Acorn Hill

I put the last stitches in Acorn Hill this afternoon!!! I love how this one turned out! The stitching went a lot faster than I thought it would! I stretched it this evening and it is headed to the framers tomorrow! I am taking a small break from Autumn stitching. ;o) I have a couple of things that are close to being stitched, so I am going to finish those and then I have a gift I want to stitch. But after that I will pick my Autumn stitching back up. ;o)

Acorn Hill was stitched on 28ct. Vintage Lentil from Lakeside Linens. LOVE this fabric. I love the mottled green! ;o) I did use the Crescent Colours Conversion. And if you are thinking of stitching this yourself. I needed two skeins of Brown Sugar and I came close on Bramble Bush and Weeping Willow. ;o)

A finish and a new start...

I have a new finish! I started Autumn Harvest by Little House Needleworks on Sunday August 7th and finished it on Sunday August 14th. I stitched it on 28ct Tea dyed Irish Linen with the recommended DMC threads. It was a very fun and fast stitch. I am getting it ready to be taken to the framers this weekend. I will show it when I get it back.

I have already started a new Autumn stitch. It is Acorn Hill by Little House Needleworks. I am stitching it on 28 ct Vintage Lentil by Lakeside Linens with the Crescent Colours substitution. I took this picture yesterday and I have already made a lot more progress. This one is going to take me a lot longer, so I will be sure and show updates.

Sorry the pictures are so dark, it is Monsoon season here in Arizona so we have been having storms every day! YEAH!

Welcome to all of my new followers! ;o)

Pink & Brown Happy Birthday

I made this birthday card for me sweet friend Jenn. She and I share a love of pink! ;o) I love these sets from Papertrey! I stamped BB Sheet Music on some pink patterned paper I had in my stash. I love Make a wish and Make a wish Additions. Of course I had to add a little bit of Stickles to the top of each layer. ;o)


Pumpkin Cottage

I finished this piece on Sunday afternoon. It took me right at about a month to stitch it. It was delightful to stitch. Country Cottage Needleworks is one of my favourite designers. I stitched it on the recommended fabric and used the recommended threads. I stretched it today and will take it to JoAnn's to be framed this weekend. I will show it again when it is framed. I can't wait for Autumn!!

Happy stitching!
