I shared yesterday on Instagram a picture of my Affirmation Word Wall Hanging that I made a few years ago.
|Still working on adding treasures to this section :)|
I Gave the Affirmation Words away with the newsletters.
These Affirmation words will be available sometime in the future in the Etsy shop as a whole group.
This piece inspired me to make another one but this time it is for Fall.
I used the "Stitch An Inch Fall Ornis" cross stitch pattern and stitched up a few motifs.
I gathered some buttons, small crochet pieces I had and I am on a search for more little doodads in my shopping expeditions!!
So this is a work in Progress but this is what I have to date
Meet "Miss Autumn"
I have a challenge for you,
I CHALLENGE YOU to Create your own Wall hanging made with cross stitching and some of your favorite treasures. But you must use some of the motifs from the chart "Stitch An Inch Fall Ornis".
I will give you a month to complete it....

will decide who the lucky winner is.
You will have to send me a picture by email that I can use to share in Social Media....

......and to start you off I am having the chart "Stitch An Inch Fall Ornies" on Sale for this week only.
This design has 16 Autumn motifs that can be stitched on 28ct over 1 to make them into a one inch design or on 14ct Aida and they will be 2 inches in size.

And Just one more thought!!
In the Spring I am planning to have a small retreat/class and it will be to make a
