April Ornament Club Pattern

April2013OrnamentPreviewApril’s Ornament Club pattern release was another two-for-one deal, you could stitch them as front and back of one ornament or create two separate ornaments, change the colors up, mix and match to have some fun. Several ornament club stitchers chose to use variegated threads for their ornaments and they all came out beautifully! (pictures coming to the gallery here very soon)

March Ornament Design Stitched by Shaunterria

Shaunterria-Live-Laugh-Love-OrnamentNot only did she finish both versions of the ornament and sandwich them together as front and back, Shaunterria tried her hand at a blanket stitch around the edges ~ and I’d say she did a beautiful job of it too! :)

You can purchase the March Ornament as an individual chart by clicking here.

Stop by Shaunterria’s blog at http://ca11i0pe.blogspot.com/ to say hello and see what she’s stitching. And don’t forget to check out her guest author posts right here on STNA too.

Happy Stitching!

Mini Pumpkin by Jeannette Douglas is Chart of the Week

mini-pumpkin-jeannette-douglas-cross-stitch-samplerI tried to find a thread requirements list online, but couldn’t locate one. You can add the embellishment pack and fabric right from the shopping page, easy peasy. It’s a newer release design, so I’m sure there will be some thread requirements popping up online soon.

I’m kind of in love with pumpkins right now, as happens every October. Pumpkin stitching, pumpkin spice lattes (#PSL!), pumpkin pie, pumpkin cake, pumpkin brownies, and anything else I can add pureed pumpkin to!

Finished Stitching Paisley Pumpkin!

This was the Paisley Pumpkin beaded cross stitch kit from Mill Hill: I did all the beading this weekend, so it’s a finish! YAY!

Finished Paisley Pumpkin

I had all the stitching done when I put away last Fall, but I didn’t have the space at home to sit down and work on the beading at the time. Since we moved I have plenty more space and I thought it would be a nice finish to get me back into the swing of stitching after a lengthy break.
