Tulip Tray

Last weekend I traveled with friends to Indiana to take some classes with Sherri Jones/Patrick's Woods.  We had a great time visiting our Indy stitching friends and made some new friends too!

Friday's class was the Tulip Tray.  My stitching was finished, so I was able to start the finishing.  Tonight, at home, I finished assembling the tray.  I still have to finish some of the smalls that go into the tray.  I'm quite pleased with how it has turned out so far.

My friend Chris has finished her smalls before the trip so she was able to finish her Tulip Tray on Friday while we were in Indianapolis.

She did a marvelous job finishing her piece!

Off on another mini-road trip tomorrow.  Since my iPad is on the fritz, you'll have to wait until Sunday for another update. Sorry!

Randje Week 12

I've been having trouble posting lately.  My iPad is not working right; it seems to be dying a slow death.  Tonight I'm posting the "old fashioned" way - on my desktop computer (very old; I'm surprised it works!)

We'll keep it short - here is my Randje update for Week 12!

A Small Finish

I made this small scissor fob to commemorate my upcoming trip to Indy. The design is from Patrick's Woods and I stitched it over one (rather proud of myself for that)!

Stitched with Belle Soie silks on this 32 ct. polka-dotted linen.

Looking forward to this weekend's trip!

Happy Stitching!

Margarita Anyone?

My husband and I went to Red Lobster for dinner tonight. It's Lobsterfest time! Somehow I mistakenly ordered a "Lobster-sized" raspberry margarita. That's just another way to say "jumbo". It was delicious (and I'm sad to say that I didn't quite finish it).

I continue to plug along on my Sojourner Sampler. This updated photo is a little dark. I'll take a better picture next time.

Happy Stitching!

Another Small Finish

After a weekend of stitching with guild friends, I have another small finish to share with you. It's not finished-finished, but the stitching is done. The photo is a little bit fuzzy; sorry about that!

This small scissors fob is a Catherine Theron design. Hopefully next time I'll be able to share a picture of it "finished"!

Happy Stitching!

Today's Post is Brought to You By.... mother. Look at this lovely doily she is working on!

She has a few more rows to tat yet. It's kind of like my Randje project, every week another row's instructions are posted.

We took two pictures. One on my dining room table and one on a blue towel. It needed some color in the background to make it pop.

Then look at this little purchase that I made on eBay recently. There were originally two tatting shuttles but my mother took one of them! They even included the lace from the Tatter that once owned these tools.

Gotta run. It's Downton time!

Happy Stitching!
