I've been in a stitching mood lately - let me share with you what I've made...
From a pattern from The Stitcherhood - Salem Semetary #8 found here. I thought this was just too cute - I love going to cemeteries and looking at old tombstones. There are only 3 colors used in this design, I think it really makes the pumpkins and vines stand out.
This next one - Autumn is a freebie design from The Stitcherhood, found here I made a mistake in reading the floss colors on this one - the word Autumn is supposed to be stitched in 3012 and I stitched in 3021! I like the mistake - 3021 is actually a darker green.
I have LOTS of little frames that need filling so I took design elements from the above chart and stitched only portions to come up with these two little pieces. I absolutely LOVE the frame on the left.
This next little pinkeep is a Stacy Nash pattern - Jack Treat Bag and Pinkeep. This was a quick stitchery and I made 2 other ones to send in swaps I've joined this fall.
This next one is another freebie from Lizzie Kate - Spooky Time and can be found here I did not have the spider charm that was called for in the pattern so I substituted a stitched pumpkin in it's place. In 25 years of cross stitching I've never stitched on black cloth - it is a challenge and I had to sit right under the lamp! Maybe my eyes are getting old...
This last one is a needle punch that I made from a book I checked out of the library last year - I don't remember who the designer was - I am sorry - I didn't make a note of it. I glued the edges of the punching fabric and cut close to the design. I then glued it to a plaid homespun that my friend, Melissa from Farm Field Primitives gave me. Thanks Melissa.
Got to get back to my stitching - actually I have a couple of basket orders that need to be completed so my needle will have to wait. Have a great weekend ~Ann
