I recently sent Lizzy the La D Da Rose freebie chart that I had got in an order from JJ's as she liked it and wanted to stitch it. I decided that I wanted to send her a little gift along with it and now that she has received it and I know she loves it I can show what I stitched.
The Prairie Schooler A Friend
28 count Polstitches Love & Kisses
Finished as a pillow/ pinkeep with a beaded edge for Lizzy.
I loved stitching this up and am pleased with the way it turned out. I love the effect of the beaded edge:)
Last night I did my second night on Bygone Stitches A Quaker Christmas and almost finished the motif I was stitching on. This is just so nice to stitch on and I will really miss it when I've finished it. I am so pleased with the progress I am making. As you can see I have changed the word Noel for Love so have had a bit of a swap round with the letters!
There is so much I want to get stitched before Christmas and now that my JCS ornament magazine has arrived I have the urge to stitch some ornaments. I need to get the Bent Creek stocking finished and I would like to stitch mine up too but time is going so fast and Christmas will be on us before we know it! I mean where has October gone??? I am thinking about joining a Christmas ornament exchange but am just not sure what to do. I have enjoyed the few exchanges I've been in this year but feel a little snowed under with stuff I want to stitch for myself plus I would have liked to get at least PIF out before the end of the year!
I still need to get my MM&I piece finalised but keep looking at what I have done so far and thinking I could do better! I've just printed some graph paper out and will have another play around. I need to get my fabby ordered soon as I know it's dyed to order so takes a couple of weeks and I don't want to leave it too much longer or it might not arrive in time. I am still unsure which colour to choose but it'll either be Snow Storm ( which is now Sudden Storm on the new site) or Dusk.
It's getting near to lunchtime and Jess has just risen from her
