I'm still here!

So lets see what's new. I finished Plum Street Sampler I before Thanksgiving and had planned to finish version II but the black fabric was getting to me so I had to set it aside for a while so here they are as of today.

To relieve my eyes from the black I picked up my Rose Sampler to give it a little attention and it went from
to here
and this was after I found a mistake and had to frog the border back to where it is on the left side.
I got a little frustrated with the frogging so I stitched this little muffin top from the Just Cross Stitch 2013 Special Christmas Issue.

Now I just have to take the time to finish it in my cupcake cup.
I picked up a couple of charts at last night's stitch night
This is as far as I have gotten on the "Sweet Shop" in the LHN Hometown Holiday series
but at least I have all of the current charts and can get caught up before any news ones come out next year. Last I just want to share some other stash enhancements.
As I've stitched I've listened to "Bone to Ashes" and "Devil Bones" by Kathy Reichs, I have one more to go "Cross Bones" before I have to make another library run.  Thank you all for stopping by and please make sure you have an email so I can reply to your comments. I try to reply to everyone.  So away I go to make some more wonderful little xxs.

Your stitching looks beautiful. Sorry the frog visited your one piece. It's beautiful anyway. Love that stitching on black. It really pops.

Goodness you have been busy. Everything looks great, keep up the good work. Send your Frogs this way and I will put them out in the new AC unit, its chewing up the real thing like crazy so maybe it will work on our stitching ones.

Hi, Minnie! Just stopping by to say hello and look at your gorgeous work -- I have to say it has made me want to get busy with my current project and get started on a new one! Love the red/white sampler.

I love both your Mary samplers, but my favourite would be the one on the black fabric. The black fabric makes the thread colours stand out beautifully.
Your rose sampler is really gorgeous. And what a lovely little cupcake you made. These gingerman buttons are darling.
Great new stash!

Brigitte said...

... I meant gingerbreadman ...

Great stitching progress, the cupcake is going to be so cute! I'm not sure if I am brave enough to try that one...

I love the turtle chart you got too! x

Lindos tus bordados. Yo bordé muchos años, pero por motivos de salud, ya no lo hago. Pero me encanta.

It's so fun to have more than one project on the go at a time, so you can jump around! Your Mary's Samplers look wonderful. I haven't finished the border on mine yet.
