Wanted to wish all of my US Stitching Sisters a very Blessed Thanksgiving! I have been stitching away over the weekend I finished up a couple of ornaments. I will have pictures of them after next tuesday because they are gifts for NANI Christmas party. I also made up a couple of more beaded ornaments. I have been working on my HAED wolf and it is coming along I am almost through page 3 (think I will continue working on it till done with page 3) then just one more page. I have also been knitting a baby blanket for one of my DS good friend he and his wife are expecting their first baby New Years Day so want to make sure it gets done. Hope you all have plenty of stitching time this weekend. Until next time, May you be blessed with stitches, Karol
I have made a start on the black boston terrier. This is one of the ears and a start on down the face. Sorry the picture was not to great. Boy the color changes!!
Well I think I will stitch on my haed wolf now for a few days. Hope everyone is finding lots of time to stitch.
We have had our first snow here in northwest IN and they are calling for more tomorrow. Hopefully you all are having pleasant weather. I do enjoy the snow just wish I did not have to drive to work in it.
Sorry it has been so long between posts! But I do have some finishes to share. The first is the Bent Creek Big Zipper series that I finished up this week. Sorry the picture is not to great. I am really leaning towards finishing this in some sort of quilted wall hanging.
I have also done some more beaded ornaments. They are small ornaments from JoAnns then beaded with size 10 beads. I plan on doing some more before Christmas.
I have also finished up a couple of stitched ornaments but since they are for our NANI exchange I think I will wait to show them after our Christmas party.
Yesterday I attended a wonderful needlework event hosted by The Sycamore Ridge EGA chapter. First thanks for hosting it was a wonderful event!!! I rode down with Lelia from Stitches of Life, we were joined by fellow NANI members Sue D. and Terry T. also Cici . The event was taught by Eileen Bennett it was The Legend of the Underground Quilts. A lovely project and so much history was shared. Not only did I come home with a lovely project but some readings as well.
When I got close to home I hit or he hit me a deer. Fortunately not so much damage to my little saturnvue but enough that it will probably be spending a few days in the shop in the near future. I told my husband and son (both avid hunters) that at least I got one this year (they havent:( ) but they said it doesn't count because it got away.
On a side note Congratulations to Trine University(Tri-State) my son is an alumni. They are off to the division 3 football playoffs after winning the conference and going undefeated. Yes my son did play for them and we are so happy for the boys and the coaches.
Well dinner (beef stew) is simmering, the boys are hunting so I am off to stitch on one of the Boston Terrier pieces. Boy are there a lot of colors!!
Well I was trying to change my background and somehow I lost my list of blogs I like to visit!! :(! So I will be trying to get that back probably will not be done till this weekend though. I wish I knew how to add some of these cute backgrounds. If anyone knows please let me know. Until next time May you be blessed with stitches, Karol
Thought I would share my progress on my HAED wolf from this past week. I put in 1,220 stitches since Wednesday.
I am rethinking my rotation schedule. I know I am going to keep rotating but think I will just be a little more loose on what day I change. I will be working on finishing up some Christmas ornaments in the next few days. I probably will not share pictures until after they are exchanged at my NANI christmas party.
Hope everyone's week is gettin off to good start. Remember to get out and vote to my US stitching friends.
Yesterday I headed over to the House of Stitches in LaPorte just to pick up a few things!! Well the floss I ordered had come in so I needed to go!
The above is the floss I needed plus some fabric for a Lizzie Kate design I had picked up earlier.
I also got the LHN new angel to go with the ornament in the JCS issue plus fabric. Already had all the fibers. Also got the Country Cottage Pepperiment Lane fabric and floss. I love pepperiments.
Picked up Mirabilia Limited Edition 2008 Christmas Tree. Had to add to the other two I had gotten!!
Then I had to get the rest of the floss I needed and the fabric for the pattern my daughter picked out of for the two grandpuppies. Boy there are alot of colors in these two guys!!!
I had such fun!!!! Many thanks to Linda and the rest of the staff. They are always so nice and helpful.
On a side note the dh and I decided to go out to eat dinner last night. Had not been out for dinner in a while and there is endless shrimp going on at Red Lobster which the dh enjoys. So we get seated after a small wait order get our salad eated start to enjoy crab cake appitizer and the roof of Red Lobster catches on FIRE!!! So needles to say no endless shrimp for the dh. We ended up going to the Bass Pros Shop and had a nice dinner anyway.
