Happy Fall, all you in the Northern Hemisphere! And Happy Spring to all you in the South! Here in Arizona we have enjoyed a cooler, rainy week! In September we are usually still experiencing the last blasts of summer (100 plus degrees) but this week kicked off with huge thunderstorms and rain, resulting in overcast days and cooler temps in the 80s and 90s which was quite refreshing! I always enjoy cloudy days because they are so restful on the eyes after weeks of sunshine!
Now that you’ve had your weather report, it’s time for the September Smalls Check In!
As promised, I finished the Garden Urn Pinkeep by Samplers Not Forgotten. I did change the bird’s breast color to golden (it was supposed to be blue) and did the satin stitch stars with 2 threads instead of one to get better coverage. Those stars really give this design something special.
This was a kit, and it came with some nice buttons, fabric and a wool heart to make the pillow. I will make that up next week and share for the FFO Gallery check in.
Now it’s your turn! What have you been working on this month?

Very pretty finish Mary. I love the 2 strands on the satin star.
ooOoo! This is such a pretty one!
Very nice! I agree, the stars are special.
So delicate, and seeing as it came with all the FFO goodies you have no excuse to leave it lying around unfinished! 🙂
Beautiful finish. All linked up finally. We’ve been having a blast of heat here in Indiana. Supposed to break records until Thursday and then it’s going to cool down. Can’t wait for the cooler temps.
I love the way the satin stitch stars turned out using the thread and the beautiful little pink centres,
