Lenna received my Halloween fair squares that I stitched for her.
I stitched Homespun Elegance's "Boo Tyme" with one of Nina's Threads called Punk. I thought it turned out pretty cool!
I stitched up a cute little freebie pincushion for my October pink stitch.
This is stitched on 30ct. WDW Almond Bar with Needle Necessities #632. I love how this turned out. Pink with brown is yummy!
I also stitched and finished the new Sampler Roundy from Shakespeares Peddler.
I stitched mine on a piece of 32ct. something from my stash. I used the Weeks as charted except Cherry Wine for Cranberry and I just used black floss. There is no color change in the Black WDW so I don't see that necessary.
I just finished mine as a pincushion and am quite pleased with it.
All of the buttons used in these pincushions were from my mom's button stash.

I do have one knitting finish that I must share. What cross stitcher doesn't love a cool tote bag?
I tried my hand at making a felted bag. Here is a picture after the knitting was done.
And here is a picture after the felting process.
Your knitted piece reduces approximately 30% after felting. This was so much fun and I will definitely be doing this again.
I have an exchange that has been somewhere out there in the mail system for 2 weeks. I sure hope it isn't lost.
