I have been busy reading blogs, getting inspired by all of your pieces and finishing some of my own! The cooler weather and lower humidity in the midwest always inspires me to get my duff in gear and finish stuff, lol.....of course, the ideal weather never lasts long around here so who knows what the week will bring, I have even started my 'fall' cleaning.....but i know that won't last...hehehe
I have been working on a xmas gift for my DD and her family...I wanted to do a family sampler for them, but they are sooooo NOT into
Gnomes in a Row
I used all the suggested threads and fabric count
Another finish that i have been working on for
several years a while is Sweetheart Tree's B is for Bunny....I am so glad that i decided to finally do it, cuz i love how it turned out. I think after I have seen a bunch of yours finished that I will finish as a flat pinkeep :D...
B is for Bunny
it was a kit with thread and linen :D
I have D is for Dog also, so maybe will pick that one up this winter to work on....I love the colors and beautiful threads...2 of the bunnies are done with whisper thread and are fuzzy and the pearls, buttons and charms are just too cute!
DH and I have a coffee shop and are coffee nuts so a friend gifted me this next pattern and I finally got the chance to stitch it up....I am having such fun discovering all the 'new to me' linens, dyed and all the new overdyed flosses etc......coming from someone who stitched in the 70s and 80s and just now getting started again....good grief, I feel old.....things have changed soooooo much and for the better!! hehehe....so bear with me as I learn all the 'new to me' stuff!
done with recommended threads
I have found a sunshine charm and am looking for a coffeepot/cup charm too and then will finish and put in a small frame.
Today is DH and his cousins reunion....they have not all been together for 30+ years....so it should be really interesting??? I would really rather stay home and stitch, sigh....but will go for him....you know all the things that a wife must do....its a wonder we get any stitching, crafties, etc. done at all! lol
Best stitches to all.....
