Great Trip to New England preview

 The motor coach  and 44 travelers travelled over 3,700 miles.  We saw some amazing sights, so I thought I would show you some of them.  The fall colors were beautiful, and oh my, what a magnificent sight Niagara Falls is.  I can mark off one more bucket list item after seeing the Falls.  Here's a few of the places we visited: 

Quechee Gorge, VT

The Paul Revere House, Boston

U.S. side of Niagara Falls

I'm currently working on my trip album.  As soon as I get the photos cropped and organized, I'll let you know.  It was a trip I'll never forget.

HoE Autumn exchange from Michelle B.

Just look what the postman delivered to my door.  Michelle B. (Arthemise) was my stitching partner for the Autumn Exchange on HoE.  She is a flawless stitcher.  You know how I like biscornus and autumn colors.  I just love it.  Thank you so much Michelle.

Hoe Halloween Exchange From Janet

This wonderful exchange was waiting for me when I got home today.  It's from Janet B.  Aren't the stitched pieces so cute.  They are tiny, and you know how I love the tinys.  The pieces are from "Creepy Crawly" by Blue Ribbon Designs.  She used 32ct. Platinum Belfast and GAST threads.  The goodies she included are so great too.  The colors of the threads are: Cauldron, Embers, and Frog Legs! Aren't the little pins just too cute?  I love the fabric too.

Thank you so much Janet.  A great exchange from a great gal.
The card that Janet included in the exchange has a photo of a bloom from some seeds I sent with an earlier exchange I stitched for her.

What a send off for my bus trip!!  Can you believe?  Two posts from me on the same day!!

Latest Exchange Finish

Gee it's been a long time since I last posted.  My part-time job and a bout of allergy eyes have limited my stitching.  I did manage to complete my HoE Halloween exchange and get it mailed.  Here's what I stitched.  It's the October Primitive Floss Tag from The Needle's Content.  I used the recommended fibers and a 32ct fabric.  I love these floss tags and have stitched several of them.  Also included in the exchange was a Halloween scissor fob from Monique of My Mark.  Monique designs some really fabulous scissor fobs. I don't think my partner reads my blog, so I'm posting it now.

I leave tomorrow on my nine day New England bus trip.  I'm really looking forward to it, especially seeing Niagara Falls, Vermont, and New Hampshire.   The weather doesn't look too promising, however.  The extended forecast call for rain.  "Oh well", as my good friend likes to say, I've been rained on before, and I do dry out!

See ya when I return.
