Lots of Stitching; No Pictures

Hi everyone! It's Sunday afternoon in cold and snowy Minnesota. Just thought I'd post a quick note telling you that I got lots of stitching done both Friday night and Saturday night, but I can't tell you what I did. Shhhhhh, it's a SECRET!

Actually, I decided to use this weekend to stitch up two of my exchange gifts - the House Themed Exhange (The Exchange Place) and the Spring exchange (SBEBB). I still have a little bit more work to do on both of them. I may give my SALs a rest this week so that I can finish these.


Katrina asked: Is the Sampler Board stitched over one or two threads? The DT Game Board is stitched on 25ct Dublin and is stitched over two threads using two threads of floss. I'm not sure what the exact color name is on the fabric - my cut wasn't marked!

Lili asked: You have loads of stitching plans for March. When are you going to sleep? Good question Lili. I'll have to get back to you on that one!

Donnasews asked: What a cute snowman (HE Snowman Button Sampler)...Will this be a pillow? Donna, I haven't really thought about it. More than likely I will save this one to be framed...someday...

Lili asked: Your snowman button sampler is gorgeous! Can't remember the designer? Lili, the designer for this one is Homespun Elegance. She also designed a very cute Sheep Button Sampler (which I've also stitched and like alot!)

Tobie asked: Does Robin (my not-so-secret stitcher) live close to you? No, we're about a 3-hour drive apart. She lives northwest of the Twin Cities in an area known for its beautiful lakes and resorts. Great summer vacation spot!

And finally, a message for Tobie: Yes you should find your DT Game Board Sampler in the WIP bin and stitch along with Bine and me. We only stitch one-two squares a week so it is totally manageable!

Have a great week everyone!

Hi! I just added the DT Game Board to my stash a few weeks ago, I'm really going to enjoy watching you stitch on it. You have some wonderful projects going!

Hi Cathy - I can't wait to see the pictures when they can safely be shown! Glad you had a great stitching weekend.

We even had a snowy weekend here. Can you believe it? I'm LOVING it!!

Good to hear you are getting stitching time in. I enjoy seeing your game board in progress.

Did you get NeedleArts yet? Mine hasn't arrived & I wondered about the Mystery Sampler.

Sorry about the delete :) Sometimes I get really carried away and my fingers and my eyes don't always agree on typing...hence...TYPO's :) LOL!
