A break from winter themed stitching.


I had this Halloween Hinzeit to do and thought it would be perfect to get away from snowmen seeing as we are to get hit with a MAJOR snowstorm tonight into tomorrow....ice, pellets then anywhere form 8-24" of snow for my area. ughhh....please just keep the power on.
Have plenty to do if we keep power....DD's bedroom wallpaper is all stripped so to wash walls then paint is in the plans with evenings of stitching.
On the Hinzeit, I used weeks Trick or Treat for the border with DMC for the lettering.

More Snowmen

I need to move on to more spring like things, though we haven't gotten more snow because of my snowmen stitching this time. LOL
This is Homespun Elegance's Snowmen melt your heart


I'm adding the chart with the unused wooden heart to my sale album for $3 + actual postage

Since we had more snow

I guess I should just keep stitching snowmen. LOL
This is Lizzie Kate's Snowman '10. I enjoy looking at this one because it is so bright.

Wahoo! snowed in

We got an easy 6" overnight of the white stuff...haven't gone out to measure it for real but will have to later to plow the driveway so hubby can get in after work. (just measured 9")
Today will probably be a scrapbooking day with DD since she's off school. Of course I will get some stitching in, but most likely tonight.

Last night I finished up Shepherd's Bush A winter's tale...hmmm maybe stitching him was equivalent to a snow dance. LOL

A touch of Spring

A cheery bit for this cold/wet winter. This is Shepherd's Bush Easter Treat bag. It won't take long to sew it up into a bag and thread the ribbons through it.

A break from my over one project

and what do I do? I stitch an LHN over one. LOL
It was so fun to do and actually quick.

LHN Acorns.

Now to move on to another designer

I had pulled several small kits from HIH and this is the last of the 3 I pulled. This one is Love Sampler. I had a mishap while ironing(from the back even) two of the clay buttons disintegrated so have to be added later when I buy more.Will look for some more quick stitch charts I have to intersperse with the WIP of Rosewood Manor now that these HIH charts are finished.



Don't forget to check out my sale page or even my photobucket link(lots more for sale there). I've added the recent finish charts.

1 down 999 more to go

As a lot of us do I have more charts than time will ever permit me to stitch, but I make a concerted effort to make a dent in my collection each year. I took a little break from my Rosewood Manor Spring Quakers to stitch this.
Here is Heart In Hand-Harvest Home Sampler that was a kit so was easy to whip up.


I'm not sure I know what I'm going to do with this one....I have quite a few things that I've stitched just because I like them but with no end purpose for them.
My friend Monique has a stitch book that she has put a lot of her stitching in. I do keep a scrapbook(okay, I'm on book #2)that has a picture of all my stitched pieces along with pertinant info for the design. But this looks like another great idea for those things I don't know how to finish or display, even if it's a temporary way to show them.

2nd finish for 2011

I've done 2 quick finishes....This 2nd one is Drawn Thread's calendar cover for Feb(obvious lol) sorry for the wrinkled piece....the iron is put away & I'm too lazy to pull it all out for this. LOL

I'm moving onto a bigger project now but may intersperse some quick ones too. The WIP is Rosewood Manor's Spring Quakers but I'm doing it over 1 on the beautiful called for fabric. No progress picture yet.

Hello 2011
