October knocking at my door

GO AWAY!!!  Who will take it off my hands?  It's not my best work because of all the changes as I was working on the design so there may be mistakes I missed.  But if you would like it, please leave your initials since almost everyone is now no-reply, or name, in the comments on this post.  You can also email me, just click the top right column.  If more than one would like it, I will draw a name this Sunday the 18th at 8pm.
 
 
 
 
Yesterday was my sister's birthday, one that we didn't think she would reach.  Last year at this time it was horrible.  She had a very terrifying and upsetting year, and without Cleveland Clinic, would not have made it through.  Still slight improvement every month, and a very special birthday.  I will have to take a photo of her alongside her "new" car that she named Little Miss Sunshine.  She may be getting my new Escape and Miss Sunshine can return home to me.  Tomorrow I will have her for my Nona's risotto and make the chocolate chip chiffon that is our traditional family birthday cake.
 
Again, it's not the greatest little piece but if you would like it, leave your initials please.  The back is black with orange polka dots and it's a flat finish, not much padding.
 
 
 
Enjoy your weekend.
And vote for Lori!

Hi Marly,
Happy to hear that your sister is improving. I still chuckle when I remember your story of you almost launching her out of her wheelchair!! She is very lucky to have you (truly)! My best birthday wishes to her.

I think your 'October' piece is sweet. Looks perfect to me.

I enjoy your blog A LOT.. and you underestimate your talent so much. You stitch so quickly and make such nice finishes. I would love a chance to win this!

Where I live it is so miserably hot & humid, we don't see any relief in temperatures until at least Thanksgiving. :( So unlike you, I am counting down the days until winter lol.

Hi Marly,
I know you must be so thrilled to have a healthy sister this year.....certainly something to celebrate, especially after the terribly terrifying year you all had!!! Enjoy that special cake and wish her a Happy Birthday for me!
Your October piece is wonderful.....just like all the other ones, but since I won that beautiful stitched heart, I will pass to give someone else a chance to own one of your lovely pieces!!!
Hope you have a wonderful week!

Happy Birthday to Carole. I'm so happy that she is gradually doing better. Love the "Little Miss Sunshine".. Would be nice for you have her back.. Your birthday dinner sounds scrumptious.
I hope your kitty situation is getting better.. We have a skunk situation somewhere in our yard or very close by. Am afraid to go into any of the sheds in our yard.
I would soooo enjoy winning your new October stitches..
Have an enjoyable weekend.

I remember what a tough time Carole was having last year, Marly. I'm so glad she is able to celebrate another birthday (and a new car!) with you again this year. The treats you are making sound delicious.

Your crow finish is darling--no need to enter me as it is definitely something I will stitch for myself some day. Thank you again for designing such a cute chart :)

Wishing Carole a very ♫♪♫ HAPPY BIRTHDAY♫♪♫
