I have so much to post, being a little under the weather I could only read blogs my brain was in a bit of a fog, but it’s better now, so here goes. Here is a pictures up-date of all of my WIPs
In order from left to right, top to bottom is “His Name Is Jesus”, Rose Sampler, only one so far of the “Three Kimonos”, “African Women”, “Random Threads” (by Erica Michaels which was to be stitched on that blinding 40 ct gauze, instead I am stitching on 28 ct linen), only four of the six “Black & White” figures and last but not least “Champagner”.
I have another finish to share; it is right off the Q-snaps so it isn’t ironed don’t look at the wrinkles, my “Soldier Memorial”. I wanted to share the stitching part but out of respect I won’t show the soldiers name.
I wanted to also share some new stash I picked up at my LNS (In-Stitches Needlework) which by the way has a blog http://institchesshopblogspot.com/ on this past Sunday’s Nashville Market Sale. It was so much fun to see all of the new charts, collect some freebies and door prizes, there was even a drawing.
These are from left to right and top to bottom: * Lets Sew- Ursula Michael-Imaginating Inc., A Wicket Accident – Avry TM, Mini Pineapple Stitches- Jeannette Douglas Designs,* Keep Love- Shepherds Bush, French Country Hobby Horse-JBW Designs,* Love One Another- Little House Needlworks. * I think these were the new ones from Nashville. As I was leaving the store some half price items caught my eye and I also bought The Drawn Thread Sampler of Stitches Part One (ABC) as I’ve said before I’m not a real big sampler person but this has a lot of specialty stitches which I like learning to do.
Last night was stitch night at In-Stitches and I actually remembered to take a few pics of the shop before leaving, I’ll try to remember to get more the next time and may a few of the ladies I stitch with.
Well this is a kinda long post but that’s what happens when you stay away too long. Well I’ll try to do better, I promise. Welcome to my new followers and thank you all for stopping by. I love reading your comments. I’ll pick out another figurine to highlight next time. Need to go cook something, I’m getting hungry and then to make some wonderful little xxs.
