My Autumn Mantel & Two FFOs

I’ve finally decorated for Fall, and I put some finishing touches on two finished pieces.

Weekend Finish

img_2849It’s been quite a while since I’ve had a finish (cross stitching or knitting). I consider myself to be a slow stitcher, so I’m happy that I have this one to add to my “to finish” pile. I started this project Friday afternoon and just finished (Sunday afternoon).

All the details:
Barbara Ana’s “Sweeping the Garden” from Punch Needle & Primitive Stitcher Magazine (Fall 2017) | Stitched 2-over-2 on 32 ct Zweigart linen in “Winter White” colorway | DMC colors (used a mix of called-for colors and my own picks)

I’m not sure how I’ll “finish” her yet (I’ve named her Tabitha by the way). I know she’s supposed to be for Fall decor, but I think she’d be perfect to have around all year. I have a huge pile of finishes that I need to frame or craft into some sort of display so I can finally have a home that looks like a stitcher lives here.

Happy stitching!

Picking out colors for a random weekend start: “Sweeping the Garden,” by Barbara Ana Designs (Punch Needle & Primitive Stitcher magazine, Fall 2017).

Bought this magazine so I could learn punch needle, but I’m still waiting on my hoop.
