October Joyful World

Hi friends! I finished the October Joyful World SAL. I really love the colors in this one.
I stitched this one over one on 25ct cream linen with DMC and VMSS 1795 Halloween Orange. I did stitch the B5200 two over one to make it pop on the cream linen. I changed the snail a bit. I did not want to stitch up the shell in black and white, so I stitched it in white and  DMC 167. I also put in 931 in place of B5200 in the corner flowers in the border.
I still do the drawings for the giveaways the old fashioned way. ;) I write everyone's name down, cut them up into little strips, fold them, mix them up and this time I had Madeleine pick the winning name.The winner of the Shepherd's Bush Fob Chart is BEA!  Bea dear, would you please email me your postal address?

I will have a giveaway of another chart next week.

We have been having nice, cool weather here. So I presently get headaches from direct sun or using the oven. Kinda hard for moms to avoid that. ;) I am able to bake again. I just open the kitchen windows wide and turn on the ceiling fan.
Thank you so much for your kind comments my friends. I cherish the friendships we have made. I do hope you have a wonderful weekend. I am off to find a new stitch! I actually do not have one kitted up or even planned!

Stitching and praying,
Vickie

Your Joyful World finish is very pretty. I have been printing those out, intending to stitch them, well, someday. As I see them stitched on various blogs and Facebook pages, I am pretty inspired. The bread looks amazing. Take care of yourself and enjoy the cool weather.

This hedgehog is very cute indeed and they seem much more adored over the puddle than here in the states! Your bread looks yummy too. We're having cooler weather too so I just had to bake bread and a zucchini cake, oops. :)

Congrats to Bea~ :D

Bea said...

Oh my goodness, I'm shocked! Thank you so much.

Love the October stitch. I have a good friend who has had a series of pygmy hedgehogs as pets. They are actually kind of cute, but not much good for snuggling! lol

So sweet, this month's little animals, aren't they? So good to read that the heat is gone now at your place. And the solution you found for the time you are cooking and baking must be a relief too.

HI Vickie -

I have finally taken the time to stop for a visit with your blog. Your flowers are lovely and your stitching is fantastic. I hope you are well and that you get to bake lots of goodies in the cooler weather.
We are still waiting for the cool weather to hit North Texas, it is taking it's time.

Happy Stitching!!
