Welcome to the Prairie Schooler SAL blog. This is a blog to celebrate our stitching of the wonderful designs from the lovely ladies of Prairie Schooler. Pamela and Nancy are retiring to take a well deserved break after 32 years of giving us cross stitchers the most wonderful designs and so much pleasure. The rules of the blog are simple: post a progress pic or a finish whenever you like, as long as it is a Prairie Schooler Design.

A small finish and a new start
Happy Autumn, everyone (well, at least to those of you in the Northern Hemisphere)! Things have turned a bit cooler here, but, what a gorgeous September we've had. In keeping with the season, I have a couple of fall-themed pieces to share with you today.
The first is simply called "Autumn" and is from an old Just Cross Stitch magazine. I stitched it over one on 28 ct. black Monaco using the suggested DMC threads.
To finish it off, I simply "framed" it with some rust colored ric-rak and used the acorn strewn fabric as the backing.
My second PS piece is a larger sampler from the Band Samplers book (no. 42). I just loved the saying on it "Tall trees from little acorns grow." I hope to have it completed soon, but here is a peak at my progress so far. If you would like any more information on these, I just posted about them on my blog, Stitching Dreams, this morning.
Wishing you each a pleasant day--hope it includes some stitching time! Carol
