Wipocalypse Post February, Giveaway, 2012 RR biscornu and Stash

Here I am with a much delayed WIPocalypse post. When I went to write this post, I didn't think I had stitched very much. I was quite surprised to find I had accomplished quite a bit.

I stitched

ABCD pillow

UFO RR tiger

Mirabilia RR for Cat

LHN Summer Splendor

Point Loma Lighthouse

Summer Splendor and Point Loma Lighthouse are on my WIP list so I have one finish and one in progress. Not so bad after all.

I have a wonderful giveaway to post.
Dear Lynn stitches the most beautiful, amazing stitches and then finishes them impeccably. I have been trying for a number of years to win one of her awesome giveaways and it finally happened.
I won this gorgeous, dainty, beaded, tiny Valentine pillow.

And because Lynn did not want the pillow to be lonesome she sent along this stunning teapot necklace and gorgeous hand-embroidered felt heart.

Thank you so very much Lynn. These will be very treasured pieces.

For the next round of the 2012 RR I have been asked to stitch a biscornu.
I picked this freebie of maple leaves and stitched it with a beautiful Sparklies variagated thread that reminded me of autumn colors. I wanted it to be a representation of my Canadian roots.

You will notice my signature block says "Canari" - a Canadian who winters in Arizona - lol. The owner will finish them into the little pillows when they are returned to her.

And wandering around a couple of boards on facebook I ran across this little goodie. Could I turn it down? No way!!!

We are having the best time with our children and grandchildren. I will post some photos at a later date.

I hope your stitching has been frog free and full of happy smiles. Until next time.....

Ginny said...

You have been a busy stitcher. Everything looks beautiful. Can't wait to get my hands on Cat's RR and see it in person. Looks so beautiful. I just finished the Winter Maiden on your piece a few days ago. Have to get a picture and post on the site so you can see it. She turned out beautiful and I loved working on your fabric.
Oh, love that bag you found. So perfect for you. Have fun with your grandchildren.
