My Quilt

I took a little break from stitching to get one of the quilts made I am giving to my daughters for Christmas. I hope to get about 3 made before the holidays but here's hoping. It's a Trip Around The World quilt made with 9 different fabrics. Turned out quite well considering I rushed it.

I also knitted these 3 scarves for my sister and her two girls.

Needlepoint Stockings

These stockings were started by a friends mother and never finished. I took them and finished a little bit of the needlework-naming etc and then sewed them together-she was quite pleased!

Mary Beale Sampler wreath in Progress

Finally took a beak from my Mirabilia Queens to add a few stitches to this. I hope to get it finished this year. I am also working on my Shepherds Bush stocking for myself since I made one for everyone else so I kind of laid this aside.

And They Sinned Framed

Well finally after almost 1 1/2 yrs I finally got this done. The frame matched beautifully. Cindy at Fancimats and my husband had a really good eye to matching the frame to the design. If you are ever in Denver make sure you stop by there. It''s a great little shop with a wonderful choice of stitching supplies.

Christmas Ornaments by Shepherds Bush

I finally found the charms for these so I got them finished. Just a start on my yearly ornaments. These are 4 of the Shepherds Bush from Just Cross Stitch Ornament issues. I will do 8 others from other designers thru the year. My tree is full but I manage to cram more each year. Took time off from stitching today to knit my SIL a scarf to replace the one she lost. Also 2 of my Stepsons are herefor Spring Break so we will be enjoying them for a week.

Sampler Lakeside

Well I finished the lake but wasn't thrilled with my outcome. I suggest that you use the same method as the grass when doing the lake. Diagonally - maybe it would give it a little less blocky look but I wasn't about to rip it out and try to find out. It looks nice tho'. hopefully this weekend I will get most of that part finished.

And They Sinned update

Well yesterday was a bummer. I had to rip out everything I did the night before because trying to watch TV and stitch...........I started the tiny tree under the wrong leaf so that made everything else offside... well what's another day in a 2 year project eh? Will have to get an updated pic up also.

On Page 3 the star on the right-below the fence-is up one stitch from the rest of the row.
