The next best thing to stitching ...

... is stashing!
Thanks for the warm response to my LHN fruit salad basket. From your comments I would say that I might be seeing some more fruit salad sprinkled around some blogs in the future. :)

I have done some serious stashing this summer ... now if only I had the time to stitch all of these up in a hurry. (All pictures are clickable to enlarge.)

Lots of Prairie Schooler: love those Kris Kringles!


We Give Thanks by Blue Ribbon and Home of a Needleworker, Too by LHN.

And another piece that is 98% finished: My Beloved by Country Cottage Needleworks. Just a few more leaves to stitch.


As always, I appreciate YOU and our stitching community. You are all an inspiration. I have a very busy weekend ahead, so I probably won't be back until next week. See you then!
