Autumn Finishes

I hope everyone had a great weekend! My arm is a little sore from playing fetch with Mandy at the dog park yesterday. Normally, hubby throws the ball, but he was not here. Guess I need to work on my arm muscles :)

This week I have several autumn-themed finishes. First up is The Apple Orchard by Country Cottage Needleworks. It turned out really cute and reminds me of when I used to go apple picking with my mom as a child. And then making homemade applesauce-yum!

I also finished October by Little House Needleworks. I changed out the Crescent Colour's Pumpkin Harvest for DMC 922. Pumpkin Harvest looked a little pale, and I wanted my pumpkins orange, not anemic looking :)

Lastly, I finished Autumn Band Sampler, and it is now hanging up :)



Thanks for stopping by and have a great week!
