Do you like it??? I really enjoy decorating the house for it. We live 12 miles out in the country so we do not get any kids but the fun of the season for me is the weather the stitching designs and the smells of the cooking apple cider, pumpkin, a good hardy stew. Nothing is better. I do not get people saying it is evil or sends the wrong message. Look back in history the church was the ones that gave it the evil connotation not the Wickens or Pagens they rejoice in the Fall Equinox and being one with the earth. I was raised Catholic but I do not agree with all of their views and this is one I disagree with.

Alright enough of my soap-boxing lets get to the stitching. Looking back my last post was Wipocalypse. Since then I have not had anymore time for my cross stitching but I have been sewing so my thread time is good. I had a request for 2 of my wallets as Christmas gifts. All she said was one she wanted in purple and one in peach. Well as you can imagine that leaves alot to the imagination. I made 2 of each color and will let her choose and the others I will add to my inventory. I really need to get my butt in gear and open my Etsy store.

I have worked on Poof by Ursula Michaels, Autumn Ala Round by Glendon Place and Joy Joy Joy by Kelly Clark

As we all know Christmas is right around the corner.....oh my that is scary. Well that is beside the point but it made me think. I don't have a Christmas stitch on the go. Well yes there is Joy but that is embroidery on cross stitch so it does not count. I need..... yes, NEED to start a Christmas stitch so I pulled out these Snowmen I bought last year but did not get time to stitch yet. They will be stitched on 16 count snowflake aida I bought from silkweaver and they will all be on 1 banner. I will add either Welcome or Merry Christmas over top them. I am using the floss that cam with the kit but I do not really care for it. It feels rough to me so I am thinking they use Sullivan floss. It should be fun as I go along.
I showed you the finished stitching of my sisters card but while I was in the sewing room I FFOed this into a hanging ornament for her. I used 1 of the many stitches that my new machine has to offer and although it is a bit wonky I am sure she will love it.

I hope you enjoy the evening and welcome you back for my next posting. It will be November already and that means Thanksgiving, Christmas and the New Year are quickly approaching.

  1. Nice wallets. I love Halloween and I decorate although we don't get trick or treaters. I have Halloween stitching that I'll continue working on throughout this year and next. Yeah, thanks for the reminder about the holidays coming up, ugh!
