sooo where have I been... I've been here and there... just haven't had any mojo to blog... not just post on my own but to actually read any that I follow!

But that doesn't mean I haven't been busy!

I owe an ort report from August... not much stitching was going on for that month... a little but definitely not as much as normal for me.

However, I did crochet a bunch...I finished my first ever crochet blanket! 

Not sure what I'm going to do with it... keep it for myself or give it to someone for Christmas... we'll see...

I also started my second blanket, which will definitely be a Christmas gift for one of my great-nephews.

Now on to September!  here is my ort report for this month... just a little late - a few days... much better than last month! Also a much better looking ort jar!  I have many many more orts in it this time around!

I've been doing some stitching and even have a couple of happy dances to show!

First up is Moon Garden by Blackbird Designs...

Stitched on 32ct stone dark belfast linen by Nina's Threads, and the threads used are DMC 712 and Nina's threads in eggplant, lavender, green mold, and spring grass.
My other finish is Red Riding Hood by The Primitive Hare

stitched on 32ct pearl gray belfast linen with DMC and Anchor threads

I really enjoyed both pieces and am very happy they are done!

I also have a new wip to add to my pile of projects on the go...

It is flowers in red black and white (I believe that is the title) by Handblessings designs. I'm stitching with DMC black and 815 on 28ct ivory jobelan.  The stitches seem so huge after stitching on 32ct.

Your blanket looks fantastic. Red Riding Hood looks amazing! I love the fabric choice. It really makes the design pop.
