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.
Rosewood Manor Crosses of the Kingdom
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.

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.
