since it's fall and all

I know, I know, I'm not ready for Fall yet either and heaven knows there are still so many more Summer days to be enjoyed. 
 But, when it came time to pick colors for some new magnets I thought I might as well work ahead and choose some Fall colors. The top one is called "Sunny October"
And this one I am calling "School Days". Can you believe I tackled my least favorite stitch for this set?? The dreaded satin stitch - yeesh!. I'm forcing myself to do a LOT of it though and I know it will one day become my best friend.

More new things to come, my needle has been hot lately!

These are so fun and simple fall updates, thanks for taking the time to prepare and share.

Okay--so how do I win THIS set? ;-) And are you crazy? I LOVE the satin stitch. Here's a proposal: from now on you send me all your satin stitching, and I'll send you EVERYTHING ELSE. ;-)

Gorgeous colours! And I'm already thinking about Christmas (but not exactly doing anything yet...) I love the satin stitch. Personally I don't like the chain stitch much but I made myself do a some the other day. :)

Sounds like a deal Melissa!

After reading your comment Nicole I think maybe a "least favorite stitch" blog post might be needed. It seems like everyone has one they love and one they HATE. It would be fun to hear what everyone had to say on that topic :)
