September Catch Up

I'm a little late in posting this but better late than never, right?

I participated in a Pumpkin themed exchange over on the Tiny Treasures, too blog. I received my exchange from Melissa last week.

Melissa had stitched this very cute needlebook (over 1) for me when she learned that I had requested something non-holiday related as I was adding pumpkins to my kitchen. So, she also stitched this for me.

She used the same pattern but stitched in my favorite color and made this trivet! This turned out great as I plan to bring in purple into my kitchen also.

Along with my red stitch this month, I decided to knit my pink stitch also. I made this cute little bag that has the breast cancer ribbon on the front.

This was very quick. The yarn I used was a special pink yarn that Michaels and Joanns had as part of a whole display for breast cancer.
