It's another HOT day here in Chicagoland, so it's perfect for staying inside and stitching. I finished up The Sampler Lady by Little House Needleworks. Her skirt took a LONG time to stitch!
I went to the Goodwill Thrift store on Friday and found these two bowls that are perfect for displaying my scissors. I've seen so many flower frogs in blogland but I haven't been able to find any. I think this works pretty good and for $3 total you can't beat it!
Over the weekend I've gone through my stash and pulled out some fall/halloween designs to stitch. Some "smalls" and a couple of Prairie Schooler pictures. Fall is my favorite time of the year and I know Summer just started but I am SO ready for some cooler weather!
THANK YOU so much for all the kind comments you have left. I truly appreciate it.
Have a wonderful week and find some time to do some stitching!
Hi Everyone --
This has been a great weekend. After bad storms moved through Friday night (fortunately we didn't lose power) we've had a very nice weekend. I started this little design by LHN yesterday and finished it into a pincushion today.
Then I finished this Just Nan 12 Days of Christmas into an ornament using Vonna's tutorial. Thank you very much Vonna for being so generous and posting these tutorials
I also worked a little bit on Pink Hill Manor. I didn't get very far but something is better than nothing.
On Tuesday night I took a class at Welcome Stitchery. This is Rain Forest by Needle Delights. It's done on 24 ct Congress. It's very different from what I normally stitch, but I love the colors and it's been enjoyable.
Thanks for stopping by. Have a great week and get lots of stitching in!
Hello Everyone -- I hope you are all enjoying yourselves this weekend. Mine has been pretty low key. Normal chores around the house, a few errands and lots of stitching.
I took a picture of my "Patriotic" basket. These are all items I have shown earlier but I arranged them all together. I really like the way this looks. BeckySC has inspired me so much with all her wonderful stitching displayed in all different ways around her home. I finished 3 old Halloween punch-needle designs into pinchions. I mounted them on WDW wool and stuffed them with crushed walnut shells. I will put these all in a basket this fall with other fall/halloween designs.
This is another old punch-needle design that my youngest daughter did several years ago. It is also mounted on WDW wool and stuffed with crushed walnut shells.
Last Sunday I started this Blackbird Designs "Pink Hill Manor" I LOVE the colors in this.
I also finished stitching another BD stocking but haven't sewn it yet. I will show that next time.
Thank you all for your wonderful comments. They sure make my day.
