We’re Making Progress & Stash Busting

July 12, 2008 at 3:16 pm | Posted in Uncategorized | 1 Comment

Here is a progress pic of my punchneedle so far. I am really enjoying this but boy, does it suck up thread!

And a progress pic of Bless Our House by CCN:

I picked up the mats and frame for Gingerbread Cottage and will probably post a framing tutorial tomorrow or Monday. I ordered a frame for Shepherd’s Bush “Oh Say” and also bought Lizzie Kate’s “Housework won’t kill you but why take a chance”. The colors on this chart are NOT me, so I’ll be changing them out. Probably use a little blue in it since blue is my favorite color.

I decided to delve into the cedar chest where all my cross stitch is stashed and pulled out a couple of pieces that I’d like to do soon:

 

“Wish” and “Home” by Shepherd’s Bush ( I also had the fabbie and the buttons), “Snowy Morn” kit by Shepherd’s Bush and two Santas by Lizzie Kate.  I completed two other LK Santas a while ago and display them every year, so I think it’ll be neat to have a display with four of them.  The forage into the cedar chest was eye opening to say the least.  I have four kitted Chatelaines, tons of Lavendar & Lace angels, Drawn Thead, Indigo Rose, the personalized sampler ordered through Elegant Stitch that incorporates all of the names of the family and is “yo” big,  Just Nan stuff and so much more.  It was almost as good as shopping at the LNS, lol.  I also have threads out the wazoo – Carrie’s, Thread Gatherer, Caron, NPI and two enormous bins full of fabric that are in the hall closet.  Like everyone else that’s addicted to CS, I have enough to last a lifetime.

We’re off to a birthday party tonight – hubby’s lifelong friend AND boss.  He’s turning 60, so is hubby in September and don’t ask – I’m not that old yet, lol.

  1. So nice to see you back posting again! 🙂 And some lovely projects making their debut on your blog 🙂 If it’s OK I’d love to add your framing tutorial on the Focus on Finishing blog when you’ve prepared it.
    Hugs, Anne
