We took our annual weekend getaway to Asheville in September (celebrating our silver anniversary--25years!) and that called for a new little stitchery. I had recently purchased Blackbird Designs "Tis Hallowe'en". Thirteen stockings and projects of stitchy goodness. Here's what I did back in Sept and how it still looks today:

Blackbird Designs "Tis Halloween" booklet
30ct Cafe Kona
called for dyed threads
Didn't get very far. Best intentions and all that.
Few pictures of the weekend trip:
Spent time relaxing at the Biltmore Inn each day.
Lots of stitching in their comfortable sofas and chairs by the windows in the library; taking in some wonderful views of the mountains. Here I am waiting for hubs before taking tea. :)
The big house. Look at that sky! Couldn't have asked for a more perfect day.
Mums all set out.
Took in a bit downtown Asheville. The morning was cloudy and quite misty which...
...made it a great morning for coffee and pastry at the City Bakery Cafe.
Had great weather to enjoy dinner outside one night.
It was a little too early to enjoy fall in it's colorful splendor but the weather was great and we had wonderful and relaxing time. Look forward to doing it again next year.
