Sara Guermani Christmas Window Stash

Tis the season for Christmas stash and this is one I picked up at Myrtle Beach when I was there.  Sara was there with her beautiful Christmas Cross Stitch and I love this one with the wooden button Santa in the middle.  This will be one that I can use on my 20 inch frame.  Don't you just love this fabric?

How to Load the Fabric on the Wooden Treasures Stitching Frame


This is a video showing how to put fabric on the Wooden Treasures stitching frames that my husband Jerry makes.  One of our customers was very happy with her frames and offered to make this video to demonstrate how to load the fabric.  Thank you so much to her for doing this and even I expect to refer back to it myself in loading my fabric.  You did a fantastic job on this!

This is such a beautiful sampler!!!  This is the newest design from By The Bay Needleart that is coming out for 2015.  I just love this one and it will be done on an automatic shipment each month for 12 months through various shops and billed through Paypal.  It is a must have for me and I just had to show it here.  It is very reminiscent of where my husband grew up in the New England area and I look forward to doing this gorgeous sampler.

Pumpkins by Praiseworthy Stitches

Who would ever think that using a fabric this color with this would look so pretty?  This fabric color is called Swamp by Picture This Plus which I don't yet have.  It is on my list to stitch and in my stash pile.

Sturbridge Village

Dark Cloudy and rainy days make for good time to stitch. This is my progress for today. Tomorrow we have severe weather warnings predicted so unless we lose power and I have no light, I hope to get a bit more done this weekend.  I am stitching this on my Ultimate Mini Frame by Wooden Treasures.

Sturbridge Village WIP on my Ultimate Mini Frame

Here is a little more progress on my Sturbridge Village sampler.  I want to thank Barb and Von for their nice comments on this project too.  

I have been stitching a little more on my Sturbridge Village project and finally got this part done. It was a little tricky getting in the fractional stitches and outlining, but so glad it finally worked. I am enjoying the challenge of some new stitches in this one. Thank you all who have liked or made nice comments on my first photo too!

Sturbridge Village Start

It has been really cold so I have been trying to stitch something new for me. This is Sturbridge Village by The Victoria Sampler. It is actually a box top to make but I want it to become a sampler for my wall. This is the main part of it with the scene that will be on it and the other parts of this will be bands above and below it that go with this project. My husband helped me with the graphics so I can stitch this into a sampler. These are specialty stitches and I love the Gloriana threads that are varigated here.
