Autumn Wishes. Halloween Wishes.

I'm giving myself a little break today, since I have been working out every day. Sitting in front of my computer, instead of rushing all my projects, I blog hopping, eBaying and daydreaming!

Not much stitching done on my "Autumn Wishes". But what I can show you is the second house was added into the design ~ the red house. There are four houses in this sampler.

I received this beautiful Halloween card and a very cute little owl ornament along with some sweet treats from my secret pen pal! The owl is so beautifully stitched and so neatly done. She also did a perfect job of selecting the backing fabric for this ornament. I just love it! Thank you so much, Lizzy! Since she wrote a return address on the envelope, so I decided to write her a letter.

I hope you have a fun Halloween.

Happy stitching :)

Autumn Wishes looks lovely. Very soft colors.

Super cute little owl ornie. I didn't know people still wrote 'letters'. I'm glad the tradition hasn't completely gone away.

Your cartoon is just too funny!

Have a great weekend!
