Secret Ops

I busted into my friend Jayne's house last week so I could see some of her gorgeous stitched pieces and sneak a peak at some of her stitching stash!!!! Let's just say, a good time was had by all! Above is one of her finished BBD pieces. Love it!!!!
Here is another totally fab BBD piece. I think I definitely have to stitch this some day. If it also talked about needing to read before the day is complete it would fit me to a T! Isn't the stitching and the framing on this piece just gorgeous??
We found this little number in Jayne's stash and I immediately commanded her to finish it! So cool!!!!
Here is another almost finished beauty! Can you imagine having this up and framed around February 14???
Here is one of my all time favorite BBD charts! I have it. I need to get going!
Here is a new addition to the Jayne stash.
Sorry that these pictures are out of order; I can't figure out Blogger's photo order right now. Above is one darling little piece that I covet!
I am totally ape over Flax Fields by Carriage House Samplings!
Look what I got!!!! My friend Barb went hunting for this out of print chart and found one for me!!!! I am so excited. It looks like such a fun and relaxing stitch.
Here is a new addition to Jayne's stash. Love him! Love Primitive Needleworks too.
As you can see, I was perusing everything!!! Love Jayne's scissor fob and scissors!
I will have to go back when it is really sunny so I can take another picture of this fabulous wall of stitchy goodness at Jayne's house!!!!!
Barb finished the June and July Drawn Thread checkbook covers. The fireworks on July are amazing!!!!
Love the leaves on the trees on the June piece.
Isn't this little gal darling? She is in the current issue of The Gift of Stitching which is an on-line stitching magazine.
Makes you want to pop up some corn and turn on a movie doesn't it???
Here is a Barrick Samplers chart which was in Jayne's stash. Love it!
This is our group summer stitch project, A Basket of Flowers by Stacy Nash. Some of the girls picked really vibrant summer colors for this piece. Can't wait to see how they turn out.
Here is a chart that both Jayne and I have....I love it!! Have to stitch it soon.
This is Sachi. It is an old chart by La D Da. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE him!!! I think this might send me into an elephant frenzy!!!

It is good to bust down your friend's doors to get in there and see what they have isn't it??? Very inspiring!! Thanks Jayne!!

What gorgeous photos of beautiful pieces! I am lusting after some of them big time! Love the one about stitching before the day is complete, and the small floral one that you said you had the chart for also.

Thanks for sharing.
