Halloween project pouch~~

Fall Greetings my friends~
I sure hope everyone had as good a Sunday as I did!!... I spent most of my day creating in the craft room... You guys have been busy sending me your goodies...Fall and Halloween finishes are flourishing and it's really put me in the mood.... That, and the fact that I leave for the Dyeing to Stitch retreat in Virginia this week! Yes~!
I did want to share a finish for myself I managed to squeeze into my day... The wonderfully talented Lori of Notforgotten Farm posted a Halloween freebie chart a couple weeks back that really caught my eye.... And since my BFF stitching friend LP had shared some of her pretty orange 25 ct Lugana, I stitched up this quick design last week easily.... Look ~here~ for the chart.....

The off centered design pops against the contrasting accent fabric.....

...Enjoy your week everyone.... With less than 3 months until Christmas, I know everyone is super busy stitching gorgeous projects~
Kindly,

A couple finishes....

Greetings friends~


Wow~~ I let the time really slip from me! Between school starting back, finishing lots and lots for others and doing a little stitching fr myself, turnaround and its mid September.... Yikes!!

I do have a couple finishes to share... Country Stitches had a winner of a kit released this month... I fell in love with the soft colors... Forget Me Not Sampler is prettier in person than any photo can convey~

Wouldn't you agree that is piece is the perfect combination of pale blues and antiqued tans...... All the cotton overdyes and 35 ct creme linen were included.... I coffee stained the linen accordingly the easy included directions. Now, I just have to decide how to finish this goodie... Keep ya posted!

Additionally, I finished stitching my larger project.... Scarlet Letters And All Was For an Appil.... The colors are so vibrant and will be sure to make my sampler wall pop!!

And all was for an Appil

I have contacted Scarlet Letter for a small red sampler to stitch next.... It should hold me until I can decide on my next large SL design....

Lastly, how totally excited do you think I got when I got my hands on this gorgeous sampler???!!!

Paulette Stewart of Plum Street Samplers & Antiques has been at it again... I have all my supplies gathered except for one floss.... So, soon this will be a Fall start for me~~

October brings a couple retreats for me and I am SO excited! And, from the look at what you guys are working on, I'm seeing beautiful ornaments and gifts to finish up in the craft room... Keep them coming!!!

Here's hoping your week is fantastic!
