More Progress

I have managed to stitch a little more on Snow White despite all the holiday hustle and bustle. Sorry for the poor picture as it is from my Ipod. I'm loving every minute of this one!

LHN "Snow White"

A very dear friend of mine gifted me this chart and I absolutely love it. I'm stitching on a piece of fabric called "Phoenix." I love the look of white on red. (Pay no attention to the wrinkles. It IS a WIP after all...lol)

I'm getting back into the swing of things as far as my stitching is concerned. I've always called it "my therapy," and lately that's just what it is.

I just found out today that Kathy Barrick of Carriage House Samplings is retiring from designing! Such sad news! I own several of her designs but there are so many more I "need!" No more Hawk Run Hollow designs....what to do? It's a sad day in my world. :(

I had to order another skein of WDW Dove to finish the leaves on the bottom row of flowers on Poinsettias and Pines, so I'll post a picture of the finish soon. Love the way it turned out. I've been plugging away on Inspiration, and have finished sections 4-7 and have a lot of section 8 done. All the confetti stitches and color changes are tedious, but the look is amazing. I may get it finished this year...lol

I'm In Love!

It's been SO long since I browsed for any new stash. I need a skein of WDW to finish my Poinsettias and Pine and got to looking at some of the "new to me" stuff. OMGoodness, I'm in LOVE with this one by Stickideen von der Wiehenburg...

Isn't it gorgeous? This is a definite gotta have!

Somehow or another I got "roped" into stitching another Mother's Tree for my MIL's sister. I'm very glad I kept the chart that I made with MIL's names. Not sure which colors I'm going to use yet, but I'm thinking something goldish. :)

Have a stitchy day!

Halfway Home

My progress as of last night...


I sure wish the picture was better, but at least the colors show up better in this one. I started on the row of poinsettias at the top last night which is what I've been looking forward to. Really LOVE this pattern!

Have a great day!!!

Find Comfort

Such a great way to describe my love for this hobby. Very comforting. This is my latest Blue Ribbon ornament, and the first that has "2010." Again I apologize for the picture quality. Can't wait to get my new camera! lol


I'm still very much in love with these little beauties, and I have so many more I want to stitch. All the holidays, especially the Valentine ones.

Poinsettias and Pines is coming along nicely. Progress picture will come soon.

Hope you're finding comfort in something today, and God bless! :)

Salem Sisters

What a great week it's been to stitch. The rain has made me feel like hibernating with my needle and thread and never-ending forensic shows! lol I've gotten a lot done on Poinsettias and Pine. It's a lot of fun to stitch and so far I've managed to avoid any frogging (knock wood). Amazing what you can do when you take your time and enjoy each "x." :)

I wanted to show off my "Salem Sisters" by Plum Street Samplers. Can you find 13 Stars and a Witch's Face in the design?


It's stitched on 32ct mystery fabric with WDW Mascara, Mulberry, and Tiger's Eye. You can't really see the purple for the lettering in the picture, but it's very pretty. This one was a joy to stitch, too, and my first project after the long vacation I took from stitching.

Thanks for visiting, and have a very stitchy weekend everyone! :)

Back In The Saddle!

I took quite a break from stitching and to be honest I was afraid I'd never pick it up again. But, I think this hobby is like a long lost friend when you've been away from it for a time. It always welcomes you back with open arms, no matter what.

I finished Salem Sisters and will post a picture of it later, along with another Blue Ribbon ornament. Right now, I'm working on Blue Ribbon Designs "Poinsettias and Pine" which is one of those to-die-for charts that I fell in love with the second I laid eyes on it. I kinda made my own conversion of the colors using VC Silks and WDW, and here it is so far...


It's on 40ct white linen, one over two. The picture isn't the best because I managed to lose my digital camera in the move, so I had to use my phone.

Look forward to posting more in the coming days, and I have to say it's great to be back!!!
