Stitched Up

Hurray! I finally got a couple more pillows stitched up!

I must be feeling rather sluggish with this sinus infection and when I was cross stitiching I had to stop every so often because my head would be spinning! Not good!

I used a Country Rustic Primitives pattern but re-worked it in parts to make a tuck pillow.

And the other pillow I finished was this fruit bowl for fall pattern by 'Bits and Pieces by Joan'.
It's made from wool - love the colors and I think most bloggers are ready for fall!

I have these listed on my selling blog if you're interested in purchasing any or if you'd like any of my designs made up for you, I'd be only too happy to oblige!

This is also listed - a multi colored penny mat~

Have a lovely week, friends!


  1. They are all very cute...I love that fruit bowl! I have a pumpkin pillow I have been wanting to stitch up that's similar in design...I need to get busy on it before Fall comes and goes...

  2. So beautiful sweetie!Have a wonderful week!big hugs michelle

  3. Great pieces Christine! I love the rich tones you used in the fruit bowl applique.

  4. Hope you get over your sinus infection quick

  10. Dear Christine, I've missed so much on your blog since I've been sick and before.First, let me belatedly congratulate you on your 18th wedding anniversary. And the needlework on this post is all exquisite. I like the little pillow tuck and the larger pillow, too. Your penny rug is very colorful. Thank you also for the free pattern for the candle mat, and the lovely comment you left on my blog.
    Warm Regards,

  13. Christine, I forgot to tell you two things: I'm sorry you aren't feeling well, either. Sinus problems are
    miserable. They are the worst headaches, too.
    I did a post about you on my blog. If you feel better later, stop by and check to see it.
    Get better,
