Indeed it is! The weather might not believe that just yet (25+ degree days still... very unusual for this time of year), but judging by all the fallish goodies that are making an appearance in the stores these days Fall can't be very far around the corner. However, I don't think Costco got this memo... seeing as they skipped past fall right into Christmas it seems haha. Typical!

Well I personally refuse to think about Winter just yet! I love fall too much to even think about snow before the month of November. I love the colours, sights and smells of Fall. Tree leaves turning red and yellow, the smell of frost as you step out the door in the morning, burning wood in woodstoves, ohhhhh and the food. It is my favourite season for sure. 

Feeding my fall kick I've got a couple of fall themed charts lined up and have started Lizzie Kate's Mystery Sampler... I've been merrily stitching away since receiving my fabric a couple of weeks ago (finally) which was followed just a couple of days later with the second instalment of the series making an appearance in the mail box. All I can say is YEY! Loving every stitch :) 

See! I have not been idle since my last update on August 11 (btw...yikes!).

I also received this lovely package from my exchange partner last week from my seasonal exchange! Her name escapes me for the moment however - will have to make an edit for this when I get home today. Anyway, I simply cannot wait any longer to post a pic to show you all the lovely orni she created! It smelled so wonderfully of lavender when I opened the envelope. Apparently this was because she had put lavender buds from her garden into ornament! The smell was to die for. So a BIG THANK YOU to my exchange partner :) [EDIT: Who is LYNN from Ok Stitching News That Counts!!!! Thank you Thank you Thank you!!!]

And here is you complementary picture of Leia. Just a touch nappy ;)

Well my darlings,

That's all from me today!

Happy Stitching,

Hello Folks!

Long time no see?!?! I've been a little MIA over the last couple of weeks haven't I? Shame on me, life just gets in the way sometimes I guess.

It has been unbearably hot here for the past couple weeks... lots of humidity... high temps... I shouldn't complain but I can't help it. When it is too humid to sleep, well that just makes me cranky. Beyond that, not much to report! My summer has been flying!

I have managed to complete the June wordplay I was working on over the past couple of weeks this morning in fact. I love the way it turned out I have to say. When I get around to turning it into something I'll post another pic :)

Isn't she sweet! Leia is probably the most easy going dog I've ever seen and always has her nose sniffing. I don't think she quite knows that to make of my cross stitch from the looks of the picture I think. Haha. 

The last time I posted I remarked on the blueberries that were growing in about the house. They were abundant then and they're still pumping out the largest blue berries I have ever seen in Newfoundland. Well we've made lots of muffins and pies at this point. When looking for something to bring to a party tonight the BF thought it would be an excellent idea to make a Blueberry Crumble out of the berries we picked a couple of days ago. Here's the final product:

Boy! Do I ever have a great BF :)

Now that I've got your mouth watering I'll say goodbye for today.

Hope everyone is having a fantastic weekend!
