I'm sooooo addicted

to Belle Soie's silks

I couldn't help myself, I was going to stitch the cardinal slow, while stitching the branches, but.....that didn't happen

The fun part is over now and it didn't last very long.

I took a break from it today, stitched and finished this

The design is from The Blackbirds booklet, Honeysuckle Manor.

This was the before

Big difference, huh??!! at least the pincushion anyway

Good night! Good stitching!!

Ahhhh! Silks

Happy happy Tuesday

Yes you heard that right...silks

I ordered Belle Soie's for Tis the Season
I received them yesterday from Drema over at Needlecraft Corner, she had great prices on them. It's my first, now I'm not a silk virgin anymore. I have stitched with silk, but this is my first purchase. I think I'm going to love them, they are so soft.
I just can't afford the habit of doing it all time, so this is going to be a real treat for me

I will definitely start this evening, when all is quiet, besides the rain on the roof

I couldn't help myself to Finish this Halloween ornament. I had stitched it, then found it in my basket with the year, so thought I better put a little time into to finish finishing it

It's the Prairie Schooler little card I received when I ordered all the new ones at the same time.

That's it for now, I have to get chores done so I can settle in and stitch this evening, before work, yuck! I wish I got paid for stitching, lol
I'd reckon I'd be rich , lol

Happy stitching!!!

Happy Sunday

I found this little 14ct Aida finish at a second hand store awhile ago. I took it out of the frame, washed it and sewed it into a little pillow last night. I don't have a clue who the designer is, but I love the verse

I started In The Meadow last night too

I stumbled across a pair of the 4" Gingher Jennifer embroidery scissors

They are so pretty

Time to start some dinner

Garden of Eerie

Good morning!!

I finished Garden of Eerie yesterday

Plum Street Samplers
Stitched on 35ct putty with DMC, I changed the clouds 640 to 646 and the 3052 to WDW stepping stone, the lightening from 833 to WDW icicle. I'm not sure I will add the bottom "This work rot by me 2012" I won't be able to fit it in a already made frame for the size it is now, so I have to figure something out.

I was happy and lucky to find a frame to fit Midnight Watch by BBD

I did get the Primitive Needle Design in the frame I showed last post, but didn't get a snap

Enough of Halloween... On the Christmas stitching now

I picked out CCN, In the Meadow

And BBD, Merry Christmas Ella Vaughn

I'll honker down and start one tonight

I'm feeling like a little sewing machine quality time this afternoon

Have a great weekend!

Thursday, November 1, 2012 and antique


While at The Inspired Retreat I started this

I didn't get too much done, Old Glory by Rosewood Manor stitched on the beautiful linen called Heroic 32ct Belfast

I bought these from Cathy's shop she bought with to the retreat
Yes! tis Halloween charts, Have A Treat by Cherrywood designs and Stitch An Inch Halloween, By The Bay Needleart with a very big piece of 28ct Lugana white linen to stitch the little itty designs and then a piece of 40ct pear linen to stitch BBD Tis the Season from the Joyeux Noel, oh by the way, it's Brenda's fault, lol I won't point out the blog, lol, you know who you are, lol

I bought these grungy antiques while shopping in Shipshewana
I had good intentions cleaning the wood piece up and stitching or at least make a pretty fabric cushion for it, lol didn't happen, maybe later today
I plan on stitching a wrap for the tin piece, I have no clue what, but I'm sure I have something in my stash, if not I'll buy, lol
The old pincushion is for the wrist, you can hardly see the band, it's off left of the pincushion

I bought this frame for The Primitive Needle design at House of Stitches
I know it's a shame I was there again and this is all I bought. I was saving my money for the retreat, because I knew there would be lots of enablers there, lol and there sure was, lol, no disappointments

Now for the next picture I'm not showing you what I have stitched, but rather what I haven't because it's almost done, Garden of Eerie

Yes, one more spooky finish soon

Thats it for today, now to go stitch and see what damage I can do

Thanks so much for visiting and leaving comments, it makes my day, week, month , you get the idea ;)
