Seasons of Chessie--Harvest Time

I have been busy the last couple of days so get comfortable because this is going to be a long post.

First of I started and finished my Seasons of Chessie Kit that I received awhile back. 

This is a club I joined from The Old Mill Stitchery
 shop in Missouri.

 Seasons of Chessie by Chessie and Me--Harvest Time.
Stitched on 32 count vintage sand dune with overdyed threads
provided in the kit.  Mounted on wool felt and a hornbook.
Started 10-23-2013
Finished 10-30-2013
 Here is Harvest Time and Liberty Inn.  These are the first two kits I have received from 
the Seasons of Chessie Club.
 Next up are the two birth samplers that I have had stitched for a bit.  These two samplers are for 
our two newest grandchildren who were born last year.  Everleigh Joan was born October 29, 2012
and her cousin Charles David was born exactly a month later on November 29, 2012.
This sampler is from The Drawn Thread.  I like this sampler as it is a nice heirloom design.
 Here is a close up of Everleigh's.

 And here is Charlie's.

 So of course I had to stitch them each a Christmas Stocking.
Both of these stockings are from Bent Creek.

 This is the fabric I used for the back of each.

 This is just a picture of the hangers I use for the stockings.
They are for curtains.  I think they work pretty good for the stockings.

 I found this Blackbird designs freebie all ready to be finished while I was looking for another project.
I had it all sewed together.  It just need to be stuffed.  So I did that real quick.

 Now that I am trying to get some WIP's finished I pulled out this Blackbird Designs project--Christmas Garden.  I am going to try to stay on task and finish this before I start another one BUT 
no promises!!!  

My Prim Sisters Club kit arrived today.  A Pocket for Potions by La D Da.
One of the many reasons why there will be no promises on staying on task
with my Christmas Garden!!!

Thanks again for stopping by and Happy Stitching.

Oh and Happy Halloween:)
