QUILTS AND AFGHANS......

Ginny over at Small Things hosts Yarn Along.  Don't know what this is?  Here's some info from Ginny.

 Two of my favorite things are knitting and reading and I love sharing my projects and current reads here. I would love for you to join me every Wednesday to share a single photo of what you are knitting (or crocheting) and reading too!

Since it turned chilly this week I got my At The Beach Afghan and worked on it.  It's coming along pretty nicely.
As for what I'm reading, It Happened One Autumn by Lisa Kleypas.  It's a Historical Romance, I love reading this kind of book.  I've been reading a lot of suspense mystery's and wanted a break from those, so I picked this one up at the library.   I also love the cover of this book.  I've linked it to the page at Amazon.com if you want to check it out.
Sharon over at Pintangle is the host for Take A Stitch Tuesday.  She gives you instructions on how to do a multitude of Embroidery Stitches.

  The stitch this week is Wheateater Stitch.  A little info on this block.  The flower came off one of Bella's pony tail bands and I kept it, thinking I could use it for something or other.  So I put it on my block and added a bead to the center.  Then I couched down some yarn to make some grasses and added some Wheateater Stitches.  I'll be putting a few more of those stitches in this area.
