Lots and lots to show you today! First off, how about a look at the prize for the Scissors Scamper. There are just a few more days for you to link up your post of your scissor collection! In keeping with the theme, I chose to stitch this adorable little Summer Fab Fob by Lizzie Kate for the winner and I'll include the scissors, too! Of course, my dd looked at it and said... "what if one of your overseas gals wins??". Hmmm. Good point. I guess you'll just have a keepsake from the US with our flag on it! : )
Here's the fob & scissors...
And here's the prize all together. : )
That was a fun project to put together, especially because I hadn't ever made my own cord before!! Yay! I learned something new. Now to try a pinkeep. Hmmm. Maybe next time!
After my trip to Branson and fun at the cross stitch store, I decided that I was going to try working through a rotation of projects again. I need to keep going on my DH's Big Huge Project, but he said it didn't have to be done right away, so I feel better about taking it a little at a time again.
So, right now... at least until I change it in a week or so... here's my list of projects.
Sundays I'm going to work on O Holy Night by Stoney Creek. I found some gorgeous Lugana fabric to use and I love how it is coming along so far. Here's my start...
I wasn't sure if I could use Lugana with all my allergies, but I haven't had any problems yet and I love it!
Monday is Jardin Prive's Douceur de Vivre. This has been in my stash for awhile and I think it is SO pretty. And it has sheep on it! : )
Tuesday is the BHP - Cabin Fever. It was easier last night because I was using the floor stand with it, so I got quite a bit done.
Today I'm working on Eye on the Sparrow by Silver Creek Samplers. You'll see an update of that next week.
Thursday is be CCN's January Cottage...
Friday Old Colonial's Turtle Needlebook that I bought in Branson... (I just have the other side to complete)
And Saturday is Yiota's Dogs Caroling kit. I really hope I allowed enough fabric for this. I have measured 6 or 8 times and I'm going to be really close!
Now... a couple of (very wrinkled) finishes!! : )
Lizzie Kate's ABC Lessons
28 Tea Monaco
Threads from Kit
And DH's first finish...
He wanted to be sure that I showed you his current progress on his WIP, too. He's doing such a good job! It's fun to sit and stitch with him in the evenings!
Thanks so much for dropping by! I've been horrible at commenting lately, but I am keeping up with everyone's posts. We'll see if I ever catch up with myself enough to drop by and say hello! : )
Don't forget the Scissors Scamper!
