Let’s just get right to it.
Hooked on Exchanging Winter House Exchange:
Love this, Little House Needleworks on a book/box. Brilliant! Janet really paid attention to detail & it shows in a wonderful finish.
I stitched two of Bent Creek’s houses from their Winter Snapperville & added the town names for Nic & myself. I finished them into a double sided flat fold. The fabric is Spun Sugar opal from Sassy Fabrics and I stitched them with my choice of Weeks, GAST & Crescent Colors. This was my first attempt at using Judy Odell’s method of finishing off the twisted cording. I’m not 100% happy with it, and while with practice I imagine I’ll improve – I’m probably being too picky.
I stitched Holly. 😀 All the empty space off to the left of Sophia’s RR is gridded for more Pixies. She plans on stitching them when her RR returns home to her. It just happened that the group gravitated to the right side. This is another one I wish you could see in person, the colors… it just works, you can barely take your eyes from it.
Yesterday at the Houston GTG (hi ladies!!!!!!!!!!) between bouts of me gossiping and good food and great company I stitched a little bit more of poor neglected Bluebell’s wings.
But mostly I did this:
Jo’s office/store room is… well it means trouble for me. lol Another silk Oops Pack (see that red pearl on the left, Cherylann gave me that – granted it was after I squealed shiny & fondled it *snort* thank you again Cherylann!) a pair of tiny little floral print scissors, Cats Whiskers’ Scissors by any other name & the new! Shopping Tote. Could not leave without any of it.
Maybe I’ll stitch this week, I’ve got the Chatelaine Smalls Exchange coming up, Annette’s Mira RR to finish (last one!) and Bluebell is calling my name. But reality is I need to finish cleaning my master bedroom/bathroom, dust my son’s room, and I shudder when I think about how much yard work I need to do. And I still have to go grocery shopping today. I was going to stitch this morning, but I blogged instead. I hope you all appreciate my sacrifice. 😉
