New Autumn Finishes

As promised, I'm updating my blog sooner rather than later! Here are my latest finishes that I just picked up from the Inspired Needle.

First up is "Pumpkin Row" by Chessie & Me.  It was stitched on Lakeside's 36 count Vintage Meadow Rue linen with the called for overdyed fibers. I'm a big fan of their designs. The specialty stitches are so much fun to do.

Another Chessie & Me; "All Hallow's Eve".   Belfast Light Mocha with the called for Belle Soie Silks! 

My new project bag from Natalia Canaday. Inside is another finished Blackbird Design from the "Loose Feathers Autumn" booklet.

 Pumpkin Blossom Sewing Box. Lakeside Sand Dune Linen, 32 count; called for fibers. I'm planning on finishing it as shown in the booklet.

The inside fabric is as beautiful as the outside.

Don't you just love these little Shepherd's Bush box designs?  The Christmas design from last year is my next project.

Speaking of Christmas, this is the ornament that I submitted to Becky's Christmas Ornament Challenge.
"Little by Little's" Sleigh Bird. Designs by Cynthia Bradford.

That's all for now. I wanted to wish you all a very Happy Thanksgiving and share with you a very old design that I finished  ages ago!
