Heart Pinkeep

Happy Leap Day! everyone
I have a finished finish
And I love it!

I tried different places to get the most impressive shot, the lighting is different in each spot

I couldn't make up my mine and seeing I snapped 50 photo's I picked these

Needles & Pins Heart Pinkeep by With thy Needle & Thread

I also finished Garden of Love as a little cushion

The fabric is the backing

Now it can be put in the 2012 smalls basket

Have a most lovely extra day!

Hush! little Baby, don't say a word

Mama's gonna buy you a Mocking Bird

Mocking Bird by La D Da
Stitched on 40ct maritime linen w/DMC

I thought for sure I would finish it in 2011, I was that close
Should I change it or leave it? I never stitch the date until it's done

I started the 2012 small for March

Small Token by Blackbirds Design
32ct pearled barley linen w/CC threads

My bird is stitched with Black Coffee because I didn't have the Muddy Puddle
Ha! I put the date on that one just to teach myself a lesson, lol

I couldnt resist this one after browsing the leaflet

Bunnies by Prairie Schooler #178

Two bluebirds, actually three

Happy Sunday!!!!

It feels so good to be home this weekend.
My dad was at the hospital for six days, long story short, he had two stents put in his left side of his heart. He feels so much better then he has for awhile now. There was three days last weekend that I didn't even open my laptop. I tried to stitch the first two days waiting and waiting at the hospital for test, but I messed up and frogged so much I just gave up, the frogger won, lol

I did get Needles & Pins Heart Pinkeep finished last night

By With Thy Needle & Thread
stitched on 36ct cinnamon roll linen
The oil can is still in waiting for it to be mounted, that's another day.
I just want to relax and stitch

I also finished Scare A Crow early this morning

I dug out one of my oldest UFO
Monopoly gameboard, I plan to put a few stitched in this afternoon
Yes! stitched on Aida

I bought a couple embroidered bluebirds in frames at a secondhand store a long time ago. I stumbled across them the other day. I took them out of the frames that had old cards and brown tape. I threw them in the washing machine, ironed them, which brought out their old musty smell. Now they are two pillows. I own one and Brianna has the other one.

Well! Thats all for today

I'm going to make some lunch, stitch down

and watch my recorded shows I missed last week

Block 7

Block 7 /Houses of Hawk Run Hollow is finished, yay!!!

I've been fighting a head and chest cold all week. It has given me lots of down time to spend stitching. I will start to stitch block 8 for the rest of tonight and tomorrow, then I put it down for awhile. Maybe I will pull out Witches Hollow, we'll see what the mood is

Thanks for stopping by

Valentine Stitching

Happy Monday!!!!

A Token of Friendship freebie by Lori of Notforgotten Farms

I stitched this little baby up in a few short hours and even finished it into a pincushion

I stitched it on 35 Mocha w/Belle Soie threads, Vanilla Pudding and Fresh Raspberies, filled with crushed walnuts. The backing fabric is shown in the next photo

I plan on giving this away

Oh! It will look different. I messed the design up bad. I placed the F in the wrong place and before I caught it, I had most of Friendship stitched. So... I added the hearts on the left of the design.

And here's my February small for the 2012 Year of Smalls Blog

Garden of Love by Citrouille's Designs

36ct Truffle w/ Belle Soie Silk

You have been asking about the kitty, and I have forgotten to add pictures of her

It's been quite awhile since I posted her

Thanks for stopping by

Have a great work week everyone
