This little hedgehog looks at home among the falling leaves. I hope the little guy stays nice a warm! Talonsaiguilles created this adorable fella and is offering it up for free. While this pattern uses fall colors, I bet you could stitch the leaves and the hedgehog to fit your personality. Wouldn’t this be the cutest on a fall wreath or door hanger? Maybe you could do a whole animals theme!

]]> cross stitchI have always wanted to dye my own floss but I was so scared that I would ruin my floss. No time like the present to concur my fear and jump right into the process. Believe it or not, it is super easy and you can’t mess it up. It is fun to play with colors combos and see what happens. I created these colors for fall, They remind me of candy corn and fall leaves.

Have you ever stitched with LED lights before? I have always wanted to try but the process seems a little overwhelming to me.  Sure, I can change a light bulb but adding lights to something I stitched? What if I mess it up? I’m scared!

I am so glad that Rebecca at Hugs are Fun did this great guest blog post and tutorial for working with LED lights. It is so refreshing that she gave real advice about the entire process.

BigGirlPantiesOh my goodness! I have said this way too many times. It is my go to phrase when people need to get it together and press on. Sue Hills Designs created this freebie for the ladies and one for the boys, “Put on your big boy shorts and deal with it.” For some reason, I think this would be great for an office cube or maybe a sassy  his and hers wedding present. Is that evil of me?  Anyhoo..,I think I will stitch this up for myself, so I can remember that when the times get tough, I need to put those panties on and deal with it.

You can find this pattern, as well as one for the boys, HERE.

HalloweenTopiarySo I am a little obsessed with Halloween. Don’t judge.  I can’t help it, I love everything about it. The candy, the pumpkins, scary movies, dressing up. All of it is so much fun! I was very giddy this morning when I found this cute little Halloween Topiary from DMC in my inbox. The ghosts dancing around the topiary is just too cute and the little black cat at the bottom is the icing on the cake.
