It's been a month---again

For whatever reason I just can't seem to post with any consistency, well maybe the consistency that it is usually only once a month. I would really like to be more current but it takes time and an organized life. I am working on the organize part and it's not going to well for me.

So with that being said I have been stitching quite a bit. Here are the results:

SamSarah--Harried Hare Button Carrot
28 count Dusty Green Fabric with DMC
I really enjoyed stitching and finishing this little carrot. I can't wait to stitched the other two.

Shepherd's Bush 2011 Fob stitched with fabric and threads from kit.
This is a pic of the back of the fob.

And of course this is the front of the fob.
I received this kit for my birthday from Cathy B.
Thanks Cathy. This was a fun and quick stitch.

Blackbird Designs--Basket of Memories
Stitched on 32 count Miracle Mint with
Rainbow Gallery Silk Splendor color # S869.
I had this silk in my stash and thought it went well with the fabric.

La D Da--Yellow Bird
Stitched on 36 count R & R Espresso with
Rainbow Gallery Silk Splendor color # S982.
Another silk I had in my stash.

LHN--Deck the Halls-2011 ornament #3.
Stitched on 36 count coffee dyed linen by me and DMC threads.
Now I just need to get this ornament finished. I am staying on task with
these ornaments so far!

These next four pieces are shop projects I have been doing for The Country Sampler in Spring Green Wisconsin.

With Thy Needle and Thread--Proverbs 31:13
Stitched on 32 count with overdyed threads.

Willow Hill Samplings--Quaker Bluebird
Stitched on 32 count with Sampler Thread--Blackboard.

Notforgotten Farm--Brown Egg Farm
Stitched on 32 count with DMC

NeedleWork Press--Maria Tilley 1835
Stitched on 32 count with Belle Soie and DMC threads.

So there is another update.
Thanks for stopping by and Happy Stitching.
