I've Been Stitching

Since my last post 2 weeks ago, we have had a couple of days of cold and ice, and a little snow. So, I spent a lot of the time indoors stitching!

First is a little progress on His Eye Is On The Sparrow.

I also had 3 finishes. The first one is the LHN Sampler Tree Ornament, "Oh Christmas Tree". I stitched it on the suggested fabric and used the suggested floss(but, I changed the CC Eggshell floss to WDW Grits, again).

Stitching the next two pieces with their cheerful colors helped brighten the cold, cloudy days and evenings. A Love Quilts square for a 2-year old little girl. Her parents requested inspirational words, hearts, and bright colors.

And, a quilt square for a World of Charity Stitching quilt with the theme of Spring.

Thank you for visiting!!

A Very Little Progress

Since my last post, I have had a doozy of a cold, and not much stitching has been going on around here. I am feeling better, so hopefully, my next post will have more stitching progress to show. I have stitched a little on His Eye.
I also started the next LHN Sampler Tree ornament and a Love Quilts square. I will show my progress on those next time when a little more has been done on them.

The winning name for the first Sampler Tree ornament and the Classic Colorworks floss has been drawn from the bowl. The chart and floss will be going to Barb! Barb, I will be emailing you shortly for your mailing address.

Thank you for visiting, and I hope everyone is having a great week filled with lots of stitching time!!

Another Finish, A Little Progress, And A Giveaway

I have finished the first Little House Needleworks Sampler Tree ornament--"Old Colonial" .
I stitched it on the called for 32 count Winter Brew Linen from R&R Reproductions, and used the called for Classic Colorworks floss. I did change the Classic Colorworks Eggshell to Weeks Dye Works Grits because I prefer the snow to be more white. I also changed the date that was charted to the year that my husband and I got married.

I would like to pass the chart for this ornament and the CC Eggshell floss on to another stitcher, so if you are interested, please let me know in a comment. If more than one person is interested, I will put the names in a hat(or bowl), and draw a winning name.

And, I made a little progress on His Eye Is On The Sparrow.

Thank you very much for the kind comments on my recent finish of This Is The Day--I really appreciated each comment!

Thank you for visiting, and I hope everyone has a wonderful February!!

It Is Finished

I started stitching this in July, 2012, and have worked on it off and on for two and a half years--and, it is now finished!!
This is the Day by Tracy Riffle of Hands to Work Designs. Stitched on 30ct Apple Brown Bindy linen using Gentle Arts Sampler Threads, Crescent Colors, and Weeks Dye Works floss. I changed most of the floss colors that were called for, and I left off the bottom section of numbers.

Thank you for visiting!!

First Week Of A New Year

The first week of 2015 proved to be a productive one stitching-wise.
I made some progress on This is the Day by Hands to Work.

And, I started this piece--LHN's Sampler Tree Ornament, "Old Colonial" last Saturday at stitch group. I am stitching it on the recommended fabric--32ct Winter Brew linen, and am using the called for Classic Colorworks floss. I am not happy with how that snow is looking--I should have stopped stitching last night when I was getting tired)--so, I will be restitching that this evening.

I hope everyone is staying warm where it is so cold. Thank you for visiting and Happy Stitching!!

Last post for 2014--the year just seemed to breeze by.

I had three finishes this month. The first was the ornament from my last post. The second finish was Lizzie Kate's Promise Me.
Stitched on 32ct Lambswool linen using Gentle Art Sampler Threads and Weeks Dye Works floss.

The third finish was a quilt square for Quilts For Older Children and Adults.
Country Cottage Needleworks'--Daisy Cottage. I changed most of the colors in order to honor the young lady's request for her favorite colors--pink and yellow.

Do I have stitching plans for 2015? I do. I am keeping my 2015 stitching plans very, very simple. (1)I plan to stitch the new LHN's Sampler Tree Ornaments as a SAL with the stitching group at my LNS. (2)Finish the This Is The Day Sampler. (3)After finishing This Is The Day, stitch whatever is calling to me the loudest.

I would like to thank all of you who haved visited my little(kind of boring)blog in 2014. And, a big thank you to those of you who have left comments--they are so very much appreciated!

I want to wish all of you a Very Happy New Year. I hope that everyone's year is a good one, filled with lots of stitching time and lots of new stash!!

Thank you for visiting!
