Autumn & Halloween finishes....

I have been busily stitching my exchange Christmas ornaments for the Pals convention, but couldn't resist stitching some autumn and halloween goodies. I just love autumn...though it practically skips South Carolina each year.

Homespun Elegance "Autumn Time"
Stitched on 32 ct coffee-dyed linen

I had this little frame and finished it right away. Just too cute!

SB "Be Witch"
Stitched on 14 ct. coffee-dyed aida

I just love this series from SB and this one stitched up pretty quick. Isn't this the cutest...though my camera skills have turned a light brown fabric into white. Can't decide whether to finish as a cube or treat bag or pillow...guess it will depend on whether I feel like dragging out the sewing machine. We shall see....

Thanks for all your comments on my needlebook. Thank goodness for all of the wonderful blogs with finishing instructions...made it very easy. I can't wait to try another but I have to stitch something first!

I also must report that the recipient of the Petite Rainbow Row was over the moon with the gift and absolutely loved it. Unfortunately, I forgot to take a pic of it framed but will do so next time I visit it.

Oh to stitch. Work is extremely busy right now with all of the college students reporting back to school so it will probably be an early evening.

Happy stitches.....


  1. These are really cute Karen!! Good job...I have done a couple ornies for the Pals also....will be here really soon!!! YIPPEEE!~ Faye

  2. Oooo! Lovely Halloween designs! I especially love the SB one! It would make the sweetest cube!

  3. These two pieces are too cute!!!! Can't wait to see how you are going to finish the SB one~

  4. Your Halloween finishes are so cute. I love fall. Im thinking about decorating for Halloween the first week of September lol.

  5. Wow, your stitching looks so great!!

  6. Karen, These fall projects are great! You must really be in a fall frame of mind between working at a college, stitching about these and getting ready for the PALS retreat! I hope to be albe to attend the PALS retreat someday - probably when my kids are a little older. Sounds like a wonderful time. Thanks for sharing these finishes! Have fun at work. Meredith

  7. Both finishes look wonderful! I love Halloween/Autumn designs too! Love the needlebook you made for Jan.
