Sorry for not being here

Hi everyone,

I am sorry it has been almost 2 years since I have posted, but last year was a very trying time with lots of changes.  I don't want to bore you all with the details but we now live in Kentucky.  It is nice and we are getting to know the area.

I thought now that things have settled I can begin to chronical my stitching again.  I bought a new sewing machine last month and finally got some really good thread.  I was hoping to tackle my many finished stitching projects to get turned into something to display.  Unfortunately, my kids are home because of a snow day.  I am happy they are home, but I don't want to sew when they are here.  Hope to get some done next week.

Here are some current finishes I have done.  As soon as I make them into ornaments or pillows I will repost the results.

I just put the last stitch on this new freebie by Hands on Design.  It is on her website.  I used Carrie's Creation Pacific Blue and DMC 309 and 899 on light pink evenweave.

 Next, I finished the freebie Love U in Blueladie Designs Feb 2016 newsletter.  Done with the Carries Creation Pacific Blue and 321 on pink evenweave.

Next is a biscornu I created for Valentine's Day.  It is called Simple Hearts by Elizabeth's Needlework Designs and it is in the Just Cross Stitch 2015 ornament issue.  I did it with DMC 115 and 310 on white 18ct linen.
Well I don't want to overburden you with photos right now.  I will try to post some more tomorrow of finishes and WIPS.
Thanks for looking,


  1. Welcome back! What lovely heart pieces you have stitched! I like the design you used for the biscornu.

  2. Thank you so much. I love holiday stitching and the biscornu was a joy to stitch.


Thank You for commenting on my blog. It is really appreciated.
