Last Finish of 2015

Pumpkin Hollow Farms by Little House Needleworks was my last finish of 2015. I stitched it on Light Mocha Belfast linen. This was a cute fall finish :)

I started Red by Mirabilia. She is on pearl gray belfast linen. I am so happy that I finally was able to start this one. So far, she is one of my favorite Mirabilias.

My New Year's Day start for 2016 will be Medieval Enchantment by Passione Ricamo. I have her all kitted up and ready to go.

Happy Holidays!

I finished Azalea at the end of October. She is stitched on Bo-peep pink cashel linen (which is actually a very pale pink). I like all the brights colors in her :)

On Halloween weekend, I decided to stitch a little Prairie Schooler ornament from Boo Moon. I changed the moon from orange to yellow.

Right now I am working on Pumpkin Hollow Farms by Little House Needleworks. My plan is to finish this one before Thanksgiving.

Thanks for stopping by!

October Update

I have a finish! Ana by Nora Corbett. She is stitched on PTP Storm belfast. I finished her at the end of September.

I have continued working on Azalea by Nora Corbett. Unfortunately, she had a little incident with Mandy. Mandy went snooping in my bag and pulled out a container of Thread Heaven, which she broke into tiny pieces. Mandy also decided to chew a little on the hoop holding Azalea. There are 2 spots on the right side where the fabric is a little thin, but at least she did not tear a whole. I gave Azalea a wash to get the dog saliva and blood out of the fabric. Azalea is a little worse for wear, but I think she looks ok, She has a little more character now.

While Azalea was getting cleaned, I started Electra by Nora Corbett on PTP French Lilac belfast.

Thanks for stopping by!

I finished At the Met by Mirabilia earlier this month and dropped her off at the framer last week. She is gorgeous, and I can't wait to see what she looks like framed. She is stitched on Light Mocha Cashel linen.

Some close ups:

I will be starting Ana by Nora Corbett. My goal is to have her finished before Halloween.

For this IHSW, I worked on At the Met by Mirabilia. I am getting close to finishing her. Yay!

It has been awhile since I last posted an update. I finished French Country Elephant by JBW Designs for my nephew that was born last month. It is stitched on Marble Belfast linen using Turkish Red thread by Weeks Dye Works.

We visited our new nephew earlier this month for a short vacation, and I started working Azalea by Nora Corbett. She is stitched on Bo-Peep Pink Cashel linen. Once I finish At the Met, I will then continue working on Azalea.

Thanks for stopping by!

Gardenia Finish

I finished Gardenia by Nora Corbett earlier this month. She is stitched on PTP Chrysalis opalescent cashel.

I am currently working on At the Met by Mirabilia and a baby announcement for my soon to be niece or nephew. I will try to get pictures of these up later this month. Thanks for stopping by!

Lady Hera Finish

I finally finished Lady Hera!! Yay!!

She is stitched on Autumn Blush belfast. I started her in August of 2012, and then stopped working on her for a while (over a year). I had a mental block with the peacock tail, and I didn't want to stitch it. The peacock tail was definitely worth the effort :)

If anyone is ever interested in stitching Lady Hera, I ran out of the blue beads (0020) and green beads on the curtain (2104) and had to order an extra pack of those colors.

I am currently working on Gardenia by Nora Corbett, and I hope to have her finished by the end of the month. Thanks for stopping by!

IHSW January

It has been awhile since I last posted!

For ISHW January, I worked on Gardenia by Nora Corbett. She is on PTP's crystal Chrysalis cashel linen. She was one of my new year starts.

Since I have not posted in awhile, I have a lot of pictures to show :)

My other new year start was Old World Vinery by Chatelaine. This one is on 32 ct ivory jobelan. I can't wait to get some more progress in, but I need to finish Lady Hera first.

This weekend I also finished Our Love Nest by Country Cottage Needleworks into a box. I thought it turned out pretty well, and I am glad it is no longer sitting in my drawer of finished cross-stitch.

I have been working a Lady Hera. It is about time I finished her, but the peacock tail is huge and taking some time to stitch! Hopefully I will finish her up in February.

Since I was getting a bit tired of Lady Hera, I also started At the Met by Mirabilia. I love the colors in her sash.

I also finished Knock Knock by Prairie Schooler into a box last October. I am finishing several of my other pieces into boxes too.

Last, but not least, is Luna by Nora Corbett. I stitched this piece for my sister's family, and it was their Christmas present.

Thanks for stopping by!
