I was going to say that I was once again late with my blog post; however there is no deadline or specific time I have to post so here I am. As I’ve said before I love that you all come to visit and leave great comments, questions, and compliments, but it is totally beyond me as to why? Don’t get me wrong, I definitely don’t want you all to stop but it is surprising that so many of you keep coming back to read what an old woman writes and to see what she stitches next. Awwww Haaaaa! That’s it, isn’t it? It’s the stitching J well I do like to stitch the not so usual and it doesn’t matter to me who the designer is.
Let’s see what news do I have to share… I received the latest issue of Cross Stitch & Needlework magazine and it has the most adorable design on the cover “Witchy Witch” by Ursula Michael and another inside (a spooky haunted house) “Spooktacular” by Alma Lynne Hayden. There is also a brand new 12 part series by Joan Elliott “Treasures of Christmas” these are just a few, looks like a very good mag.
I also received a copy of A Cross-Stitch Christmas Handmade Memories from Craftways, it is also chucked full of wonderful charts and Christmas card ideas.
I got a few tips from a friend on facebook about some very useful apps. Just think have you ever wished you could keep an inventory of all of your flosses and have it on your iphone or ipad, well wish no more there is an app for DMC, GAST, WDW, Crescent Colors, Anchor and even HDF. Go to your app store and search for xstitcher, all of the apps should come up. These are not free apps but for $1.99 each they are a bargain.
Ok, ok I’ll get on with what you came to see, some stitching. Here is the Needleworker ready to be ironed and framed.
And my latest projects, first one is #3 in the Little House Needleworks Hometown Holiday series “Caroling Quartet”. I am stitching it on an unidentified piece of fabric from my stash with the recommended CC and DMC threads. Of course as you can see I’ve changed a few of the colors just to put my touch on it.
Second one is the beginning of the anniversary sampler for my DS and DIL. More of that one later.
That is about all I have for this post, I hope it was worth your time and I’ll see you all here again next time until then, thank you for stopping by and I’m off to make some more wonderful little xxs.
