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
