~*Sharing Some Stitchin's*~

Hello Dear Friends! I've got several goodies I wanna share with you today... all crafy too!

My dear friend Lori has been punchin' a huge flock (or would that be herd?) of sheep!

She does a show each Fall where she offers the most spectacular hand~dids. I sure wish I lived closer to Michigan so I could see 'em in person... and buy! Lori used my ~*Symple ~ Herb Filled Sheep Ornie*~ pattern to make these. Aren't they just darling? She used match sticks that she painted black for the legs, hand stitched the backs, and then added a hanger to each. I just LOVE how she used different floss to add yet more variety. Awesome! She is gonna sell out fast ~ isn't she?

This darling, Halloween pillow was stitched up by Kathy (no blog or online album). Kathy has done a great job with her stitching and her display. What a great lil' Halloween treat indeed! The pattern for this ditty is one of my freebies... ~*Boo Jack*~ Cross Stitch Chart. I also offered this as a freebie doodle to use for needle punch, rug hooking, or whatever your desired medium.

This next ditty was stitched up by Susan (no blog or online album). Susan will be offering her delightful wares at Lori Brechlin's... aka Notforgotten Farm upcoming gathering. (The gathering will be held at Lori's shop on September 19th. To get more information for the gathering ~ click here.) Susan stitched up this pillow with inspiration from my ~*School Girl Pocket*~ pattern. She stitched on orange prairie cloth, filled it with rags (clean I'm sure!), and added a lil' decoration of a bow with black & white beads. This has become a great display piece for Autumn. Wonderful, Susan!

~*~*~*~ I'm editing to add... I just found out that Susan has an Etsy Shoppe that she will be offering her fine ditties on soon. She said after Lori's show, she will be adding goodies up for offering. You might want to mark her shoppe as a favorite & plan to visit soon. Her shoppe is called Olde Threads. Great name huh? :) ~*~*~*~

You can see my pattern offerings at my Etsy Shoppe if you are interested. Also, remember my freebies are all in one spot too... just click here.

What have I been craftin' on you might ask? Well, I have more naked dollies...

I probably should get away from the computer now & get them dressed!

Warm smiles to you all...
