Two posts in one day! Whooohooo! I decided to leave the whacked out dog on my La-D-Da Freebie Alphabet piece and finished it into a Christmas pillow. I used this plaid Homespun type fabric and made the tie from another piece of fabric since I didn't have any suitable ribbon in my stash. I added a key charm for a little extra "character". This is a larger pillow - about 8"x18". It will look nice on my hearth when the Christmas decorations come out.

Now, back to our previously scheduled Halloween stitching! LOL

BEEutiful :) I stitched this for Amy for an exchange with the same type finishing :) It's one of my favorite type finishes :)
Yours looks AMAZING!!
Have a great week :)

I like your Alphabet with Dog pillow! Looks great!

Your Country Cottage ornie is really pretty. The blue fabric really makes the birds & scarf "pop" in the piece. Lovely!

I like your choice of autumn colored thread for the Sew Blue piece. It looks wonderful!

This is gorgeous!!! I think the dog is just tops! Your "stocking stuffer" is gonna steal the show; your friend is going to be just floored.

How 'bout a tutorial for this pillow finish? Yours is simply gorgeous! ;) I so hear Halloween stitching calling to me! I have to finish up a summertime BBD, and then I will be on to some Autumn designs! Whee!!

Love the new look for the blog, btw.
