Latest Stitching

I should have posted this on Saturday, but I'm a little behind. Opps! So, March and I stitch on this when we get together every month. I hope to get the roof done next month.

I finally finished part 2 of Autumn Watergarden. I'm all caught up with this one. Now I'll be ready for part 3 which comes out this weekend. I really love the Chatelaines.

Now, what should I work on the rest of this week? Maybe I'll pick up MXI and work on it or Peppermint Twist or may something else! Decisions, decisions.

Little more

CtS. I haven't been stitching every day. I've been distracted. Don't know why, but today I got some more done today. I'm suppose to go to March's this weekend, so hopefully I'll get some heavy duty stitching done then.

Autumn Watergarden - Part 1

I'm trying to do a rotations this year. It is going to go this way:
Week 1 - Chatelaine
Week 2 - HAED Contemplating the System
Week 3 - HAED Fantasies of the Seas
Week 4 - Open - So I can stitch on different things like Peppermint Twist, Oriental Harem Garden, whatever strikes my fancy.
We'll see how that goes LOL. So now I'm ready to go onto CtS. Whoo Hoo!

Another Start!!!!!!!

I started Peppermint Twist yesterday. This is what I had after two hours of stitching. Doesn't look like much does it? I am stitching it on 40 count Lakeside linen with the Week Dye Works threads. I keep starting new things. I also plan on starting Oriental Harem Garden sometime this month. So many projects, so little time.

Superbowl Sunday Stash Sale

My sister, March, and I went to the Scarlet Thread for their Superbowl Sunday sale. I mainly went to get some fabric, but I did buy some patterns too. These are Michele's fault. I've been following her while she stitched all of them. They look great. Check out her blog.

I got this fabric to do BRD Peppermint Twist on. The little pattern is a freebie.

This is the fabric I got to do Chatelaine's Oriental Harem Garden on. Yes, I am going to start another one! It is soft yellow with pink highlights. Sorry the picture isn't better, but it's getting really cloudy out.

And to prove that I have been stitching, I've been working on the last part of MXI filling in the border with the medallions. I have two sides done. Two more to go then the beads and I'm done.

March got beads to finish M Design's Dream. You really need to go to her blog to see it. It is just beautiful. She stitched it with Caron's Confetti.
Well, that's all folks! I need to go fold laundry so I can start stitching.
