I'm back...

Finally I'm back.
I've not been writing for about a month.
September finished and it was a very sad month. This is why I didn't feel writing posts.
We were in mourning. Lore's father in law suddendly passed away and he left his wife, Lore's sister, and two children. It was a great loss to our family and we were really busy with a lot of things.
I would like to apologize for not taking part in your blogs with posts and not sending what I had to send.
A new month arrived and it's time to speak again about cross stitch and goals.

My September goals were:
- stitch August and September Flip-It by LK no!

- stitch the monthly Christmas ornament no!

- finish The bookshelf YES!!

- finish Daisy Lane Cottage YES!!

- stitch a block of Terre de France no!

- start a pattern by Sisters and Best Friends as a SAL with some Italian friends YES!!

- work on Quaker Garden no...

Here are the October's goals:

- stitch August, September and October Flip-It by LK
- stitch the monthly Christmas ornament and the September one
- stitch a block of Terre de France
- work on the pattern by Sisters and Best Friends started as a SAL with some Italian friends
- work on Quaker Garden
- finish a charity pattern I started last month
- work on Merry Christmas by Brightneedle (SAL with some French ladies)

- finish the curtains for my kitchen (I worked on them during September and I'm pretty happy about the results)

Now we can see the pictures of my progresses during the past month.

I started Winter Peace, a pattern by Sisters and Best Friends that I'm stitching as a SAL with some Italian friends.

Yesterday I started stitching the Pear Tree Inn by Little House Needleworks as autumnal SAL with the ladies of the LHN group.

I started a charity pattern to take part in a project for Love Quilt America.

I worked on the August Flip-It by Lizzie Kate.

I finished The Bookshelf by LHN.

Stitched on Lugana 32ct, Hazelnut, Silkweaver.

And I finished the Daisy Lane Cottage by LHN.

Bea mi dispiace che è morto il cognato di Lore, sicuramente era giovane conoscendo quanto siete giovani voi! Felice di rileggerti online.
Comunque cognato in inglese è Brother-in-Law perchè il father-in-law è il suocero!
