Suddenly it is September............

 


and although summer is almost at an end, the flowers 
are still vibrant, especially the morning glory 
and the wild aster.
Here the morning glory is just beginning to bloom at it's best
and the wild prairie aster grows and blooms in large clumps all 
along the garden fence. 
When I came upon the design in the first photo, I knew
it was perfect to embroider.  I also tinted it
to make it look more vibrant. This is a month by month design..........
I acquired years ago.......but can't remember from where.
I hope to embroidered each month starting with September.
Fittingly, this piece I just finished  is titled.....
"The Last Rose of Summer" 
This is a little motif design from Blackbird Designs
and  it seems to match my little rose bush blooming 
it's last blooms until the days grow cold. 
Fall is almost here and I am sure many of you are working
on projects that have pumpkins........maybe Halloween themed
designs on them?  I would love to hear!

Oh I love how your stitching matches the garden~

Your flowers are so very pretty; both the flowers in your garden as well as the flowers you stitch with needle and thread.

Your stitching is always so beautiful. The morning glories are really lovely. It's time to start planting here. Winter is the best time of year in the desert. Take care. Happy September!

So beautiful! I love the perfect stitches you make! How I wish I could do that! So odd-last night I had a dream about stitching designs on cloth. In my dream it was called 'crewelwork' but I know in reality what I saw doesn't match up with that. So odd-I've never had a dream like that!

I am indeed working on a new cross stitch pattern with crows and squirrels. I keep changing it as I go. The morning glories -- aren't they incredible?
