Enough of all that, on with the stitching pictures.
I stitched this little guy at the retreat I went to in September. He was a quick stitch. The chart came from the 2011 JCS Halloween issue. In case you are wondering what on earth is under my stitching it is Indi's kennel. It sits in the front part of the house and gets the best light during the day.
I started LittleHouse Needleworks "Liberty" in the summer. I then took a class and did some model stitching so it got shoved aside for a bit. I am glad it is finished. It will be made into a pillow some day I hope. I used the called for linen and threads.
This next one was also a very quick stitch. It is from Threadwork Primitives. You can find her charts on Esty. I used an unknown scrap from my stash. I used the following threads: WDW Mascara, Terra Cotta and Hazelnut, DMC 828 and 3021. I really like this one. My picture does not do it justice at all.
I mentioned that I took a class this summer. The class was taught by Ellen Chester of With My Needle. I finished my stitching and sent it of to the finisher. I got it back a couple of weeks ago. Below is the front, inside and back of my "Long May She Wave" needlebook. I just love it. Ellen had some wonderful history and slides to show during her class.
These next two are not my stitching by those of a wonderful new stitching friend and designer Beth Twist of Heartstring Samplery. I did some model stitching for her this summer and she sent me this wonderful package to thank me. I was so in awe and never expected her to do this. I was my pleasure to stitch for her. The note cards I believe are made from one of her photographs. She is a very talented lady. Thank you again Beth.
If you have made it this far, thank you for sticking with me. I will try to not be so long between posts next time.
