No progress to show

I've been working on another model so I don't have anything to show....well, not entirely true...guess I could go and pull out my traveling project which I have been working on also...but I think I will wait and post the finish when that happens. It was to be a SAL but I sure haven't been seeing any other posts about this By Gone Stitches Quaker Virtues piece. ;(

Happy New Year

Well, it was a new stitching kind of year for me.....starting a new work from home positiion and learning to reschedule 'my time'. I did less stitching or at least had less finishes than normal....39 for the year and quite a few were tiny pieces.  Either way they are finishes and I am glad to have them.

Hope you all have had a good start to 2015....end of this year and we will be equal distance from 2000(which doesn't seem that long ago) and 2030 which seems far away. ;)

I just late last night put in the last stitches on this piece...it's over 1 on 28ct. The gold doesn't show up in the picture as nice as it really shines.

It's the Sweet Simple things

Here is my current wip. I'm doing this for a friend who has a whole wall of all sorts of beautiful crosses and I think this will go nicely.

over 1 on white(looks blue here)

I wanted to do something quick after working on a couple of commissioned pieces. So I pulled out this Lizzie Kate boxer and whipped both pieces up in no time.

I'm home today so taking advantage of my down time. I happened upon a box of finishes that I started lacing and am working on them. I've got 8 laced and 4 pinned.  All have frames but I need to either paint or restain them to go with the pieces.

Here are 2 progress pictures as well as 2 finishes. I've hit the 3rd side on this one...soon will move to the last 4 pages which are half the size of the others.

These 2 will be cut out and backed with felt to be ornaments.
