November FNwF

Can it be November?? Already??????? Really??????

It is time for FNwF or Friday Night with Friends.  Stitchers from all over the world "get together" on the first Friday of the month for a bit of stitching.  It's been a couple of months since I have been able to attend FNwF so I have a few things to show you.  At the September FNwF, I was just starting to stitch a fall-themed piece by Little House Needleworks as part of a two-month SAL.  I actually finished two fall-themed Little House Needleworks projects during the SAL.  So let me show you those.

Little House Needleworks Autumn Sampler - I have a small wood tray that I am going to use for "framing" this piece. (Side note - I no longer need this pattern so I am selling it for $5. If you are interested, please leave a comment or email me.)

Little House Needleworks October - This finished piece was "framed" with a 7x7 wood box.

With these finishes behind me, I decided to work on some WIPs for November FNwF.  

A friend gave me this cute pattern that has a wood pumpkin "frame" and buttons for finishing.  
There really isn't a whole lot of stitching.  Here is my progress on this piece....

The kit also includes a strip of floral cotton fabric that goes at the bottom of the stitched area.  I'm stitching this on 36 ct linen using 1 strand of DMC and Sampler Threads.

I'm also working on this cute piece by La-D-Da - Big Red House.

I actually won the pattern (it is signed by Lori M.) several years ago from Norden Crafts' Facebook page.  I had put the pattern away, totally forgetting about it......that is until the "memory" popped up in my FB feed.  I had posted a photo of the pattern after I won.  When I saw the photo, I decided it was time to start stitching it!  I had to search through my ever-growing stash to find the pattern!  I'm stitching it on 32 ct Straw linen from Weeks Dye Works using most of the called for sampler threads.  

Hopefully I will have a finish to post at December FNwF.  I am also working on some Christmas things but those will have to wait until January FNwF to "reveal" those so not to spoil any surprises.  

Alrighty........what are you stitching?


  1. Lovely stitchery projects, there is time to finish one before the next fnwf.

  2. Love them all! You've been busy! I'm not stitching anything currently...just making cards! When are we going to have a craft day?! I miss you!

  3. I just heard about La-D-Da and was looking at some projects there. I really like the ones you are working on, especially the October one.
