First Fall Finishes

Hello Friends!

I've pretty much switched over to mostly Halloween and fall stitching right now so I was able to get some of my latest stitches FFOed yesterday.



This first piece is one of Lizzie Kate's Boxers. I thought it'd be a quick, easy stitch and it is... but I have to admit there were some parts of the pattern that I didn't enjoy at all, so as cute as it is, I'm happy its done.



It's finished as a mounted flatfold with some tan and white gingham fabric and edged with handmade cording, a bow and a coordinating button.

STITCHY DETAILS:

Pattern: Autumn Boxer
Designer: Lizzie Kate
Autumn - Cross Stitch Pattern

The second finish is a super cute simple stitch by Luhu Stitches that I finished into an ornament moutned to a small piece of rustic wood.



I mounted the stitched  piece directly to the wooden piece and added twine for the hanger and the cording. Then I just added an orange and white gingham bow with a green cover button.

Lovely finishes - I've not seen the wood backing for a finish before and I quite like it.
