Christmas stitching!

Time passes very quickly when stitching, but I must say I'm happy that I completed 12 quick Christmas stitchings which I'll show you after the holidays.  I'm working again on Mill Hill Snow Day over two on 28 count fabric.  To make the snow stand out a bit, as the fabric is off white, I'm using 5200DMC which is a bit whiter I think.  I think with the red frame it should pop!  Happy Stitching everyone! :)

Nordic Santa, Lucie Heaton Design

I completed this Nordic Santa, which is one of the four Nordic Santas designed by Lucie Heaton, this evening, although I had started it last year sometime.  I used seed beads for the snow, which does give it a bit of depth in person.  And I couldn't believe this evening, on tv, there was the first of probably many Christmas shows!!!!!  :) Oh, and we had some snow today, big fluffy flakes, but then it all melted a couple of hours later.  :)

Spooky Welcome - Stoney Creek design Completed!

Happy Halloween everyone!  Thanks to the last posts for your wonderful comments, as this also motivated me to stitch a little longer just to get this done!  I completed Spooky Welcome at 11:01 pm this evening! Yay!

I enjoyed stitching this cute design, and also making the two little bats out of fimo clay.  Halloween for me, was always a very fun and enjoyable time, spent with my siblings, and neighbours. I have great memories which I will always treasure!  :)

Spooky Welcome, a week to go

Just a quick update on my Spooky Welcome.  It's got a ways to go so I;m not sure if it's going to be ready for 2015 Halloween.  :)  I also don;t have much DMC 310 left, and I have ordered more, but it could take a couple of weeks to get here.  It's okay though, as I don't want to rush through it.  It is fun to stitch on the koolaid dyed fabric.  Happy Halloween everyone, early!   :)

Autumn is here!

 I spent the last few days picking out the final carrots and green onions from the garden. i love to wash those green onions, dry them off well, chop them up and freeze, then place in a pop bottle so they can be shaken out all winter into yummy foods! :)    Also, the building is almost complete with new windows in, and blinds up so i can finally reorganize stitching and crafts.  i haven't done much over the summer as there was no where to sit and stitch properly.  lol  finding my stitching would also have been interesting!   I've started on a Winter gift so enjoying that.  How about you?  I stitch Christmas and Winter all year, and oh yes, i think i have Spooky Welcome to still complete!   I spent time reading blogs and looks like lots of you are very busy!  Happy Stitching all!

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!

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!!!
