cross stitch

i've been doing a lot of cross stitching... so i'll show a few that i've recently finished and some in progress..

this Merry Christmas picture was so so much fun to do.. it's bright and colourful .. the pattern and it's picture do not do it justice... it's just yummy all stitched up.. and i can't wait to see how cathie frames it up... this picture will be entered in the osceola county fair next month..

i've also found that i love quaker inspired pictures... this croaksworth was quick and easy to do.. i'm going to do quacksworth as a complimenting piece..

i'm currently working on Murky Manor .. by Glendon Place.. i love her patterns.. i also have Pretty pumpkins by her in progress too.. and plans to start Sleepy Hollow in the fall.. i'm doing Murky Manor as a stitch-a-long with my friend Patti in Kentucky.. this is the 3rd or 4th thing we've stitched together.. we've also done.. Monster March (also a glendon place pattern)... Rosy Radient star (linda myers pattern) and.. Deck the halls.. (just nan pattern).. altho.. my deck the halls isn't quite finished.. it will be soon tho...

i have 2 more that i'll be starting soon.. both will be very large pieces.. one will be.. Ink Circles.. Cirque des Carrreaux... and the other will be.. by gone stitches.. a quaker Christmas.. but trust me... the colours and fabrics i've picked... look nothing like the pictures... i just LOVE to shake things up a bit.. now i just have to wait for the fabrics and threads i've ordered to come in..
will (again).. try to do better about posting..


quilted finishes for christmas 2009

ok.. so i suck at keeping this current.. sorry about that.. i have all good intentions too.. but life seems to get in the way..

so.. lets see.. what's been going on the last few months... hmmm... sadly.. we lost our furbaby just before christmas .. she'd been a family member for 14 1/2 years... and we all miss her terribly...

i did manage to get a few things done for christmas.. i've already shown my son's quilt and my sisters.. but i also managed to get one done for my daughter..

this is the mini i did for trish for her christmas mini... i LOVE pineapple quilts and i loved how this one came out.. i plan on making myself one... one of these days... lol..

and this mini i made for my quilter... she is such an amazing lady.. and always manages to squeeze me in if i need to get something quilted in a hurry...

i'm sure there are others that i'll find later to post.. next post will be about some of the cross stitch i've finished and some wip's i'm working on..
