I am finally back in my house.   What an unpleasant experience my remodel was!  So glad it's over.   Well, almost over.  They have to come back and fix their mistakes.  That's on hold for now.  Let's get back to what's important and FUN:  needlepointing.   

Some of the SWANs are headed out for a three day stitchathon at the beach.  How awesome is that?  What shall I take?  I may have to take my own car just for my stuff.

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!

I would love to start this.

Camel from Heartstrings Nativity  
  I am so close on all these but off to try out paint samples on the walls of mi casa.  Happy Stitching to you all!
