Snow Belles

are done just in time for our cold weather....I hear we had some flurries(that melted) Monday night but it was dark out and I wasn't watching for them.

Here is/are Lizzie Kate Snow Belles on For the cure (pink) fabric. The piece is just draped for picture taking and not stretched so is a bit askew. I put a piece of white behind it but it still doesn't show pink enough in the photo.

Now I'm back to stitching on my Hands to Work sampler. I also am closing up my set of Blackbird Designs Halloween stockings so hope to have those to show....they've been stitched for a year or two but I am just getting the finishing done on them(with my mom's help of setting them up for sewing together).

Another one with one to go

I've finished up Lizzie Kate's Snow Belles Frosty Friends and just have 1 more to go to have the whole piece finished.

I'm Back

with some pictures finally. Seems like I am starting on and working on several things but not getting any finishes the last couple of weeks. Will probably get a few all at once this way though.
Here is Ice Queen from LK Snow Belles that was finished over a week ago. I love the color(For the Cure) of this fabric but not caring for the 30ct open feel. But it will all be okay.

And a friend lent me this chart that I was just itching to do. I didn't stitch much over the holiday but did get some x's in on Saturday evening.Plum Street Sampler Halloweenies. I did switch the color for the dog on the right. I didn't use any CC, but Weeks or GAST instead.

Hope everyone's holiday was a good one.

Happy Thanksgiving

I'm popping on here to wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving in the US....others, it's a great time to remember to be thankful for what you do have.
I did have an LK Snowbelles finish last weekend but haven't gotten a scan yet....will do so after the holiday.

 I have been working on a couple of things....One I ran out of SNC a week or so back so while waiting for a friend to bring it from Cecelia's retreat this weekend I worked on this Goode Huswife's The sparrow. It's on 40ct. linen over 2 with DMC.  And just in case you were interested...this chart is spoken for.

After finishing the Goode Huswife chart on Saurday I finished up a partial start on M Designs 'Katelyn'. It's on 40ct white over 2 using SNC Jellybean.
Sunday was such a cold rainy day that it was a good movie day for DD & I with DH deer hunting. Needless to say, lots of stitching time on Sunday after church and lunch with family.
This is Bent Creek's freebie 'One dozen'. It really was a quick stitch, only 4 DMC colors on 28 ct. natural linen. It's on a slant because it's a tad too long for the scanner.

I've started a little PS ornament but I'm not into it...so it will probably be put aside(it's on dark fabric)to find something else to stitch while I wait to meet up with my pony express delivery of floss. I really need to sit down with my finishes and finish some of them up.....Have a box of frames a friend gave me & I need to make an inventory to see if any of them fit some of my finishes as is.
