Hot Off The Needle! Lizzie*Kate's Halloween Rules ~ stitched on 14 count Aida called Dark Moss using DMC threads. As you can see I stitched the charts side by side to make a shorter picture (easier to frame). I am SO glad this is finished! LK Halloween

Home Of A Needleworker

I have always wanted to stitch this chart. So much in fact, that I purchased the chart TWICE! Once I realized my over zealous-ness of this chart I knew I needed to get stitching this. Well here it is! I made a few changes...my name is rather long so I re-positioned the bird and only stitched the numeric year. I can't wait to get it framed now!

Chart is SOLD!

Season of Hope

What a quick stitch this was even though I made a pretty big boo-boo! If you look at the original chart and then look at my stitching you will see that the top portion was stitched two boxes too high ~ didn't realize until I was ready to put the roof portion on the houses. I think I adjusted the pattern quite well!

Chart is SOLD!

Tweet!

This one is hot off the needle last night! Disappointed that you can't see the snow on the ground by the bunnies or on the trees for that matter either. Changed the TWEET color from DMC712 to DMC3777.

CCN ~ March Cottage

I just finished stitching this March cottage this past weekend. These stitch up SO fast. I used moss marbled aida for this one and I left a light on in the right upstairs window. Perhaps someone is stitching up there or reading. :)

February Cottage

Just finished putting the last of the stitches in on Country Cottage Needleworks ~ February Cottage! I dyed this white Aida 14 count fabric with cherry kool-aid and am tickled 'pink' with the great results. So much in fact, that I am going to try dying another piece with lemonade flavor for the April cottage chart hitting LNS's at the end of the month.

My latest WIP (Work In Progress)

As a motivator to get some of the few WIP's I have started, finished this year...each Friday I am going to post 'bits' of the current piece I am working on. Can you guess what this piece is?

Christmas

Here is my latest finish...just a plain hand towel with the pattern from The Sunflower Seed called Lil' Christmas. I adjusted the height of the letters to fit within the stitching area of the towel. No buttons will be added because I want the recipient to be able to use the towel.

Happy New Year!

Sorry I'm a little late in wishing everyone a Happy New Year...but like they say, Better Late Than Never At All!

I did quite a bit of stitching over the holidays and since my last post in October...but as things go, no pictures were taken, I can't and won't re-stitch them just for a picture, so I will just move on!

Here is a quite, quick stitch that I have to share with you! It's by Sam Sarah Designs called America. I have the full-sized leaflet for sale...but please note the less than perfect conditions noted in the FOR SALE area.
