In my post from last week I wrote I wouldn’t post anything autumnish for the rest of this month, but that was when it still looked like we were in the middle of the summer here. But now it’s raining, the wind is blowing around the house and I even saw some leaves falling already, so I guess fall has started here, too. The weather makes me long for orange, brown and red colored stuff, lots of pumpkin recipes and most of all Halloween.
My favorite blog at the moment is Feeling Stitchy; they made me rediscover embroidery. I already found a nice poodle pattern a couple of weeks ago and yesterday I found an adorable Halloween skull garland. I stole the skull pattern and made my own style of garland:
Another favorite blog of mine is TheFreelancer’s Fashion Blog and just now The Freelancer has a give away: an embroidery book! I only know how to make straight stitches and cross stitches, so hopefully I win this book, so I can extend my not so great embroidery skills! If you want to give it a try, too, go here.
