Sarah's House and some fall goodness.....

Hello all....
 
It sure is good to see so many folks gearing up for the fall season stitching! And, how about some of the new designs just coming out???? Oh my goodness!!! I know my heart skipped a beat when I laid my eyes on  The Scarlett House's newest goodies... lookie here... and how about Plum Street Samplers newest designs... shown here....my mental list goes on and on.....
 
I have been finishing quite a bit here lately ...if you'd like take a gander, you can visit Edgar's blog  and Andrea's blog  just to name a couple....  I love the finish work.... so, thanks again for those of you trusting me with your gorgeous handiwork.....
 
I have had a chance to give Sarah's House a proper construction.... I love stitching samplers that I know young school girls stitched... Plus the color palette of this particular design just kind of "spoke" to me....
 
Sarah's House
Blackbird Designs
36 count Abeccedarian Linen
Cotton overdyes
 
 

(hmmmmmm...please excuse the string that I somehow missed seeing before photoing...sheesh.....)
 
 
And, I dressed up my breakfast room table with a few goodies to display in my dough bowl...
 
I just love the fall season....don't you???
 
 

 
I have always loved this Stacy Nash design called "Pears and Strawberries Sampler"...found here..
It was actually intended to be a sewing bag, but I wanted a table scarf....  The colors make me smell apple cider on stove right now!!
 
Well, its late for this ole teacher....Tomorrow is our last day with the children for three weeks.... So, me and my kitted up ornaments will be heading to Cherry Grove for a short while... still sewing and finishing of course....just a little further south.....
 
Here's hoping you all have a fantastic week!!!
 
 
 
Faye

Good googly, girlfriend! You've been so busy - and beautifully, as always. Love all you finished. Hope you're having a fine fall at the coast. We'll see you there in just about three weeks!! Woo Hoo!!

Lynn said...

Sarah's House is a lovely stitch. You stitched it up so quickly too.
I am in love with your display of fall stitches in your dough bowl. I have been trying to find a similar bowl for some time now without any luck.
Hope you're enjoying your break!

Heidi Kuijer said...

Hi Faye! Thank you so much for your comment on my home and garden blog. I love using my handmade items to decorate with and find mixing stitching with my quilts give it all a personal touch.

What beautiful finishing you do. But also beautiful stitching for yourself. I was drooling over your dough bowl. First, I love the shape of the bowl. I have two but this one of yours is so wide. You will see mine in the days to come on my blog. Then all the wonderful autumn and Halloween pillows. I want to do this for both autumn and Christmas but never seem to get around to it. I only have one Christmas pillow made last year...sigh. Your bowl brightens your breakfast table!

Hugs from Holland ~
Heidi
