For the Cure

Every year, Diane Williams from Little House Needleworks and Lois from Elegant Stitch get together and design a piece that benefits breast cancer research. When I saw the one for this year, I immediately called Lois and ordered it. It's called "Remember Me" and it stitched up very quickly. If you ordered this and haven't stitched it yet, be aware that there is not enough of the floss included and you will need to call Lois, she has more in the same dye lot. The finish of this intimidated me for a while. I let this piece sit for quite a while before I attempted it. Once I got started though, it wasn't hard at all, it's just those beads that make it look a bit imposing to start. I love the colors in this piece and I love that it benefits breast cancer research.

Until next time,


I have been in the Halloween stitching mood lately. Here is Lizzie Kate's "Halloween" from "Halloween Thrillogy." It's stitched on Willow Green Cashel. I didn't want to spend the money on the sterling silver spider charm so I improvised and used a button instead. I thought it turned out cute.

Here is Sue Hillis's "Black Hat Society". It's stitched on an aida, I can't remember what the name of it was. I stitched it years ago and just now got around to finishing it.

That's all for now, I'll be back later with more.

This Mary Garry witch is from one of the Seasonal Mementos patterns. I just think she has some great character. I'm thinking she's a good witch.

I did Lizzie Kate's "Welcome Fall" from Autumn Things then put it in this great pillow by Stitch a Gift. Thought it matched nicely. I did change a couple of the colors to more closely match the pillow. I have another finish, Summer Line Up by the Trilogy but I want to try my hand at making another pinkeep before I post it.

I've started another Lizzie Kate design too. I chose "Halloween" from Halloween Thrillogy. It's stitched on a great Willow green fabric. It's a fun design.

Until next time,
