B is Almost Done

I am almost finished with this little painted canvas. I think I will use it for a book cover. Will try to post a picture when it is done.

Pam's Crazy Quilt

 I forgot to take a photo before I started working on this block.  It is a lovely block and the ladies have done an excellent job on it.  I am the last person working on it and am currently adding a dragonfly to the upper left corner.
The square needs more flowers and maybe another insect. Or two! I will try to take a photo when I am done.

Santa Is Done!

All I need to do now is send him to the finisher!  He is a little more work to make into an ornament than I like, but he is so cute.

Still Working

I have started one of the large bands on the Doodle Sampler.  Lots of coral knots and then I need to add needle weaving.

Gay Ann Rogers is Back!

In honor of her return I was going to start a new heart.  But then I remembered that I have two of her drawn thread samplers started.  She discusses them on her webpage when she discusses pearl cotton.  Mine is being worked on linen and coton a broder. Both are DMC threads but the stuff I am using is softer.  I wish I had stuck with congress cloth and the pearl cotton on this piece, which is how Gay Ann originally stitched it.  The congress cloth is easier for me to see and I like the definition the pearl cotton gives. Oh well, I am not starting this piece again.

Small Progress on Reptiles

I'm slowly working on this project.  I love working on it, but can only do a little bit every night.  Some nights I miss.  This is going to take years.

Santa's Getting a Hat

I love how this one is turning out, but the hat is giving me a bit of a fit.  I need light and tow needles.

Another Finish

Fun to stitch!  I have Joseph to do, but I pulled the angel to do next.  Love these bead kits!

Reflections on Blogging From A to Z

I enjoyed doing the A to Z Challenge. It showed me that I have way too much stash.  I think I need to do a stash diet or a use it or lose it challenge.  Hmmm.  But it was fun to try to blog every day although I never reply to comments.  There is only so many hours in the day and I need spend a little time stitching...

If I could count, I would not be in this dilemma.  I was moving along on my large Drawn Thread Sampler when I discovered I was off count.  WAY off count!  It is easy to fix.  I just need to rip out the rows above all those squares and redo them. Well, not the very top row as I can fix them.  I have to rip the others out because they are padded stitches.  Will I never learn that I must always COUNT!

It Has Some Beads

This is very close to being done.  I work on it at night so it is just a matter of staying awake enough to get it done.

Doodle Drawn Thread Progress

So while the A to Z Challenge was going on, I did manage to stitch a bit.  I need to decide what I am going to do in some of the sections, but I am making some progress on this piece.
