Almost Another Month Has Gone By...



All the Christmas stitching is done.  I will post pictures as soon as I can with that stuff but one to something new.  For some reason I just love these giant samplers.  I bought this one after seeing the finished product on The Silver Needle's website.  I got the linen and threads called for.  It's a bit like stitching a blanket but I've been there before with The Village of Hawk Run Hollow.

Here's what I've done so far 
Hopefully this will look great over my mantel some day.   Happy Stitching.

A Whole Month????



I can't believe it's been a whole month since I posted.  I am so sorry about that.  I have been stitching away on my Secret Santa ornament and that project should be completed tonight.  I can't post any of it until after it is given in December.  While I was waiting on the thread I needed to finish that secret project, I pulled out this girl.

She's from Painted Pony Needlepoint Designs and I call her Kitty Witch.  She has been in time out for a long while.  So long, in fact, that I don't remember what the white thread is on the wings.  That will take an investigative trip to The Needle Works to figure out.  Wish me luck.  In the meantime I stitched her sleeves with Neon Rays in a scotch variation.    All stitch selections are mine.

Building Walls


I am stitching the walls with three strands of silk in the Staggered Cross stitch.   Very cute!

The Roof is On


The roof is on House #5.  I used three strands of silk in the Fern Stitch.

Roofing on Sunday


This is the roof of the fifth house. I outlined the black with three strands of silk.   The fern stitch on the lower right is from the guide.  The upper shingle is my idea.  I think I will stick with the guide.  That Amy knows her business!

Another Landscape???



Yes, but it's the Halloween House Row from Melissa Shirley.  I can't stop stitching this cute thing.  It is that much fun.  I really need to be finishing up the Christmas items for this year.  I think I will give myself the Memorial Day weekend and then get back to business.    I bought the canvas, stitch guide and threads from Amy's Golden Strand.

Report from Amy's Golden Strand





We had a wonderful time!  Six SWANs took off for Memphis for stitching, eating and visiting.  Jill and Amy were as charming and gracious as they always are.  We saw some other Memphis friends and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.   I asked Amy for stitch ideas for The Village.
