Northwinds Week 8 & an Autumn Finish!

LK amongst friends
Two of the four SAL gals had a super busy week & haven't been able to send their pictures yet, but I am going to go ahead & show you Denise's & my own. I also want to show my small autumn finish.....it kept me from cheating & doing more on the SAL...I wanted to finish so bad, but I had done my 2 days, so I pulled this cutie out & did it....
The pumpkins on the front porch are from the lady I babysit for. Aren't they adorable?!?!?!! One of the local sororities makes them each fall. I have always loved them, but have never bought them. She remembered me commenting about liking them. So, meet Mr. Duane & Mrs Shari Pumpkin!!
I am going to stitch a few of these LK charts as individual pieces & have my husband make small frames for them.

Hi Shari! I discovered your blog from Ranae's blog. I can't wait to come back and spend some time; have to go start stitching for the night. I wanted to let you know that the retreat we were on was sponsored by The Inspired Needle from Lemont, IL. Cathy is the shop owner. Worth a road trip!!!

Your SAL piece looks gorgeous. And soon there will be the Happy Dance. When a piece is nearly done I always want to stitch stitch stitch in order to finish is as fast as possible. Good that you had those cute pumpkins to stitch, lol.

Just getting back from vacation in Vegas and trying to catch up with everyone! It looks like the 3 of you are almost all done with your SAL piece! I went to the LNS in Vegas and almost all their models were Halloween themed. The LK Halloween rules were finished very cute! I also commented on Renae's post. Shipsee is only about 30 minutes from me!
