Flowers for Sarah Needlebook SAL

YAY! I did get started on it last night. It is stitched on a piece of 7 x 54 Antique White linen 32ct. There are actually only 4 colors in it. The piece is so long because you spread out the sections and fold to make pockets, kinda hard to explain, but you will see as it goes along. Here is the first progress picture, yes it is only a leaf, but it is something, LOL. Sorry not the best pictures and yes, I was too lazy to stitch the edges, so I guess I better do something about it tonight, LOL..

New Starts

Yes I am bad, even with all my WIPS I am starting some new things.

I started Inspiration by Rosewood Manor this weekend. This is about 1/2 the first page (I think there are 17 pages). It is stitched on 32ct Tawny Sparkle from Silkweaver

Then last night I did the gridding for the Flowers for Sarah Needlebook by Blackbird Designs. I am doing this one during a SAL at the Blackbird Designs Group. This is stitched on Antique White Linen - 32ct. The cut had to be 7x54".

Have a Stitchy Day Everyone!

I finished up this biscornu this weekend also. Now I am going to work on Inspiration by Rosewood Manor. Just what I need to do is start something new, with the hundreds of WIP I have, LOL.. Well here is the biscornu, it is stitched with a Threadworx floss, although I can't remember the color, sorry..

Days off work

I took a few days off work this week (Thursday and Friday), no one under 13 in the house, YAYAY!! anyway ran around and had fun all day Thursday and then got down to some stitching. I finished this needlebook and am now working on a biscornu :)..

the Needlebook is from LHN. I made some changes in the way it is finished, I just need to put the felt inside for the needles and it will be completely done. The fabric is a 28ct Silkweaver Solo opalescent!

Finally some stitching on Rites

Life conspired to keep me from getting much stitching done last weekend and most of the week, but the last few nights I did get some stitching done on Rites of Spring. I hope to finish it this weekend and start on some much needed to be done exchange pieces..

Beautiful Square from Nicola

I received these beautiful squares from Nicola yesterday. I wish the picture showed the beauty of the stitching and all the beads better. Thank you so much Nicola, I love the goodies also. I plan to make this into a hanging pinkeep, I will post a picture as soon as I do...
