Oh Dear! More Pumpkins & Fa La La

I am so excited and happy to receive these goodies from Iza aka 5Horizons . This was for the Tiny Treasures Too Pumpkin Exchange.

I really love my Pumpkin Biscornu by The Sweetheart Tree. I have seen this design and was drooling over it, but knew I would never find the time to stitch one for myself.

I also received a beautiful pumpkin coaster and a package of felt balls ( I have an idea how I am going to use them). I forgot to add some orange ribbon to the pic but am going to use it with my ball project.

There were also 7 skeins of hand dyed silk floss that have me itching to use. Four of them are  fall colors, which means more pumpkins. I really enjoyed the post card from Poland.
Thank you so much, Iza.

I stitched up this little pillow while I was watching a movie the other night. It is a small design from the leaflet "House of Halloween" by Trail Creek Farm .

The only black fabric I had other than the dreaded Aida was 20 count Lugana.  I used DMC Floss and it was kind of fun doing some larger stitches and stitching those wonky hearts. I added some french knots to the pumpkin stem cause it looked kind of plain. I also added some buttons to the corner.

I also started finishing my LHN Ornaments of the Month. I have 6 of them stitched but haven't started finishing them into ornaments. This is mainely due to the fact that I am not sure how I want to do them.

Fa La La
LHN Needleworks
30 count Cappucino Linen
DMC Floss Mill Hill Beads
 I made it into a flat ornament and used a beaded twisted cord around the edges. I had purchased some Weeks felt (green) that I at one time thought I would use for backing for all the ornaments. Now I am not so sure as I find it too bulky. I added a red bow but I think I will change it for some twine as soon as I can find some.

I am off to finish up a Breast Cancer Ornament that I stitched up and then if I don't fall asleep I might get some more stitching done.

Love the little pumpkin biscornu you received, Bonnie--beautiful silk floss, too!

Your design on black looks amazing--I just love how anything stitched on black really pops :)

Good luck finishing the rest of your LHN ornamnents...
