Watch out! Anna, I'm winning this one

Happy Thursday!

I thought I would share some things I'm working on


Happy Hearts




Red Deer Sampler

Here's the story behind my title

I finished a bunny ornament for the month of January
Anna (wis-northwoods-stitching.blogspot.com) and I are doing a ornament a month of any holiday. The person who doesn't complete an ornament each month has to stitch the other one an ornament, ha I'm sure I won't win. I never win any of our competitions. But..... I love to get stitchy things done by others, so I will win this one, watch out Anna you better prepare to start me a ornament, lol





Here are three of the nine to be stitched.


The designers of these adorable Bunnies is Prairie Schooler, book#178

Back to regular scheduled stitching

First stitches of 2015

Happy Stitchy 2015!!!

I stitched quite abit the first week into the new year

I started Red Deer Sampler by Gigi


I had to start in the middle because the linen was cut so wonky, that's ok cuz I love that big flower

Then I started Samplers 4 Saisons by Anagram Diffusion


I started at the upper left hand corner, which is unusual for me. I usually start on the bottom right. I guess it's time to shake things up abit

And then I got the urge to pull out Happy Hearts by Birds of a Feather


That's all the news I have now...

Tata!

Which one??

I wish everyone a very Happy and prosperous New Year 2015!!

I went shopping.... And decided to buy The Red Deer Sampler by Gigi R
I've been eyeing it for awhile now.






The linen is 36ct Confederate Grey

The fibers below are for the Samplers 4 Saisons





Each color is for a season and the brown for the tree. The linen is 40ct Flax

So now I have to decide which one to start tomorrow,

You say...

Both of them

I say "O.K."

I'm not sure how much I will get to stitch on them, we are going out of town with the kids to a Wisconsin Dells indoor waterpark hotel.

Be safe

Let's talk New Years Day

Sooooo I'd love to hear what everyone has kitted up or wants to kit up to stitch for the New Year

Photos are taken from the internet

This is what I'm thinking of starting....

Anagram Diffusion "Sampler 4 Saisons"

I love the red but....
I plan on stitching the different seasons in different soft colors





I downloaded the pattern from www. Broderie.net. I believe it cost 6.50 in US dollars



11 page pattern, the stitch count is 320X320. I have to shop for the 40ct linen and the 4 thread colors. I need to go to a shop to do a floss toss, before the 1st

When I first saw this pattern of course I googled and also fell in love with two designs also from Anagram Diffusion




"Elements"








"Ying Yang"


Has anyone ever stitched these designs or any others?

What is going to be your New Year Start?

Please don't hold me to this design, lol, I have a right to change my mine

I'm thinking, I better go get busy stitching what I have in my bag, lol

Tata for now

Nordic Yuletide

Hello!!

I finished one of the Nordic Yuletide ornament






By Summer House Stitche Works

I'm stitching all the ornaments on 28ct Natural linen with silver from Fabric Flair with the champagne ice mill hill beads. I'm using the same linen for the back.

Here's an actual better picture of it and also my start on another one






I love everything about these and won't stop until I stitched them all.
There are 7 designs in the chart and two more in the 2014 JCS ornament and JCS preview issues.

Take care and be safe this holiday season
