Theme-a-licious August/September

Well, if I were an author, I'm afraid that I would barely have managed a short story this month!

I did some work on Spring Garden Gate, finishing the knotted stitch and another piece of the verse.

Here's a closeup of the knotted stitch:
Pretty cool, isn't it? It's not difficult; the only tricky part is maintaining an even tension.

Although I didn't get too much actual stitching done, I did finally graph out the verse for Castles by the Sea!

Now let's talk about THIS month, which is...

Supersize September
Dip your needle into the vast swath of fabric dedicated to your BIGGEST projects!

Les Rubans needs some work for sure, and it's definitely my biggest project. I'll probably pull out Autumn Queen as's been a while since I've worked on it.

So how was Author! Author! August? Hopefully you "wrote" more than I did? What will you tackle for Supersize September? Please add your link below (to your latest Theme-a-licious post), and visit some other Themers if you can (everyone loves comments and encouragement!) Our next post will be on October 1st. Around the middle of the month, I'll announce the theme for October!

Lovely stitching to the theme this month.

You'll like my post, not so much of a shoe-horn this month, more of a glass slipper?

Lovely stitching Heather.

Your Spring Garden Gate looks lovely, and that knotted stitch is very interesting.

That knotted stitch looks awesome!
Can't wait to see your progress on Autumn Queen this month.
BTW, I noticed Nathan in the top corner of your blog title... hubby was in Toronto this weekend and got to see him speak. He has gone twice and both times has waited in line to see him and just loved him :)
