If the Shoe fits.....

How cute is this design???? I found this little freebie last week and couldn't wait to stitch it.

Stitchwiz "If the Shoe Fits..." stitched on 18ct Aida w/ DMC

I had planned to make an ornament but couldn't decide on the fabric so I used both and made this little pillow!

Next up....

Since I didn't have enough Halloween and I have a huge piece of orange Aida, I stitched this freebie from the Sampler Girl...

"Boo Quaker" stitched on 14ct Aida w/DMC

I can't decide how to finish this...any ideas? I would love some suggestions since I am stumped!


I thought I would share my progress on "My Lady's Quaker". I picked it up for a few hours this past weekend and made some progress. I love the colors and need to get this finished so I can start the Gentleman!

I just got some new stash from Down Sunshine Lane and I am dying to start some of it!!! I will persevere, though, and make myself finish My Lady's Quaker and BBD "Moonlit Garden".

Thanks for looking and all of your comments! Happy stitching...

Harvest Time Exchange to share....

I got a sweet email from Maggee that she had received her Harvest Time Exchange and wanted to share a pic. It is a combination of BC's "Blessings Abound" and "Pumpkin Flower" designs. I really liked the finishing on this one, even if I say so myself, and loved the way it turned out. May have to stitch one for me!

Well...back to some more Halloween stitching!

"Tricky Treats", TUSAL and dribble....

You can never have enough Halloween so I stitched this the past couple of nights and love this design.

Trilogy "Tricky Treats" kit

I will probably finish as a little ornament if I can find the right fabric. I liked the sentiment so much, I decided to make a little "Tricky Treats" goodie jar using some of my Halloween paper. Take an empty (very clean) nut container, attach some cute Halloween paper, and make a cute little tag. Voila...I have a neat little treat for my desk at work.

I have some more cute Halloween/Autumn paper and can't wait to make some cards, tags and Halloween crackers. Just need to find a quiet afternoon to create!

Lastly, it is the new moon and time to share this month's progress on the TUSAL.

Well....this post is my 100th post....oh how time flies when you are having fun! I have almost been blogging for a year and can't believe all of the wonderful stitchers I have found in cyberspace. I have learned so much looking at other stitchers' blogs and thank you so much for all of your wonderful comments! I do appreciate them and love visiting your blog too!

Off to bed....I had vowed to turn in early tonight but the stitching won out. Early morning tomorrow as we are heading to Clemson for some football....yeah! Hope you have a great stitchy weekend.

"She Tends" mostly finished....

Shepherd's Bush "She Tends"
32 count linen hand-dyed with GA and WDW

After seeing Patti's finished SB "She Tends", I decided to stitch the four designs as one and am very happy with it. It took a lot longer than I thought it would because of all of the color changes. I keep looking at it to make sure I didn't forget something...just have this feeling there is a stitch missing. Oh well. It is "mostly finished" because I am missing the 4 silver charms but it will be awhile before I can pick those up. If I get industrious enough, I may just stitch the girl, boy, and two sheep in their appropriate spots. For now, though, it is going in the finished bin. I love the Jill Rensel mats used for the model and would like to see if I can get something similar.

Now I will go back to "My Lady's Quaker" and BBD "Moonlit Garden". I also have a lot of exchange stitching to do for October/November so I am trying to stay ahead. Thanks for visiting and wishing you happy stitches.

My Lady's Quaker is ready for some football!

Yeah...the college football season starts tonight and I am so excited so this will be a quick one! I finally got started on My Lady's Quaker SAL last night.

28 Antique White Jobelan
DMC 930/932
I was all ready to go with my pretty pink/green combination but then they had to post "A Gentleman's Quaker". I love it too and knew these two would be great in my bedroom so I chose form over fashion and went with suitable colors.

It's been a fun stitch so far and I really like the colors now that I have put needle to fabric. Oh well.....the first college game starts in 25 minutes so I am off to get my stitching ready so that I don't have to move for the next 3 hours! Happy stitches...
