Fall exchange and a finish

Hello dear friends and followers,

it's been a while since I last posted here, but now there are a few things I can show you.

I took part in the Halloween/Fall Exchange at Stitch, Create, Exchange and here is what I received from my partner Lynda:

 So many lovely goodies, thank you so much, Lynda! The scented candles brought the smell of fall to my house and I already have plans what to stitch on the wonderful hand-dyed piece of fabric. Here is a close-up of the cute pillow she stitched for me, isn't it gorgeous?

I stitched for Kay, who chose to receive a fall themed package and when I browsed through some old magazines, I found this lovely design which I adapted to fit the little heart-shaped hanger I had in my stash:

Stoney creek, "Share the harvest"
I am currently stitching for a small local Christmas market where I will have a small stand for presenting my stitching. This is the second time I am planning to do this, I really enjoyed the experience last year and hope that it will be as much fun this time. I managed to finish the biggest design I will offer for sale, you may recognize it from my IHSW posts. May I proudly present: Lizzy*Kate "6 Fat Men"

Here is the front
I used some left-over hand-dyed felt from WDW for the back

The felt back gives a really wintery feel to the cushion and I think that the color of the back and the fabric I stitched on go together very well. What do you think? I shall not be too sad if nobody would buy this cushion, I already know the perfect place for it in my own home... ;-)

I had a quite nasty cold during the last few days which is why I decided not to joint IHWS this time, as I had not been sure if I would get done any stitching at all. Fortunately it was not that bad, I finished two fun Christmas cards, which I will show you next time.

I hope you all have a wonderful week!

  3. Hallo Silvia !
    Danke für die lieben Worte in meinem Blog. Ich wohne ja in Oberösterreich nahe der Deutschen Grenze. Ich habe derzeit aus dem Stickbuch den Elefant in arbeit. Ja Afrika ist auch ein Reiseland von mir und meinen Mann . Ich war schon 2 mal in Namibia und mein Mann viel öfter. Dein Weihnachtspolster gefällt mir sehr gut. Ich wünsch dir viel Erfolg am Weihnachtsmarkt . Ich kann mich von meinen gestickten Sachen leider nicht trennen. Das geschenkte Kisserl ist wunderschön .
