Part 2

This is part 2 of the Less/More series....Whine less, Breathe more. I'm really liking this series(as I do several of her flip its etc.). I'm 1/2 way done and not even half way done with the Olympics....will have to figure what I will work on to finish the Olympics when this is done.
Back to the men's gymnastics and the next part of this.

I just finished the first part of Lizzie Kate's less/more series(will wait to put beads and charm on all parts when it out of the q snaps for good). I am doing the series as one piece but not leaving out the bottom row as the optional chart shows. I'm hoping it will look as nice as I think it will....
Off to get new tires put on the car then back to some more stitching this afternoon I hope. We were to get rain today and it really looked like it, but the radar shows the solid wall of water coming across the state dissipating by the time it got here....figures...;(

Fresh off the qsnaps is Birds of a feather Kindness sampler. I stitched it on a piece of hand dyed 28 ct linen that I had on hand and used the weeks called for.

I had a small start and will now go back to LK less is more series done as one piece with some changes. I also am itching to start LK mystery halloween sampler that I got a piece of R&R old mill java to do it on.

Listing this leaflet in my sale albums too as usual.

Christmas in July

I finished up Victoria Sampler's Jingle Bells Xmas tree farm last night. I love doing her samplers, and this one doesn't have any hardanger or drawn thread areas which I think is a first for me on doing VS pieces.
I used Jazlyn Silver skies fabric and used silks although I substituted with colors I had on hand of NP & au ver a soie(though they are very close to what was called for). Off to my mom it goes as she asked me to stitch this for her.

Theresa at Shakespeare Peddler has given us a wonderful chance to help. The link will take you to the post I'm speaking of.
I'm getting a box of supplies(fabric/charts) ready to go to the teacher.

2 matted finishes

I have a few Shepherd's bush kits that come with Jill Rensel handpainted mats....the charts were fast to stitch up on the two I did. They are just laying behind the mat right now for scanning, so a tad crooked.

Here is Buzz Buzz Bee (1" x 3 1/2" on the stitching)

and Watercolour Heart (1 1/2" square on the stitching)

4th of July

Just in time for the 4th I finished stitching Heart in Hand Flag roundabout. It was a little kit that was easy enough to stitch on in the car while we were heading to and from Florida.

I've also just finished uploading a ton of things to my photobucket sales albums as well as putting a free for postage album in there. Wanted to do it over a week ago but didn't want emails sitting in my inbox while on vacation.
