Tis the Season Day 1

Once again Leigh is hosting a "stay crafty @ home" Blog Hop to help keep our spirits high, creatively inspired and busy while celebrating the season safe at home during this terrible pandemic!
This is a 2 month long hop to celebrate Fall/Autumn, Winter, Christmas and Craftmas and the hop ends December 20 at 11:55pm pacific!  

Join in as little or as often as you like...

For more details go to

I will be sharing today's seasonal make on Leigh's info page...


My first make is one that I just finished yesterday - but just right for Fall/Autumn or Harvest...

It is a beaded cross-stitched pumpkin which will end up on the Christmas tree...
The pattern is from Mill Hill Painted Pumpkins MH16-2026 Persian Pumpkin.

Half of those beads were tiny!!

(Rather like my reflection in the door knob...)

Happy Hopping!



  1. WOW... that is beautiful!!!! Love all the colors! I just do not have the patience!

  2. Oh dear, my eyes hurt just looking at those tiny beads! You did a wonderful job and this will look sooo pretty on your tree!

  3. Fabulous beaded pumpkin Susan!
