Carin at Stitches by Carin nominated me for a blog award. I am honored to receive this award and love following all of the wonderful blogs out there. In accepting this award I must list 5 things you may not know about me and pass the award onto 5 deserving blogs. That's really hard to do because I love reading and catching up on all the blogs I follow so I will list the five I think you will enjoy.
First up 5 things about me: My favorite drink is Starbucks Black Ice Tea Unsweetened (How boring is that),
I graduated from Massachusetts College of Pharmacy and worked as a Pharmacist for 15 years before becoming a stay at home mom, I love to read ALOT and will read almost anything, I enjoy the drama of reality TV such as The Real Housewives of Orange County, Survivor and the Bachelor (really poor taste) and I would like to someday live in Portland Oregon. I love the West Coast and Oregon is my favorite place.
Now onto nominating 5 blogs
1. Vonna at The Twisted Stitcher, she has the most enjoyable blog to visit. It's full of fun info and her tutorials help with all of my finishing woes.
2.Mary Kathryn at ehandcrafts.com for her wonderful photos and sewing projects. If you haven't visited her blog it's a must. The photography speaks for itself.
3. Faye at Carolina Stitcher for her beautiful stitching. Everything she creates is gorgeous.
4. Natalie at A Stitch in Time for her beautiful blog. I love the look of her blog, it is soothing and enticing. She has so many wonderful projects she has finished and everything in lovely.
5. Myra at Gr8dame's Place. Not only is she a talented stitcher but her sewing is fantastic. She made the most adorable pumpkin pincushions and lovely owls.
There you have it! I believe all of the blogs I frequent are beautiful and deserve an award in their own right but I am trying to follow the rules associated with this award. Thank you all for visiting. I love all of the wonderful and encouraging comments I receive. Until Next Post, Happy Stitching!!!!!

Today was a beautifully sunny day and I spent time doing some tidying up. Once that was out of the way, I ironed and photographed some recent finishes. Finished stitching that is!! I am not quite sure what to do with them. I thought pillows or boxes, but maybe they should be frames?? So until I decide I thought I would share the stitching part. The first is Autumn in New York by Primrose Needleworks. I used the recoommended thread and stitched it on 36ct Sandcastle.
