Art Quilt

I am taking this to the library to play tomorrow. I have decided it needs more layers...(Thanks for the help Cheryl!)
I think the doilies will help, but I need more than these. I will start by attaching them and then seeing what to add next.

I Don't Think This Will be Done for Labor Day

I had hoped to get this finished by now, but I am a slow stitcher.
Here is where you last saw it:
 And here I am now:
I need to dig through my stash and figure out some embellishments. I do like stitching it. I just have so many other distractions!

I See a Sheep!

It has been almost a month since I posted this.
Here is where I left this in July:
 And here I am now:
 Doesn't look like much, but I did some serious frogging on this piece.

WIP Wednesday

I am never going to get this piece done at the rate I am going! But I do like stitching on it so I gave it some love over the past few days. (Those biscornus aren't due until October and Christmas is months away!) I am a giant procrastinator!!
This is the last photo I showed you:
 I did some black and got some fill-in done.

Every little stitch counts!

International Hermit and Stitch Weekend

Well, I managed to get some stitching done this weekend despite dropping my youngest at college and working my guild's webpage.
I taught them blackwork earlier this month and I am trying to get the little squares I stitched made into biscornus.

I dyed the aida myself and think it came out rather nice. Now to get 4 biscornus ready so I can teach in October.
Hope everyone got some stitching time this weekend!

Gifted Gorgeousness for August

I am behind, as usual, but I wanted to show that I have done a little stitching.
Jo over at    Serendipitous stitching    hosts this SAL and it is always fun to see what everyone else is working on that was a gift, is a gift or has the word gift in it!
This is a gift for my husband's aunt who is in her 90's. I am trying to get it done before Christmas. I'm so slow, it will be a race!

People's Choice for August

Jo over at Serendipitous Stitching hosts this SAL where each month we post on a different theme.

This month it is monochrome.I had hoped that I would have been able to start a new piece by today, but no such luck. But I do have a monochromatic project to show you!
Not much progress, but I am trying to work on it a little each week.
Do you like monochromatic projects? I have a few in my stash that are calling my name, but I am trying to resist! Linda do not tempt me!

Stitching the Same Thing Again

I made this biscornu a while back but now I need to make more. Why? Because I am going to teach it to my local embroidery guild.
Here is the one I originally made:
 Here are the linens I dyed for my guild:

I am stitching a few samples on aida that I dyed:
I want to have a few pieces to pass around the meeting. Also, then I can have a few ready for when I show them how to finish the pieces. But I need to hurry as the meeting is in a few weeks!

July Recap

I was able to stitch every day on my Christmas Stocking for the month of July. It is looking good!
Here is where I started at the beginning of July:
 And here I am today:
It has been nice to really concentrate on one project. I am thinking about switching projects this weekend. I want to get a little more done on Reptiles this year.

Melissa always asks a question for the WIPocalypse check-in. This month the question was how do you get out of a stitching slump? I did have a bad slump a few years ago. I stitched a little, but not much. I did other things instead-mixed media art was a favorite. But I have stitched for ages, so it was easy to get back into the swing of things.
Happy stitching!
