Stitching Saturday

I had two finishes this week...

Pumpkin Spice Farm by Hands on Design is such a cutie. I went by Hobby Lobby to pick up some fabric for finishing.

I also finished another Christmas ornament for Grimmwood. Just one to go to get my total of 12.


I will have to have a finishing day next week.

I have two Thanksgiving pieces in the works.

I think I will change the black bird to a pumpkin! Not a fan of him in particular.

This  one may not be finished until next year!

Now on to Christmas stitching...

Up on the Rooftop...I am glad Hoffman is releasing some of the old patterns but I miss the cardboard patterns of the good old days. These patterns are so flimsy.

Silent Night...

My last ornament for Grimmwood in progress.

My Christmas  Cottage for December. I am loving this linen I found at my LNS.

One stitch at a time...hopefully all will be done by the holidays.

Good Morning, Oh how I love everything! I can't wait to see Grimmwood decorated for Christmas.
Remembering you, Marvin and the family in my prayers. xo

What a post! I love everything. You have one busy girl to say the least. I am impressed that you are meeting your goal of the 12 ornaments for Grimmwood. The favorite for me will be the cow. He is so cute.

I love the stitching patterns for the holidays! They would be so much fun to work on. I'm working on Christmas crafts already. I love it! Hugs!

Wow! You have been busy Arlene! I love those plaid linens and the red for Dec CCN is perfect, I might have to steal this idea when I do this series. Love the look of it! That PS cow was next on my list for our Christmas challenge but I opted to do a LHN for myself. I will stitch the cow next, it's adorable!!! Thanks for your tip on combining two close DMC togethers for a less expensive variegated look. Have a great weekend! Mary

Lovely finishes and very nice looking WIPs. Enjoy your weekend!

I loved seeing your works, finished and in progress! I agree with you that the blackbird would look better as a pumpkin! Can't wait to see it finished!!

Mari said...

You have so much going on! I like them all, and I like the idea of the pumpkin better than the bird too.

Arlene, that is such a strange crow in the picture. I think your idea of a pumpkin is MUCH better. Oh I love looking at all your work. ♥

I replaced a cat with a teapot in a cross stitch design once, so I have no problem with changing a blackbird into a pumpkin. Much nicer idea!

I was noticing at Priscilla's that she stitched the same cow as you did. She had an interesting finish for it; I think it was a tart pan. It came out really cute!

Your time at Grimmwood sounds just wonderful and Marvin sure looks relaxed in that porch picture. So thankful you have this getaway place!
