A Small Finish and A Contribution

Cathey at Pumpkin Patch & Co. had her 2nd annual Pumpkin Day celebration on Oct. 21st. She designed a cute little memento for the day which I had to quickly stitch up. It is so cute and goes well with the one from last year.


I stitched this with her recommended DMC on 28ct white evenweave. I put the year on the back as I'm hoping there will be more in future years to come :)


I took part in Cathey's Pumpkin Patch & Co. Breast Fund which she started this year. I stitched this ornament and was really pleased with how it turned out. Believe me it was hard to part with, but an enjoyable stitch so I will do it again in red for myself.

OMG!!!! You are FAST! LOL! I LOVE IT! Not only because I designed it but it actually came out better than I expected :o) Thank you so much Irene for doing this so I could see it stitched up.

Your donation is absolutely gorgeous and I plan on copying you (if you don't mind that is). LOL!
