IHSW and catching up

First off this weekend is IHSW and I plan to do a lot. It has been a crazy 2 weeks at work and I need to veg all weekend. Supposed to be cool this weekend, can you say Autumn? My favorite time of year.

I know that I haven't been on here lately. So let's back up and see... oh yeah I finished page 2 of Aurora's Garden
Next rotation I will finish her.

Sept. 2 DH and I went to the NY State Festival of Balloons in Dansville, NY. They also had a car show that day. I love the muscle cars and will show you a couple pics and since you know what hot air balloons look like then I will post pics of the unique ones.

I have also been stash shopping. I know, I said no more charts til I finish everything that I have started. But who can resist HAEDs and trying to support them this week.
So the past few weeks I have ordered 3-4 pieces of Picture This Plus fabric for some charts in the JCS Halloween issue. Then I ordered a years subscription to Stoney Creek Magazine. I received the JCS Christmas Ornament issue. So for HAED I have ordered and received Boo from Randall Spangler during the Labor Day sale. I am starting that January 1 with a few other stitchers. Then yesterday for HAED appreciation week I ordered:
Hannah Lynn

Sea Star

Faces of HAED:
Faces Rae
Faces of Faery 135
Faces of Faery 88

I pulled out S is For Stitcher from a Cross Country stitching magazine. I started it a few years ago and will post a pic on Sunday night.

My manager was out on Medical leave from Sept 4 - Sept. 12. She came back yesterday. We were very busy while she was gone and when she is gone then I am in charge. So more hours and very tired when I got home. Busy season has hit us hard and way more work than 3 people can handle. But my paycheck is nice :-)

Have a great IHSW!!

Nice progress on AG.

Looks like I wasn't the only one stashing this week, lol.

The autumn weather is a welcome change from the summer we've had. That's for sure!
