Rotted, but not Forgotted

Happy Thursday!!

I have 2 finish finishes

The first up is my August ornament challenge with Anna 
Not Forgotted by Plum Street Samplers 
The fabric in the background is what I used for the backing 
I found the patten in the JCS Halłoween 2012 issue, but don't look for it so fast, the charted design is not in the magazine, by mistake. I believe I had to get the pattern from her website. I printed it out and put it in my magazine

I made a pillow filled with sawdust and lavender. This design is For Spacious Skies by Heartstring Samplery.

I'm itching to start stitching something new... maybe Penny Pumpkin 
Tata, my lovely stitching peeps, until next time

WIPing Wednesday

Happy Wednesday evening!

Here's a few WIP's, I've been stitching on 
A little here, a little there

Mourning Tree Sewing Bag by Stacy Nash 

The Book of Spells by The Goode Huswife

Heartland Sampler by The Scarlett House
As you can see I'm all over the map on this one

The Red Deer Sampler  by Gigi R

I finished stitching this one..
For Spacious Skies by Heartstring Samplings
Did you notice I stitched the verse in dungarees instead of schneckley? I didn't think I would have enough to finish the verse after stitching the house, I had very little left over from another design.
I'm finishing it into a pillow, maybe with sawdust, maybe with lavender.
 Decisions! Decisions!

Tata! for now

Happy Friday! One and all

I have two finishes this week 

Autumn Posey by Plum Street Samplers 

6" shaker box

I also finished the last of the three Besty's Stockings by Plum Street Samplers 

I joined a SAL on a Halloween group on Facebook for Scream House by Just Nan 
A section a month, my first section for July is finished

Oops, except for the backstitch border

Oh, and I don't have a pic of my new start, I guess you'll have to wait until next post

I'll be back soon

Spot the Horse

Happy Tuesday,

I'm so in love with Spot the Horse finished into a pouch

Here's my dear granddaughter modeling the pouch for me 
She loves it too and keeps asking if she can take it home, I will one of these days
The backing is like a silk fabric, cut from vintage old scarf found at a second hand store
And here's a better up close view

This is the inside...
The design is by Carriage House Samplings. It's a partial design and I also changed out the sun color to accomdiate the fabric. I want to give Marly over at samplers-and-santas.blogspot credit for the inspiration to a pouch idea.

And hot off the hoops is Mustard Seed Manor Sewing Pouch
By Stacy Nash Primitives.  I have to find the black wool and golden brown wool to get it finished. 
Here's a snap of the inside of the book, and  the fabric that come with the chart

I'm on vacation for 11 days, what to do, haha, maybe more finishing??!!

Have a happy and safe Independance Day

Can anyone help??? I'd greatly appreciate it, thanks in advance 
Have a great work week

Snooty Parrots

Happy Saturday!!
I finished Snooty Parrots 
By Barbara Ana, stitched on 40ct vintage light exampler linen W/ gentle art threads

The picture looks blurry, but blogger is the only way I can post with a photo
My blogpress won't add a photo, not sure what's wrong, I upgraded my iPad to IOS 8.0
Maybe that's why 

Have a great summer
