Some stitching finally

I finished the model I was doing the other day...can't wait for it to be released, I think it will be a poplar piece. :)  Sorry for the tease but I can't reveal.

I picked up this adorable piece for my cousin's first child...it was a fun and cheery piece to do...now to get it laced and framed.


I have a small exchange piece to finish up and I need to get working on a commissioned Silver Lining piece again...also have a few pieces I'm itching to start but will delay that for a few weeks.

Has been a busy couple of months around our house....Senior year activities and graduation for our daughter. Graduation party approaching then a bit of relaxation for momma.

still plugging away

I'm busy busy busy and am still working on a model stitch piece so nothing to show. I dislike not posting much but don't have any finishes to show at the moment. We, as most probably are, are ready for spring...today is a taste with spring thunderstorms and supposed to be in the 70's on Sunday. More and more warm days is a good sign. Happy stitching to you all.

Olympic stitching

Hope you all are making progress on your stitching. I am slowly while watching the olympics....I haven't done as much as I normally do.

I can't show a progress on my stitching as it's a model for a design that hasn't been released yet, sorry. So no pictures for today's post.

More Jewels

Primitive Jewels that is.
Here is another batch of models for her trunk show models. Each one I stitch I like better than the last. They are all so sweet and a stitcher could easily find a subject to their liking if not fall in love with all of them.

It's definately winter here

We have had more than our share of snow though it's been gone for a while but these below zero wind chills are getting old. It's been years since we've been this cold.
I loved this design as soon as it came out. I decided to do it over 1. I've done Halloweenies and may go back and do that one again only over 1 also.
