Another post????

Goodness I have more stuff to share. What is going on?? Some months I don't hardly post but recently I have a lot to share. Perhaps something to do with DH being away??? Cats will play etc etc.. Or at least GET ON THE COMPUTER!!!

Okay firstly, I have a finish:

Vierlanden Mystery Suzanne
Yay! This is my Wiehenburg mystery Suzanne! It was a freebie on the Yahoo group but not there any more although there is another freebie being collected on there at the moment(Shhhhh!!)
Stitched on 32 count Natural belfast linen with DMC Variations 4210.

Next up:

small gift for Polly Nov 08
This is another freebie as a sorry to someone. I don't think she reads my blog but I could be wrong. You can hardly see it in the picture but it is very pretty stitched on polstitches fabric with dragonfloss. I filled it with rice and lavender.

And lastly:

Harvest time ex for Leena Nov 08

Back using the fabric she sent me last year

This is the Harvest time Exchange I sent to Leena. It is Autumn Song by Blackbird designs using the recommended fabric and threads. I stitched it over one and made it into a pinkeep. I gave it a rouched ribbon edge (my first) and used some fabric that Leena herself sent me during the last Harvest time exchange last year!! So all in all I am quite pleased with how it turned out and I believe Leena loves it too!

Have a good week everyone. xx

Hi Hazel, Your harvest exchange piece is darling. I love that design, and the ribbon really sets itoff nicely. I have intentions to stitch more Autumn pieces to have for decorating the house. In the meantime, I have bought some pretty autumn pieces at 80% off at Hobby Lobby and came home and decorated all my window sills. It was so much fun and I didn't even spend that much to do it. I love it!

Also, your Suzanne Sampler is lovely. I can hardly wait to see that framed. Do post a picture again when it is framed and hanging.

I have been meaning to ask you if you are joining the Mystery Spot SAL with Martina? I just signed up :-). Need to send the payment in once she replies to me, but I wondered if you had heard of it. Thought I would mention it in case you need another project! Ha! Ha!

We're having Thanksgiving next week. and Rog is off, so we have all these errands to run, and I've started some Christmas shopping as well. I can tell it's going to get very busy from now until Christmastime. We have our reunion after Christmas at my house, and 60+ people here...so it is really fun, but also a bit of work preparing for it. TTYS -- and enjoy your stitching time now that DH is out of town.

That Autumn piece is beautiful, too. You did a great job.

Getting lots of stitching done. Great!!
