What is Lisa stitching this month?
Works in Progress (WIPs)
Sew Blessed by October House Fiber Arts
I love everything about this one! I'm using floss from Classic Colorworks and Weeks Dye works and am in love with the colors! The variegation of hand-dyed floss add so much dimension to the thread spools. I'm stitching on fabric from Fiber on a Whim which is so soft. I love the texture of it.
Gather with Joy by The Blue Flower
I started this one a couple of weeks ago. I thought I could do a few stitches on this sampler and then put it away until I finished one or two current WIPs. 😂 But then I fell in love with it and I can’t put it down! I'm stitching on the same Fiber on a Whim aida with DMC floss. The house is stitched with DMC Color Variations. It's the first time I used it and I am impressed! I'll be stocking up on more colors so I have it on hand to make substitutions.
Purple Pumpkin Patch by ScissorTail Designs
I tried resisting this one because I don't usually stitch anything for Halloween. But, how could I resist those purple pumpkins and black crows? I'll be using DMC floss and 14 count Aida from Wichelt.
Doodle: Autumn by Heart in Hand
In addition to the adorable autumn motifs, this Heart in Hand design has two tiny buttons, which are included with the pattern. I can't wait to add this one to my fall decor.
Frida by Barbara Ana Designs is a tribute to the Mexican painter, Frida Kahlo. It is an older pattern that I recently added to the shop. I chose to add it to my line up because my 5 year old niece recognizes her in pictures and paintings. I hope she'll be excited when this is done and displayed in her house!
Pumpkin Patch by Primrose Cottage Stitches
This was a fun stitch that actually came together pretty quickly. I love pretty much any design with a vintage truck in it, and the pumpkins and scarecrow make me love it even more! I'm hoping to find a frame to finish this one.
October Sampler of the Month by Country Cottage Needleworks
I haven't been stitching this entire series this year, but plan on doing all of them over a couple years. They are easy and quick stitches that feature darling motifs in a band sampler style.
