Ever get in a stitching funk and just don't pick up your needle for a week or so? I'm so there! But I am stitching this weekend if it kills me! LOL Gotta do a biscornu for an Exchange, so that's great motivation to get back in the swing.

In the meantime, I don't think I shared my "Peace" ornament that I stitched the end of last year. It's the Rosewood Manor design from the 2008 JCS Ornament Issue. I love the original colors they used, but I wanted to make mine traditional red & green.

I used one strand of green DMC and one strand of green metallic, so it really sparkles. Not sure how I'll finish it, but I really like how it turned out.

Have a great day, and happy stitching!

Bath Time

Remember that cute little model I recently finished for VeeandCo? Just look how Vee finished it for me!!!

Isn't it adorable? I was just thrilled to find it in my mailbox yesterday. Now, with these cute little robins at my house, Spring has no choice but to show up and melt away all these winter blues!

Hope you're having a fabulous stitching Saturday!

P.S. Don't forget to set your clocks ahead 1 hour tonight!

Fall Finished!

Last Fall I stitched this piece for Vee at VeeandCo and she finished it into the most beautiful wall hanging for me. Fall is my favorite season, so I can't wait to add this to my decor this year. Aren't the buttons and fabric choice perfect???

Today is the first day of a Stitch-a-Thon at Tranquil Stitches, so I'm planning to work on ornament #3 at lunch and this evening during Idol. My goal is to finish this one up this week and start on my very first Biscornu for an exchange.

Have a fabulous stitchy day!

Dancing A Jig...

This is my adorable Lucky Tuck that I received from Rae in our Exchange at Tranquil Stitches. Isn't he the cutest?

How can you not love Woodstock, and in that HAT?! She did a fabulous job, and I just love him!

Here's hoping you're dancing a jig today as well! :)

Spooky Tree

I planted a spooky tree to start my Me, Myself, & I Halloween Town round robin. The SAL started on December 31st, and I joined in by stitching this Judith Kirby #9 tree on a piece of Silkweaver Solo that I dunked in coffee to "spook" it up...

I love the how the fabric turned out, and it smells pretty good when I stitch on it, too! :) I hope to get at least one house built this month.

Have a wonderful day, and happy stitching!
