Just Nan Gingerbread Garden Cube completed today!

I completed Just Nan Gingerbread Garden Cube today.  I put the Angel Mouse and the Ginger Holly Man pin on it as well.  I don;t think I'll place the white pins on the edges as I enjoy it without.  Also I added a tiny thread hanger for when the holidays come along!   I'm back to my Tatty Teddy afghan I think or maybe my Dear Santa afghan. hmm?  Happy Stitching everyone!

Where I'm back to on Lizzie Kate 6 Fat Men

Here's where I'm getting back to on 6 Fat Men.  Only a couple designs to complete and then the free design online at Lizzie Kate to add in the empty space!  :))  And I'm gardening again, snow peas have come up, transplanted the green onions outside in raised bed, and put in basil and radish seeds today. So enjoyable to be outside and having fun! :))

Completed Margaret Sherry Bags of Fun!

I completed Bags of Fun today. Whew! It was lots of backstitching, and I bet you may notice I didnt stitch the whiskers.  I actually prefer the design without them.  I hope MS doesn't mind! :))  I'm now debating whether to make into cushion or frame it.  Happy Stitching to everyone!! :)) ps. Now back to Lizzie Kate Big Fat Men!!!

Tiny update!

Winters almost over! Someone reminded me that this weekend we turn the clocks ahead! Oh no! That means I lose an hour of stitch time! Lol. I'm stitching in rotation on 6 Fat Men, nordic Santa, and Gingerbread Garden Cube, as well as I pulled out my Tatty Teddy afghan and did another shade of grey on Teddy Hugs. Can hardly wait to add his blue nose!!  I see so many wonderful stitches done by everyone! Congrats!! Love seeing it all as it's great motivation!  :)) ps, pics to update next time!

I started stitching the Gingerbread Cube just after Christmas and here's a pic!  Also included in the pic, two tea towels I received along with everything else in this pic from my best friend and her granddaughter!! What wonderful surprises! And if you knew me at all, like she does,  then you would really know that the great towel she stitched for me shows the truth!  I'd rather stitch for the whole day than take 15 minutes out of my stitch time to do the dishes!!  absolutely so funny!!!  As you can see the little Angel Mouse is sitting there waiting for me to finish stitching her cube to sit upon!  Also from another close friend, I received a fantastic gift, as I also love to bake - a Le Creuset batter bowel, a fantastic sifter, which I used because it was so easy too for my hand as it has the handle to turn on the side of it to sift,  and it sure made the zucchinni bread much lighter) and a whisk desperately needed as my other one fell apart in the summer.  She also gifted me this cool tool of a silicone hot plate/hot gripper, which is very very handy!!  Happy New Year everyone!! ps: I forgot to also say my best friend also loveingly stitched me a Mill Hill Polar Bear with wreath which I had on my Christmas tree this year but as I've packed it all away, I'll have to show you next year! It''s very adorable!!
