I was hoping to

have all these stitched pieces finished before I posted, but it has been almost a month since my last post and I have done quite a few so here we go:

Mary Garry--When I was young and in my prime. Stitched on 32 count coffee/tea dyed fabric.
I used Belle Soie Poison Apple and Herb Garden. I started this one on 1-24-11 and finished on 1-29-11.

Then while I was down in TN and GA to visit with our grandchildren I stitched this LHN.
Sarah Street--Faithfulness. I stitched this on 32 cream with the fibers it called for.
Started on 1-30-11 and Finished on 2-7-11.

I had gone to my LNS with a friend on the 9th and February and had to pick up this Prairie Schooler book--Folk Eggs. I wasn't real excited to stitch this on 18 count black aida but I couldn't find 36 count black. So I went with the 18 count and used DMC threads.
Started on 2-10-11 and finished on 2-11-11. Can't wait to get this one finished.

In trying to keep with stitching a Christmas ornament between other projects I stitched up this Red Noel from the November 2008 Gift of Stitching Magazine. It was stitched on an unknown 32 count with DMC 115.

I started this La D Da piece last fall and decided to get it finished. The design is called Lauren's Voice. I stitched it on 36 count R & R Lt. Expresso with DMC. I made color changes to this design.

I am not a Halloween person but these Lizzie Kate--Halloween Rules intrigued me. I did not want to stitch them all on one piece so I am going to stitched them and then make pin keeps out of them and put them in a basket. I stitched these on a 28 count dyed fabric with DMC threads.

I received my Just Cross Stitch Magazine last Monday and decided I just had to stitch this Country Cottage Needleworks design called G is for Girl. I stitched it on 32 count Lambswool with DMC and changed out Crescent Colors Poblano Pepper for DMC 92. I can't wait to stitch up the "B is for Boy" design.

Well as you can see I have some serious finishing to get to. I was hoping to do that today with a couple of my stitching friends but the weather did not cooperate. We ended up with 14 inches of snow and traveling was not very good today.
