Hi there ...

Happy Sunday! I hope everyone has had a great weekend. My weekend was filled with yard work with hubby, some MLS (WTG Sounders!), some NASCAR (if they every get the track dry!), lots of Mad Men watching (season 2, episode 6) and a nap! lol

I thought I would give you a very wrinkled look at a couple of my rotation pieces ... first up is Peppermint Twist by BRD. I haven't worked on this lovely for a long time. PT is my Monday rotation piece. I just love this design and the Belle Soie's are wonderful to stitch with. I'm glad to have it back as an active rotation piece ...

Here's my Tuesday rotation ... Autumn Song that I'm SALing with Natasha. Just a couple more leaves and this pretty will be done ...

And here's what I picked to replace Primitive Wizard of Oz that I finished last week ... Wednesday's piece is Earth Laughs by Mdesigns ... fun fun fun stitch ...


I've been stitching on a couple of exchanges that I can't show you yet, but I can show you a quick sweet finish from a couple of weeks ago ... it's a freebie by primitivebettys called Tulip Time. Now I need to finish finish it before all the tulips are gone!

I've also been playing with beads again ... here are two scissor fobs I made ...

and here are a couple of new bracelets ... it's almost as fun to play with all the colors of beads as it is with all the colors/types of floss and fabrics out there ... is it a wonder that stitchers like playing with beads? lol

Well I'm off to do a few things around this house since the race is still on rain delay.

I hope you find your Joy in your stitches ...

I'm grateful for tulips ...

All of your projects are so pretty Michele, and I love your scissor fobs and bracelets too!

I have had a fun weekend - babysitting Gretchen on Friday, fantastic yard sales on Saturday, went to see Alice in Wonderland today, and lots of stitching!

Natasha said...

PT is looking great, I am planing to stitch on Autumn song today and ALL day Tuesday I do not have that much more to do either.

Take Care

Michele your WIPs are gorgeous. I love the M Designs one, such gorgeous, bright colours.

Your rotation is filled with very nice designs, I love them all. As for the beads I think they are awesome. I learned to Peyote bead and it killed my neck and I haven't looked at a bead since lol.

Beautiful WIPs! They are all so lovely.
Fab fobs too. And the bracelets are gorgeous. I enjoy looking at all the beads in my LCS but have yet to take the plunge and buy any :-)

Vonna said...

PT looks so pretty Michele, I think yours is the prettiest I've seen with the Belle Soie :) and I mean that!
All your other WIPS are gorgeous too! And the beads...ahhhh I love them too, and that pretty Fiesta Ware (?) That they are laying on :)

All your pictures are just lovely. I especially like the colors in Peppermint Twist. I think I need to pull mine out now!

Catherine said...

Great projects!!

Deb said...

I love your Peppermint Twist on that fabric. I've seen it stitched before, but on lighter fabric and I think yours does it more justice! Your other WIPS look wonderful.

Love your fobs and bracelets. One thing I still have to learn is beading. One day!

Shelleen said...

Love the fobs and bracelets. I should buy Peppermint Twist but then I would be breaking my rule of no charts for awhile lol.

Siobhan said...

Jeanne said...

Lovely WIP's Michele! PT is on my list to get framed this year so I can display it for the holidays. I have It's Cold Outside kitted up and waiting to be stitched - I love her designs but don't want to stitch too many of that same style even though I like them all!
