Hardanger Lessons

Thanks to Dawn at Golden Angel Works I'm learning Hardanger, It's a little labor intensive (for those like me who hate to constantly count!) but the results are well worth the effort! I will be sweating a little when I have to cut the fabric however! Thank you Dawn for helping me learn Hardanger!! :)

New little Finishes

Finished stitching a couple of Christmas Ornies! I was flat on my back for almost a week, and boy I really felt guilty not getting my daily stitching in! Luckily my back is on the mend for the most part, and I'm able to get back on schedule!!

Some Moldy Oldies

~I took these out of mothballs about a month ago, still havent done anything with them, think I might frame the Apples for my sister in law, she has an apple theme in her kitchen, the sampler was one I made when I was having DS #2, and Home Sweet Home, I made the year I got married, the frame literally fell apart in our last move, and it no longer goes with the decor, I will probably put it back in the hope chest and look at it from time to time~

My First Biscornu

Ive been reluctant to try one of these little guys, but it went together pretty easily, I think next time, I will sew it together in better lighting, as I made a couple of goofs.....oh well not too bad for a first time out I guess. Its a freebie design by Juggy Bug Designs, called "Be Aware", its going in the donation box for our Relay for Life in Palm Bay...still waiting to hear the final decision on the Theme, I hope hope hope they chose Crafting for a Cure!!

A new Start..or at least one of a few new ones ;)

I just kitted up Shepherd's Bush "On the Haunt". I just love all their designs, I need to acquire the buttons that go with this pattern, but first things first!! I'm making actually two versions, one in all blackwork and one per the chart, will post progress later....
Happy Stitching!!

Mother's Love Needleroll

Saw this darling needleroll on Cross Stitch Happy's blog, and knew I had to make it! (Even though I made a few oops, I like the way it turned out!) :)
One I wanted to try a needleroll and two, wanted to make something to honor my mom, she has been gone for five years and I miss her very much, She taught me how to sew and stitch...she'd be in her glory to see all projects I've completed, and she'd love to look at the pictures on other stitcher's blogs

A couple of Finishes.....Floss Tag

This little Tea for 2 has been shuffled from one bag to another for so long Im not sure where I obtained it from, finally I thought, would make a cute floss voila...
