You know, when one is sitting around waiting for something to happen, one tends to spend far too much time on the computer.
The end result:
Nutcracker Pattern - SuzLet Creations
The newest Gingher scissors - I love the plaid!
Threads and beads for Chatelaine's Desert Mandala
Vikki Clayton threads - online needlwork sale
I emailed Vikki to thank her for these beautiful threads and to tell her that I was busy fondling them as they were soooo soft. She sent me back an email saying thank you - now stop fondling and stitch with them. LOL
Laura Plantation from Nouveau Encore.
DH and I toured this amazing plantation while in Louisiana and this shop specializes in Louisiana cross stitch. Gayle included several free patterns. She tells me it is called "lagniappe" (LAN-YAP) in Louisiana. What a great way of putting it.
I ordered and received the Crescent Colors so that I can start this beautiful etui.
Nutcrackers in Blue by Imaginating.
oh and a pattern for a Hockey Santa - can't find where I put it - maybe it is with my missing calendar and DH's boating license.
I have stitched some but my stitching urge seems to be on hiatus. I seem to find everything small to do that detracts from my urge to sit and stitch. Hopefully it will be short lived.
Here are my latest finishes:
More squares for my redwork "Postcards from Canada" wall hanging. All the squares are now stitched and the coordinating squares are done. It is almost ready to put together - next post.
Two Friendship Sampler RR's have come through the door, been stitched and sent on their way.
And here is the reason I move to Arizona every winter.
How many ways can you say sunny!
Till next time - keep on stitching and thanks for stopping by.
