I completed my Fall exchange and it is in the mail, finally. We had issues with two of the cockers eating the patterns and some of the thread. While they were on the paper binge, they destroyed 3 cookbooks and 2 Harry Potter books. They are rescue dogs and they were almost put up for adoption. I chose a Bent Creek pattern called "The Little House". I used DMC threads and used fabric in my stash. I finished it as a little pillow with 2 colors of beads caught in the stitching around the edge.

I received my Fall exchange from Rosa in the mail yesterday. It is a little ornament that she added crocheted lace to the bottom that was made in the 1800's. It is a Nikyscreation design and I love it. It is hanging on my little fall tree in our entry. It is perfect. Thank you so much Rosa. I love it.

Lillie in Malaysia. It is absolutely beautiful. I love it and it goes so well with all of my needlework that I have displayed. It was a freebie and Lillie got it a long time back and she doesn't remember the designer or the name of the pattern. It is stitched on evenweave with 712 DMC Floss. Thank you so much Lillie!!!!

This is the biscornu I stitched for Juanice. It is called Tulips from the Spring Biscornu Stackers designed by Jeannette Douglas. It is stitched on 32 ct. Wichelt Lambswool using the suggested threads. It was fun to do and I always love how they turn out. I apologize for the light colors but the threads were so pale.

Getting ready to go play for a wedding. I will be playing "Jesu, Joy of Man's Desiring" by Bach on my violin. I will have fun doing that. Wishing everyone a great week.

I received my Christmas ornie from Melissa today in the mail. It is darling. It says Jolly and it has pretty pink ribbon ruching. I love it. It is from the most recent JCS Christmas ornie issue. Thank you Melissa. It is hanging on my little tree with my spring ornaments.

My Christmas ornament is in the mail. I used one of Sharon Bennett's little reindeer patterns. I just love them and I never get tired of stitching them. The pattern is called Ribbon Reindeer. Instead of stitching the ribbon with thread I used beads. I used 28count fabric which is was in my stash and used the suggested threads. I made it into a little hanging pillow. I'm practicing using Marie P.'s method of stitching corners. I'll post a picture when it arrives in its new home.
