The Village of Hawk Run Hollow


Time for some reading, writing and arithmetic.   I am finally getting around to stitching the school.  I had started on it and boogered it up real good.  It took me some time to work up the energy to tear out all the mess.   I am headed towards the finish line!

Going to Amy's


We are headed to Amy's soon for a Rent Amy Day.  Memphis is a great town and the ladies at Amy's Golden Strand are the best.   We are going to spend two whole days with them!  I am taking the White Farm by Diane Ulmer Pedersen from Painted Pony.  I took it the last time we went and am ready for my stitch suggestions for the rest of this gorgeous piece. 




I would also like to take this cute Welcome Sampler from Kelly Clark if I can find it.  I am still unpacking from moving back in my house.  Keep your fingers crossed!

Whatever Happened to the Heartstrings Nativity?


I am still working on it.  The ones that are finished haven't been "finished" because my finisher likes to make the twisted cord for the whole set at one time. I'm getting there...

Getting there on the donkey

Shelly Tribbey Cardinal Santa

 Woohoo!  I finally have something I can share with you.  I hope my MIL doesn't follow my blog since this is for her Christmas 2018.   I was inspired to stitch one of these after receiving one last Christmas.  My dear SWAN friend, SU, stitched this for me for our ornament exchange.  I LOVE IT!

So I bought this one...

Stitch ideas are from me and Carolyn Baird.  Carolyn is at Chaparral in Houston.  We drive over there as much as possible to take her studio time.  I also buy ribbon from her ribbon store in Chaparral.  What a selection!

I Really Am Stitching



I am back in my house and I am stitching.  I haven't posted much since I am working on a secret ornament and a basketweave project.  You can only look at so many pictures of basketweave.   BUT here is the finished product.   Someday it will be a pillow on the bed in one of my guestrooms.  Happy Stitching!
