Calendar Poodle SAL

Thursday, October 31, 2019


Hi friends! I am sitting here drinking my chai latte watching the snow come down sideways.🌨️We have a few inches on the ground and expect a few more today. Blech.

I have totally forgotten to share a finish with you. It is the finish I have for the October pedestal stand🧡🍁 And here it is the last day of the month!
This is A Very Merry Autumn by JBW Designs stitched two over two on cream 30ct linen with my own choice of floss: DMC 4140 and WDW Cinnabar.

Today is our oldest son, Jacob's birthday. He is 25! I have been stitching him a gift. I have it completed. I will share it next time, after I have given it to him.😊

I will now start a small baby sampler. This is for a young couple that are friends of Jacob's. I know them slightly. This is their first child. A little boy!👶

Delight yourself also in the Lord, And He shall give you the desires of your heart.  Psalm 37:4

Thank you for stopping by today! I look forward to your visits with me. I hope you have a wonderful weekend my friends!

Stitching and praying,

Hi Vickie! I love your finish for October in the pedestal stand. Well done on your thread combo! Happy birthday wishes being sent to your son, Jacob. It is drizzly here and is supposed to be stormy later.

Vicki said...

Great finish for October. I don't remember, did you order that pedestal stand or find it in an antique/thrift shop?

I just realized the squiggles of the acorn are words! Very pretty!

Happy Birthday to Jacob. 25 is such an awesome age. Love your stitchy finish. Snow? Yuck! I refuse to be part of any of that! Nope, not having it. I've waited all Summer long for it to get Fall and I refuse to step right into Winter! Stay warm sweet friend. ((hugs))

The acorn is so sweet in the pedestal. You can send the snow my way is the last day of October and 79 degrees here today!!! UGH!!!

Barb said...

I hope Jacob has a wonderful day. I love your acorn. I knew it was a JSW. I have done a few of those designs, a Christmas tree and the owl. I love watching the little motifs come to life!

Hello Vickie,
Snow? Here it is cold outside and sunny. I don't need snow.
A lovely little finish and the two squirrels are very cute.
Happy Birthday to your son and have a nice celebration.

Happy Birthday Jacob :-)
I love your pedestal frame, it's a great way to display seasonal stitching.
I bet the snow is prettier to look at then the horrible rain we keep getting, we had some sun yesterday but it's horrible and wet again today :-(

Marilyn said...

What a cute finish, Vickie--love it on the pedestal! I'm sorry about the snow, though. I hear we may be getting some ourselves on Thursday :(

Lovely Acorn finish. I knew it was a JBW before you said, I love their designs.

Oooh, snow, I love watching it snow! The mess afterwards, not so much.
A lovely finish for October, I guess too late to add a few snow flakes?!
Happy Belated Birthday to Jacob and how sweet of you to stitch a sampler for his friends.
