A new year, a fresh start

Hi everybody,
What are you stitching on? Do you have anything special to start on New Years Day? I have been working on making lots of little washcloths (crochet) and having lots of fun with them. I also have been working on a design by Sampler Girl called Aunt Clara's Skating Sampler 1891. I am changing the name on it and adding mine since my husband and I use to ice skate together in the 70's I thought I would make a reference to that instead of Aunt Clara. I am sure she will forgive me. LOL

I hope to have this finished by the end of the week and maybe it will be my very first finish of 2010.

Here is what I have done so far on my Berry Time. It is such a pretty design and makes me want to run out and pick some berries. Yummy!

Here is what I have done so far on my It's Berry Time. I am stitching it with Gentle Arts Cranberry. I have 4 skeins and each one looks different so I am stitching with a thread from each one skein at a time and I am liking the way itlooks. Confusing? just a bit, but I am sure it will look great when finished.

It's Berry Time

This design is just so sweet. I am going to start it this very day. I chose the color cranberry to stitch mine. I liked it much better then the color that it called for which when I looked at it in the store it had a bit of rusty green to it. Where as cranberry was just so many rich reds in it, the perfect colors of berries that I like.
Who else is stitching along.
So far I have
come on and join the fun, this is a perfect summer stitch design.

"It's Berry Time"

I believe that several of us have started "It's Berry Time" (Bonnie, Kathy and I at the very least) while others have purchased the supplies (Sharon and ???). So perhaps we can SAL together and make some progress before the leaves begin to change!

Por fin.....

Here, finally, is my "Sunflower Inn" complete with French knots that I need to check-out in natural daylight tomorrow before taking to the frame shop.

Sunflower Inn

A second Stitch-a-long commences with "Sunflower Inn" from Little House Needleworks. Hopefully this will not take as long as "Peppermint Twist".

Sunday, April 12, 2009


Tada:  Here, finally, is "Peppermint Twist".  The final stitches were stitched in on this on Thursday evening, April 9.  The next time that you see this, it will be in a frame on the wall.

Almost there.....

Just about through BUT I have managed to miscount on the wreath (*&^%%) and to run out of Holly which I'll need when I restitch the wreath.  Grrrrrrrrr.......

Hey everybody,
I am happy to see so much progress on our Peppermint Twist going on. We will be continuing with that SAL and starting a new one as well. Our new one will be Little House Needleworks SUNFLOWER INN. I will add the supply list tomorrow here so gather your supplies and start stitching along with everybody. Just in time for the Spring which should be just around the corner.

My "Peppermint Twist" is now just over one month old.  I still have the goal to make it to the left hand side of the chart before the end of February.  Wish me luck!

PT Progress 2/13

I've been slowly making progress. I'm stitching it on 36 ct Woodsmoke with one thread over two and have been making a lot of dumb mistakes and doing a lot of frogging.

pre-Super Bowl update

Here's the latest on our piece prior to the Super Bowl.  I haven't worked on it in a week and need to get busy before winter ends-that gives me another two months.  My goal for February is to make it to the left side of the chart.

Any new Updates?

I have not had much time to work on my piece and for that I am miserable. I hope to work on it lots this weekend. Thank God its the weekend, this week has been so loooonnnggg!!

Wkly progression-Uploaded sideways!

Don't faint!

Here is my "Peppermint Twist" progress to date. I started stitching on January 10. At the Stitch-a-thon on the 17th, everyone was admiring the piece that we have selected. I wish that Bonnie had been there with a stack of leaflets. She would have sold-out.

Here is my progress so far. I'm enjoying stitching this, especially with the rest of you!

A New Beginning! on hold...

I was so happy when I signed on to hear "Peppermint Twist" me up jumpin around...DH ROFL!!! (that's what happens when all the kids and Xmas guests are gone! LOL) I have not stitched on this in two days, but here is the beginning...

I Started!!!

Sharon-Kudos to your LK SAL blog! Such creativity flowing through and it shows! Blog looks fabulous! I started my SAL last night. I managed to find some 36 ct Khaki Edinberg to stitch this design on. Feeling challenged, I was going to do this over one count until I realized just how ridiculous that would be! So, over two we go! I have the outlining of the poinsetta section done. No time to stitch tonight!

Wednesday, January 7, 2009

Hope everyone is gathering up their supplies. I have mine ready and will try and start this evening. No school or work today, we had a bit of an snow & ice storm over night. Though I would love to spend the day stitching I can't, the stomach bug is making its rounds and has hit my little Tori again last night. This morning though she is feeling a bit better so maybe that was the last of it. I sure hope so. DH is still feeling crummy though. I hope to take all the Christmas decorations down today and make some soup too. Will be nice to get the house back in order again.
