Cross Stitch Happy

Monday, June 30, 2008


I had a successful weekend making 5 pillows, 2 I can't show till they have reached their new homes.

Here we have LHN Berries, Peace and Be Joyful in Hope. The respective fabrics is what was used for their backing. I may do this again in a few days. Seems if I get a few of them lined up I have better success of them getting done.
We had a HOT weekend, a little too hot, but nicer than the cold dreary cloudy skies.

Lovely Day

It has turned out to be a lovely day, the sky is blue, the sun is out and it is very warm with a nice cool breeze. We haven't had too many of these days and it sure is nice.

On to stitching.

On the Hoe Blog I took part of the LHN exchange and Staci sent this wonderful package to me.
She took part of the Thread Gathering and stitched a floss and scissor fobs on her own hand-dyed 22ct hardanger. I've admired this type of finish for a while now, so it really means a lot to me. I just may give it a try one day.

Tomorrow I will share some of my stitching. If I say this I will have to keep my blog up to date right? We'll see....

74 Days Ago

was the last time I posted. I don't know where the time goes. Then I thought spring had arrived, now we are into summer and the weather is lousy. We do get a few nice days, but most are cloudy and cold. On the stitching front, I don't have pictures to show, but have done lots (for me) stitching. I will take pictures in the morning and be sure to post them, maybe not all in one day. Speaking of time, it was a year ago that 4 people signed up for a PIF, 2 no longer have blogs and I don't know how to get in touch with them, for the other 2 I have one stitched and am working on the 2nd. When I have both done I will mail them out, I promise it will be no later than July 15th, 2 weeks late is better than never. Like many other stitchers out there I have heaps of patterns I want to stitch, not to mention all the new patterns that keep coming out. At times I feel so overwhelmed and don't know what to do. How do you handle your ever growing list and decide what to stitch and when ?
