Autumn Exchange from Myrna

I received my autumn seasonal exchange from Myrna yesterday and she really spoiled me! She stitched me signs of autumn by Bent Creek and finished it into a great post pinkeep. She also stitched me an adorable fall fob by Trail Creek Farm (now, I have a great excuse for more scissors-LOL). Beautiful stitching and finishing on both. Now onto the wonderful goodies of socks, a chart called autumn harvest by LHN along with the fabric, and dmc thread to complete it. She also sent some autumn fabric quarters, ribbon, autumn themed knick knacks and charm, candies for the kids and treats for my fur babies. I know this list seems endless, but Myrna was so incredibly generous that I still feel overwhelmed today. THANKS so much Myrna!

An Exchange for Myrna and a RAK too.......

This is my autumn seasonal exchange for Myrna of Still Living in Wonderland . I stitched think autumn by Lizzie Kate and made it into a tall pinkeep. It it stitched on 32 ct fossil by Picture this Plus fabric and the fabric underneath it is also the backing fabric. I finished it of with a raffia bow. Myrna received it today and says she loved everything of which I am very happy to hear! The second picture of course are the extras I sent. Enjoy Myrna!

Then below is a very sweet RAK that I received from Tracy of Passion of My Needle .It is Rose Garden by Patricia Ann Designs. Tracy sent just because of encouraging comments that I have left on her bog. Well that was easy because Tracy does beautiful work! You should go by her blog and check out her stitching scrapbook. It's another wonderful way to display your stitching. Thanks so much Tracy!

My Cone Runneth Over Framed!

This my cone runneth over by Raise the Roof designs. A fun and colorful stitch that I did on a linen called sorbet if I recall correctly. Quite appropriate don't you think? I have this hanging in my kitchen and I really like the colors in it. Double matted in a dark mauve color and framed in a wide simple black frame.

I have been a terrible slacker in posting I know. Currently, I am working on completing my autumn exchange. I am also mulling over what I really want to work on and stitch. Too many other distractions have come into play lately like reading and work. Thanks for all the comments regarding the kids first day of school. They are settling in fairly well and we are adjusting to the school times. Thanks too for taking the time to visit me. Have a great week.
