Completed Some Finishing

I participated in the HOE Autumn exchange and had the pleasure of stitching for Edgar.  Here is what I  stitched of for him…

 2015 HOE Autumn 
Fabric: 32 count linen

I decided on a needle book finish for this piece…

And what did I receive?

I received this beautiful Autumn exchange from Maggee…

2015 HOE Autumn Exchange
Stitched by: Maggee S.

This is such a great design and a wonderful finish.  Maggee used wool in the finishing of this little pillow, something I have never done but will try in the future.  In addition she stitched these tiny little buttons on the back, so cute!

Thank you, Maggee!

My work on Black Horse Inn was minimal this month.  Actually, I pulled it out a few nights ago so that I could post on this months Gifted Gorgeousness progress. I stitched the small roof section, that all!

What kept me from stitching on Black Horse Inn?


I purchased three boxes at Hobby Lobby and stitched these three designs to mount on the top…

I attached this cute acorn charm to the corner…

In addition, I stitched/sent Christmas ornaments for two exchanges plus I "angel stitched" an autumn design for a fellow exchanger. I'll show pictures of those when I know they have been received. 

Thanks for stopping by…
Until next time…

What a great exchange piece you stitched for Edgar and you received a fabulous piece from Maggee. I really like your autumn boxes. Where did you get the sweet acorn charm?

Vickie said...

Oh Marie, such lovely work! Those boxes are great!

Melissa said...

What a lot of gorgeous stitching, Marie! You've been busy!

Elfie said...

You have been busy! Your autumn boxes are very sweet, and such a lovely idea.

Carol said...

Your needle has been flying this month, Marie! Funny, but I just finished stitching the Give Thanks freebie for a friend last week, too! Your finish is so nice--mine is just one of my basic pillows.

And those boxes--wow! I'm sure the recipients are thrilled with them. That little acorn charm is especially pretty.

Hope your November is going well and Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family!

Both the exchange pieces are lovely. I really like how you finished yours.
Oh my finishing stitching on top of boxes..I don't think i will be able to do that in next 20 yrs ..ha ha

Maggee said...

You have been VERY busy! So many lovely pieces! I like them all... Glad you liked the exchange piece. I always worry and fuss about the finishing...Hugs!

Brigitte said...

Both exchange pieces are really beautiful, just as beautiful as the respective finishing.
Oh Marie, I love the three boxes you made for your friends. They will be thrilled. And all three also qualify for the Gifted Gorgeousness SAL. Great job!
