A few small Prairie finishes

Hello everyone,
I've got a few small finishes to share today. I like to keep a few small projects in a travel bag for when I have time to stitch while away from home. These past few weeks I have been making the most of my time in waiting rooms - so I  have a few fall projects ready for finishing - I hope to share them soon. I did find some time this week to make a few scissors fobs / ornaments.

First finish is from the mini card collection 'D'  © 2010 The Prairie Schooler, Inc.
Fabric: 30ct lambswool evenweave
DMC Threads
Stitch Count 29 x 29, 2 over 2

Next is another Prairie Schooler design, this one is from the booklet #138 Measure of a Year
Summer Beehive © 2007 The Prairie Schooler, Inc.
Fabric: 30ct lambswool evenweave
DMC Threads
Stitch Count 30 x 33, 2 over 2

I'm currently working on a few Christmas ornaments one for an exchange and a few for gifts.

Until next time, have a wonderful day!

Fall exchange

Hi everyone,
Last month I took part in an autumn themed exchange. My package travelled to Singapore to Ellen at Stitch-Passion.

I chose to stitch her a fall themed needle roll.

Autumn Squirrels
Designer: Janelle Giese -  published in the September 2013 issue of cross-stitch & Needlework.
Fabric: 28 ct Lambswool Linen
Threads: DMC, Kreinik Ombre, Kreinik #8, Kreinik Cord
Mill Hill Beads
Stitch Count: 42 x 70  with cross stitch, half stitch, quarter stitch, back stitch, straight stitch, wheat stitch, stem stitch, couching, and blended threads.

Here is the package I sent. I'm so glad that she liked what I sent her.

Ellen sent me this beautifully stitched Bent Creek pillow. So beautifully stitched and finished.

She also included these lovely extras. I can't wait to find some fun projects for the trims and buttons.

This was such a fun exchange. Thanks Ellen for such lovely gifts.

Until next time....Have a wonderful day!
