August SAL, Tutti Frutti Swap, Christmas Ornament Exchange

Holy Cow!  It's been such a great week.  I've been inspired to stitch several Halloween-themed projects….and - of course - I can't share them with you…YET < GRIN >.

Here's my August Smalls ornament:
It's 4 3/4x2 inches.  I believe it's a free Lizzie Kate pattern, but I can't seem to find it, otherwise I'd gladly provide you a link.

And - oh my - look what the postman delivered from Joelle for the Tutti Frutti, hosted by the lovely MiiStitch.
 The strawberry pattern was designed by Isabelle Haccourt.  (Isn't it beautiful)?  The candies are handmade by monks in Abbaye de Landevennec.  I hope you click over to look at their beautiful abbey and grounds.  It's stunning.  The jelly is handmade, too, in a castle, Chateau de Jallanges.  It's so beautiful!!!  A LNH strawberry pattern and some fabric, as well as a potholder with a cherry motif.  Strawberries and cherries - my absolute FAVROTIES!!  I LOVE IT ALL!!  Thank you, Joelle!!!

And, last but not least, an ornament I received from the lovely Becky as part of the Hooked on Exchanging ornament exchange - isn't it pretty?  The picture doesn't show the sparkling fabric -
And here's the one I stitched for Becky - it's a Lizzie Kate freebie.  Front:
And back:
Well….now back to some halloween stitching….and catching up on several SALs.  I'm  WAAAAAYYYY behind.

Keep yourself surrounded by stitches ~ Cheers ~
