Fly by Post

This is a quick post as I am on vacation in Las Vegas for the next week.

Here is my latest stitching update.



I just love how this little guy turned out! My nutcracker RR is stitched and ready for mailing. I thought a long time about that title and think it will work. Once people start stitching their home states etc then the nutcrackers will truly be "On Tour".

Here is the latest progress on Sampler Des Bouquets. A Happy Dance next week????




While searching for thread, I found this in the bottom of my stash and decided to knock it out. One day and here it is!

JBW Hearts of Joy  from 1997 JCS Ornament Issue

Another finish for my WIPocalypse!

I am very excited this week as I am going to meet up with some online stitching friends - Juls and Margaret and a couple of other (unknown to me) stitchers for lunch and then a visit to Stitcher's Paradise. I wonder what I will have for new stash after that trip?????

And of course, Las Vegas is always interesting! I look forward to sharing my adventures with you next week.

Until then, stay frog free and stitch happy!

Congrats on your finish. Nutcrackers on Tour will look great. Love the little guy. Is it done on aida? Where did you get the nutcracker charts from?

Love your title of your RR, Kathy, and your first little guy is looking very handsome. I'll look forward to watching along as he travels the world and accumulates new buddies :)

I think you've picked a very fitting title for your RR. Your first nutcracker to lead the tour looks great!
I think it's fantastic that you're able to meet up with other stitchers in your winter home. Stash shopping sounds wonderful. I'm a little jealous! Enjoy your day with them and have a super time in Vegas.
Oh no, here comes the snow again!
