Give Thanks Ornaments and foxy

My new pattern is complete!
Give Thanks - 8 embroidery designs....for ornaments and bowl fillers!
I was really falling behind so badly, but I decided that it is better done late than not at all.
It is in my etsy shop for instant download, so you can work on it immediately....
plus on my website for a printed ad mailed pattern...
plus also on Patternmart.
I just love how sweet the Indian's face turned out...love him!
The pilgrims have their utensils ready!
Watch out Turkey!
It's time to give thanks...
 There are pilgrims, turkeys, an Indian, apple pie, leaves & more!
They make a great gift and look amazing sitting on a little shelf or hanging on a tree.
I have them in a little cabinet here!
These are the latest in my series of embroidery ornaments....
Here are the Valentine, Halloween, Patriotic and Easter.
These are fun stitching up while traveling and watching TV.
Perfect for little pinkeeps and gift toppers too.
 Each ornament has a wool or felt heart on the back.
Isn't he cute?!
I am ready for Thanksgiving!
-----------------------------------------------------
Here is something I have been working on....
It's this fox table mat.....
the design is from the current Simply vintage magazine!
I got out all my wool scraps...
I sewed down the large fox and added big eyes to him.
I love the leaves and berries....it is slowly coming together.
Now it is getting really close to being done...
It is so much cuter in person!
I will post the finished foxy soon!
I have been having the best time making this!

Hope you have a great Wednesday!

Crunching, crinkling, Autumn leaves... freebie

Remember when you were a kid playing with the leaves outside.
Everyday going to school and coming home....I kicked the big puffy leaves...the smell is still in my memory.
We also made outdoor house with leaves....making a layout of a house with leaf borders...so much fun.
This design above reminds me of all the simple fun.
Save and make into a framed stitchery!
*Please note that all freebies are for you to use to make a couple finished goods (no mass producing) and a couple gifts...they are still legally my designs.

===================================================
I painted another snowman painting...just  want to share the steps with you....
First I take a large canvas and cover it with old book pages.
I added a house with pretty papers and started painting my snowmen....making sure to leave some of the print to see through.
I added a walkway from the house to the snowmen.
I added a sky too.
and many hearts....
Here comes a tree and details to the house....like the door and windows.
another tree, details the the house and eyes for the snowmen....
a nose for each snowman and arms....
more snow....
more details with a stabilo pencil....
looking sharper...cute and corny!
and here it is ready...it is similiar to one I painted a few years ago....
but this one has two snowmen and more detail. 
a little shiny in this one,  but very fun!
I am happy!
