I had a pretty productive week stitching. This was the first week I've really felt like stitching ... starting to get my energy back.
I'm participating in Carol's Mystery SAL along with a lot of other stitchers. Check out her blog for pictures of everyone's Part 1. Here's my Part 1 ... I'm stitching on 40 ct cream fabric with CC's Manor Red. I love how it looks so far ...
While rummaging through my project bags I found this fun design that was almost done ... don't know why it sat for so long unfinished, only took me 30 minutes to complete ... lol
Merry New Year by The Stitcherhood
stitched on a misc piece of fabric with
Belle Soie's Old Crow
The first time I saw this beauty was on Staci's blog and knew I had to stitch it. Well I'm finally getting around to stitching it and I'm so glad I am ... it's so pretty! It's a freebie and can be found here ... I'm using Victorian Motto Red 24 on a very pretty piece of linen, too bad I can't remember the count or the color!
I've also been working on Home of a Needleworker ... building a blue house is fun!
I treated myself to a bit of new stash ... you knew I had to get these two charts when Amy at Down Sunshine Lane told me about them ... she knows me all to well :)
Here's the rest of my new stash. DH wants me to stitch him Death by Candy Corn and I'll be stitching Baked Goods for my friend Lisa ... we've baked together for 20 years ... I love new stash!
Sending out lots of safe and positive thoughts for everyone in Irene's path. Mother Nature is one tough lady these days.
And lastly, thank you all for your comments about my surgery and my dad's. Last night we had dinner over at my dad's house. It was my first real outing, that wasn't going to a dr appt ... I even put on some makeup! lol ... my brother cooked dinner for us, dad was his sous chef lol ... it was really nice getting out and seeing my family, but more it was nice to actually feel good enough to want to go out *smile*
I hope you find your Joy in your stitches ...
I'm grateful for feeling better ...
