Black Friday...

I am going to post one of my oldest, most wanted, coolest, 1988 patterns that I never gave up on starting.  It is called Pumpkins at Dawn, and had so many 3/4 and 1/4 stitches with mixed thread ever!!  Only 3"x 4" mounted on foamcore paper, I display it on an tiny easel.  Why didn't I use overdyed thread?  I just didn't think about it at the time.  Next time, oh yes.  Anyway, I finished it, and still love it.  So it will be my Black Friday contribution. The magazine was The Country Stitch monthly Oct. 1988 and does not give a designer's name for this pattern.
Now I actually did purchase a few pieces of floss today, but mainly visited with my girlfriend and baked a few goodies.  I want to show you my new Christmas ornaments that are cross stitched themed.  They are empty plastic pieces, that you can fill with anything that fits.  I am putting my ORTS (old ragged threads) and some other sewing bits.

 I also collect vintage salt cellers, so this is where some of my threads end....
That's all for today, will chat more later.  Off to stitch again, Kathy
