Into The Light!

Would you believe that Sabrina is back? I FINALLY took her out of the dark and started stitching on her again -

Not much, I'm sorry but at least I'm working on her again :o) It feels like I never took a break. Maybe my lack of stitching mojo was because I just missed her. I love the sweep of her gown and I'm excited to put the trim on the bottom of it! Hopefully I will be contented once again.

Okay, has everyone been watching and drooling over the new releases from the St. Charles Market???? Have you SEEN these two lovelies -

Pumpkin Hollow Farm by LHN (photo 'borrowed' from her Blog). Ahhhhhh!!!!! I'm SO in love! Pumpkins, pumpkins everywhere!

Pumpkin Cottage by CCN (photo 'borrowed' from her Blog). O-M-G!!!! Does this have me written all over it or WHAT! I NEED! I WANT! Can't you see this one on my wall? :o)

WHY? WHY do designers have to do this to us???? Just when I think I'm good for another 100 years, out comes something delicious like these. Oye!

Please note: starting Monday morning, I am taking a week long break from Blogging. Wait! Don't worry, I'll be back the following Monday ;o) DH is 'finally' taking some time off so I want to spend that time with him. I just wanted you to know just in case you email me and I don't respond. When I return to Blogland, I'll catch up with everyone :o) It will probably take me a week. LOL!

Also, keep your eyes peeled for my Blogaversary coming up on September 27. You're not going to want to miss it :o)

Sabrina is beautiful...I saw a finished model in my LNS and she is quite a work of art. I know what you mean about the cruel designers--I am dying for a few of the new releases, but just took an "inventory"--56 + charts waiting to be stitched, booklets, magazines, and a baker's dozen of WIPS--UGH!
