I have 2 check-in's today and some finishes.

Good morning everyone,

Can you believe tomorrow is April.  Next week my 3 sons will be on Spring break so I am not sure how much stitching time will occur, but I will try.  I guess I will kit up a couple of small, easy projects to alternate with my Ink Circles wip.

Thank you to Heather at Stitching Lotus for hosting the 2017 Smalls challenge and Kerry at Ramblings of a Biscornu Addict for hosting Theme-Tas-Stitch.

Here is one from February I forgot to show you. It is called Love You More and was a freebie on Hands blog here.


This month's smalls only consisted of three.  One I showed you on 3/17/17 and was the St. Patrick's shamrock freebie by Brooke's Books Design.  The other one is called Winter Garden by Turquoise Graphs and Design and was in the JCS Sept/Oct 2012 issue.  So much beading but totally worth it.  I can't wait to turn it into an ffo.

This little cutie is an oldie by Sanman Originals Design.  I will make it into an ornament.  It is called Easter Tulip.

Now onto the March Madness.

Here is an update to Cirque de Circle by Ink Circles.  I can't wait to have this done and my son is getting excited to have it completed.


Here is an update on White Tigers.  I made tremendous progress this month also.

And lastly, another Turquoise Graphics and Design. It is called Christmas Wreath and is from JCS 2010.


Thank you for looking at my blog and my stitching.  Hope you all have a great weekend.

Happy St. Patrick's Day.

Good morning everyone,

I hope you are having a great Friday and St. Patrick's Day.  My youngest son made A/B honor roll so I will be heading out soon to see him get recognized for his work.

Since I completed this a few days ago I thought I would make a post today.  This is a freebie from Brooke's Books Publishing found here called St. Patrick's Day shamrock.  I used DMC variation 4050 and 32 ct white Belfast linen.


I also have 2 updates on some wips I haven't shown you in a while.  Here is Cirque des Cercles by Ink Circles Designs.  It is on 14 ct black aida and Carrie's Creation Thread in Bluebird.


I am also working on White Tigers and is in a Stoney Creek leaflet.  I am using 32 ct grey linen. There is a ton of color changes and blended thread but it is really looking wonderful.

I also played around with dyeing fabric.  I love this one with the blues, yellows and greens.  I found a white hibiscus flower pattern in a JCS magazine that will look great.

I am participating in Jessie Turns 29 SAL on Facebook that starts on April 15.  I don't normally have a ton of projects in rotation but I thought it would be fun this one time.  One of the things I plan to work on is this German castle (the one on the lower right corner).  I dyed some 32ct Belfast and made a mistake the first time so I redyed it a darker blue and I really am happy with it.

Thanks for letting me share.  I hope you have a great weekend.

Good morning everyone, I am sorry I am late posting my finish but I caught some kind of cruddy mess late Thursday and I am finally feeling...
