Stitchy Update

I was able to get to about the half way point on my baby Sampler:

I think it will be pretty cute when finished. Hope the receipents like it.

Yesterday was my Chicago ANG meeting. Our class was Pathways and this is my progress so far:

It is mostly a bargello type patterns. Yes my favorite colors our pink and green :)!

I also received a prize from Margorie of Moonsilk Stitches:

Today I visited the local quilt show. Boy was it inspiring! I have alway wanted to learn to quilt and this just confirmed that. I think I may have to bite the bullet.
We are off on vacation this week so probably no post next week but please come back for a visit. I am taking some smaller projects so hopefully I will have a finish!
Until next time,
May you be blessed with stitches,

A Prize, some Statsh and Some Stitching

This past week on Facebook I won a prize from th Heart of Cross Stitch. A great Tshirt and a canvas tote:

I also did some statsh shopping:

Rose Quaker Sampler, fabric and fibers. I am planning on doing this over one. I think I will be taking this on vacation to start. It is very pretty and love the colors.

I also made some progress on the birth sampler:
It is coming along slowly and surely.
We have had some great weather except for yesterday. The first day of Spring full of wet cold sleet. But today it was bright and sunny.
Until next time,

A Stitchy Update

This week I did a little statshing. This is a kit to make a silk thimble:

I saw this on onJane's Blog. They are really quite cute and where use for the sewing of kiminos. I purchased it at Chloe Patricia's Etsy Shop. I am looking forward to stitching this up!

For an update on my birth sampler:

It is coming right along. This is about a quarter of it. Today I spent the day stitching with Beth, Lelia, Tina and Sue. It was a fun afternoon of stitching, sharing and laughter. Thanks for being a great hostess Beth!
Our weather although rainy has been warmer which has been nice. Hope you are enjoying your days also.
Until next time
May you be blessed with stitches,

A Productive Week

This week I was able to stitch and finish two projects! Yahoo!!
The first was our EGA project from this past Tuesday. A new scissor case this clas was taught by Beth and was a lot of fun:

Then I got my frame weight done from ANG:

Another fun project!
Now I will be tuning my focus back on the baby sampler. Hope I make some good progress this week.!
Until next time

Some Statsh and Stitching

Well I got started on the birth sampler. Not much to see yet but it is a start"

Saturday I had my ANG meeting and this was our class project:

It will be a frame weight when finished. It is stitching up pretty quickly.
Saturday after ANG I ran over to House of Stitches to drop off something to get framed. Of course I could not walk out of there with out making some purchases :)!

I made the plunge and got my first Hawk Run Hallow. I just love this piece. I think I will be doing it with the silk. Just wanted to look it over first.

I also found this piece. It is called Stitchers Web. It is done on linen but it reminds me of some of my canvas pieces.

I also got Rose Hill Plantation. I think this is a great pice and look forward to stitching it.

In addition to my stitching this week. We got a new car. I am now the proud owner of 2010 Chevy Traverse. It sure seems big!

Until next time
May you be blessed with stitches,
