Salem Remembered

I can't tell you how many drafts I have written these past months. I just never seemed to complete a one of them. So I am going to try to finish this one and share with you my newest finished piece.

I enjoyed stitching this piece so much. A tribute to those who were accused and killed for witchcraft. As much as I love the past and find it so interesting I thank God that we live in these times. It must have been awful back then.

Our area up here was hit very hard by Hurricane Irene. We have friends and neighbors that lost homes, farms, animals, vehicles and have so much damage. We were so very lucky, our road was washed out and we had to stay indoors for a few days but that was a small inconvenience compared to what others had to bear. Our school became a shelter for so many. School Opening was delayed because of all the road & bus damage. All of it was devastating but thank God we are alive and isn't that what matters most.

I have been stitching a few fun Fall things that I am putting together and will share in my next post, which I promise will be soon. In addition I am stitching a Christmas stocking for myself. I am using Lizzie Kates Angel stocking pattern that I have had forever and finally started. I need some Christmas cheer and its a happy stocking and a fun stitch so far. I think I should have made it much larger though. You know to make room for all them goodies that Santa undoubtedly will bring me. LOL LOL.

Have a happy Autumn Day

Beautiful finish, Sharon! We had damage from Irene as well. We were lucky, but the wallet was hard hit. Sounds like it was much worse up by you. I'm glad you were spared a lot of damage yourselves.

missed you around blog land Sharon - glad to see your post and your finish! Also glad you did not sustain a lot of damage from Irene - so much tragedy associated with TS Lee and Irene up in the NE.
Enjoy your fall stitching - Melody
