All Quiet On The Stitching Front.....

Haven't picked up the needle to stitch since late September. 

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:

"Whooo's Knockin' at My Door?
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.
