Happy Tuesday!!!
Here is an update of my Wednesday's SAL
Sorry for the dark photo's, it's very dark and gloomy here today.
Summer House by BBD
Thanks so much to Jolene for sending the the HTF Dandelion Stem needed for my leaves. Thanks to the couple of stitchers that looked for it in your LNS.
Jolene HAD an awesome La D Da giveaway, she is new to blogging so go and check her out. I did have her giveaway link on my side bar, I have to remember to remove it.
Tattingchic has a giveaway, that link is in my sidebar.
Friday's SAL

Earth Sampler

My goal is a line a week, so it should only take 2 months to finish,lol

That 40ct Ale took awhile for my eyes to adjust then the thread was knotting, great start!!

And here are photo's of Kellie's room painted

The green is much darker like a army green

I made the curtains to match her bed spread not too shabby huh?!

We also took some camouflage ribbon and made her a tack board. We may decide to put a border up too, I just have to recover from all the painting, lol

CindyMae has been designing her own cross stitch, go check out her freebies, she also has a store now.

TammyK has been designing too, she has some adorable freebie witches, also another good check it out blog.

I RAK'd Deb with two beaded scissors FOB's you can see them on her blog.

I was going to kit up Sunflower Fairy out of CS&N, it's hard mtching up those Valdani threads with dmc. I went to their website and found a few WDW threads to the conversion but not all the colors. Any suggestions??

Also on my Earth Sampler pic, do I have my q-snaps on wrong??

I know I am backwards.

Some asked about my ATS... it's not back yet from the framers, hopefully soon though

Well, I think that covers everything for now. I have lots of mail and blogging to do.

Thanks so much for your continued support, it's so appreciated

Hi Ranae,

I am so glad I could help you out on the dandelion stem thread, it really does exist! I think the green accent wall in the bedroom looks great! What a fun color. Decorating is right up my alley, too. Love the bunny on your new start. Bet you'll have it done before two months!!!

CindyMae said...

Pumpkin said...

Someone's been busy stitching and decorating!!!! Nice work :o)

I love that you linked to other Blogs. It's nice to see what others are up to.

Suzanne said...

Summer House is looking great. It was good of Jolene to help you out.

Great start on Earth Sampler, it's a fun one to stitch!

Great job with the painting, I really love that green colour for the wall.

tkdquintmom said...

Ok you are the second one I've seen who is doing this Earth Sampler and I just love this thing! Who is the designer??? Please tell me! lol

mainely stitching said...

That's the way I use my Q snaps, though I know there are also people who put them the other way around so the work area is lower. I like it higher - it's easier to see everything IMHO.

I love green, but I'm not sure I'd be able to handle an army green wall. Yours looks great, though!

Sadie said...

Nice WIP's. Glad you got the floss you needed. Kellie's room looks wonderful, your curtains match perfectly.
Have a great week x

Annie said...

New start will grow fast, i bet its all done before the 2 months

Kathy said...

My goodness you have been busy. Your stitching looks great. I love both those designs.
And the color in the bedroom is wonderful. I love greens. All shades. Great job on the curtains too.

Great job on your finish AND the curtains! I love that color green too.
I really like that earth sampler.
That is how I use my qsnaps and I'm never wrong, Haha. But seriously, if it works for you then it's right for you.
