Santa's Christmas Train

I decided I needed something more festive for my blog photo so I took a picture of the train I made for my son many years ago. I don't know the designer of the canvas nor when I stitched it. I am bad about keeping records of things. That is one reason I started this blog. At least then I have some idea of what I stitched and when.

November is Done!

I think this will need a row of dark blue around it, but I will wait until December 1 to see what Sue Reed plans. All the couching was a pain, but I like the end results.

November Stitch of the Month-Blue

I love how this is coming along. I have lots more to do, but I hope to get finished before December so I can get my daughter's fairy done.

I was so happy that I had made so much progress on my Echoes piece that I ignored the fact that I was one thread off on the right side of the flower. "It will work out" I told myself. Ha! The left side does not fit in so I ended up ripping it all out. Where was my mistake? The very first stitch was over one not two....

Almost Done!

This Promise is almost done. I just need to see what Sue Reed plans for December and I can call this finished. I like it better, but feel like the light color is too light.

I am trying to stitch 12 stitches daily on my Echoes piece. Hopefully I will show some real progress soon. After all, this is just the pocket for needles! I haven't even started on the main part of the case yet!

November Stitch of the Month

Well, I am close to finishing one of my SOTM projects. I think it will need another border to totally finish it and I need to decide what color of beads to use. But I like it more now than when I first started. My Gay Ann Rogers' Echoes of Elizabeth is not going too quickly. My goal to do a little every day did not happen. A little every week maybe....

I started this piece while on vacation. It is a design by Nora Corbett and uses lots of Crescent Colours. I am finished with the R and am working on the dress. Hopefully this will get done so I can have it finished in time for Christmas.
