Just Outa da Hoop

Gentle Friends I finally finished up the Colonial Gathering pieces and it will be in the mail off for finishing this morning.  I am not sure why, but for some reason these particular pieces were just so long in stitching and it seemed I had problem after problem........  first, I had dog vs chart problems - after I got another chart I couldn't get the gumption up to even begin stitching  - then after I got going it seemed that the white stitching would never end - then when I wanted to get going on the fob part I had a problem finding my smallest hoop  - it was not with the others and I had to tear through pile after pile of stash and stuff eventually locating it in one of my silk stash bags - how it got there I'll never know..... so .......  here tis......

 ...  I have it on the backing fabric....  I am sure that Faye will work her usual miracle and they'll turn out just darling like the cover snap.  I also worked a bit on SMS, I'll show a snap of that tomorrow.

That's about it for today sports fans - thanks for stopping by do stop again!!

Take care,
edgar

  2. Great finish, I like the strawberries. I am sure Faye will do a super job....some pieces just are problems from the start. Thus making the finish so much sweeter. I am working on E Rosenstand's Silhouette, basically black. You would think one color no problem....but no...so hard to follow a one color pattern. But I plod on... frogging all the way.

  3. So beautiful. I can see why the extensive white on the house would be taxing. Glad you worked through it.

  5. Worth all the bumps in the road! I love this. With large houses it does seem never ending. But those berries are the berries!

  10. Glad to hear someone else thought there was endless stitching on the big old white house.

    Was glad to finish the house and move on to other colors in the design.

  17. My stitching supplies seem to migrate too. Found one thing I was looking for in the night stand in the guest room - no idea how it got there! Very nice choice for the backing fabric.
