Still here after all these years!

 Hi all!  Well, well, I haven’t stitched for a couple of years so I’m now putting some of my great stash and other goodies on ebay under lovetocook50, and on etsy under FraserShop.   I’m just getting started so check it out sooner or later.   Fabrics, kits, charts, supplies!,!   I hope you find something you’d like!  And most of all I wish to say I sure miss stitching but when I see it out there in the world, I smile!  Be well all!

Hi all!

I’ve been missing reading all your blogs.  Hopefully I will get back to stitching soon, but in the meantime I have a few stitchings that I am going to get framed.  I’ll post pics of those within the next month or so because I still have to get them to the framers! :)  Happy Stitching!

Lizzie Kate, Jingles! (sideways)

Completed a couple of days ago -Jingles by Lizzie Kate.  I worked it sideways and will frame in a 9X18" frame.  I also added to the centre bottom some winter buttons I had on hand, along with part of Lizzie Kate's free design called  Cozy Christmas Wishes.  It was a very fun piece to stitch and I love the colours that she used in her designing, especially the teal blue.  Happy Stitching all. :)

Happy October everyone!

Stitching slowly away on Jingles.  Weather says its snow tomorrow.  Seems odd as last week it was 25c for a couple days, but Autumn is a strange weather time here.  Happy Stitching everyone!  :) Oh, a reminder myself to change the blog main picture!  :)

Welcome October and Halloween soon!

Hi all !  I ordered a black 10 x 12 frame and it came today, so I framed up my Halloween Welcome that I finished last year.  It's slightly early for October and Halloween but I'm enjoying it.  Lizzie Kate Halloween from last year is awaiting its frame so soon a pic of that once I receive it. Happy Autumn everyone  and Happy Stitching!  :)

Lizzie Kate - Jingles - sideways

Hi, Here's where I'm at on Lizzie Kate Jingles.   I've had them since they came out, but only started them, I think, last year.  I reset the designs to be a block in horizontal mode to be able to frame it in a conventional sized rectangular frame.    Happy Stitching all! :)

A little stitching, enjoying the summer heat

Hi all!  It's been a lovely warm summer, with a few days of too hot, but that just made relaxing and stitching a bit easier!  Happy stitching everyone!

So long since I've been here!

Happy Spring everyone!  The gardening bug has come to mind and so planning on a few items on my tiny balcony.  My hands are still acting up, so stitching is down to a minimum but I'm still doing a bit on Gracious Era, Jingles, and a couple others.   It not supposed to be a rush anyway! Lol  But trying for at least a slow crawl of stitching! Lol  Happy stitching all! :)

Couldn't resist......

I couldn't resist stitching the lady in the red coat.  I love it with the muff too.  and even without the backstitching in the rufflle its gorgeous too.  I'm really enjoying this one and I also found that there is lots of the background stitching and building are 1/2 stitches with 3 threads which is giving it lots of texture.   I'm also working on some Christmas ornies but cannot show them until my after Christmas blog!  Happy Stitching all.   Oh, and I'm half done the Lizzie Kate Mystery SAL -Spooked which is good because the part 3 is on its way to me.  :)

Wow! August IHSW

Here's where I'm at on Gracious Era design by Alan Maley.  I'm working on it for August IHSW, which is this weekend.  It's amazing how time flies as I thought it was IHSW just a couple of weeks ago for July! lol  Happy stitching all! :)

An old Mystery SAL WIP completed today...

Well, it has been sitting in the WIP pile for a  long time.  Kate from CSRRM group posted the final design again when I asked and I was able to finish this little pretty.  Thanks Kate!  The lighting wasnt great taking the pic, but it looks real nice in person.  The background colour is DMC 3823, a pale yellow.   Happy stitching everyone! :)
