LMN is done. This is just one piece from Little House ABC Samplers. Enjoying these smaller pieces, and will probably make them in tiny pillows when they're done, to put them in a basket or tray. The snow and snowflakes are hard to see in the photo, but they're there!

Will probably get Grey back out now for a few days. I have loved doing a rotation type thing. If you get bored with one piece, you just go to the next. It's like starting a new one all over again!
Cross stitching isn't my only pleasure. I knit and crochet as well and enjoy both. Cross stitching just happens to be my favorite. Here's a picture of a purse I'm crocheting below, and a top that I'm knitting as well. Here is a picture of the purses that I'm making below. First one is in variegated green, and I'm using wooden handles. Very pretty.
I'm also knitting this lovely T below. Done in the same color as the photo.
I just enjoy needlework, and it is therapy to me. Clears my mind and relaxes me. I have a hard time, keeping my hands idle!
Oh! before I forget! I ran across this free chart for the sampler below. Isn't is pretty, and you choose the color or colors that you want. I was thinking, all in black except for the bee. Do him in light gold and black with pale grey wings.

I see that there is a disturbance in the pacific, coming off the coast of Africa. It's hurricane season so we'll be keeping an eye on it for the next few days. Though it's still hot and sticky here, it has been a little milder the last couple of days. A little more comfortable.
Well I must let you all go now. Hitting noon here in the eastern United States, and still want to get a salad done up for dinner. Bill loves my potato salad. You all take care. Stay well and love you all. Until next time, "Feel the Colors"!
