WHAT HAPPENED LAST WEEK?

I have no idea. I think a fire was lit under me.  I got so much accomplished in stitching. I really think it was the rain. The Weather Channel on the 10th said, in the month of August, Alabama had 10 days of rain. Yep... Every day so far it has rained.
I did get some things finished for show and tell.

 I finished stitching The Primitive Needle - Hornbook Angel. I stitched it with the called for hand dyed threads. I can't remember the name of the linen. It is 40 count.  I'm thinking Days Gone By is the linen name. I may be wrong.

 I had finished stitching this Freebie by La D Da a while back. I just now framed it. I have it hanging in my living room.

 I started and finished punching this cat by Lori of Notforgotten Farms. It did not take me long. Of course, we were watching Dark Shadows and I was punching away... It will go on top of a painted box. I'm working on the box today.

 I pulled out the Auburn Fabric today. I need to get to sewing the dress together for Zoe. Football will be going on before we know it!

 I did a purchase at Hobby Lobby this week. Orange burlap and Navy Blue Chevron. I have them sitting together in the rocker to make..

THIS!  I have to contact Dear SIL for her embroidery skills..  But I have all the supplies. This will not be for me. I'm a die hard Alabama Fan! I hope to have The Pruitt Name and maybe have year of est. I got a dowel, so that they can hang it on the front door. As I said, I have to get with the Best SIL in the world.. Can you tell, I'm buttering her up as I type!  lol
I want to thank everyone for the wonderful comments on my BBD Halloween Box! I really enjoyed stitching and putting that one together.
I guess that is what happened to last week. Boy, was I busy.  lol
Till later....

I love your stitching! My dear kids moved away(now living in Alabama) from the Pacific NW because they said it rained too much. We have had no measurable rain since June!
