Happy Fall Y'all...
last weekend I ushered in the autumn season by stitching the newly released Autumn Band Sampler by Little House Needleworks. Here it is, hot of the q-snaps:
I know it's...
no secret that I am totally on board with just about everything that Diane Williams designs :o) and as soon as I saw this cutie, I knew immediately I wanted to stitch it up and finish it so that I could enjoy it this season. So please let me unveil my creation:
"Autumn Band Sampler"
Designed by: Little House Needleworks ~ Diane Williams
Stitched on: 28 ct. Vonna hand-dyed linen
Stitched with: Crescent Colours, GAST and WDW cottons
(*only change from charted colors is: I used WDW Ivy and Kudzu for the greens)
Finished as a Bell Pull using Images Stitcher Design Wooden Bell Pull Type C in Walnut Finish
turn out pretty? This is the first bell pull I've ever made for myself and I must say, this type of finishing lends well for display potential and it is very easy on the pocket book, and really takes very little know how on the finishing. I was recently introduced to Images Stitchery Design and their beautiful wooden bell pulls. Golly lots of choices for future stitches! But first things first (before I go on a project binge) this project all came together, in my personal opinion, for a stunning finish. Here it is in my entry way, greeting all who enter our humble abode.
what's up next?! Well, I have a colleague that is celebrating a birthday this week and she is such a kind, gentle lady that I always try to make something for her to help her celebrate! I've got a goodie pulled out and ready to stitch, so fingers crossed, I'll have another post by weeks end!
Until next time my dearies...
I'll be keeping my "hands to work and heart to God" just like always!
Hugs and love,
"May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit." ~Romans 15:13
