Me again.

I have a couple finishes to show.  As promised, I finished my 13th January Challenge piece... Pumpkin Patch Quilts by Gail Bussi from the September 2010 issue of Cross Stitch & Needlework.

It matches this pillow I made a couple years ago.  I'd have to dig up the details but I'm pretty sure it came from the same magazine but maybe the 2006 or 2007 edition. 
That leaves me with 2 more to complete.  I'm pretty sure that's going to happen, although the urge to stitch some ornaments has hit. 

Today I finished the first block in a year long block of the month....The Great Pumpkin.  Just in the nick of time since the 5th installment of Little Red Barns arrived today.  It's a doozie, too.  (Oh, shoot.  The bird is supposed to have an eye.) 
I will be doing some gift sewing so I'll either have to work it in or just give in to the fact that I'm going to fall behind at the very end. 
Finding any good Cyber deals?  ABC Stitch is having a black Friday sale.  Treat yourself to a peak and order something.  Does anyone buy you stash for the holidays?  If the answer is 'no' go order something! 


  1. Love the pumpkin block Pam. I have wanted to make that quilt ever since the pattern was released. I hope you had a great holiday..

  2. Very cute finish. Kudos on #13...wishing luck in finishing the rest. I love the pumpkin quilt pretty!

    happy stitching...

  3. Nice finishes Pam! And like I really need to order something?

  4. Nice to see your finished Halloween piece, Pam--it turned out so cute. Didn't realize there was a matching pillow to go with it!!

    And that quilt block is wonderful--maybe he could just be a blind crow? I love it how our mistakes or omissions always pop out at us right after we post our photos!!

    Hope you had a nice Thanksgiving :)
