Merry Skater

I love this little lady. She's another of the LHN 2010 Ornaments. Along with the burgundy beads around the wreath, I also added some pretty yellow ones along the vine on the left. She was a quick stitch that I enjoyed very much.


More to come!

Let's Do The Peppermint Twist!

This is another of the LHN 2010 Ornament charts called "Peppermint Twist." It's so cute! I got the button in the mail yesterday and was a little perplexed to see it didn't have any button holes. So, I had to attach it at the crook with thread. I just hope it holds up well.


I've got a couple more finishes to post as well in the next few days. Needle is smokin'!!!

Christmas in July

I wanted to do an ornament to celebrate Christmas in July, so I chose this one by La D Da in the 2010 JCS Christmas Ornament issue entitled " 'Tis Red." I used VC silk in Baneberry Bright and I absolutely LOVE the colors!


I've finished another of the 2010 LHN Ornaments and I'm waiting on the button I ordered before I post the pic. I've been stitching up a storm lately, and loving every minute!

Have a great day!

Winter Sheep And Bunny Egg

These are my latest finishes. This is "Bunny Egg Mini" by Waxing Moon. The fabric is a very pretty hand-dyed purple evenweave, and although it was rough stitching on it because the holes were so tight, the finished product is well worth it. LOVE how it turned out!

And this is the 4th 2010 LHN Ornament I've done so far. "Winter Sheep" Love the red bird button...

I've picked up Inspiration again and am working on it once more. I'm determined to finish it if it kills me! LOL Happy stitching, everyone!

La la la la la...PEAR TREE!

OK, so I'm not the best singer...LOL

This is LHN's "Pear Tree" ornament from the 2010 series. Miss Linda gifted me the pattern from my Wish List at TS, and I just lell in fluv with it!

I changed it up a bit and made the "P" and "T" the same color as the rest of the alphabet, as opposed to the green that was charted. I also did an "O" instead of the little pear. I absolutely love the yellow beads.

My plan is to finish all 12 in the set and make them into pillow ornaments and put them in a basket. So pretty!

Floss Tag For A Friend

I had Miss Brenda's name for the Spring Freebie Exchange at TS and I chose to stitch and finish this cutie for her...


The free pattern can be found here: The Meri Wanderer

I used Vicki Clayton silks and stitched it over one so that it would be small enough for a floss tag. This is my first attempt at finishing one of these, and I did enjoy it although I need a lot more practice. Miss Brenda says she likes it, so that makes me happy. I also made her a scissor fob with a froggy charm to help ward off the "real" frog! :)

A Valentine Gift

I received this pretty Valentine from an exchange on Tranquil Stitches and I just love it. Miss Katrina really jazzed up a plain card and made it something very special!

2011 Tranquil Stitches Valentine Exchange
Stitched by: Katrina H.

I'll show what I stitched tomorrow after Miss Karen posts a picture. "Somebody" forgot to take a picture before she mailed it. *rolls eyes*

Poinsettias & Pine

I realized I've never posted a picture of this once it was finished. LOVE it. I dressed it up a little with a photoshopped frame. Not sure how I'm gonna finish it, though...

I finished this one earlier in the month. Love how it turned out!
