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?
