Here is Teensy Weensy

This is Keslyn's Teensy Weensy. As I posted earlier, I used some of her colors and some of what I had on hand and switched around a few to mix them up a bit. I hope it doesn't show up blurry....I don't like it when a piece doesn't fit my scanner and my picture has to be from the camera....not the best that way.
I did notice my favorite Gloriana silk 'Topiary' (which I substituted for something else) is identical to Gloriana's Autumn Arbor which it calls for.

Last weekend a dear friend lost her battle with cancer and yesterday was her visitation and funeral. A friend and I went early to the visitation, glad we went together.
I have several ornaments stitched by Michelle. She had stitched Mawmaw's quilt by M Designs and I fell in love with it so she passed her chart along to me and I stitched it for my mother a few years ago. Than I passed the chart along to another friend.
Here is the beauty....being shown in memory of Michelle.

Loose feathers

I finished Winter of the 2011 Blackbird designs loose feathers, so now all 3 are finished. I used DMC for CC colors

I have some boxes to put the additional patterns on when I stitch those out of these leaflets.


I loved this design when Tracy(Ink Circles)first posted it and it showed the fabric too light. I chose to use 35ct. Parchment over 2 and love the colors.

stash purging

I've decided to do some stash clearing out. I don't want to collect anymore LOL...I'm going to keep what I like at the moment that I hope to stitch someday. Cross eyed cricket and Prairie schooler are two of my collections....I've gone through CEC but not PS yet plus some other designs. Check out my photobucket link or my 2nd page here for sale additions. Keep checking back as I'm still uploading but wanted to give a heads up.

One Sunflower

I picked up this cute Jeanette Douglas-One Sunflower chart at Celebrations last year. I am more of a 2 strand fan on larger count but this one is to be a delicate touch. It was a fun quick stitch.

Part 2

This is Autumn of Blackbird Designs 2011 loose feathers. Heads up....there are several colors you will need 2 skeins of if you do the whole thing as one(at least I did)and I don't know about the CC as I'm using DMC and so don't have to cross each as I go so a skein is fine on those. Piney woods, endive, maple syrup(possibly) & wood trail are the overdyeds that I need multiples of.

Another shop model

This is Plum Street Pudding's 'Sergei' done over 2 on 36 ct. It was a lot of fun to do. I picked it out to stitch for my LNS. I am ready to get back to my own stitching for a bit though.
Scanning shows some tails so going back to clip those 1/16" ends....arghhh.
