Mystery Autumn Stamp SAL - Stamp 3 - Raking Leaves Stamp Freebie

Good morning, sweetie pies and Happy Sunday. Oh, boy do we have a big job today. Grab your garden gloves and meet me outside by the old walnut tree. I have the rake. We have  loads of leaves to clean up.  ๐Ÿ๐Ÿ‚๐Ÿƒ๐Ÿ‚๐Ÿ๐Ÿ‚ 
Nah! not really , but I will need your help come October so bring those gloves then. ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿงค 

Have you guessed it? Today's stamp is called Raking Leaves

Red , yellow , orange and brown- 
Leaves are falling all around.
See them dance 
In the cool fall air.
Rake them and pile them 
And bag them with care. 

I was sorta chintzy with my fabric on my pin pillow and cut it a bit short so it is not exactly the same size as the others but that's ok. 

My little dough bowl is filling up . Here is Basket of Apples, Crows and Sunflowers and now Raking Leaves.


Click here for Raking Leaves. 


Sometimes I have a number of needles threaded with different floss colors so that I can pick them up quickly and stitch. It certainly  makes the piece go quickly . So I thought I would tell you the floss colors that you will need for tomorrow's stitch in the PREP YOUR NEEDLES. 


898, 815, 919, 921, 3345,  712, and 310 

Three down and 7 more to go. Should I give you a hint about tomorrow's stitch? Hmmmm! Oh yeah , I will. It involves LIFTING . So let's flex those muscles. We can't be too tired after raking leaves . ๐Ÿ˜€

I hope I will see you tomorrow , friends. Well wait! Hey, it is Sunday and that means , I have to share my slow stitching for the day. So by golly, I think I will be posting for a 2nd time later today. Lol. If you have a chance stop back by for a visit and then see what others are up to in the link parties that I will be joining.  Now grab your needle there is leaves be stitched .Eeeh! As always..

Happy  Stitching and Quilting, ya'll


Thank you for the sweet visit. 

Every leaf speaks bliss to me, fluttering from the autumn tree.   Emily Bronte

Aug 6th post-  INTRODUCTION 


  1. This is darling! Living in FL, we see very few colored leaves so this is a sweet reminder of where we used to live (IN). Heavy lifting? Hm. Bales of hay? Blessings

    1. Aaah thank you so much, Donna. Well I guess you do not see all of the fall leaves, but how wonderful to live where it is warm most of the time. Our leaves usually fall off from the heat . Sometimes we have some pretty colors though. Hugs

  2. so cute. I am enjoying your SAL. Can't wait for tomorrow

    1. I am so honored that you are stitching along. That means so much to me. I am so happy that you are enjoying it. Have a great week.
