The last autumn pieces.

Look at this cute freebie from Paulette Stewart of the Plumstreet Samplers. I stitched it on Zweigart vintage orange. Change some of the colours and finished it on the top of a box.
The pictures don't do any justice because the weather is nowdays awful. No sunshines to find.

My ornie from LK chart Autumn basket for my exchangepartner Pirjo from Finland.
The backside.

This piece is a part of the LHN chart State Fair, stitched on Zweigart linen vintage orange. Luckily my Seasonal exchangepartner Christina loved it.

The last piece is from LK Harvest sampler, stitched on Zweigart linen. I changed some of the colours.

Hope you enjoy looking at these pieces. For us it's time to celebrate Sinterklaas and after then it's time to decorate our home for Christmas. I have stitched some Christmas pieces so love to see you again.
Thanks for stopping by and for your sweet comments.

Show and tell.

I want to show you my Fall and Halloween pieces. I love pumpkins so I take part of the Great Pumpkins Challenge of Becky SC. Mostly we don't celebrate Halloween but this year the children of our neighbourhood came knocking at the door.
I put a branch in a big vase and decorate it with my pieces. I also but the Christmas tree lights it. And of course there was also a big bowl with candy's
Here comes my pieces.
This one is a freebie from Gazette. I think it's a challenge to use so much different fabric for the pieces. I chose my own colours, using Threadworx, Carrie thread and DMC varitions.

Alwasy love the designs of Brittercup. Look at these cute kittens! The fabric is lambswool.

This is a part of LK chart, stitched on 32 count light blue linen.

Blessed be is a freebie from Plum Pudding needleart stitched on 32 count Mocha linen.

Pumpkinflower is a freebie from Full Circle Designs. I change some colours.

An autumn freebie from San-man originals

For this piece I did use the recommended threads. The orange is from Threadworx and DMC varitions. For the bat I blended two different DMC colours together because I think it's more scarry than only using black.

The last 2 pieces are from Waxing Moon, Halloween tree and Autumn minis. I enjoyed stitching all the pieces and also made some pins because is really hard to find some Halloween decoration here. OOPS, I forget some pieces, I keep them in mind for the next time.
Thanks for visiting me and for your sweet comments.

It's raining gifts here.

Today it's an awful weather here, wind and rain but I made a Happy Dance because it's raining gifts from my exchangepartners.
I get a beautiful box from Lisa (V) all the way from Australia. She stitched the design from French designer Danybrod on 28 count Silkweaver linen "Raphsody". The design is called Rond Fleuri and finished it on the top of a box.
And look at this side. A tiny, cute charm is added to the ribbon. This is my first exchangebox and I love it, it's really gorgeous! Thanks so much, Lisa for this private exchange. You have done a great job for me.

No, no, it's not enough. Here is the Seasonal exchangepiece from Lisa (S). She stitched a design from my favo designer Prairie Schooler. It's from the Acorns book and stitched on 32 count Lambswool with DMC threads. I don't have this design so it's a surprise for me. Isn't gorgeous too?

And look at the backside. The fabric fits so well.

The last one is from the LK exchange. A cute, little cushion from Finland. I love to thank my partner , but don't know, who is making such a beautiful cushion for me. Anyway thanks partner for this gift, I love it.

Lovely exchanges! I feel spoiled with these beautiful pieces. I'm going to treasure them all.
