Prairie Schooler Ornament

Wow! Two finishes in one day. This is a freebie.

Thanks again,

Tis Red Christmas ornament

I cannot believe it has been 2 months since I last posted.  I have been in a slight stitching slump.   However, I have some small finishes stitched, I just need to finish them.  I will post them soon I hope.

I stitched this a few months ago and just finished it into an ornament.  Sorry about the quality of the picture.  It is Tis Red by La D Da.  It was stitched on 18ct Cork linen and 12ct Sulky thread in Red Brick. 

Thanks so much for looking and have a wonderful holiday season.

New stash

I am so excited, I got 2 pkgs in the mail.  I bought 32ct Belfast in Aluring Blue.  I love the cheerful color.  I am going to do the Sock monkey in the JCS 2011 Halloween issue.  I bought 32ct Luguna in Woodlawn to stitch a Beagle for my son.

I have to start getting faster, my todo pile is a mile high.

More ornament finishes

Wow! I am on a serious roll.  Here are 2 more ornaments completed.
The first one is June Oakhaven 2011 SAL.

The next one is Sept Oakhaven SAL.  Not quite how I wanted to finish it but it is still cute. 

Well thanks for looking.

Some more ornaments

I have finally made some more ornaments.  Here is May OHD 2011 SAL.

Here is July OHD 2011 SAL:

Lastly, is my Quaker WIP.  I saw where I got pink marker on the upper right corner.  I cleaned it and it is faded but I am afraid there might be a small spot once it is framed.  I am too invested to not finish it, guess it just adds character.

Thanks for letting me share.

Ink Circles Ornament finished


Here is my ornament finished.  I am very bad about finishing my projects once they are stitched but this was very easy.

Thanks for letting me share.

A great find

I usually like to poke around at the local thrift store.  I have bought several older magazines and charts in the last few years.  Today was my greatest find yet.  I got 18ct Ecru Aida and LHN Home of a Needleworker for $.39.  I was so excited.

I also got a black frame at Big Lots to frame something I made my husband last year.  It was only $12.00.  I just need to go to get some foam core so I can frame it.

Thanks and have a great day.

Biscornu finished

I just finished this biscornu. It was a freebie located at
and it is #77. I used Carrie's Silk Thread in Thanksgiving and Sassy's Fabby 32ct Lugana in Carmel Corn. Unfortunately Lauren doesn't carry this color any more but she has a lot of gorgeous colors.

Bee Welcome Wallhanging

I had this stitched for awhile now and finally got to the sewing machine to finish making it into a wall hanging. I really love the soft colors. I put it in the foyer so you can see it as you walk into the house.
This was a complimentary pattern from Abi on her stitchingbee blog. The button is a sheep.
Thanks for letting me share.

Ink Circles By The Full Moon finish

Just thought I would post a pic of my finish. It is Ink Circles By the Full Moon from the Sept/Oct 2010 JCS magazine. I stitched it on 32ct PTP Sprite Belfast.
I have several things to make into ornaments and 1 biscornu to assemble. I hope to post pictures next week.
