My Land - Shepherd Bush

Wow, I forgot to let you see the finish project from the class I took back in March with Shepherd's Bush. This is called "My Land" and it will be available for sale shortly. So hang tight, it is a fun one to stitch.

Sorry this is so dark, I need to stop taking pictures so late at night.

Finish Line Reached

It has happened. A project has been completed. Here it is.....

I promise to take a better picture when it has been framed and it is not late at night. I wanted to at least let everyone know that I have finally finished it. Wow, this took me a bit longer than expected. We will see how fast I get the next project done. Oh, that is Little House Needleworks "Sunflower Inn". I love sunflowers and this one is right up my alley. Here are a few sunflower shots that I got over the weekend.

Isn't this neat. I have never had the chance to find one that was just getting ready to open up. I wish I could be around for the opening but I took these pictures over the weekend up in Ohio during a wonderful time spent with family during a reunion. These flowers are so amazing. The leaves are so large and green. I guess one of these summers I will have to try to grow one in my yard so I can enjoy the process.

Well, enjoy your week and good luck on your projects.

Almost there!!!!

Well, since the last time I blogged I was..... working on Lizzie Kate ABC Lessons with the vision of being done quickly. Okay, Well, What can I SAY....

Wow, this has taken me a lot longer than I expected. Course, when you put it down more than you work on it could be the major cause. Here is my progress as of late tonight.

As you can see I am on the last line and the second to the last word. Okay, this won't get done tonight but I sure hope it is this week. The bug has bitten me to start a new project and I cannot wait. I think I will be good and find an old project that is sitting in a stitching bag that also is down to the last line and finish it. Isn't it better to take two projects in for framing instead of one?

I made a special trip out the LNS on Saturday so I could pickup the latest Loose Feathers design by Blackbird Designs. What a treat. I just love the pattern, material, and threads.

Course, there was also another new pattern called "Summer Iris" that I had to pickup to go along with my latest collection of Blackbird designs.

I have also been working on Prairie Schooler limited edition Santas for the last several years. The latest 2009 Santa has come out and I had to also add that to my stash. Looks like I will be very busy trying to get these done and still trying make a huge dent in my stash. If the weather continues to be so hot outside I think I will be inside enjoying the cool air and stitching more.

Well, stitching, blogging and TV time is over. Time to pick up a good book and work myself into a peaceful night of sleep.

Happy Monday Stitchers......
