Needlepoint and quilt top half finished

I finally finished the filling stitches around the diamonds for Diamond Delight, so now it will be on to the outer triangles.

I've also pieced the top half of CC's new flannel plaid quilt - a month to get to this point, I have no idea how I pieced and quilted his first one so quickly!

Seasonal cross stitching

Over the past few weeks I've been working on a few cross stitch projects that are seasonal-apropos. Autumn Fairy has gotten a little more attention - I haven't completely finished Part 3, but it is 2/3 complete. Here are 2 of the six ornaments that include over-1 stitching and then a progress pic of the part 4 motif.

Getting close to Halloween always makes me want to stitch on a Halloween-y project, and what's better than Spooky House?

And I've finally started on a third letter (L is for Leaves) for the Prairie Schooler ABC Quilt. At the rate I'm going, it will take me 26 years to complete, ha! Oh well, it's more about enjoying the process sometimes than the product (though I do enjoy that too, when it's complete).

CC's Flannel Plaid Quilt progress

After spending some more time working on it, CC's new quilt top is nearly halfway pieced. Wishing that the weekend was longer so I could have more time to work on it... :)
