Sunday project updates

First I would be remiss to not thank each and every one of you for your lovely comments about my momma’s stitching.  It is something that we enjoy together, and as I said, I’m so grateful for that.  She had fun reading the comments, and she even commented herself…I think that’s a FIRST on this blog!

This is my design wall today.DSCN1751My Sunday Best schnibble has looked like this since Feb. 15th ish.  I should probably finish it up and get it off the wall, ya think?!

I did do one of the two first week blocks for the pinwheel quilt-a-long.DSCN1753 The other one is still in pieces on my dining room table.  Oh, and cause I know that there will be questions…this is using Essence by Sandy Gervais.

I also thought I’d show you my latest cross-stitching project.snow garden 030710 (2) This is my start on Snow Garden by Blackbird Designs.  Gosh this pic is super light!

Here is the floss for this onesnow garden 030710The fabric that I’m using is 36 ct. Frosted Cafe by Sassy’s Fabbys, and the fibers are the Weeks and Gentle Arts recommended.  I love this fabric, and I actually had the EXACT right size needed to stitch this series of houses all on one fabric.  So…I think it’s a bit lighter than what was recommended by Barbara and Alma…but it’s going to work…

While taking pictures of the wall and the new stitching, I figured I’d take pics of the other things in my stitching bag…otherwise known as a parade of really pretty projects that REALLY need to be worked on and finished

First up is the first block for the Sweet Treats series by Country Cottage Needleworks.DSCN1760 I just started this one a few weeks ago.  I felt like I needed a start…and this one is really easy on big fabric (28 ct.)

Next is the Travelling Stitcher by LHN.  Did I ever even mention that I’d put a few stitches in this one?DSCN1766

Peppermint Twist.  Not much done since the last update on this one…except for adding in the tree and branches in a couple of the blocks.pt 030710pt 030710 (3)pt 030710 (2)I think that is my favorite part of this one right now.

Last, but not least…a blast from the past.  The Red Thread series, which I believe was my New Years Day start from 2008? red thread 030710 (2)and the whole thing…red thread 030710Each time I pull out this one…I really get motivated to work on it some more.  It’s so fun and whimsical.  It also is interesting to me how unique each of these projects are.  From different designers, different styles, different colors.  And I still enjoy each of them in different ways.

OK…off to do something productive
