No frogging

I lost my 98 yo grandmother last October. As we were going through her things, my aunts said "okay, what do we do  with  THE frog?" My grandma's  sister had given her this scour pad holder and it has been a joke as long as I  can remember who would  get 'stuck with it'. I giggled then thought, what a great memory of grandma and my great aunt and a great use with another meaning for me.......a frog ort holder.

weekend stitching...marathon?

We are to get some rain, sleet and snow tonight into tomorrow. It has started raining which is freezing on surfaces. Luckily I  have some stitching to keep  me  busy  while watching hockey tonight.

Here is my progress on By Gone Stitches  Quaker Virtues

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.
