Friday Finishes -or- Cross Stitch Crazy!

 Happy Friday and Happy November!  Autumn has well and truly come this way - yesterday we went for a bit of a ramble around a nearby forest park and lake. the colors are gorgeous and the crisp air was invigorating.

 Now I might have been slacking in the blog posting department, but I have been going a bit cross stitch crazy and throw in some punch needle too! Every spare minute I've been engrossed in creating new pieces for Christmas, my favorite holiday!  I love the reds, greens and white.

This is  an oh-so-cute itty bitty reindeer punch needle pattern by Brenda Gervais


I love Jenny Hoffman patterns and did this one as a tuck pillow~

 and this one but haven't got a frame yet...
 Stacy Nash Winter Woolens tuck pillow~
 And lastly another pattern by Brenda Gervais... it is all stitched and stained but I'm figuring out what way to display it rather than in a frame or as a pillow.

So far so good but there are just too many patterns calling out to me that it's easy to become overwhelmed!

 I'm off then, to start another one!  Thanks you so much for your visit!


  1. Wowza Christine! Your needles must be smokin'!! LOL I'm so impressed by all the stitching you've gotten done and love them all! You did a fantastic job on that reindeer tho'.
    The Emerald Isle looks gorgeous this time of yr!

    I need to get stitching!
    Big smiles coming your way!

  2. Yikes Christine, you sure are churning them out!
    I am drooling over them all-can't even decide on a favourite, they are all so amazing:)
    You are an inspiration!
    Great job on the paintwork-so yummy.
    Have a great weekend. Maybe we need a x-stitch morning to get me going!lol!

  3. wowwwwwwwwwww super cute stitching..
    i love them all so much..

  4. The Fall colors are so pretty. All the leaves are nearly off the trees here and pretty soon we will see nothing but white :) All of your hard works looks beautiful!!

  5. I am so impressed. I am still assembling my Christmas patterns and look at all you have finished. That is awesome. They all look very good.

  6. Hi Christine
    Your stitching is simply beautiful.. We seem to have lost all our leaves over the past week so a lovely carpet of leaves everywhere.. Angi X

  7. Everything is so pretty Christine. I wish I could cross stitch but my eyes won't handle it. Our leaves are gone, just bare trees now waiting for the snow, :)

    Have a great weekend.

  8. Christine, I love all of your Christmas goodies, the finishes are fabulous. I had best get busy. Have a good weekend.

  9. Happy November to you, too. Awesome stitching, Christine. You're such a fast stitcher. The "Reindeer" is really nice, it's so different, too. A really prim way to display the sampler is just over the back of a chair or over the top of an open cupboard door. I've seen those ways on blogs and they look really cute.

  10. Happy Friday Christine.......such cute stitch eery and needle punch,,,,,love them all.......November Blessings Francine.

  11. Wow, you've been busy. I did the needle punch thing years ago and recently pulled my stuff out and could not for the life of me remember how I did
