Isn't this card from Norma fabulous!?  It just made my day to open the envelope and see these googly eyes.

We have been enjoying a glorious fall weekend here in NC.  I love fall but I do not love seeing all those leaves swirling around and landing in my yard.  Sigh....there is lots of raking in my future.

I did a bit of finishing for Chris recently and since her stitching is so dang pretty I just had to share them with you.  (She has already shared on her blog)

A little pillow with chenille trim.

A jar wrap.  I honestly don't know how Chris makes such tiny little perfect stitches.  My claws just can't do it.  And I just love the candy corn button she used on this one.

A larger pillow with some cluny lace trim and a button.  I left this one open so Chris could stuff it.  I do believe this is one of my most favorite Halloween designs.  I stitched it last year and finished it as an ornament for my Halloween tree.

Now, lest you think there has been no stitching going on here...I present to you a finish!

"Give Thanks"
Plum Street Samplers Freebie
32 ct raw linen/DMC floss

I haven't decided how I will finish/finish this one yet.  I have very little to display for Thanksgiving and this will make a great addition to my decor this year.

Thank you for stopping by!  I am off to enjoy this beautiful day.

's gorgeous! I've got it out now ('tis the season) and keep moving it around to figure out where I like it best. :D

Funny card, great finishes, & lovely stitch! I too love fall although not as much as winter : ) Today is almost the perfect fall day with the leaves falling everywhere, a bit of rain, & that fall smell in the air. Alas, Indian Summer is coming this afternoon & will stay till the weekend. BOOOOOO!!!

Carol said...

Very cute card from Norma and your finishing for Chris is wonderful, as always, Myra...I really meant to stitch that little witch one myself this year--just ran out of time! Hopefully, I'll get to it next year.

Love your Thanksgiving finish, too--like you, I have very little in the way of Thanksgiving stitching so I might just do this one, too :)

Hope you are having a good week so far!
