Last Day of March - April Blackwork SAL

March 31, 2007
I got this far stitching on our last day for the month. We started our blackwork Sal a day early. Here it is so far..(sorry not the best picture, not sure why..

It is stitched on 28ct white opie lugana with Carrie's Creation TyeDye fibers.. It is a very quick stitch so I think I may get done tomorrow after the housework is done :)

Halloween Gameboard WIP Progress

I am once again caught up with what has been released on the Halloween gameboard by Tanya Meehan Designs. It is on her site It is turning out very cute. Can't wait to see what she adds next. Here is the picture so far.

This weekend I will be working on the blackwork sal with Robin. I am not sure what I will be working on the next couple days. Maybe I'll do another letter for my alphabet!!

Algerian Eyelet - Letter A

I put the words Algerian Eyelet at the bottom of my Letter A sampler for my sampler book by Erica Michaels. I am doing it a little differently because I want the pages to be different colors not back to back same color. Hope I can work it out okay... Here it is complete

I also really, really want to set up a group to do the Ackworth Friendship book by With My Needle. Not too many on the group seem to excited about it, but I will keep on working on it. I think it would be something to cherish from fellow stitchers. See the picture below.

Flip Flop Ornament complete

Not the best job I have ever done on the finishing. I learned a lot and the next one I do will be handled differently. I think I will either do the pink one or the pansies ones..

I started working on my dragon RR, but it crashed and burned. I really messed up, not sure how and I am not up to correcting it right now. I think I will get my April stuff together and start some of them early. I think I will work on mostly smaller projects next month..

Another Model Finished

for Tanya Meehan Designs. I will be mailing them on Monday!!! All my obligation stitching is now done!!

Cross Eyed Cricket Flip Flop Ornie

I have the stitching done on the SAL that I was doing with Robin at the Needle Nook forum...I will finish it up this weekend. It will have craft foam soles, ribbon toe strap and a accessory button. Can't wait to see it finished but first I need to finish Tanya's model!!!

Frogs, Frogs and more frogs

Okay, this must be frog week. I worked on my flipflops last night and thought I had the palm tree all done, only to find I had made a one stitch error at the top. So out it all comes. I guess this is my week for not paying attention to what I am doing!!! Well back to it. I hope to finish the stitching tonight and then put the flipflop together this weekend!! I need to get back to work on the model so I can get it done by 4/1..

Flip Flop Ornaments

I started on my flipflop ornament Monday night. I got the darker color done on the palm tree. It is the first time in years I have stitched on linen. It is much nicer than it was when I tried it the first time and the green color for this is so pretty...I will try to get it completely stitched in the next few days and then put it together this weekend!! I will try to have a picture tomorrow of what I have done of it.

Model Stitching

I finished the first of two models for Tanya this weekend. I am a little paranoid when stitching so I did some tearing out (frog, frog, frog) to get it right!!! I have another small one to finish but today I will be working on my flip flop Sal with Robin. It won't take too long. I haven't worked on linen in a long time, so it sh0uld be very interesting!!


I went through about a 4 day stitching slump in which I didn't want to stitch or even pick up a needle. But I think that has finally passed. I also didn't want to mess with the computer too much either, so that explains the lack of posting!!

Egypt Garden Progress

I got over 2000 stitches in this weekend. I am very happy with the way the Chatelaine Egypt Garden is working out. I will probably work on Midi 1 for a couple of days this week..

March SAL

Haven't gotten a lot of stitching done the week. We started on the SAL on Monday but with all the goings on, just not as much done as I would like. Here is what is done so far. It is a SanMan Original on 28ct white opalescent Lugana stitched with Goblin Green Carries Creations

Christmas at Bunyip Billabong

by Dinky Dyes. I just finished this ornament for my monthly ornament sal I am doing (with myself), LOL...I want to finish one Christmas ornament each month. It is stitched with 28ct Silkweaver Solo Opalescent Lugana using Dinky dyes. There are two choices for dragon, either purple or blue, I went ahead and did the blue conversion...

Finally Got the Treasures

put onto the February Blackwork. They look blue in the picture, I assume because of the flash, but are actually clear crystal hearts..

March 1st - New Month of Stitching

I start on my Christmas at Bunnyip Billabong by Dinky Dyes on the 1st. It is my ornament for the month. Of course, it has a dragon on it!! The Dinky Dye silks are so smooth and soft they just glide through the fabric which is a opalescent Silkweaver Solo...I'll post a picture this weekend, I hope to finish it.

It is Stitchathon month on two of the groups I am in. So I need to try to keep track of my stitches. I am not good at keeping track of times. I am just up and down too much!!
