Additional pieces...

I just "pre-inherited" some items from my grandmother.  She recently moved from an apartment to a group home so she had to downsize.  These were items that I had stitched for her over the years so I'm glad that I got them back.

Here is a photo of them incorporated in with the items that I already had.  They are all identified below the photo.  Items with a * had been my grandmother's.

Left to right: 
  • Rune Sampler* from DracolairCreations
  • Hummingbirds* from Stoney Creek's Stitched Elegance book
  • Viola's Lace Sampler - my own design
  • Hummingbird Sampler* from Cross Stitch & Country Crafts March/April 1990
  • English Cottage Sampler from Teresa Wentzler
  • Footprints in the Sand from Leisure Arts, leaflet #378
  • White Musings Mystery Sampler from The Gift of Stitching May/June/July/August 2007
  • Waiting for Ships from Mirabilia
  • Proverbs 31:13 from Stoney Creek's Stitched Elegance
  • Cathy (Hardanger)* from Leisure Arts, leaflet 330 Teach Yourself Hardanger Embroidery
  • Raphael's Angels - not sure of the designer information
Happy Stitching!


Dragonflies WIP update

Hey All!

A few days ago, I had another page finish on my QS Dragonflies.  That means that I've finished the first 6 of 9 pages.  The bottom row of pages aren't full pages either, so I'm getting close to a finish!

Here it is so far:

The details:  28ct. Monet's Garden from PTP (ordered from 123stitch), stitched 1x1.

Happy Stitching!

Christmas Stitching Challenge

Well, it's time for the first Christmas Stitching Challenge update.  This is for any Christmas-related cross stitch.

I did get an ornament done already this year!  This one is a kit from Dimensions.  I didn't even remember that I had it - I found it when I went to grab a different ornament kit.  This one was barely started so I decided it was as good a place to start as any.

Here he is:

Details:  Dimensions Wind Chimes Kit #8765 - Santa Giving Gifts

The wind chimes and jingle bells were part of the kit.

That's one more ornament for my Santa tree later this year.

Happy Stitching!
