Happy Dance, Happy Dance!!!


After 2 1/2 YEARS of stitching, my Houses of Hawk Run Hollow is FINISHED! Happy Dancin'!!!

This is the last square (I worked backwards) that I just finished last night. I moved A. Bailey's name down because I wanted her on there somewhere, and put my name at the top. I love how the two lines rhyme...

I haven't washed and pressed it yet. Just too excited to post! But here she is, my pride and joy...


It's stitched two over two on Vintage Country Grain Belfast with DMC. It measures a whopping 23" wide by 17 1/2" tall.

This WIP has seen lots of happy days, sad days, and has been my therapy on days that just weren't so nice. I've enjoyed every single stitch, and hopefully it will be something that my children will cherish once I'm "dead and in my grave." (I know, it's morbid, but I love it! LOL) I'll post it again after it's framed.

Thanks for sharing my happy dance today! :)

Model Finished

I was honored to stitch another model for Miss Virginia at VeeandCo this month. This one is called "Bath Time," and it's part of a new spring series she just released...

I just love the cute little robins, and the happy colors.

Thanks for visiting, and have a wonderful stitching day!

The End Is Near

I can almost taste it! I'm on the LAST BLOCK of my Houses of Hawk Run Hollow WIP. I did a bit of redesigning and put Ms. Bailey's name at the bottom and my name will go at the top...

There's a LOT of stitching in this last house, so it's taking me a while to get it done. Every little stitch counts, though!

Hope you're having a wonderful Friday. Thanks for stopping by!

My New Toy

I found the neatest Printer's Tray at an antique shop here in town. I just fell in love with the ones finished on this Blog and had to have one!

I like the way this one is finished, but I think I'd like my alphabet done in different fonts and scattered throughout the piece. I'm also planning to hide numbers 0-9 somewhere, too. Oh, the possibilities!


Thanks for visiting, and happy stitching!

Blue Ribbon Part Deux

Thank you for the nice comments on my LK finish! :)

I've started round two of the Blue Ribbon Design ornaments. Last year I stitched 3 sets of Christmas Sentiments Volume I, and this is the first of Volume II. I'm using DMC on Vintage Country Grain absolute favorite fabric...

I finished two of them in January, and hope to get at least two more done by the end of this month. They're a quick stitch, and I just love the over one parts.

Thanks for looking, and happy stitching!!!

Tinsel Tangled?

This was my last finish for 2008. It's a cutie by Lizzie Kate that my friend Eva gifted to me, and I really enjoyed every single stitch!

I got a chance to upload a few more pictures over the weekend, so I'll get them posted over the next few days.

My new computer should be here the first week of March! I can't wait!

Happy stitching...
