Weekend at D's Lakehouse



I got to spend about 24 hours out at the lake with the SWANs. It was a short break from the remodel. I took the Hart Hunt from Diane Ulmer Pedersen by Painted Pony Needlepoint Designs.  The stitch guide is by Amy Bunger from Amy's Golden Strand.  I got two fields done since we do nothing but eat, stitch and sleep.  And visit the whole time we are awake.  It is so much fun.  I had to leave early to remortar my new fireplace but it turned out really well so all is good.


Third field up is Horizontal Victorian in two strands of silk




Fourth field up is Florentine Spike in two strands of overdyed cotton

How I Miss My Stitching

My enormous house remodel is in the last 45 days.  Y'all know I am over there day and night making sure it's all done just right.  I am so excited about moving back home but really really want to be stitching!

NO SHE DIDN'T!


Yes, she did!  I went to Chaparral in Houston to have studio time with the wonderful Carolyn Baird!   More about that on Monday but while I was there I spotted this sweet sweet canvas.  Happy Valentine's Day to me.  Isn't it sweet?  Another cute one to add to the stash!

What Did I Do This Weekend????


I went out to the lake with the SWANs and almost finished this little cutie!  I did not have a suitable thread for the collar or the right shade of gray for the outline of the sleeve but almost!  It's for my nephew.  Wreck 'em!
