Eleanor Parr- The Scarlet Letter


I finally found time to work on Eleanor Parr.  It has been so long since I stitched on the birds so I decided to stitch this red bird on the left side even though I need to stitch some leaves.  The leaves will be next in this group on the left and should fill in nicely.  I have also been working on my Serenity Harbor project.  I have also been busy studying for my Technician's license in Ham Radio to take the test next week.   Always something to do here.   Tomorrow is Jerry's and my 17 year wedding anniversary.    We have had a lot of rain here so I am hoping for sunshine tomorrow.  Hope you are all enjoying your stitching.     To Laura, thank you for the nice email and I am so glad you got your frame and stand, and hope you are enjoying them as well. :)    Barbara, thank you for your comments here.  I look forward to seeing them.

Strawberry Fields Forever WIP

Here is another work in progress. This one is Strawberry Fields Forever by Blackbird Designs. I am stitching this one on 40 ct Parchment color Linen. I only have this right side to do on the border. The bottom has other things. I love doing the strawberries though and there are more in the sampler too.  This frame is the new 8 inch Micro. I am loving it!

Serenity Harbor - Block 4 Finish

Doing a happy dance today as I have finally gotten Block 4 finished and am anxious to see Block 5. No the water is not stitched crooked, just this fabric has a mind of it's own today. It is not Lakeside Linens like I usually use as I got it as a gift and it is really nice but a little more inclined to stretch. I love stitching this water. We have had lots of rain this past week and the bright colors make a dreary day seem better. Looking forward to stitching more on block 5.

Serenity Harbor- Getting Close to Finishing Block 4

I am getting close to finishing up Block 4 of Serenity Harbor.  With all of the wild weather we have had, it has given me some much needed stitching time.   I should have this block finished in a day or two.  Thank you to all who have come in and commented here.   I need to work on Eleanor Parr soon and add a few more leaves and birds too.  We will also be getting block 5 and this time I am going to be ready to start on it too.

Serenity Harbor Block 3 Finish

I finally have finished Block 3 and now on to block 4 .   This sampler is really a good stitch and I am doing this one in between 4 other samplers.  All of my frames are filled up with samplers and they all hang up to inspire me to stitch.  Thank you to everyone who has contacted me with nice comments  and I enjoy hearing from you all.   Even our hens seem to want to get involved here.  :) Serenity Harbor is stitched on 40ct Weeks Dyeworks Parchment linen with 1 thread over 2.

Good Times


Fabric for Ann Short is Here

The fabric for Ann Short arrived today. I had wanted to get my favorite 40ct Sand Dune, but it was out of stock in most places so I decided on a half  yard of 40 ct. Vintage Pecan Butter from Lakeside Linens.   I am very happy with the color and feel it will give me the look I want for Ann Short. This will be my first time using this color.  Now I am anxiously waiting for Ann Short to be in my mailbox which I am sure it will be soon.  I have several samplers I am working on until then.  Thank you Barb for your nice comments. :)
