Sorry for the long absence....I was having some technical difficulties (which means I really need to read the manual for my camera!) I am getting ready to go to stitch night at my friend's house and I wanted to get these photos logged on before taking a ton more tonight! Above is one of my WIP's. It is Needle and Thread by Little House Needleworks. I could not resist the cuteness and the love of stitchiness that this chart provided.
You know how you go along and go along not spending money "frivolously?" Well, all of a sudden I just went nuts and bought another needle minder. I can see how these can get totally collectible! Next up on the to buy list is the Christmas candy cane needle minder for my Christmas stitching.
Karin finished this beauty by Hinzeit and got it framed. Can't wait to see it in her house!
Remember our Bring Three, Pick One project back in January? It is where everyone brought three charts from their stash and we all voted on which one they should finish by the end of the year? Debbie finished!!! And this is one of the most gorgeous pieces ever!!! I must add it to my short list! It is Hornbook Alphabet Noir by A Mon Ami Pierre done with Bell Soie Fallen Leaves.
Close up!! I love that little girl!
Karin finished the companion piece to the one above and had it framed. What a great little grouping this will be!!
Barb had her Drawn Thread piece framed and it is stunning!
Barb finished the August and September Drawn Thread monthly checkbook covers. Look at the amazing work she did on the leaves and the flower petals!!!!! Wow!
Barb had another framed piece to pick up. This is Elizabeth's Garden by Kathy Barrick.
The aforementioned September.
This is Dutch Tulips by Carriage House Samplings as stiched by Barb. Now, I have this chart, I have started this project, and now when I see it started by Barb I am in a frenzy of love for the whole thing!!! Lucky me!!!
Hope everyone is having a lovely weekend full of fun times, family, friends, stitching, reading and just all around happiness! See you soon!
