Saturday Stitching

Another week of little stitching being done but I did have a finish.

When we get back from Grimmwood I have some full finishing to get to! I did not add the fence as I hope to find a button Jackolantern to add to the piece. I saw one that Priscilla had used on a finish and now I need to hunt it down.

I also got a new Thanksgiving Waxing Moon....


I think I am doing the one that says Thankful.  I will do this one and Hoop La to add to my Thanksgiving stitches this year.

If you have not heard, Priscilla and Chelsea designed a free chart for their viewers. It is a Christmas ornament called Chicken Joy. I am going to stitch it for my tree at Grimmwood.  I still have quite a few Christmas ornaments to work on. While we are at Grimmwood I am working on ornaments, hoping to finish them soon.

I did get out some of my Halloween stitches once the floors were done.


I added this Prairie Schooler to the top of the kitchen hutch.


One of my favorites...I hung this on the wall over the grands candy basket.


My tea cart got some attention. I love that tin Jack that I purchased many years ago.


The Breakfast Bar....The white jack has lights inside that change color. He is very spooky!! The truck has a little jack in it that I found years ago as well. I just love that smile. I have seen that the Target trucks for this season have pumpkins in the back. Our Target is late in getting out the Halloween things that I have seen others post on You Tube.

These are all older stitches but maybe by next Saturday I will have my two new finishes to share. Happy Stitching...

Good Morning, Everything is gorgeous! I especially love the way you decorated your tea cart. We woke to clouds and a breeze to blow the dried up leaves off the trees!!! I don't think we'll have any color this fall. Enjoy your day.

As always, love seeing your work....the 'done' and 'soon to be done' ones. Have a blessed Sunday.

I finally got all caught up reading, we got to the beach right after you left! We're also about to have new floors put in and I was wondering if you can steam clean them and if you installed them on stairs?

Arlene @Nanaland said...

Angela...I have not steamed cleaned them but my installer said that just vinegar and water is best for cleaning them. I was surprised at how quickly they dried from damp mopping. Be sure and ask your installer about steaming. As they are tile I would think that is ok. We did not put it on stairs. We left carpet on the stairs and in the man cave. The carpet helps with the noise level so when we do replace it we will use carpet again. hope you had fun at Gulf Shores.

I have no idea how I missed this post. Sometimes I think google and blogger play tricks on me. Anyway, all of looks great. I know you are happy to have the floors done although as dry as it is you will probably be dusting for awhile. One of these days I am going to stitch the 'tis near Halloween piece. Never enough time.

Love your Halloween house, Arlene. Very colorful! And your Halloween decorations are so sweet. There are several of them that I would love to stitch, but I have been doing so much Halloween stitching that I'm running out of places to put it. ;-)

I caught a glimpse of your new floors in one of the photos, too. So pretty. I bought the E-cloth Deep Clean Mop from Grove.co and I LOVE IT. You just wet the map pad with hot water, squeeze it out and go to town. I'm tall and it adjusts for height so I don't have to stoop over. I use it with my Mrs. Meyer's all-purpose cleaner, and when I'm done, the kitchen smells so good. I can do my entire kitchen and dining room in less than 15 minutes. OK.... infomercial over now. Haha!

I always love seeing your stitching whether old or new, Arlene! Those PS Halloween pieces are such classics--they will never grow old in my eyes :) Your new chart is darling--can't wait to see Thankful all stitched up! Enjoy your week ♥

I didnt think of the carpet as a buffer, I'll have to rethink that one!We had a great time! We drive to another beach spot in Fort Morgan instead of right in front of our condo and it was perfect! Lulu's did cause me to gain about 15lbs!😂
