My friend Kathy stitched this lovely pincushion given to us on our trip to Tulsa by BBD. She was sweet enough to include Kelly's and my initials on the little cushion.
I put the stitched piece together for her and did the crochet for the two pin tops.
Kelly and I are still working on ours. Kelly is ahead of me! Who in this world isn't ahead of me.....hard to tell!! For a while we didn't speak to Kathy because we were so envious of her speed, but we finally gave in! What can I say. she is Princess of Speed Stitching!

Schaeffer Yarn called Blossom. I am so in love with this yarn and unfortunately Jan tells me it has been discontinued! I used the entire skein and knitted the scarf 6 inches wide on 11 needles. Love love love the way it turned out! Will be wearing it with so much pleasure!

DMC Classics Roses Sampler

I purchased this sampler from Lisa at Frenchneedle a few years back. It is a challenge to myself to complete it in 2010. I love the roses but am not enjoying working on 28 count linen. It is too large a count for me but have to use it because I want a large piece. Can't wait to hang it above our bed!

This is a challenge to myself to complete stitching this piece in 2010. I love the roses. the problem is that I am aworking on 28 count linen which is too large a count for me but have to use it because I want a larger picture.
Lisa at Frenchneedle made this sampler available for me. I can't wait to complete it and hang it where it belongs....above our bed!

Paper Dolls

I bought this fabric to make a little throw for Laura then Sharon made a book. At this point I don't know what to do with it. I am not sure Laura will like either idea. I should make something and just keep it here for her to play with when she comes to visit. If I don't hurry, she'll outgrow it! The doll clothes can be put on and removed.

A scarf for someone special

A special scarf for someone special. Have no clue if it will please. Anyway, I tried. The string beside the scarf is how the yarn comes. Two stitches knitted where the string is on #13 needles. Not much fun to knit with yarn like that. If that is all I had, I'd give up knitting!
