Where has the time gone?

Well, I finally had a moment to retake a picture of my September Crazy quilt square and try to post. I hope you can see the spider I placed on my web. He was fun to stitch. I also finished a beaded lizard from Jill Oxton's Cross Stitch& Beading magazine (issue 68), but I forgot to take a picture of him before I loaned him to the library. He was supposed to go on the quilt square, but he looked too big. I can always add him later.
These next two pictures are of Sam's beaded box. We took the class through the Mississippi River Valley Guild of EGA. The design is by Carolyn Sherman and called Wildflower Box. Sam plans to show it at our local homeschool art show this month and I hope to enter it in the fair for him. He did a great job, and I am very proud of him. We will not discuss my box or the lack of progress I have made on it. Top view of Sam's box.

I have finally finished Part I of Gay Ann's Mystery in a Corner. I will try to post a picture soon. I also decided to take the plunge and try to finish my North Wind Santa ornament myself. Big mistake. Once it is totally done, I will show you why I pay big bucks for a finisher. Yes, I know Jane of Chilly Hollow can do it and so can NCPat...in fact, they encouraged me to try! (Not knowingly, I assure you.) But I am not sure that I will attempt it again.
And don't forget Gay Ann Roger's is having a sale starting October 15!!!

Hi Beth,

Love Sam's box!

I'm also enjoying seeing your progess on your Crazy Quilt square.

Are you in an exchange or are you just doing these for yourself?
