A Little Stitchin'

Gentle Friends sorry to have not posted yesterday, but I was working on something for Nicola over at "Nicola's Scarlet Letter Year" SAL. 

Today I'll post a couple of things, first up will be the HOE Summer Exchange piece I made for Linda, and here's a snaperoo...

... it arrived safe and sound.  I made a little Pyn Keepe, called "Bird Tree" by The Goode Huswife.  I left off the little poem.  I stitched it on a piece of 36ct Vintage something, using the recommended DMC Floss.  It so reminds me of Summer, and you just can't beat the Goode Huswife for a super design.  I finished it off with some trim from Nancy over at Victorian Motto, and a little Mother of Pearl heart on top.  I loved the way it turned out and Linda liked it, so that's what counts!!

Now, a little update on my Hallowe'en Branch...

....   I am really enjoying this piece more that I thought I would, just a totally fun piece to work on!!  I made an order for some different sized and coloured buttons so that when I get the stitching done I can add those.  This is sold as a kit, but I borrowed these charts and so I needed to find other buttons for finishing - lets hope they will work out when they arrive......

That's about it for today sports fans, thanks for stopping by, do stop again!!

Take care,
edgar

Love the stitching. I'm under a pile of to-be-sewn doll clothes, but I'm itching to do some cross-stitch.

I don't know the scale on your Halloween stitching, but I have some cute little owl buttons. (yellow owls) I think one might look great on the branch.

I like the LK Halloween piece. It looks like it will be lots of fun to stitch.
