Hello again everyone!
As I drove home last night, the huge Harvest Moon loomed over the end of the main road near my house, low and huge in the sky. I swear the Harvest Moon always seems to be the biggest one of the year, and this year’s was just as glorious as years past. As a kid, I called it the “Star Wars Moon,” (since the Death Star was such an iconic part of my childhood). I wonder what nickname my little guy will come up with for it!
It’s been another fantastic month of stitching for me – slowly but surely I’m making progress on Blue Ribbon Designs’ “Blue Jeans and Daisies.” I’m on the last smaller square before moving to the center panel, and it’s looking like I will be able to celebrate a finish on this piece sometime this autumn. (three finishes in one year? Might be a record for me!)
As Max gets older, I’m really wanting to get myself back in gear with some sort of a rotation once again. There are so many pieces I want to stitch, but I do need some sort of organization to help me push forward a little at times. I’m going to finish Blue Jeans and Daisies, then sit down and figure it out. I think part of my issue right now is that I have so many lingering pieces from before Max was born, and so many new starts I want to do… so I need to find balance.
Question of the Month
Tell us a story about the journey you took through one of your completed pieces.
It’s a beautiful Saturday out there, and my husband is finally done with his overtime work for the day. We’re off to enjoy a beautiful final summer Saturday as a family, and then come home to a good chilly evening that will be good for stitching while curled up under a quilt on the couch.
I hope you’re having a great weekend, too!

Topic for next time: What online stitching communities do you enjoy?
Please remember that this stitch-a-long is intended to be fun – so if you’re too busy to post, too busy/ill/etc. to stitch – no worries. Post when you can and share what you have going, even if you’ve only been able to toss a single stitch into it. If you miss a few months, not a problem – just jump back in when you’re back with us! It’s not a race or a competition – we’re all just here to cheer each other on with our progress.
Due to different browsing software, some bloggers have found it difficult to check-in with their posts. There are three different ways to check in:
- Via Auto-link
- Via comments (make sure you include your blog address!)
- Via email – to measiwitch(at)gmail.com, only if the other two options are not working. Again- make sure you include your blog address! I’ll add it to the auto-link myself when I have a free moment.
