The days are getting shorter and the temps are getting cooler. Fall is definitely in the air. I haven't been able to stitch nearly as much as I'd like but I have made a little bit of progress:
Pumpkin Hollow is almost done. All that is left is the green grass and a few green leaves on the tree. I'd be done with it, except somehow I've misplaced the skein of green DMC floss that I need. I can't find it anywhere. I'm starting to wonder if I just didn't pick it up on my last trip to Hobby Lobby. I'm anticipating an online supply order in the very near future!
This little piece is a really fun and easy stitch. If you are interested in stitching it for yourself, it is a freebie design from Liberty House Primitives, designed by Nancy Woodson.
I also have another small piece under way, Blessed Be by Barbara Cooley of Plum Pudding Needleart. The design calls for DMC but I decided to substitute hand dyed fibers from stash. So far I'm loving it. The pumpkin has really great depth and even the bird looks good in a dark, mottled grayish brown. I can't wait to get this one finished.
There is still no garment sewing to report. The October issue of Burda Style left me a bit underwhelmed, but the September issue is still tempting me and the November issue looks to be good. I have a ponte knit and an ITY print calling my name from the stash right now, so maybe this weekend I can get something started.
Happy fall sewing and crafting! May all your projects turn out perfect!
