Gram was very wise. We hurry, hurry through life and before we know it we are in our 40's, in our 50's, ... our children grow up and start making a life of their own.
Not sure why I'm feeling melancholy about this today. But at times I find myself hoping I did enjoy all the "todays" along the way. As I get older, I want to put the brakes on a little and hope the future "todays" come around at a bit slower pace. And I sure hope I didn't spend too much time wishing my life away!
So I have slowed things down a little (although I still don't know where September got off too!)and have indulged in quite a bit of stitching time. As a result I'm making pretty good progress on MARION ROBERTSON which I am stitching as part of Nicola's Scarlet Letter Year.

40 ct. Sandstone linen from Scarlet Letter
AVAS as charted
Miss Marion has been fun to stitch, but my "Must Stitch" list is growing, and I hope to get her finished soon so I can move on to the next adventure ... we'll see how it goes!
Hope you all are enjoying some stitching time as well. I love browsing the blogs every week to see what everyone is working on!
Until next time ...
