Brave and Faithful

This sweet piece is from Little House Needleworks. It is one of the Scripture thread packs Diane put out a few years ago. I've loved the colors and verse on this since I bought it and finally stitched it up. It's done on 28 ct Lt. Mocha Cashel.

This dainty little piece was an afternoon project for me on Saturday. It is Shepherd's Bush "Brave One." It's stitched with silks, one of the many reasons I love Shepherd's Bush kits! It was hard to capture the daintiness of this piece so I photographed it from the side.

Until next time,

Model Stitching and a Gift

First, I had the great priviledge of stitching another model for Nikki Leeman from Country Cottage Needleworks. "Our Love Nest" is such a sweet design and I really enjoyed stitching it.

I made my first ever floss tag for my friend Wendy Jo. Her birthday was last week and I know how much she loves patriotic designs. I stitched a freebie from Lizzie Kate (one of her favorite designers) and started the process. I must admit, I had to have my husband help me with the eyelet, it's so nice having a hubby that is a handyman! Anyway, it wasn't too complicated and I will probably do this type of finish again.

I am working on one of the LHN Scripture Packs now. I am almost finished with "Faith" and hope to have a picture of it up here in the next week or so.

Until next time,

First and Last

I need to do some catch up here. Above is an ornament that I sent to Wendy Jo. It was a freebie from a blog. I changed some colors and didn't stitch the border on it. I sent a couple of other little things along with it, you can see what I sent on her blog. She sent me a lovely package shown below. That Lavendar Hand Scrub you see there is Wendy's own creation. It's a wonderful scrub, my hands smell so good and are so soft after I use it. Thanks again Wendy Jo! I love it all!
Below is a finish that I had back in the early fall, LHN's "Liberty and Justice." I want to finish this one as a pinkeep.
I had the great privilege to model stitch for Nikki of Country Cottage Needleworks. I stitched "Autumn Pumpkins." Such a fun autumn piece!

When I started the L*K Snowman below, I was going to give him to a co-worker. But as I progressed on him I liked him so much I kept him for myself. I used all the colors called for and fabric called for. He's such a cutie!

And now my first finish of 2012. I started this little L*K "Last Minute December Kit" a couple of nights ago. It's a really quick stitch and so festive.

Until next time,
