What Have I Been Stitching?

I'm kind of stuck on this one. It's With My Needle from the Goode Huswife. The top half is almost done....

Hope your weekend was filled with stitchy goodness!

And I have a few more words to stitch on the top line....

Disappearing Act

After posting to this blog every day during the month of February, I took a brief hiatus. My friends commented last weekend about my absence, but yesterday, while visiting the Mad Tatter, she scolded me. She looks forward to seeing regular blog updates. Guess I better not disappear again!

Last weekend, our guild organized a stitching weekend at a local hotel. Two days of stitching bliss. With friends. And good food. Doesn't get any better than that!

I worked on Spring Delivery from With Thy Needle and Thread. I also stitched another spool design from Milady's Needle.

Tonight I finished Spring Delivery.

While visiting the Mad Tatter yesterday, I took a photo of the tatted doily on her dining room table.

She is having fun tatting Ice Drops and I found a tree for her to display them on.

While traveling this week, I worked on the Strawberry Needlecase from Catherine Theron. This matches the biscornu that I finished stitching last month.

Won't take long to finish the stitching on this.

I am going to need to find a weekend or two (or three) in the near future for finishing. Lots of projects waiting to be finished!

Progress Made

Modest progress, but progress nonetheless.

Love this little freebie from La D Da. It was kitted up by one of our local needlework shops. That shop isn't around anymore...

Can't believe that tomorrow is March 1!

Tired Eyes Again

So tonight's post is short and sweet. Red Deer Sampler from Birds of a Feather.

And this is how my Josie felt about Monday morning. Trust me, I felt the same way.

Hoppin' Around

It feels like Spring up in our neck of the woods and so I hopped on over and started this rabbit design from With Thy Needle and Thread. Good progress for just a couple hours of stitching!

Tomorrow is Monday.... :(

Ready for Finishing

Stitching on this little bunny is done. He's ready for finishing! The spool in the kit is unfinished, so I'll have to take care of that first. Need some paint or stain and sandpaper....not my favorite part of finishing!

I took photos today of some of my older framed pieces. Remember this one?

It's called Hillside School of Handworke and it is from Hillside Samplings.

I dug another bunny piece out of my stash today. I'll share it with you tomorrow!
