A Little Stitchin' and a Note.....

Gentle Friends, sooooo... I've been quite absent lately and I'm sorry about that, let me start off with the pitiful amount of stitching I've done (as I didn't stitch for about 5 days)... here's a really bad snaperoo....


just stitching across the top portion.  It's still fun and I always love the color palette in Deborah Thorpe's samplers.

A Little Finish and a Little Start

Gentle Friends, over the last week or so we had a lovely Thanksgiving with friends and family... and now we a quickly moving toward Christmas...  I finished up the Winter Floral Sampler and here's a snap...

"Winter Floral Sampler" from Knotted Tree Needle Art
11/5 - 11/27/22
30ct WDW Tin Roof - Called for NPI Silk

I recharted the right-hand side from about "w" to the right edge, and am very happy with the results.

The next piece that I started is one that's been on the back burner for years.  Another stitcher helped me out with the chart as I had misplaced it but had my copy without a key...  here's a snap of where I've gotten so far...


"In Memory" - Midsummer Night Designs
40ct LL Vintage Buttercream -  Belle Soie and NPI Silks

It's called "In memory" from Midsummer Night Designs.  The chart has only ever appeared in Just Cross Stitch magazine that I'm aware of. I've made a pretty good start on the border.  I'm stitching this as a piece for my mom who's been gone now for 10 years.

A Little Stitchin'

 Gentle Friends, still stitching my way across WFS... here's a snaperoo...

... the snap is craptastic as the linen is really more grey than yellow, but you get the idea.  Only the last third left to go and then on to my next project waiting in the wings.

Flashback Friday

 Gentle Friends..... here's a sampler for the Thanksgiving season from about 10 years ago...

"Feast of Friendship" designed by Blackbird Designs - 9/18 - 11/3/13 - 36ct Barn Owl
Using mostly recommended overdyed - changing GAST "Piney Woods" for CC "Baby Spinach and adding CC "Sassy Brass" to the roof tiles.

I remember this as a really fun stitch and it's framed and hung up on the sampler wall so I can see it every day.  It's amazing that almost ten years have gone by since this was stitched... Tempus fugit!!
