Gentle Readers and Dear Friends - the post title tells all - this will be a stitchity post if there ever was one. Sometimes I find myself babbling along with not a bit a stitching. It was because of cross stitching that I started this Blog and I really feel bad about not having more stitching stuff. Oh well - it is what it is and I do what I can do - so enough of that - on to the post.....
First up, I wanted to post about a finish I had on Friday evening. I wasn't going to finish this piece so quickly but it was the one of the pieces I took on vacation with me and it was such a fun stitch. Here is a snap..
of the top half - and here is another snap...
of the bottom half - and here is an overall snaperoo...
LHN Monthly Squares stitched as one sampler - 32ct PTP Earthen
Recommended Floss (mostly)
1/18/11 - 6/17/11
If you remember I was doing these squares - one each month, but that fell to the wayside quickly as these squares work up fast and are fun to do!! I threw in some decorative stitches here and there and changed colours where I thought they needed changing, but mostly I followed the charts as charted - sort of.
I couldn't let my hands fall still and lord knows I certainly couldn't dig out a WIP so I started up the "Mystery Sampler" and here is the small amount of stitching I have gotten done....
I am loving the colour choices on this piece!!
The "HOE Snowman Ornament" round piece made it to my partner, Lisa.
Here is a snap of what I made for her...
For some reason I had the hardest time getting any kind of decent snap of this piece. It is from the JCS 2008 Ornament Issue and is called "Let it Snow" by CCN. I used mostly the called for floss - a cute piece, that I may have to stitch up for myself.
Now to the Gift-a-Way Drawing - The "LHN Monthly Charts" where a wonderful win from Ma Teakettle and I loved getting them and the stitching was super de duper - I think it only fair that I now pass on these lovelies to some other lucky person. If you would like the set of six charts - all you have to do is post a comment on this post only - and mention in that comment that you would like to be in the drawing - that's it - so simple. I will mail them to the winner anywhere in the world, so if you can receive mail - you can enter - no fuss no muss (I wonder what muss is??) I will get the Hag Claw to draw a winner from the BOD (Bowl of Destiny)over the weekend - the last day to enter will be this Friday 6/24. - I will announce the winner on Monday - 6/27.
That's about it for today sports fans. Thanks for stopping by!!
