Last Night's Stitching (Fri 3/16)

LHN's Little House ABC Samplers (XYZ).
I am enjoying finishing this one.  I'm going to hang it somewhere near my stitching chair so I can look at it frequently.  :)

This is what DH and I watched yesterday afternoon.  A hungry fox who lives in a dead fallen tree trunk up the hill from us kept coming back to finish off the dog food our dogs left.  He was beautiful to watch and kept coming back until he finished the leftovers.  I took the picture through our screen door.  (No it's not warm enough.  The storm window was down too.)

Have a good weekend y'all.

Farmhouse Christmas Update

I forgot where I was in my rotation so last night I picked up Farmhouse Christmas.  This is where I am from the last time.  I did this all last night.

Space of time is because DH needed me to wait on him.  Having trouble breathing because of pneumonia.  I am hopeful that he is improving though.

Wish you could see the accurate colors on this.  I love Classic Colorworks Cherry Cobbler.  It's beautiful!  :)

Until next time,

XYZ update

My update from last night.  Little House Needleworks ABC House Samplers (XYZ).  I stitched some white in the lower right grass and some light brown and dark brown on the woman and the house.  Again, didn't get much done because DH isn't well.  Went to doctor's this morning and he had a CT scan and some other tests done.  We shall see what he says. 

Tonight, if I can (I'm tired and DH needs someone to go-fer for him) I will work on Farmhouse Christmas.

Take care y'all.

Farmhouse Christmas farm

Well, finally, true to my word.  I started Farmhouse Christmas by Little House Needleworks last night.  I must admit I only stitched a couple of hours.  I was very tired because DH hasn't been feeling well and I am his go-fer.  I really don't mind.  I feel so sorry for him.  I am not going to use the tiny snow flakes around each chart.  Instead I am going to use them around the entire 9 series for the border. 

Well, tonight back to XYZ.  Back and forth... and so on and so on and so on.  ;0)

Have a great day y'all.

XYZ Update

This is 2 nights of stitching on Little House Needlework's ABC Samplers XYZ.  Bottom 2 rows were done before I got sick.  The rest was stitched last night.  There is only 1/2 a row to go to finish the grassy area.

Tonight I will start Little House Needlework's Farmhouse Christmas and switch back and forth until XYZ is done and then concentrate on Farmhouse Christmas.

Hope y'all have a great Wednesday.  :)

Finished LHN's UVW

I finished stitching UVW from LHN's "ABC Samplers".

Now it's on to XYZ and the complete finish of this piece.  I really like it.

I am also looking forward to going on to stitch "Farmhouse Christmas" all in one as this one is.

IHSW Update

I am late in posting and I didn't accomplish as much as I wanted.  It is a common symptom of old age.  The spirit is willing, but the flesh is weak.  Here is my updated picture of Little House Needleworks 'ABC Sampler Houses UVW':

IHSW Weekend Y'all!

I'm actually going to do it!  My DH won't know what to think!!!

It's International Hermit and Stitching Weekend!  February 16-18.

This is the place where it started and an explanation:  HERE!

I'm going to be working on my Little House Needleworks ABCs Houses:

Wanna join in?  Anyone can!  As you can see above I'm working on UVW the next to last chart on this series.  I want to finish it because I so want to do her newest series "Farmhouse Christmas"!

Well, let's see how this weekend turns out.  :D

Sincerely trying,

I was able to stitch yesterday afternoon and I finished RST of the Alphabet houses and started UVW:

I also added the word 'one' to my "Hand Over the Coffee" piece by Barbara Ana Designs:

It was a relief to be able to stitch again, especially my Little House Needleworks piece.  I want to finish that.

Blessings on you all,

Much to My Regret...

Dear Friends:

For the time being until something changes, I have to suspend my giveaways.  I am unable to mail anything out for the time being.  DH is still not quite well.  Not enough to be really serious but enough to keep him inside and comfortable as he can be.

My newsletter and new designs, however, will still be posted.

Hope you are all keeping warm and stitching while in a cozy spot.

hugs & prayers,
