After stitching along on some larger patriotic pieces, I needed a change of pace. So I decided to do a little more of Christmas in July. :o)
I first saw this piece on Carol's blog and just love how it looked with a black background. I finished it as a little pillow ornament with a unique shape to suit the design. This is a freebie by
Madame La Fee and you can still find it on her site.
As the title of my post says, I then decided to switch seasons. I had stitched four of the charts from the Blackbird Designs book "Casting A Spell". I originally intended to stitch them all and make the box as pictured in the book. Wellllllll, since I am at liberty to change my mind I choose not to make the box and instead finish these as little pillows. I want to make up lots of little autumn pillows to fill this gathering basket I found at Hobby Lobby.
This last one is my favorite. I am still trying to decide if I am finished with these or if I want to add some chenille trim. I think I will let them sit like this for a while.
Time to make my lunch for tomorrow and waddle off to bed. The first day back after vacation is always rough so I am going to call it an early one tonight. Thank you for your visits and your wonderful comments. Have a great week!
