Did She Really Start Something New???

Yes, she did.  It's called Let the Earth Be Glad by Diane Ulmer Pedersen from Painted Pony Needlepoint Designs.  I bought it at The Needle Works and took it to Amy's.  This beautiful sky stitch is a slanted brick using two strands of Dinky Dyes overdyed silk was recommended by Amy Bunger.  Perfection!

The Fires are Lit at The White Farmhouse

It doesn't seem like much for a couple of hours stitching but there was a lot of trying this and that.  I settled on Fabulous Fibers in this pale smoky blue.  It is just a little satin stitch.

The White Farm Gets a Front Door

And a couple of other details.  I stitched the front gate, the front door and the chimneys.   I need to stitch the smile coming from the chimney.

No She Didn't

Yes she did.  Merry Christmas to me.  I bought this canvas from The Needle Works here in Austin.   They are having a trunk show of Painted Pony Needlepoint Design canvases.  It's called Let the Earth Be Glad.  I took it to Amy's and she gave me a couple of stitch ideas.

Missing Memphis Already

Once again we had the best time in Memphis.  Eating, stitching and visiting with dear friends there.  FABULOUS!  I took the White Farm by Diane Ulmer Pedersen from Painted Pony Needlepoint Designs.  I was ready for Amy to give me the stitches for the rest of the piece.

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!
