A Frame, A Finish-finish and a New Start!

Hello! I've actually been getting a little stitching done lately - woohoo! First up, Sunflower Inn all framed up - I love it! Right now it's sitting on the sideboard in our dining room but hopefully it will be hung soon!

Second, within a couple weeks (not too fast, but at least I got it done in time for this Fall!) I stitched and finished this freebie by The Stitcherhood.

Autumn (Freebie)
The Stitcherhood
piece of leftover linen I coffee died and threads I had around
I also added the leaf buttons I found in a craft store
Last, I started Red House in Winter by Little House Needleworks. I love this pattern and the houses in these ornaments remind me of the houses on the street we live. I am using a 32 count linen (I can't remember the name of it) rather than the recommended 30 so the ornament will be a little smaller than the model. I just like 32 count better to stitch on. I am using all the called for thread except for the Crecent Color Bing Cherry. My LHN didn't have that so I chose The Gentle Art's Current (0312) instead.
I have quite a few of these ornament patterns so I'll probably be working on them for the remainder of the year. I also have 6 ornaments (from various designers) that I need to finish-finish. I hope to start some of the finishing next week.
That's it for now. Thanks for visiting and inspiring me always!!!


  1. BEAUTIFULLY framed finish...I love Sunflower House...I need to stitch this for myself :)
    And your little Autumn shelf hanger...gorgeously cute :)
    I've got loads of ornaments on my list too ;)

  2. Great job on the finishes! I love your new start, too. :)

  3. Congrats on your finish!! Love the piece and the frame. Good inspiration to finish! I too have had the pleasure of extra stitching time this week. Love the Autumn, now I really want to decorate for fall. I want to start the red house ornament next but need to order threads for the house...

  4. Sunflower Inn looks fabulous! All of your work is great. So glad I found your blog through another stitching blog!
