Winter Louie

Good morning and welcome to another wonderful Wednesday.
We're half way through September already where has this month gone?  It only feels like yesterday that it was Christmas and now another Christmas is just around the corner about 98 days to go.
Thank you for all your wonderful comments this week and welcome to my new follower Darcy Schroeder.

Today is Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2, congratulations to our winner last week and to our Top 3 cards well done everyone.

 This week Sally has another great sketch to work with and again it's very quick and easy and looks great finished.

Today I thought I would share a piece of Cross Stitch that I've been working on and had it framed last week.  As you can see it's a Christmas piece and looks stunning finished I'm so happy with it and it was stitched on cream linen  which was an 18 count cloth.  I'm currently working on another Christmas piece that being stitched on cream 14 count Aida Cloth.    I also have another piece at the picture framers at present so I'll also share that with you once I get it back.

Kathie, your card is adorable. Love that little bear. Boy you are getting some warm temps. We are having days in the 60's, but in the night it is getting down in the 40's. Hopefully it will cause the leaves to turn beautiful colors soon. Stay cool, and have a wonderful week. I am having a party at my Mother's this Saturday for my son who will be leaving on October 14th for the Army Reserves and it happens to be my daughter's 22nd birthday.
