I was able to finish my SAL page for July today.  I did quilting/patchwork and wool embroidery for this month.  We are now officially halfway with our SAL and if you haven't taken a look at all the beautiful work, I highly recommend checking it out.  These ladies are absolute miracle workers with a needle and I am so please to have them in my little SAL.


I also was able to finish the Bent Creek Pumpkin Flower Sampler today.  I'm not sure if I listed the fibers I used so here they are:
Valdani Olive Green
Gloriana Honey Bronze
Florimell Fallen Leaves
DMC floss
This was a fun stitch and I have to admit, it's been so long since I made one of these, I really had to take my time because I'm out of practice.  
I'm thinking about doing one of my old patterns that I've had around for years.  I'm not sure if you are familiar with the design company Faces, but they did a series of  Barbara Bourgeau Richards paintings and made them into cross stitch patterns.  I have several of hers and I just have to make up my mind which one to do.  If you are not familiar with these, you can check them out here.
