November Gifted Gorgeousness SAL (and other things!)

I surprised myself when I saw that my last post was for the Gifted Gorgeousness... has it been that long? Where does the time go? Yikes!

Well, I have one finished flatfold project and one pillow project to share with you... I did my first Hooked On Exchange and I have pics of that. So without further ado, here goes...

This is a piece designed by Maryse, with a few personal changes. I am sending it to my sister to cheer her up and gear her up for Christmas!

And the Exchange piece that I sent:

I had to snatch the picture from my recipient, Marie, as I cannot find my picture of this finish. It was a freebie that I had for a while. Used DMC threads... I wanted it to really pop with fall colors!

And I wanted to play around with bits of wool, so came up with this little bit of fancy!The two buttons were perfect for the piece!

The Exchange piece that I received:

Here is the piece that I received from Rosa -- it is so cute!

Thus ends my Gifted Gorgeousness part of this blogpost... but I have a little more to share!

I finished this Little House Needleworks Winter Sampler... and just have Spring left to do.

I know this is not stitching, but I saw this on YouTube and tried it out... you need lots of pins! And little pieces of fabric... but it will be a great gift for someone!

This is an older piece that I stitched, and had finished at my LNS. I brought it out for display this Fall. I really love the piece, with such a great sentiment. And the finishing is super! It called for blended threads... something that was new to me at that time. Now, of course, we can just use overdyeds! I still have the pattern... it was in a magazine!

Thanks for visiting! Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
