Judith Kirby Victorian's UFO

Happy Monday!

Yesterday I got bored and found a box to go through. This is what I found


Judith Kirby's House Number 9 & 15. I had lots of pewter aida, so when house number 15 came out I cut it to size for both, yipee!! I just hope she didn't come out with another one to add, lol
I am really going to try to finish this one this year. It's been so many years since I started it. I plan to stitch on it later tonite.
This was also in the box.

It is "Wild Rose" stamped embroidery 58" X 86" oblong tablecloth kit by Tobin. I believe I bought it from the Herrschners catalog, along time ago.

I better scoot so I can do some spring cleaning.

Be good!!

Such pretty charts to be hidden away and forgotten like that! I wonder what other treasures you will find in this flurry of spring cleaning.

I'm awaiting my fabby from Sassy Fabrics on my Judit Kirby's. She is doing a little special 'something' for me. :0) Can't wait! Finish yours! You've given me inspiration!

Suzanne said...

They are such lovely charts. I saw them done on anothe blog and always wondered who the designer was. That's a lovely tablecloth.

What a great find!! They are gorgeous designs. Ranae, I have e-mailed you regarding Princess Parade but am not sure if you received my e-mail as I am having problems with it, could you please leave a comment letting me know if you received the e-mail or not, thanks.

Shelleen said...

I love both of those charts and I do have one of them.

Christine said...

Great find! Do you think you have many more hidden away?

Sadie said...

What lovely finds! Just like stash shopping but without spending. I have fallen in love with No. 9
That is going straight onto my wishlist.

Melanie said...

Nice finds! Enjoy working on your new-found WIPs.

Wendy said...

Wow, that is a great finding. You did a wonderful start on it. Those are really lovely designs.

Siobhan said...

Isn't it fun finding odd bits and pieces--especially when there's a good bit of stitching already done?! Looks great!

Meari said...

Those are neat charts! Isn't it fun to go through stash? LOL

Tammy said...

Believe it or not, I have the one you are stitching! I haven't stitched it yet, but LOVE it! Yours is looking great.

Kim B said...

What a great find!!! I haven't been stitching long enough to have UFOs lying around, but I imagine finding one and feeling re-energized to finish it has got to be exciting :)

Aussie Stitcher said...

Dear Ranae, thanks so much for letting me know that the e-mail didn't get through. The P O Box at Bairnsdale is still my current mailing address. If you see me working on anything that you like and you would like the chart, please let me know and I would be very happy to pass it on to you once finished. Thanks again and take care (((HUGS)))

Those Halloween Victorians are so cute. I will be following the progress.

Carol R said...

What a lucky find! I have been checking out ebay for those two patterns since I saw an RR with both houses stitched at the top! I look forward to watching your houses grow!
(And if you want to trade/sell your patterns when you've done, please email me!)

Michelle said...

I've got those two Halloween charts stored away too. I should really start them!

CindyMae said...

Oooh, arn't you glad that you decided to go through that box! Great finds!!

AFwife99 said...

Ranae, Thanks for letting me know that you got the pattern! I am looking forward to starting the snowflake too. Enjoy your good weather!

Sharon said...

What a cool find! I think you will finish in a flash!

Kathy said...

I love those Judith Kirby Halloween designs. Those should be fun to finish.

Have been looking for those charts to add to my stash. Actually I want to stitch them right away if I had them. Have you considered selling them when you are done with them?
