Lots of pictures!

Life's been very busy the last month. Still doing some birthday stuff, took a trip to Nantucket and forgot my camera, stitching with friends and all the normal life stuff. I have stitched, of course. Lets start with my Chessie and Me club piece.
This piece was so fun to do. Nataly attached it to the hornbook for me. Thanks friend. I had Vonna finish the small Drawn Thread piece for me. Her work is wonderful.
She used 3 different pieces of felt and i just love her bows. Thanks Vonna. I love it. I did Thomas and had him framed. He will be a wonderful addition to my Thanksgiving pieces.
He was framed in a simple black frame. I am obsessed with black frames. He is a handsome fellow.
I couldn't wait to do Beggar's Night. I just stuffed him and used orange ric rac for a hanger. He will be a great addition to the Halloween tree.
I had Autumn by Drawn Thread framed. This piece is small, so I used 2 mats and glass with the frame. It really is pretty. Had to get a good pic due to the glare. The frame goes really well with the orange mat. I am currently working on Noel by WTN. I am not a huge Christmas stitcher but i loved this design. It's large but so much fun to do.
Sorry about the wrinkles. I don't iron until I am finished. Love the red house, the deer, the borders! I just love it all. This post is long, so thanks for hanging in with me. I am always slow to start,so I recently discovered Instagram. It's so much fun. I am at cranberrysampling. Let me know if any of you are on instagram. I would love to see your pictures. Thanks for visiting and leaving wonderful comments! Until next time ...... Happy Stitching! Deborah

Vonna Pfeiffer said...

OK Deborah, I'm going to admit something here...
I love your work and I try to keep up with you and what you are stitching and it is impossible. My heaven's I thought I was going to pass on Noel and now that I see it on your blog...well.......
thanks for your kind words about my bows. They are no big deal, seriously. Very simple, if you make an X and wrap thread around the middle and sew it on. You got it :)

Annie said...

Tons of inspiration here. Love everything and Ms Vonna worked her usual magic as well.

Angela P said...

So beautiful and inspiring. Love autumn.

Glenna said...

You stitch the best stuff--everything I'd like to stitch (or already am). We're going to have to beat you though for forgetting the camera on Nantucket--I've been meaning to go there myself for the longest time, but it's so far out there that it's really kind of a pain to get to even from Falmouth since it generally involves a painful drive to Hyannis.

BrendaS said...

Deborah -- It's always so much fun to come to your blog and see all your wonderful stitching and today is no exception -- I LOVE EVERYTHING you did. Your Noel piece is really moving along too!

So glad you are on IG:))))

SewAmy said...

I must stitch Thomas one day, every time I see some one post him...he gets cuter and cuter. I love the Christmas sampler your stitching. It is gorgeous. I am on instagram, I think I am 'following' you on there already, I will need to check. I am "amystitches" on instagram.

Bekca said...

Best wishes.

Everything looks beautiful. You are inspiring! I have ordered the Noel by WTNT. Can't wait to get it but I have 4 Fall/Halloween designs started and 2 more I want to do. Never enough stitching time. LOL

Charlene ♥ SC said...

Looks like your fall/Halloween is all in order. Great pieces and beautifully finished!

Love all your stitching, Deborah! I like that Noel Sampler you are stitching and it looks way better than the photo on the ONS sites! (Thanks for that - now I want to stitch it too!) :-)

I absolutely LOVE the piece you're working on ... but don't know what Noel by WTN is?
Can you tell me who that pattern is by? Do you sell it?

Can you tell me where you got the hornbook? I have a Thanksgiving punch needle it would like to put on a hornbook. I would like to make my own but can not find instructions. I really liked the Noel pattern by Brenda and seeing yours makes me know I have to do it!
