What is Lisa stitching this month?

This month I am working on a combination of Autumn and Christmas projects. Here is what I have going for November:

New Starts

I love the classic Christmas characters and colors in this piece.  The squares can be stitched as one piece as shown or as three separate pieces.  I am stitching it as one piece, using the suggested Classic Colorworks and DMC floss, on Lambswool 16 count Aida from Wichelt. 


Pansy Patch Manor is a four part series - one for each season of the year. I will be stitching this one with a combination of Classic Colorworks, Weeks Dye Works, Gentle Art, and DMC floss. I haven't picked my fabric yet, but am thinking of Mushroom Lugana from Zweigart.

Works in Progress (WIPs)


This is a smaller pieces, finishing a little over a 4-1/2” square when stitched on 28 count fabric. I am using DMC floss and Mushroom 28 count Lugana by Zweigart.

I started Frida, a tribute to Mexican artist Frida Kahlo, for Hispanic Heritage Month.  The bright colors in the piece are a nice change from my typical stitching. I am using DMC floss and 14 count Jobelan Aida from Wichelt.

I started this design a while ago and then it got set aside and buried in my pile of WIPs. I was able to add the patterns to my shop this week so I decided to pull it out and start working on it again. There are three patterns in the series and each one has two square designs. I am stitching all six squares on one piece.

Recent Finishes

There are two designs included in this pattern. I only stitched one. This has been a popular pattern. And there is now a companion pattern in my shop: Purple Pumpkin Pin Keeps.

I love how the red, pinks, and mauve blended in this piece. I loved stitching this piece.  It was stitched with a combination of Classic Colorworks and Weeks Dye Works Floss.

I really enjoyed stitching this sampler. I had a hard time putting it down. It is stitched with DMC and DMC Variations floss. I am planning on having this one professionally framed.

Follow me on Instagram or Facebook to see my progress on projects throughout the month.  If you are stitching along with me on any of these, tag me @great.lakes.needleworks.  I love to see what everyone else is stitching!
