Needlework Tuesday: Autumn Progress

Only 100 days until Christmas!  This time of year I tend to increase my stitching hours on seasonal projects.  It's just part of how I personally celebrate the holidays.

I finished the top for this little quilt.  A friend said it looks like a pair of boots but hopefully you can see the squirrels.  Today I play to dig through my bags and bags of batting to find a scrap the right size so I can start quilting it.

My "Mysterious Halloween Town" is coming along.  Still working on the bakery.

So much cuteness.  I love the little trick-or-treater with a cupcake.

And finally my "Whacky Witches" stitchalong is coming along slowly but surely.  I'm very slow at stitching the border.  The little scenes are darling though.  Not sure if this one will get done in time for Halloween this year.

I have Christmas projects yelling at me from my stash.  They just have to wait though.

Linking up today with Heather at Books and Quilts.

Very nice work! Honestly, I thought they were squirrels from the beginning. It took me a good 3 minutes of staring to see the boots your friend saw. Go figure.

I don't do any decorating for Halloween, but your stitching is wonderful!

the squirrels are so cute. I really like the circles for the leaves in the tree.

Great to see your cross-stitch projects. wow, you are so good at them. I have done a few and was so very slow it was almost painful. Looking forward to more photos.

Thanks for linking up with Needlework Tuesday.

I love the idea of thinking about increased sewing/crafting time as a way you celebrate the holidays. I should adopt that mindset and feel less guilty and time sewing!
