The other day, I pulled out my autumn needlework pieces and decided to do a little decorating with them in the house. When Bruce and I went to Pennsylvania this summer, we found some wonderful frame stands in an Amish country store, perfect for displaying some of our needlework. Here are just a few of my favorite pieces.
|"Autumn Basket" (Sunflower Samplings)|
|"Falling Leaves" (Prarie Grove Peddler)|
|"Autumn Leaves" (Elizabeth's Designs)|
Although like every other stitcher, I too am always adding to my "stash" of pieces that I just can't wait to stitch. Although some of these patterns were among some of my older "stash", I had such fun stitching them. After all, with the way the economy affects all of us in our spending now, I am so grateful that I can "shop" in my own closet now for something new to stitch!
By the end of the weekend, I should have "Quaker Faith" finished! It is turning out really nicely, and of course I am an avid Quaker designs stitcher, so I love it! So, I will be posting my finished piece soon, I hope. Then I will be starting some Christmas ornaments. My daughter-in-law, Gwen, put a whole bunch of stitcky notes in my 2009 & 2010 Just Cross Stitch Ornaments issues, noting her favorite ornaments...hint...hint:)
