If these next 3 posts seem a bit disjointed it’s because I’m having a terrible time with blogger. When I try to post, using Windows Live Writer, it doesn’t like the amount of pictures I’m posting and just crashes during the upload. Also, the blogs on my sidebar aren't updating automatically like they used to and I can't add or delete blogs on my sidebar. Can you hear me grumbling? If you’ve had the same issues and have managed to fix them, PLEASE let me know.
Okay….on the with rest of the show.
I love my hand stitching at night and worked on getting this Valentine goody finished in time for February.
It’s from Primitive Stitches. I just love her patterns.
My friend, Patty, got the frame for me when she visited Primitive Gatherings last summer. I’ve been rotating the stitchery designs in the frame. Next up will be this one which I just finished.
My buddy, Karen, at My Red Farmhouse has a selling blog, The Primitive Thread where she offers darling projects a couple times a month. (She’s just scaling back a bit and I think she’s decided to post them on the first and third Wednesday of the month). Make sure you check them out because they are cute and do-able. And VERY reasonably priced.
Anyway, when she posted this next project, I realized I had the pattern already and I certainly have the cottons and wool (get it? Cottons n Wool? Hehe) to make my own. So, thanks Karen for the motivation.
The pattern is from Lori Smith as part of her Quilted Pictures designs.
Right now I’m working on the “Autumn Quilt” from Heart to Hand. I just need to applique some wool on the borders and this baby will be finally finished!
And finally….when I was in full force organizing mode, I came across a cross-stitch project that I had started quite a few years ago. It was more than 1/2 finished, so I decided it needed to be completed.
It’s called “Button up your Overcoat” by 4 my Boys designs. Not sure if it’s still in print. (that’s how long ago I started this puppy)! All it needs is a frame and voila…another completion!
I’ve got one more project in the works but you’re gonna have to wait to see it till I’m finished with all the applique.
