Fall Weather & Stitching

Hello all of my stitching friends, fall weather has finally come to Montana.
We have been having unusually warm weather for October, which has been lovely, but the temps are starting to fall into the 40's and 50's for the highs and 30's for the lows, which means that snow is coming soon. And the winds have been howling for the past two days, which just means more lovely crunchy fall leaves on the ground.
I love walking in the crunchy fall leaves.

Now onto my stitching.
Here is my latest design and finish.

"Give Thanks" Biscornu
Designer: Sandy
Stitched on 32ct. cream linen using DMC threads.
Finished 10-19-2010
The saying around the back edge reads:
For All We Are Given, Give Thanks Unto GOD From Whom All Blessings Flow.
I'll probably change the buttons at some point if I find ones that I thank are perfect, for now it just has pearl look cream buttons.

I'm working on getting some of my designs ready to sell, I've gotten a PDF program that I'm learning to use and I'm learning more about my Pattern Maker program so I can design my own layouts for the charts and adding instructions for the things that need them.
I really do hope to be selling my designs soon, either on a sale's blog of my own or with Cross Stitch Addicts after I get more info from them, only time will tell. If your interested in my designs I hope you will be patient with me while I get things all sorted out.

Take Care Everyone & Happy Stitching....

Hugs, Sandy

More Autumn Finishes

Happy October Everyone

I've finished up two more autumn pieces,
and what says autumn, well more pumpkins of course.

"ABC Pumpkin"
Designer: Sandy in MT
Stitched on 32ct hand-dyed linen using Caron Wildflowers in Marigold and Moss and DMC 310
I added a little bat to go along with the stitched spider.
Stitched: 09-26-2010 Finished: 09-27-2010
I finished this one into a little tin that I cannot open since I got in a hurry and put the lid on to soon after painting it black.
Oh well, we live and learn and I'll be more patient next time around.

Design: Harvest Blessings
Designer: Cecilia Turner of Heart In Hand
Stitched on 32ct hand-dyed linen using DMC Color Variations threads.
Stitched: 09-29-2010 Fimished: 09-30-2010
I changed this design by adding happy fall and a couple of buttons.
I omitted the original wording, border and star.
Finished it as a pin pillow.

Thank you all for stopping by and leaving you thoughts, I appreicate each and every one of them and they keep me designing and stitching.

Take Care & Happy Stitching Everyone

Hugs, Sandy
