Stitching and Gus

A stitching finish...

This was the first of four autumn smalls from the October 2015 Just Cross Stitch magazine. I plan to do little pillows for a basket with them. This one struck me as the September piece of all of them where the leaves are just beginning to turn colors. I didn't think the picture did it justice. The coloring in real life is really pretty. I have some really pretty leaf fabric, and I am going to give that cording thing a whirl this week. 

I did finish the other two things from last week that I was fretting over. 

I think I am going to find a place for this one in my sewing room.

This one just got a backing from the red fabric. I decided that was enough.

Now ---- puppy pictures. 
Everyone can be cheered up from sleeping puppies. 

He is just as cute awake. He is such a happy puppy. Plays hard and then just collapses.

Hope you enjoyed the sweetness,


  1. Cant wait to see all your autumn smalls. I started Barnyard Christmas by Prairie Schooler that I plan to take to Grimmwood. Love your finishes...isnt it fun to be able to finish them yourself and save some $$$$. That Gus almost makes me want a dog. I better get off this page!!

    1. I am enjoying the little seasonal pieces without the expense.
      Gus is so sweet, Arlene. I think I got lucky and got a good one. He is so happy and been easy to train thus far. They are a lot of work, that is why I knew I couldn't do it much later in life. At that point, this dog lover will have to enjoy grand-dogs. Lemony is taking to him as well.

  2. Gus is a cutie. Glad that Lemony is adjusting to the pup. Congratulations on your finishes -- the fall piece and the finished in final form ones! I look forward to see the other fall smalls that you stitch up.

    1. Thanks Robin. I started a new fall piece last night. This one is sunflowers.

  3. Cuteness overload with that little fellow! Don't you just love the way puppies stretch out when they sleep?
