Belated October IHSW

Yes, I know, I'm more than a week late in giving my IHSW update. Bad news, I barely stitched so I didn't have anything to show. Good news, I stitched quite a bit AFTER that weekend and guess what? Romantique Sampler is now finished!
Wait, hold your horses and bear with me. Before I show you the completed project, I just gotta show you Part 16 first.
And then Part 21 ^.^
Okay, I'm done torturing you with the suspense as I could hardly contain my own excitement. Ladies and gentlemen, may I present to you Romantique Sampler!
Design: Romantique Sampler
Designer: Angie Designer
Fabric: 32 count White Belfast Linen
Fibers: Hand Dyed Fibers (Examplar Fleckstone & Velvet Midnight series) silk
I started this is February 2011 which means it was stitched over a period of nine months. Now that it's done, I'll definitely miss stitching on it for sure. Then again, that means I'm allowed to start a new WiP, right? :P
On to the second SAL. Here's my iStitch Mystery SAL to date.
That's a cute willow tree. Still having fun with this SAL :)
One last thing, I recently won Hannah's Holiday Giveaway. The package she sent me has arrived.
Now tell me that isn't the most adorable autumn pillow you've ever seen? It's highly hugable as well and I especially love the felt edging. She also included some WDW threads too. Thank you so much, Hannah, for the lovely gift.
Happy Stitching, everyone!
