Quiet and Relaxation

I'm glad you could visit. My stitching brings me joy and is a source of relaxation. Visit often and feel free to leave comments.

a French piece

I'm waiting on part 3 of the LK mystery sampler to arrive so I pulled out a freebie from a Designer I've never heard of....Dessins DHC-Bird's Roundelay. I got this from my LNS after market last spring.  I used a Waterlilies color on a piece of linen from my stash.
Now I'm off to find something else quick to stitch....I think I may do a Halloween little pillow from another freebie given to me. We are waiting for the remnants of Isaac to arrive. We need over 6" of rain and they are saying it would take 12" to make up for our drought....a nice steady all weekend rain would be nice. (sorry, holiday plans that may be ruined)

The temperatures are a little cooler and we did get some rain yesterday/last night. Still need a lot more but we will take what we get.
On Saturday I finished up the Leaves pattern from Prairie Schooler Pumpkins. I will try to finish it as a standup as they show. I stitched it on a piece of fabric I had that was a bit lighter than the Cognac I had that it called for.

Here is part 2 of the Lizzie Kate Mystery sampler Very Scary....I've told some in conversation that this part I was feeling very impatient while stitching it...but it went fine and I still like the piece as a whole....can't wait to see the next and last installment. On part 2 of the pattern I see the name Acorn Hollow but it's not on the cover as Very Scary is on both.

Very Scary

Part 1 that is....this is Lizzie Kate's Very Scary Mystery sampler....I used R&R Old Mill Java for the fabric. Embellishments will be added when all of the parts are done.

 I have finished the Lizzie Kate Less/More series...here is hate less, love more

And here it is all as one....I did some changes...I didn't leave out the bottom border motif on each as called for when doing as one piece and only did the top of the final border and changed the colors for it. 
I will probably finish this as a bellpull or fabric framed piece as I've done on another series of hers and will also do on the Halloween one, which reminds me I need to pull that out also and take them and have my mom help me with the assembly.

In the nick of time

Just as they were doing the closing comments on the Olympics last night I put the last stitch into the 3rd part of Less/More....Here is 'Talk less'

One more part and then to decide if I want to do the border for the whole thing or if I want to change it around.
