I had a whole Saturday to stitch last weekend and got the second field from the bottom up done. It looks good. I started the bottom field but I am not feeling it with that stitch. Amy had suggested a different one but it is a difficult one for me to stitch. I should have listened. Amy is always right. Frogging it this weekend and going with her original.

Now that The White Farm is finished I'm headed back to The Hart Hunt. A hart is a red deer which is conspicuously missing from the canvas. We love it no less. I'm stitching this using a guide from Amy Bunger. It's available for sale on her website, Amy's Golden Strand. Stay tuned for progress on this beauty.

I can't believe I actually finished something! I love The White Farm by Diana Ulmer Pedersen from Painted Pony. All the stitch selections and thread selections were by Amy Bunger. What perfection!

I stitched the trees to the right of the house using the fly stitch and one strand of Wildflowers. The background was already stitched using one strand of Lorikeet in the alternating T-stitch. It's very subtle and very pretty. These are all ideas I got from Amy Bunger at my last Rent Amy Day.
I finished the moo cow and filled in the wall behind her. She needs her tail, face and udder finished up.

I am going to see Amy Bunger soon so I thought it best to get this done! I am almost there. I had run out of the overdyed wool Threadworx that she had recommended for the barn. I got it and stitched the door.
Next came my moo cow. This fellow is being stitched with two strands of Burmilana in Encroaching Gobelin.

Some of the SWANs went on a little retreat. I managed to stitch most of this cutie in the three days we were gone. It's for one of the Longhorns in my family. Happy Stitching!

I really loved my Christmas tree this year. We got a new one for our new space and it worked so well. I just took it down and I didn't really want to. Ready to be packed up!

I am so sorry to tell you that The Needle Works here in Austin is closing March 16! I know that Colleen has been trying to sell the business for six months but has had no serious inquiries. There is a video on her website if you would like to hear her talk about it. The SWANS are so sad. I guess I better hustle up a new dining table since we will be stitching at each other's homes. My DR is empty right now(except for the new rug I got for Christmas).

Happy New Year to all my stitching friends! Any stitching resolutions? I resolve to let stitching consume most of 2019! I have three nativity sets going and I would really like to finish them up!
