Mystery Autumn Stamp SAL - Stamp Borders and Header Freebie

Good morning, Sunshine. Rise and Shine. Can I tell you how excited that I am?!  Today is the 1st part of the Autumn Stamp SAL.  I am sharing the border for the large piece . This is for if you are stitching the stamps as one piece; also included is  the header. If you are stitching them as one piece for ornaments or bowl fillers, then just stitch one stamp on your favorite fabric - this would be a great way to use up some of the scraps of fabric too.  

I stitched my large Autumn Stamp Collection on 14 count  orange dyed aida. The design size is 107 x 132 which on 14 count aida measures about 7 5/8" x 9 3/8" . 

One wee stamp has a design size of 35 x 35 which on 14 count aida would be about 2 1/2" squared. 


I am stitching a bunch of individual stamp borders . I will be turning these individual stamps into bowl filler pillows. 

I stitched all of my borders in DMC 898 , but you certainly can choose your favorite fall colors. 

Look at that teeny crow. 
In my final piece, I  added a few more crows to my header than what is pictured .  They are charted . 


If you are interested in playing along, please check out the links to the jpgs below. 

Many of you know , but I always like to leave this little disclaimer.  

I stitch my little designs for fun and to decorate my home. I feel very blessed by this community and love sharing my little charts, but I am not a professional designer. And I do not have professional software. Thank you for understanding that I  have to put each page on separate links because of the devices I use. I apologize for that.  These are images of the chart  or JPG s and not downloads.   I am always grateful for your kind encouragement , your visits, and for stitching my little designs.

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 Friday' s stitch in the PREP YOUR NEEDLES. 

PREP YOUR NEEDLES FOR FRIDAY'S  STITCH:

 STAMP 1 -

FLOSS COLORS

898, 355, 3345, 469, 815, and 782 

Thank you so much for dropping by to check out this little SAL. I will be posting a quilt update later in the day and linking to several of the link parties that I enjoy visiting; if you have time come back for a visit. Have a beautiful day, my friends. 

As always...

Happy  Stitching and Quilting, ya'll

Melisa

Thank you for the sweet visit.

  13. Melissa, I'm so excited about this Autumn SAL. I have stitched most of your Christmas Stamps series. Which I plan to display on a wood tree shape. I've started your jar series and the saltbox house series. I just can't decide if I want to stitch this fall series as one piece or individual stamps. I wish I quilted too. I just love everything you share in your blog. Thank you for sharing your life and your amazing talents

    1. Aaah Chris, you made my day. I am so honored that you have stitched so many of my designs. Thank you so much that truly means so much to me . Oh that is hard to decide on which to do . You may want to wait and see what they look like and then decide. Thank you again for bringing a smile to my day. Happy stitching.

  14. I'm going to give this a go - I have two other (large) projects going right now, but I think it will be fun to have something smaller to switch up. I love the idea of bowl fillers; I've never done any, but I see so many cute ones on pinterest and instagram that I think it's time to make some :-)
    Thanks so much for doing this!
