Harvest Exchange Fun!

It's no secret that I LOVE fall! 

 Fall and winter are my favorite times of the year. And as such, I was excited to participate in Terri's Harvest Exchange again this year. 

Check out my box of goodies from Pat Simon!

Pat told me in an email that this was her first year participating in the exchange. But you'd never know it by looking at the beautiful box she put together for me. THANK YOU PAT! This years exchange was terrific again!

I would like to extend a thank you to Terri at dixiesamplar as well for organizing and hosting the Harvest Exchange! Thanks Terri!

Happy Stitching everyone!

A finish......FINALLY!

Time just seems to keep getting away from me. I'm always thinking "Oh I've got plenty of time to finish that." Only to wake up one morning going "Wait....what happened?!" But the good news is that I finally have a finish to share!  YAY!!

This is a freebie from The Snowflower Diaries called "Haunted House".


I used little tiny orange seed beads around the entire edge. And I have to admit, I had a terrible accident while working on the edging. I keep the beads in the little containers that I talked about in a previous post. As I was setting the open container down I snagged the bottom of the container on the edge of my desk and........


Tiny orange beads EVERYWHERE!  All over my desk! All over the floor! All over ME!

I spent the better part of the afternoon trying desperately to pick up and salvage as many beads as I could before I gave up and left the rest as vacuum cleaner fodder. But I managed to pick up a whole lot of beads though before I gave up.

I've also been working on a little something else. But I can't share that one just yet as it is for the Harvest Exchange being hosted by Terri at dixiesamplar.

Well that's it for today friends. Hope you all have a Happy Friday and Happy Stitching!

Happy Dance!

I love it when I get goodies in the mail! Last week and this week I got packages in the mail. I was lucky enough to be one of the people to get my hands on some of the lovely linen that Terri had for sale over on her site dixiesamplar. When I opened the envelope this is what I found....

All wrapped up with a nice little card. It was like Christmas for me! Thank you Terri for making it extra special!

Here is what was inside the pretty wrapping....

The fabric is just gorgeous! So happy I was able to get some. I will most definitely be ordering more!

Last week I saw Terri had several patterns up on her site as well. I was so excited when I saw she had this one....

"Sleepy Hollow" from The Cross-Eyed Cricket. I've been wanting this pattern ever since I saw it last year. I'm a big fan of the Disney version of The Legend of Sleepy Hollow and this pattern reminds me of that so I knew I just had to have it.

I also got a "new to me" gadget from my hubby. A magnifier lamp! He needed a magnifier lamp with a longer arm on it so this one was up for grabs.

I have to say I had no idea that this could make such a HUGE difference in being able to see what I'm working on!  LOL

Thanks for stopping by and checking out my new stuff!  HAPPY STITCHING EVERYONE!
