Happy Monday! Another new week is here!
I have been working on a couple projects, a Christmas ornament which will have to stay a secret, and a new sampler, SM 1678, an old German sampler. I fell in love with all the flowers in this one....

It is from European Reproduction Samplers, the complete design can be seen here.
The autumn leaves are starting to turn here in Connecticut... although still more in the yellow-orange color, I think it will be another couple weeks till it will be fiery, orangey-red!
This past weekend, I took a ride through Northwest Connecticut to see the beautiful colors, driving thru Kent and up to Cornwall. Here are a few snaps I took along the way.....
There were some great covered bridges, which always remind me of 'Bridges of Madison County'
|Bull's Bridge, Kent CT|
I stopped at beautiful Kent Falls State Park....

I loved this statue in a playground in the village of Kent, this crow looks perplexed! lol!
Also during the weekend, I drove over to Hartford for the Stitches East Convention to check out the marketplace. With a name like Stitches East, I figured there would be cross stitching, however, it was mainly yarn for knitting and crochet lovers..... more beautiful yarns than I could have ever imagined!!

But I was super lucky to find the ONE!! cross stitch booth!! :D
It was Scandinavian Stitches and they specialize in patterns/charts using danish flower thread.
I found a cute holiday kit of a German village.
And I also could not resist some of the gorgeous yarn, this is to make a VERY simple cowl scarf.
So needless to say, I am all pooped out!
Here is my Tusal for the new moon this evening, starting to finally fill up!
