Pink Ribbon for Breast Cancer Awareness

I was inspired to design a little pink ribbon embroidery pattern in honor of breast cancer awareness month. This stitched up in no time. I put a patchwork fabric frame around it and think it would look great as a block in an all pink quilt, if only I liked to quilt... I am accumulating lots of these little patchwork quilt blocks with embroidery designs in them.

Pumpkin Patch Cross Stitch

I am very anxious to buy pumpkins, but I'll wait a touch longer until October arrives. In the meantime I guess I will focus on my pumpkin needlework and starting getting it out to decorate. Can't wait to roast pumpkin seeds.

Touching the Autumn Sky Complete!

I am very excited that I finished my "Touching the Autumn Sky" Mirabilia cross stitch pattern over the weekend. Whew, took a long time. I can't even remember when I started it. I'm looking for just the right frame now. I have completed two of Mirabilia's patterns in my cross stitching career, the other one is "Under the Friendship Tree". I really like her patterns of children. I have started the letter "C" of her letters series, however I am using Weeks Dye Works flosses instead of Crescent Colors. Looking forward to see how that turns out.

Pumpkin Cross Stitch for October

I would say pumpkins are one of my very favorite things to stitch. I love this time of year too, especially October when the pumpkin bins are full at the store, the kids are running through the pumpkin patch to find just the right one and then they begin appearing on porches and doorsteps with goofy or scary faces illuminated with candles. Lots of fun. I also really like orange and purple together...
