Happy Fall!

Hello Friends!

It's been busy in the studio these past few weeks. This time of year always seems to sneak up on me but I'm doing my best to manage Halloween, Fall and Christmas as best as I can -- even though it's still breaking 100 here in Phoenix! 

In preparation for fall -- even if I don't have my New England leaves this year -- I started bringing out the apples, pumpkins and scarecrows, starting with my September Cottage of the Month.


Pattern: September Cottage of the Month
Designer: Country Cottage Needleworks

Then I FFOed my Prairie Schooler rooster into a small rustic whitewashed box. 

It's mounted to the front and edged with some blue cording. Then I just added a red and white gingham box with a blue floral center. I'm not the biggest fan of stitching on black, but I do like the farmhouse look it gives to stitching so I'm glad I did it.


Pattern: Signs of Spring (rooster)
Designer: Prairie Schooler

I also made a ton of custom order Halloween gift tags and then FFOed some items for my stitchy friend Robin.

I find it very hard to send her items back to her --- especially the "Birdhouse" ornament. The color fabric she chose compliments her stitching perfectly.

Oh Alissa, I love your rooster finish. It looks super on the black fabric. Your September cottage looks good as well. I can't thank you enough for your incredible finishing. Enjoy the rest of your week!
