La D Da Done!

The linen color is a little washed out in this photo. My finishing pile is growing!

La D Da Lovefest

I think it will take a couple more nights of stitching to finish this one.

In a La D Da State of Mind

I just can't help myself! I think this is the last La D Da kit that I had in my stash. It's the Birdy Stitching Roll. I'm off to a good start I think.

A Little More La D Da

This stitched up,quickly! It's the front and the back of a La D Da design called Basket Weave Needle-Keep. It was a limited edition kit at one of the Nashville Markets either this year or last.

My finishing pile is growing!


Ukrainian Eggs

Another project from the August retreat that I haven't shared with you...Ukrainian Eggs by Michele Roberts. Now, don't for a minute think that I have crossed over to the "dark side". I just dipped my toes in the pool for a little bit! Truthfully, I just couldn't resist this project. The vibrant thread colors against the black congress cloth called my name. It was also a history lesson. Michele shared a lot of information with us about the symbolism of the colors and the designs.

It was a great class and I look forward to working on this again real soon!

Scissor Fobs!

Happy Saturday all! It's a beautiful day in the northland. I've been doing laundry and trying to clean up my craft room.

Can't remember if I shared a picture of these scissor fobs with you. At retreat in August, we had a class where one of our members walked us through how to make them step-by-step. I'm not a beader, so this was all new to me, but I think mine turned out quite nice. Some of the other stitchers made some pretty elaborate fobs with beautiful beads; I took the more simplistic route!

Can only clean for about another hour; we have a wedding to go to this afternoon. The bride and groom have some beautiful weather for their special day.

Stitching On...

Horrible photo, but just wanted to let you know that I'm still working on the stitching for another small project from Jackie du Plessis. Little more to go on this one yet!

Randje Week 36

Have you missed me? Not as much time for stitching this week, but I did finally finish stitching the two Randje bands from week 36. I'm still two weeks behind.
