Home of a Needleworker SAL

I made good progress with Home of a Needleworker (LHN) this week. Our "official" SAL night is Wednesday, but I didn't have time to stitch until Thursday and then a little bit more on Friday night while watching the U of M Golden Gopher Men's Hockey team beat Michigan Tech. Sorry for the wrinkles - I stitch "in hand" and I didn't take time to press before taking the picture!



My redwork exchange was received by Andrea in the U.K. this week. The design is from With My Needle and was in the Just Cross Stitch 2006 Ornament issue. As you can see, I finished it into a pinkeep. Sent lots of fibers to Andrea as well as an Altoid's tin (chocolate covered mints) and a Whitman's tin (asstd chocolates).


I've been busy this weekend working on my second PIF gift. Tonight I plan to stitch two or three more squares on my Game Board Sampler (The Drawn Thread) too! Thanks for stopping by!

That is a beautiful redwork pinkeep you made - and I'm 100% sure that the other goodies were also appreciated & enjoyed. :)

Your CHS project is lovely. She's such a great designer, and there are so many ways to use her designs.

After some long absence I come back to visit your blog. You worked lovely things recently for you and to give. I'm sure that you'll go on with as much success.

I am stitching HoaNW to Cathy, started it last year and it is just sitting in my sewing basket, had a bit of a tidy up in there this morning and thought I must get too it again.
Your SGB is looking pretty swish too.

The little redwork piece is cute also. Andrea is a lucky lady.
