. I'm finishing up an autumn woolfelt table runner, take a look:

I have to sew on the ribbon on the ends and blanket-stitch along the sides and it'll be done! It was a quick project. I had to buy pinking sheers for the leaves and I'll tell ya, I've been running around pinking everything! They're so fun! I received more stash also:

On the left: Klagetoh IV Navajo rug kit; center: Dust of Snow by Plum Street Samplers; right: Pumpkin Hollow Farms by LHN. I'm still awaiting all the threads for the winter beach design in JCS Jan/Feb issue. I think it'll all be here today, maybe. I'm going to cut myself off of buying stash, 86 myself from the INS (internet needlework store, I live more than 100 miles away from a real needlework store). I've got enough new stuff to last me and I'm looking forward to starting it all.

Couple weeks ago my daughter and her history class took a drive down to Tucson to see Uof A and a missile silo. Here are a few pics for your enjoyment!

Looking down into the depths of a missile silo with one in it! Definitely brings you face to face with the Cold War and what could've happened. Past the light color on the missile, it goes down another 15 ft. Can you imagine one of these coming at you?!

While there, they went to see San Javier del Bac or 'The White Dove of the Desert'. It's a Catholic mission that was founded by Father Eusebio Kino in 1692, constructed 1797. And services are still held there:

And here is the inside where the statuary and paintings are original:

And the ceiling:

On another note, here's Cutie Pie! (Please excuse the bookcase as it's not only used as one!)

Isn't she the cutest thing?! I named her Petunia. She was definitely an impulse buy :)

Well folks, time to get off this computer; I've been on it 3 hrs already. I joined the Spooky Stitchers SAL (like I really needed to), so I updated that also.

Have a great weekend!

  1. The tablerunner is pretty! Nice job. Great new stash--those will be fun to stitch!

    Enjoyed the pictures from your daughter's trip. I saw the mission about 25 years ago when in Tucson. It was so lovely.

    Enjoy the weather and staying in to stitch!
