Candy Corn , Pumpkins and a Little Trifle

 Woo Hoo! It is finished! Well at least the embroidery. Happy Thursday, my friends. I finished my the embroidery work that I was working on last week !!!!  Now all it needs is a good pressing and for me to figure out how I want to fully finish it.

 Speaking of fall finishes. I wanted to show you the amazing Fall banner that dear Patricia made for me. Isn't it stinking cute?!!! 

                         

 I knew exactly where I wanted to put it. Draped on my rail fence quilt top that I pieced years ago. The quilt top comes out each fall just to snicker and snide at me for not quilting it , but I still display her anyway. She will receive her quilting one day. Lol. Right now Mrs. Rail Fence quilt top is so happy to be sporting the Fall banner. Thank you dear Patricia. Hugs ❤🤗 

Yesterday I shared my Candy Corn House. I thought it was a cutie patootie  house. - well at least I would live in it if I could. 

Today I wanted to show you my Candy Corn wall hanging that I created with scraps of clothing and Halloween fabrics. 


Super quick quilt for the holiday season.  



It has been awhile since I shared a trifle. This is an itty bitty stitch and is my 1st Halloween trifle. It reminds me of a little sugar cookie. This one is called A Little Jack Trifle and is teeny. 



If you are interested check out the link to the jpg below. 

OOPS . I forgot to write in the directions. I used 1 strand of black to create the mouth and eyebrows.

Have a beautiful day my friends and as always...

Happy  Stitching and Quilting, ya'll

  2. Candy corn? We don't have it here but it looks like a hard boiled sweet perhaps? Or maybe soft in the centre? I know it features heavily in your neck of the woods as a delicious candy.

    1. It is a must have Halloween candy around here. It has a unique flavor - almost like a buttery, marshmallow, vanilla flavor .And amazingly it is not hard but has a softer texture.I can not eat too many of them though. Thank you for the sweet visit, Jenny. Have a great weekend.

  7. Your sweet gift from Patricia looks just perfect draped above your cute fall vignette, Melisa! And your candy corn quilt is almost as cute as your candy corn house--almost! That house is especially darling :)

    1. Oh thank you so much, Carol. I thought it brightened up the quilt nicely. Next year I may hang the banner on the mantel. Both the quilt and the Candy Corn house were both quick pieces to work on. Have a very lovely week and happy stitching.

  8. I was a cross stitcher when I got a quilting book by mistake in the mail. I mean you never saw me without my bars or hoop in my hand. I read that quilt book and that was it - I needed to start quilting! Your projects are so cute! It reminds me that fall really is on its way!
