Almost done with the Green

I have been working on this in the evenings, right before bed.  It is easy right now and I like seeing the design starting to take shape.  Also, I am only using one stand of thread which makes it super easy.  Next will be stitching using two stands so I will need to lay the threads.

Take a Stitch Tuesday on Wednesday

I added these French knots, but I think it needs more.  But I keep looking at the "pink tulips" that are next to that row and feel they need some help too.  Thank goodness Sharon B at Pintangle has a lot of stitches to share.

Because I am Crazy

I joined a crazy quilt block swap.  We are swapping one block, but I decided I needed four so that I could make them into a quilt.  Not that I have ever made a crazy quilt, but at least I have the blocks made.

Stitch from Stash October

Earned:$8(Christmas Light Santa)+$2(Purple Pumpkin Eater)

Here are my finishes for the month:

Christmas Light Santa was finished earlier this month. I just finished Purple Pumpkin Eater last night.  I forgot he was almost done and just needed his beads.  He is perfect for Halloween.  I need to get a move on my Heirloom Sampler as I will need the $$$$ to pay for the stash that is coming in November.  Will post my naughtiness when I get it(and take it off my November totals).  I am waiting til then because I don't pay for it until November....

Purple Pumpkin Eater with Some Beads

A member of my local EGA gave a presentation on perforated paper which reminded me that this was in my stash, waiting for beads.  I have been working on him and hope to have it done before the end of the month.

I am so close!  I worked on this with some friends this afternoon.  I think I inspired someone to restart hers!

New Project

I started on my Imperial Emeralds Heart that I got from Gay Ann Rogers.  It is an easy stitch, at least so far.  I needed a little project to work on in the evenings when I don't feel like working on my big projects.  I should work on my little Stitch N Zip, but I needed somethinnew.

Heirloom Sampler Fix

I finished my people band and went back and fixed the row above.  I like it better and think I can move on to the next row.

Santa's got Lights!

I found the little lights at Hobby Lobby and think they are perfect.  Will he be finished before Christmas?  If I can find a clear spot in my craft room. Wish I had more electronic ability.  Wouldn't it be fun if the lights lit up?

WIP Wednesday-Heirloom Sampler

Sorry this is such a bad picture,but I wanted to post something!  I am close to finishing this row of people and they are close to the bottom of the piece.  I think I need to remove the bands above them though.  The maroon is not working for me.  I need to look through my stash and see what I have.  I need an ecru ribbon or piece of lace.....

Santa Needs Some Help

Someone mentioned that the little lights included in the kit were too big.  I agree so a trip to Hobby Lobby is in my future.  At least my dd wants them to make into earrings.

So Close to Being Done....

I just need to add beads to the red hat and Christmas lights on the band and he will be done!  Love these little projects.
