Getting Old

I stitched and finished this Lizzie Kate design for my friend Nancy's birthday.  We go back many many years.  She has moved away and I miss her very very much.

Pincushion slipper and more

My friend Sandy stitched these beautiful pieces.  I put them together for her.  The slipper certainly was a challenge!  I hope she likes the end product as much as I do!  Love that slipper!!

Merry Cox

My friend Jackie stitched these Merry Cox pieces.  I put them together for her.  I hope she likes the end product!

Knitted Acorn

My first experiment in knitting an acorn.  I am sure more will follow.

On Christmas Day 2011 I decided to start stitching the Nativity that was published many years ego by Leisure Arts. There are many pieces. I refuse to count them in fear of being discouraged!! This is supposed to be a SAL with the Kansas Stitchers Group. Once completed, if ever in my lifetime, I was going to give it away as a gift. I have now decided, since I love it so much, to keep it for ourselves for a while. I am stitching with DMC fibers on Flax 36 count linen. It is a lot of work because there are so many color changes, but I am really attached to this piece of work. Interesting to see when it will be completed! I am in no rush. My friend Linda's daughter stitched them all for her. I told Linda to go home and give Rebecca many hugs for stitching this monumental project for her!

St. Pat Mitten

My friend Kathy stitched this darling little mitten on 32 count linen. Much smaller than the pattern calls for. We have been stitching all these mittens on smaller count linen because they are so much cuter......We think so anyway! I did the finishing for her. I just love it!
