Looks Like I Have Some Frogging to Do

I redid a section of buttonhole from my Doodle Drawn Thread Sampler.  The tension was much better.  But now I have rows and rows to redo...But  I won't be happy unless I do

Happy Thanksgiving

I stitched this years ago.  Have a great Thanksgiving!

I should be working on my Drawn Thread Sampler and the Heirloom Stitching Sampler, but this is much more relaxing.  It is fun to add the beads and watch the piece develop.

I have been working on this skirt for my daughter who is in a musical at church.  The top(not shown) still needs some adjustments but will have to wait until after Thanksgiving.  Now to get the room ready for my college boys return!

I am Doing a Little Stitching

 Here is my progress on my Imperial Emeralds Heart.  It is fun to work on and an easy stitch.  I love all the layers.
Here is the photo of what it will look like when I get done:
I have been spending most of my spare time working on a dress for my daughter.  It is for a Christmas musical at my church and the dress is a Victorian style outfit.  I will be so happy when it is done!

Heirloom-Not Much Progress

I have not made much progress on this as I made a mistake and had to reverse stitch.  Better now than when cutting!  I am sooooo close on this one, but it requires more concentration than I can give it right now.  My dd is in a musical at church and needs a Victorian style dress.  Guess who is making it?  Will post a picture of it when I am done.

Imperial Heart-Basketweave Done!

I finally finished the basketweave on this piece and have moved to the fun stuff.  You can't see it in this photo, but the little cross stitches are with a Kreinik braid and add a nice sparkle.

Little Purse

I am still plugging along on this piece.  It is good for carrying around to music lessons, doctor appointments and general sitting and waiting.I don't like the peace sign so will be covering it with black and I did the wrong colors on my heart and flowers so I ran out of thread.  Thanks goodness I have plenty of DMC in the basement!  I need to finish this so I can work on a new Mill Hill bead kit!

WIP-Heirloom Stitching Sampler

I am on the last row of this piece.  It is Hardanger and will take me a while to finish.  I am also debating on how I will finish this piece.  Framed?  Bell pull?  But that is a ways away as I need to go back and put the beads on too.
