I don't have fireflies in my garden - which is a shame... only cats, bees, a dog and the odd dragonfly!! So please settle down with a cuppa, put your feet up and enjoy!

It's September and there is a new start!

September is here... how quick is this year going by?  I can't believe that we are now in the last quarter of the year!

The bonus for us in the Southern Hemisphere is that September means Spring is on it's way and I am so hanging out for some nice warm sunny weather!  I swear to you I think I must be solar powered as I don't do so well in Winter!!  I really do need the sun to give me the energy and spark to get through the day! 😺

Anyway enough rambling.... I thought that I would show you my September new start.  It is a really sweet Little House Needleworks design with pumpkins! So not very Spring like but there was a reason for starting it!

A couple of weeks or so ago I stumbled across a post on the CCN/LHN FB group about a potential SAL for the northern hemisphere Autumn months which I thought would be a great excuse for a new start!  Vonna (The Twisted Stitcher) started up a separate group for the SAL and showed some potential designs that would fall into the category and low and behold I had one in my stash - which meant that I just had to join the SAL!

My new start for this SAL is Little House Needleworks "Pumpkins 4 Sale"

I did have to purchase the Classic Colourworks threads but everything else is from stash....

Pumpkins 4 Sale - Little House Needleworks
Fabric: 28ct Jobelan "Silver Springs" Colour Cascade Fabrics
Threads: as per chart - DMC, Classic Colourworks (Crescent Colours)
Started: 1 September 2017 (start #52/2017)

I continued to stitch on my pumpkin on Saturday and almost managed to finish the first one!

This piece will be my Friday night stitching WIP for September... it would be nice to have a finish at the end of the month but I won't hold my breath!

So that's my latest new start... I have a couple more planned for September so stay tuned!

Til next time, happy Spring or Autumn Stitching
Stitchy hugs xx

Great new start Noni. I also joined the group but have to wait until my wrist heals to start it. This non stitching thing is driving me crazy.

That's a great new start. At the moment I'm also in the mood to start fall stitching with its wonderful colours. But I first have to finish another project. But my fall projects are ready to be started. Have fun with yours.

Great design and a nice start on it too.

Oooh, I actually have this one! It's all kitted up and ready to go, just not sure when it's "going"!
