Needlework Update

My oh my, it has been a long time since I last posted! I haven't completely neglected my stitching and I've got the pictures to prove it!

First, let me share with you an exchange piece that I received in the mail today from Dawn. This was for the Winter Wonderland exchange on the SBEBB. Our stitched design needed to include a snowman - as you can see, Dawn stitched this colorful snowman and finished it off into a bag! She did a great job finishing!



Second, here's a birthday gift that I sent out earlier this week to Jenn. Jenn was my assigned stitcher on the Stitching Bloggers Birthday group. The pinkeep is a Lizzie Kate design (one that I am particularly fond of; I've stitched it before!) I also sent Jenn the latest Britty Kitties chart (released at Nashville) along with a few other goodies.



Third, on the Friends Gather Board, I challenged my fellow stitchers to stich up one of the LHN/CC Thread Packs during the month of February. Last weekend I stitched up "Peace" (it's from the Scripture Thread Pack series). Not sure how I'm going to finish this one - I'm thinking maybe into a pillow.



Finally, I joined Myrna and Vonna in stitching Home of a Needleworker by LHN. This is my progress after one night of stitching (a long night!)



As soon as I finish up some other updates on the computer, I'm going to be reunited with my stitching chair and try to stitch up this month's Christmas ornament for the ornament SAL!

Thanks for stopping by!

Hi Cathy, beautiful gifts and exchanges! I love the fabric that you selected for the LK pinkeep; it sets off the colors so nicely.

I am working on Home of Needleworker right now, too, with the LHN group. Your progress is great!

Chelle said...

Both exchanges are sweet! The LHN you finished made me gasp. I haven't seen that one stitched up. It's gorgeous! Great finish.

Dawn said...

I am so glad you like the bag. I had fun stitching the little snowman. :)

Have a good weekend!

Those are some beautiful progresses Cathy - and the gifts from Dawn are so sweet too :-) I have the scripture series also, and am so impressed by how pretty they are stitched up!

Oh I got SO excited when I scrolled down on my Bloglines list and saw you'd updated!!!!

Your stitching (and that you've received) is lovely. I was just looking at the CHS chart last night while I was reorganizing my stash. I suspect I've joined the ranks of the SABLE club. LOL!

Wonderful exchange stitching items! Lucky Jenn : ) Lucky you [from Dawn]. The LHN is fabulous.

I may have to buy Home of a Needleworker. Everytime I see it, I like it more & more

Enjoy your stitching chair.

You have been busy and I do especially love the L*K pinkeep you have done. I must check if I have that design in my stash!
