Making Progress

It's that time again…Gifted Gorgeousness update.

Here is last  months progress picture:


And here is the progress that I made to date:

2015 Gifted Gorgeousness ~ September 15
Designer: Carriage House Samplings
Fabric: 40 count Linen over two
Floss: DMC

It was a beautiful Labor Day weekend and having DS1/DIL + DS2/GF join us made it even better.  My younger son has a passion for Jet Skiing.  He much prefers the "stand up" jet ski and enjoys getting airborne on it.  Honestly, he makes riding a "stand up" look effortless but it isn't.


Here is his GF, who did a great job buzzing around the lake.  She has experience riding a stand up.




DS1/DIL had to head back to NYC on Monday so they missed out on the Jet Ski fun.

Thank you to those of you who so kindly let me know that this is a Lily, an Oriental Lily, called Stargazer…

And that this is a Hibiscus…


I also learned, from my DS GF, that the pretty white flowers that I cut from the yard and popped into a vase are Hydrangeas.  We have two large bushes just bursting with these beauties !!!

Another gorgeous giveaway by Nancy at Victorian Motto Sampler Shoppe, check it out. She is truly one of the most generous people, constantly offering her beautiful floss to her readers! Honestly, her floss tops my list of favorites. I have been purchasing it for years.

Wow, that's a LOT of progress!
The jet-skiing looks like fun.
Glad you have gotten your flowers identified.
They are all so pretty.

What a lovely family you have! Sounds like your Labor Day was chock full of fun! Beautiful stitching, I've looked at that pattern many times and have quite a few of her patterns. Your flowers are beautiful! I especially love hibiscus!

Thanks for taking part in GG this month. You really did do plenty of brick laying in your house!
The water sports look like fun too but I would be watching, not joining in LOL

Amazing progress Marie! Congrats!

It's always so nice when our sons visit, isn't it, Marie? We had all three boys home last weekend--now the youngest is far, far away in Argentina :(

Love your progress on Black Horse Inn--that is one massive house. The little horses are so cute and I love the way the clouds are charted--looks like a fun piece to stitch!

You made some great progress on your project. This filling-in-stitching isn't the most exciting part on a project, is it? But when it's done it looks do great.
Great pictures from your Labor Day weekend.
