End of the Summer Finishes

I am a list maker and goal writer.  I made a list of goals for August and these two cross-stitch projects made the list.  Both patterns are from Stitching with the Housewives.  Both stitched in DMC( the ones listed in the patterns).  stitched with two threads in 14 count Chalkboard black Aida.  
The first one is Yard Sauce.  The second is Hello Summer.  These will be a great to display as small pillows next year.  

These patterns are great for beginners and fast to complete.

Summer Stitching in Iowa

This quick stitched piece is another from Stitching with the Housewives.  The pattern is entitled Sweet Cirn Seeds.  I used 14 count chalkboard black Aida cloth stitching two threads over one.  I used primarily the DMC equivalents listed in the pattern
  The only thing I need to do is finish the sewing at the bottom of the pillow.
