Cross Stitch Pumpkins, the more the better.!

Hi Sweeties,

Back again this time with a cross stitch finish. Anyone who knows me, knows that I just looooove Pumpkins.! I love collecting them and displaying them for Autumn and Halloween and I especially love to stitch them.!

Have been meaning to stitch this one for ages now. It is a Sanman Original Design called 4x Pumpkins, and I have stitched it using my own hand dyed fabric and flosses.

I will either finish this one up as a no sew cube or make it into a small pillow. If only I could find some fabrics with Pumpkins to go with it, it would be perfect but sadly I havent been able to find any here in Australia.

Oh well, off to finish up some other Halloween Stitching.!

Hugs and Stitches,

Susi xoxo

Cookie Jar for Pink Saturday

Hi Sweeties,

Hoping you are enjoying this lovely Pink Saturday this week. Here in Frankston, Victoria, we are having some lovely showers. My favourite kind of weather to sit in my comfy armchair and stitch to my hearts content.!

For my post for this weeks Pink Saturday, h0sted by Beverly at How Sweet the Sound, I want to share with you this adorable Pink House Cookie Jar..!

I was lucky to have found this sweetie at my local Oppotunity Shop a few months ago. Now this is the kind of house I would dearly love to live in one day. Not sure if its a School house or a Tea room as it has both St Columbia School on the front and then Tea above the door.?

Side view of the Cookie Jar.And the back view.

Now I just have to bake some yummy pink cookies to fill it up with. lol.!

Actually had some other pink goodies to share with you but Blogger isnt letting me up load photos tonight. Oh well, will just have to keep.

Hugs and Stitches,

Susi xoxo

My First Pink Saturday Post & Embroidered Heart Ornament..!

Happy Pink Saturday..!

Well after a year of oogling over the Pink Saturday posts, hosted by Beverly at How Sweet the Sound, I have finally decided to join in the fun.

So for my very first Pink Saturday post I want to share with you the little treasure that not only started me off on my seriously Pink Collection, but also my love and collection of Porcelain Roses.

I bought this little vase when I was 9 years old. I saw it when my Mum and I went antiquing and just had to have it.! I remember I spend an entire year of my pocket money, birthday and christmas money to buy this but didnt care.

It measures about 6" in height and is perfect condition. Sadly it doesnt have any markings on, so I do not know who its made by

Dont you just loooove those beautiful pink roses..? Ahhhhh....

I also would like to share with you my recent Embroidery finish. And since it is also Pink, what a great day to show it off.!

Its a dear little Heart Ornament with Pink Bullion Roses on it. I did the Tatting edge around it and thought a row of pretty cream pearls would complete it.

Used some pretty pink fabric with tiny rose buds for the backing.

Am really happy how this turned out and think I will be making some more soon.

Hope you all have a perfectly pink saturday..!

Hugs and Stitches,

Susi xoxo
