Anyway...more progress was made on the BBD Merry Christmas Ella Vaughn modified to "Winter Wonderland Sherry H". I think I actually only filled in a leaf and put in one strand of the snow color since last time. But progress is progress! This will be finish-finished into a pillow to put on a bench I switch up seasonally.
I did make much more significant progress on the Christmas pocket. I was way thrilled and doing a happy, happy dance when the borders matched up. I have just a little bit left to do under the "O Christmas Tree" part. There is another little cover for the needle book which is located inside the Christmas Pocket.
While I am off work, I plan on getting this finished stitched and attempt to finish-finish it. I have read the directions and hope it is easy.
Next I did a little tree climbing. I have finished almost all the leaves on the tree.
This is the Mystery Sampler by With Thy Needle & Thread. I love the little strawberries and have to fill in the grass now. This is a great thing, just like the snow, to work on when watching a movie or when visiting with my friends. I will be doing both this weekend and the beginning of next week. Maybe both snow and grass will be done and all filled in soon!
Did a bit of collecting things for my stash the last couple of weeks. These are things I had purchased, but not photographed yet. This first one is a sampler by Shakespeare's Peddler Elizabeth Mary Gandey. I loved the church on this and can't wait to get started. Picture should be clickable and I will post progress, whether slow or fast, so you can see the church and the soft, delicious colors come to life on this one!
No color picture of Petites Lettres Rouges, but it's a BBD design. It's done with three shades of red....on a light linen.
Doing Santa's Night by Prairie Schooler on black linen with overdyed instead of the called for dmc fibers. I love the finished look, but black is hard to stitch on and I have to be in the right light - mind and with my eyes. LOL!!
I worked on a Turning Twenty pattern - called Twisted Turning Twenty with beautiful batiks. It called for lights and darks with one stripe being the lights, the other the darks, kind of zig-zagging across the quilt. I did bright colors and purples. This is for my niece - she loves purple.
This was for her Christmas present - Christmas 2010. Audrey knew it would be late as I had it cut out and some pieced before Christmas, but not completely done. Then I got sick, then I had surgery, then I had rehab...then I got sewing! I finished it last weekend and got the backing prepared, the batting bought. Dropped it off to be quilted today, shouldn't be too long and I can bind it off and get it to her.
