It is getting rather cool here, of course, not so cool as it might snow but cool enough to realize that soon we will celebrate Christmas and New Year and we must be ready for these holidays.
I made some winter designs and you will see some of them today.
One of my new designs is called "Let It Snow!" I finished it off as a pinkeep, the design will also look nice as an ornament or a pincushion:One more finish is this Bourse. I have wanted to make a bourse in winter colors for a long time, when I saw this fabric in the store I thought that was just what I needed. The bourse looks full, doesn't it? Let's open it and see what is there inside .
This is a new Sewing Set called "Snowflakes", it is not complete yet, two more items will be added soon. Today I present you 4 items from the set:
This is what "Snowflake" Bourse looks like inside:Next goes "Snowflakes" Scissor Fob, front:and back:
This is "Snowflakes" Floss Fob or Tag, front:
and back:And this is a little "Snoflakes" Needlework Case, front:
And this is what the needlework case looks like when it is open:
I also made a beaded Scissor fob which I called "First Frost":

Last month I did not posted a picture of ORT jar for TUSAL. I just came home from my trip and did not do much stitching. Now I can see that pretty many new snips were added and my jar or box is almost full.
In the previous post I showed you some pictures from my trip and a picture of an ancient cross stitch from the museum. And I also told you that I saw some items there and could not figure out the technique in which they were made. Michelle supposed that it could be Ukrainean Merezhkas. I guess this is something different, have a look at these pictures:
Do you have any idea about the techniques?
I also promise to show the pictures of the kittens who frequent our yard. We call them Tiger and Panther. Mother cat doesn't visit them but she taught them not to trust people. When they are hungry they come to us to beg for food but they do not allow to pat them. :-(It's very Halloween-ish, isn't it?
I made them a little tassel to play with, they tore it to pieces in no time!
Some autumn flowers for you:
