the Hallowe'en Blog Hop

Welcome to my stop on Jo's Hallowe'en Blog Hop!

This blog hop is being hosted by Jo of Serendipitous Stitching.  Please visit the start of the Hallowe'en Blog Hop if you would like to collect the letters for the mystery phrase.

As part of the blog hop, I am featuring some Autumn and Halloween stitching that I have completed.  This year I have decided to showcase a Parliament of Owls.

I recently finished an adorable little project: "Mini Banner Fall" by Debbie Mumm.  This was a fun stitch, and I love the cute little hangar that came with the kit!

"Mini Banner Fall" by Debbie Mumm
 Here are some owl projects I previously stitched:

Owl-O-Ween by Marie Driskill : 2013 JCS Halloween Issue
Owl : Elizabeth Spurlock
Spell of the Moon by Blackbird Designs
Little Owl Sampler by Knotted Tree NeedleArt
(freebie) Owl chart by Aliolka
Which brings me to the last little owl ... He is a tough little bird and is holding your secret letter:
In case you are graphically challenged, the secret letter is "T".

I hope you enjoyed your visit ... now I must send you off to the next stop in the Hallowe'en Blog Hop: http://astridxstitching.blogspot.com/

my Gifted Gorgeousness Update for October

"Mini Banner Fall" by Debbie Mumm
It's time for another "Gifted Gorgeousness" update.  This stitch-a-long is being hosted by Jo of Serendipitous StitchingGifted Gorgeousness projects are projects that were made to be given as a gift, or in some way or part received as a gift.

I continued stitching on "Mini Banner Fall" by Debbie Mumm (kit purchased with gift card from my Mom), making good progress.  I have been super busy with work, but I will still try to complete this project by the end of the month.

I also worked a bit on the border of 'A Chirpy Sort of Place" (kit gifted to me by a special friend).  Not too exciting, but progress is good.

That's all for this update ... I wish I had more time to stitch - but I will take what I get.
Happy Stitching!

my WIPocalypse post for September

Multi-Coloured Alphabet by Gail Lawther
I'm happy to report that I have a finish for this WIPocalypse update!  I finally finished "Multi-Coloured Alphabet" by Gail Lawther.  I used a selection of variegated floss to stitch this fun project.  The bright and happy colors bring me joy.

I also managed a bit of stitching on "Mini Banner Fall" by Debbie Mumm.  I am moving right along on this project and hope to finish it by the end of October.

I am having trouble getting into the WIPocalypse blog - but I will return to add the Q&A and the proper link as soon as I get the info.

Happy Stitching!

my Gifted Gorgeousness Update for August


It's time for my August "Gifted Gorgeousness" update.  This stitch-a-long is being hosted by Jo of Serendipitous StitchingGifted Gorgeousness projects are projects that were made to be given as a gift, or in some way or part received as a gift.

I actually managed to create, stitch and finish a Halloween ornament (shown above)!   This little spooky old house is Gifted Gorgeousness X3 I stitched the ornament with threads that were purchased with a gift card, I used buttons that were gifted to me by a crafty friend, and I created the chart to offer as a freebie Halloween design, so you can grab a copy from my website here: http://hobbyloco.com/patterns/oldhouse.html

I put some time into "Hummingbird and Fuchsias" which is a printed kit that was gifted to me by my Mom.  I stitched the flower bud and did the outlining of the bud and leaves. 


I pulled out "Gathering Honey", which I hadn't worked on for quite a long time. (Fabric and threads were purchased with a gift card.)  I completed the stitching and outlining on the lower left garden section. 


And last, but not least ... I stitched on my "Mini Banner Fall", which is moving along nicely.  (This was purchased as a kit with a gift card as well.)



That's all I have to show for this month's update.  I hope to have even more progress made next month.

Happy Stitching!
