Ahhh.... Its finally Fall.....

Although we are still having somewhat of an "Indian summer" here in the Carolinas, I long for the soon to be cool days.... Its coming.... I just know it is.....
 
I've been a busy lady here of late.... I had time to either stitch, or post. As you can see from the lack of posts, I chose to stitch.....Are you like that sometimes????
 
My most recent LOVE was this stitched up piece which will soon become a crushed walnut shell filled, chenille embellished pin pillow....
 
I absolutely loved this stitch!!!
Coverlet Houses
The Scarlett House
40 ct LL light vintage exemplar
specified npi threads
 
 
 
And, I have gotton carried away a little bit with ornament stitching.....When the Just Cross Stitch ornament issue hit my hot little hands, I went to kitting up like a crazy woman..... And, I had a few others kitted up as well....So, I figured, Why not crank out a few ornies....
 
Here's my collection so far...........
 
Most of these are in the JCS magazine....see if you can tell which designers "spoke" to me first....
 
So, I leave you today with good wishes, a "Terrific Tuesday"...and of course, lots of stitching!!!
I guess I'm a little happy today....Its finally my birthday month~~~
Oh, hello from my
B4LF (Best 4 legged friend...)
 
The Princess....Ms. Truffles....
 
Peace,
 
Faye

Natasha said...

You go girl!! You are really cranking out the ornaments!! I look forward to seeing what you will do with The Scarlete House finish.

We have had a heat way the last few days, very rare for us here in the bay area. Today is another day in the 90's hope I don't melt away LOL

Take Care friend!

Siobhán said...

Awww, your stitching partner is adorable! And, I just have to say, if I didn't like you so much I'd hate you!! LOL WOW! Look at you with all of your stitching. You go girl! LOVE Tanya's Coverlet designs, and the ornaments--oh my gosh. I need to get the lead out and get stitching! Congrats on all the finishes!

merumo said...

Looks like you are on a wonderful life there! Great ornament stitchings done and Tanya's design also looks pretty. And of course, your little doggie keeps you in the order, right?

Margaret said...

Love your Coverlet Houses finish! Just gorgeous! Love all the ornie finishes too -- wow! I see at least one I know appealed to me right away. :D Your fur baby is so cute!

Krista said...

I love the fall too, Faye, glad it is finally here. Your new stitchings are great. Love that houses design. You sure got a jump start on the holiday ornaments, that is what I have on tap for this weekend. I am an October baby too, but at the end of the month. Someone once told me that a person's favorite season is when they were born, so in my case that is true! Enjoy your day!

Diane said...

awwwww, I LOVE Ms. Truffles. She looks like a sweetie! Beagles are truly the "bestest" friends. I don't know how you could get so much stitching done with such a distractingly cute companion! My hands would be too busy stroking those beautiful ears. Wonderful finishes Faye!

robindefender said...

I saw you had posted and thought, 'well hello stranger!' I'm glad you are well, and I can't believe how many ornaments you have already stitched up! Several of those are on my to-do list, but none are stitched. Can't wait to see how you finish yours up.

Beth said...

Nine ornaments Faye - yowser! I can't wait to see your extra-special finishes for each.

I kiss you and tell you very quickly, again if you want something special from France do not hesitate before I close the package is always with great pleasure, kisses

The coverlet design is awesome and I can't wait to see your finished piece. That's a lot of ornaments you've stitched, girlfriend! Like your coverlet, can't wait to see how you finish them all!
We had a beagle, long ago - I still love 'em. Your princess looks so sweet.

Another October baby, I see! No wonder I love eveything you stitch. I'm itching to stitch Coverlet Houses and I see that we both chose many of the same ornies to stitch this year!! Beautiful work, as always, Faye!!!

Maggee said...

I have Coverlet Houses on my wish list, and seeing it again just anchors it more! NINE ornaments done? Actually, something I am doing for Christmas is at nine too! And I have only just begun! Is that the first time we have seen Ms. Truffles? I don't recall seeing her picture before... Hope your birthday is the best ever! Hugs!

P.J. said...

You are kickin' Stitch! Girl, look at all those ornaments. Can't wait to see your finish on coverlet house. Funny you wished us a Terrific Tuesday, that is what I posted on FB this AM to get the day started on a positive note, knowing what I was up against. The day ended on a rough note, until I spoke to my daughter, who made me laugh so hard that all the stress melted away. Yes it was a terrific Tuesday after all. :)

krayolakris said...

Love your ornie selection! Way to go!! Happy Birthday Month!

Lesleyanne said...

Lovely finish. That is a lot of ornaments. They look great.

Scattered Threads said...

You have been busy Faye and yes…If you don't manage your time, one could spend more time online and get no stitching done. LOL.
I won't begin to guess what the ornies are as I have not opened my magazine as yet. I am sure I will get to it.
Looking forward to see the finishes.
Enjoy your day:)

As you can see by my tardy comment, I've been spending more time stitching than blogging too. My blogging seems to come and go.
I love Coverlet House! I hadn't seen this one before and you've definitely enabled me, lol!
Amazing ornie finishes too. Wow!
