Fall Stitching Update

We're nearing the end of October so it's time for a Fall Stitching Update from the Chicken Ottoman Empire!

I have one finish to report...
Welcome Knocker
by Bent Creek

This came in a kit with the fabric and fibers and some wonderful instructions to make a "door knocker". I suspect the dogs would try to eat it if I actually hung it on a door knob so I'll find someplace safer once I have it all neatly put together!

I didn't take a picture (because me, my laptop, and camera are upstairs and my stitching is downstairs...) but I am soooo close to finishing Acorn Hill! I thought I was done until I noticed I never stitched the fence in front of the house. It's roughly the same color as the linen so my eyes tricked me into believing it was done. It's just a matter of sitting down and gettin' 'er done now.

Still in the Q-snaps is Autumn from Blackbird Designs...
I love working on this project but for some reason it seems to go super slow. And I'm doing what I would consider the easy part! There's a couple of pumpkins and a little house to the left of the bird that I dearly want to work my way over to so I will keep plugging along on this one!

Another thing I would love to find some time for is finishing!
I pulled out a stack of fall finishes from years past and need to get to work making them into something to display. Preferably before the end of next month!

Another busy weekend is upon us but hopefully I will return on Monday with another finish to report!

It looks like you have some lovely projects awaiting finishing. I love the one on the gingham linen. I haven't tried that yet, but it is adorable.
