More Progress

I have another finish. I was on a roll with the Just Nan little pieces. This is Be Scary and it was a cute stitch. I  have quite an extensive WIP list. I still want to stitch them all and hope to be able to eventually get them all done. Next up to stitch  is a small piece by Lizzie Kate that I have been working on off and off, recently more off than on. I haven't worked on it forever so I decided to set it aside  for my Thursday night stitching. As we move into the dark part of the year here bright and cheerful stitching is in order. I will post an update on it soon.


Dorothy has been sadly neglected but I love her and continue to go back to her as my comfort stitch. I seem to find some project, usually huge, that makes me happy when I am stitching it. Don't get me wrong, I love to stitch and I am always happy to put needle and thread to linen but some just speak louder than others. Dorothy is currently that piece for me. She is a reproduction from Scarlett Letter.


This small finish is a Just Nan piece Irises. I actually found the frame for it and now that my friend has received it I can show a picture on the blog. Of course I could not for the life of me get it to be straight in the frame (straight is a perennial problem for me) so I mailed it to her to frame. Pretty lame but best I could do.  I love Just Nan.


I did however finish this into a needle roll for her. She has a beautiful bread bowl heirloom that she wants to add smalls to so I wanted to help her with filling it. This was the first addition from me. I have several more I want to do but that would involve me actually getting the stitching done of course. 
 This is the August birthday needleroll from Victoria Sampler, another of my favorite designers. I did press it and add the ribbon through the drawn sections but failed to take a picture prior to mailing it out.
This small piece was stitched for my friend's son and his new bride as a quick gift. This was a fun, fun stitch and I changed the color to blue as that is her favorite color. I could not find a frame up here (pickings are slim in Alaska unless you want a custom frame and even then not so many do needlework) His mom was willing to find a frame for it. This is also by Lizzie Kate. Totally quick stitch. Something I need every once in a while since my samplers are always huge and years in the making.
 One last is the framing of the hummingbirds you have seen in the past that I stitched for my sister. We have very different tastes so I sent it to her to be framed (I paid for the framing) but wanted her to choose what she would like. She was pleased with it and I am glad she liked it. She loves hummingbirds and I will eventually do some more for her.

Sorry for the long delay between posts. These are all from summer for summer birthdays. I will post some pictures next of our Fall trips which took up September and October  (which is why you haven't seen any posts from me) I will try to be better about it and thanks for the comments and following along. Hope you find some stitchy time in your day. Marjo

  2. It's great to pull out our older WIPs and fall in love with them all over again. I often wonder why I put something down!
