I finished stitching Pumpkin Patch by Prairie Schooler just a few minutes ago. I think I'll have it framed as it is a lovely Fall design.

We are officially in the 'Fall' season now as our temperatures have been in the 50s during the mornings and evenings this week. I hope it lasts and this isn't a teaser before hot weather descends on us for another week or two!!

Until next time ^____^

Stash and stitching

Hi! I hope you're having a great weekend so far. Sadly, we are still having hot temperatures during the day with teasing cooler temperatures in the morning. I can't wait for Fall to officially get here and stay for awhile ;)

I went by my LNS this morning and picked up some fabric: 1 piece of 28ct China Moon Zweigart and 2 pieces of 32ct cream Belfast. I also went by Hobby Lobby and picked up some DMC threads. I hope to start some Halloween stitching tomorrow!!

I'll have a pic if I start anything tomorrow! Right now, I'm off to attend a baby shower. It should be loads of fun!

Until next time ^___^

A Happy Pumpkin

I was at my local bookstore a while ago on the hunt for birthday gifts and I saw the Halloween issue of JCS on the shelves! And of course I couldn't resist starting one of the designs once I got the magazine home!

Design: Jack O'Lantern by Casey Buonaugurio
Threads: DMC
Fabric: 30 ct Carrot Zweigart
Start/Finish: 9/5/2010

I haven't decided how to finish this one yet. Maybe a pinkeep or pillow ;)

Until next time ^____^

A little ghost!

Design: Eek by Pine Mountain Designs
Threads: DMC
Fabric: Unknown color and count
Start/Finish: 9/4/2010

Hi, everyone! I finished this little ghostie a couple of weeks ago, but I haven't been able to post about it until today.

I found this Pine Mountain Designs kit at my LNS in their sale section! This design is actually a pillow finish, but I haven't finished it yet ;)

Hopefully, I'll get to it this weekend amongst errands and attending a baby shower for a friend.

Until next time ^____^
