Autumn Harvest

A few days ago, i got an unexpected surprise from Shari. This Autumn Harvest chart, she've stitched it earlier and finished it into a flatfold, i left a comment that i love it and will sure add it to my wishlist. Imagine my surprise when i received it on the mail, thank you..thank you so much Shari.

I thought i'll give a break of stitching x'mas themes, which i cannot show any pictures as they are for an exchange and mostly gifts, I started the Autumn chart as you can see here, this was actually a picture yesterday and i stitched a bit just now till i discover that i don't have DMC 936, so i have to wait till monday to go get one in town. I can't change it to another as i had started a bit of that colour and i don't want to frog it.


Since i put aside all the x'mas stitching, atleast for the weekend, i had a look at my WIP's folders and came across this one. Just work an hour of it while watching a movie with Chris. Grace is at one of her friend's place for the night.
The stitching are almost done, so only the backstitching and frenchknots to do and quite lots of them. Hmmmm, not really looking forward to it as it's not my favorites!


Received this box from Vickie for the SFE(small finished exchange) at ILCS yahoo group, which the theme i had chosen was either Summer or quaker theme. Thank you Vickie for this cute stitching and lovely flower buttons on the box.

Thank you all so much for visiting my blog and all the lovely comments over my halloween finished.

You lucky girl Mylene! I saw it on Shari's blog also and thought it was so pretty. :o)
All of your recent stitching is wonderful and you have some great finishing techniques. :o) I manage to get the stitching done but don't get too many actually finished into something.
Hugs, Elaine

That was really nice to have your wish fulfilled. And the box is so pretty. I love that birthday cake design. That's going to be a very nice piece.
