Today is a very cold and rainy October day.  I can hear the torrents of rain beating down on the roof.  Brrrrrr!
I can't seem to get warm, so donned one of my favorite warm knitted pair of slacks and a sweater, but still feel chilled to the bone.  Time to make a fresh pot of tea!

Yes, I am still lingering on finishing Jenny Bean, but I do have a good excuse for lagging behind.  I had a nasty illness last week and was on antibiotics.  I was just so exhausted and every time I picked up my needle to stitch, I would fall asleep and wake up still holding my needle!  It was a good effort, but needless to say, did not produce great results.  
This week I received this wonderful set of designs from June (   How kind of you, June to send them to me!  I can't wait to stitch one of them very soon!  These are such delightful French designs by Dany (

With my spirits bolstered, I resolved to start "My Lovely Stitching Tools" mystery sampler, from the Gift of Stitching.  I am stitching this as a SAL, with Jo and Clare, which is already a lot of fun.  Not a lot of progress this week, but it is a start!
