October 2nd and not too late and a Fairy update

Since my kids are not so little anymore, I kind of procrastinate when it comes to decorating or getting into the season.  Today is just October 2nd and I am on the ball!  I already have my fall wreath on the front door and yesterday I added this little stitched item to my living room:

I purchased all 12 of these cute “All Tied Up” pillow shams from Pine Mountain Designs back in 2007 and have only completed January, February, March, and October.  I would like to finish all of them this year so that I can put them out each month next year.  Then I think I will remember to put them out the first of every month instead of remembering mid-month.  The fabrics on these shams are so adorable.  Unlike any fabrics I see in Joannes.

I received my latest Round Robin piece in the mail last week and started on it over the weekend.  So August Fairy has been put aside for the time being, but here is my progress on her so far:

I am at the lower portion of her dress and she is coming along nicely.  I will pick her back up after I finish the block on Johanna’s RR which should not take too long as I have already stitched quite a bit this weekend.  Thanks for stopping by to see what I have been up to.  Happy Stitching!

    1. Thanks, Johanna. I love fall, too. I am loving the pixie I chose for your RR. May have to re-vamp my pixie afghan plans and replace her for another.


  1. What a great idea – a cushion for every month. I can also see what an epic amount of work it would be to make them all!


    1. It really isn’t a lot of work as the sham is already made. All there is to do is stitch the top border. They are really a quick stitch, I just don’t understand why I haven’t done them all yet. Too many other projects got in the way, I’m sure :o)


  2. I love the pillow…so adorable! And the color scheme is fantastic. You’ve truly made some great ;progress on the fairy. I love watching this one come to life.


    1. Thanks, Sue. The pillows are so darling and such a quick stitch. I am going to try to fit the November pillow into my stitching schedule after finishing my current RR and before I pick the August Fairy back up. Thanks for watching this one grow.
