Opus Gluei - Autumn Harvest

The lovely Deena over at OPUS GLUEI has challenged us to use something from the Autumn Harvest in our creations this time. I was trying to decide what to do when I happened upon these lovely crochet framed embroidery hoops on Instagram. I thought, hmmm, I can do that. Famous last words, right? Except this time it worked!!!

 I had this Halloween embroidery that I stitched a couple of years back. It never quite felt complete. I grabbed that little beauty and started stitching with my hook and yarn. 

I think it's finished now. Don't you!

Now it's your turn to show us over at OPUS GLUEI your project using an Autumn Harvest.

September Finishes

September was a physically challenging month for me. I felt like I was being held back from my creativity. Turns out I really wasn't. I just had different creativity. 

The mug and the matching rug were sent to a swap partner.

The mug rug and mug cozy were sent as angel gifts to a different swap partner.

I have since finished the cross stitch sampler and will post a picture of that in the next couple of days (or so). 

And the crochet framed embroidery you can learn more about in my next post.

Handwork sure takes a lot longer than the machine. BUT I like the results, so it makes it very worth while to me. 

I also made some bee blocks that I don't have pictured here. You can see those on my Flickr account HERE.
