iStitch part 5

I downloaded part 5 last Friday but was not able to xstitch it til later on that day because I had an eye appointment ..... and they dilated my eyes.  I did manage to get it done before midnight that night but I didn't get it turned in to Carol til Sat morning.  Oh well.  Here it is though!!!  I'm using Hand Dyed Fibers in regular silk Enchanter Rose 1325/27/29.

Happy Stitching!

iStitch Mystery SAL part 4....

Here is my part 4 of the iStitch Mystery SAL!  I hurriedly printed it off this a.m. to stitch up after a busy morning but was able to get it done and off to Carol to have.  I'm having SOOOOO MUCH FUN doing this one that I may stitch it for a Christmas present for a friend.

I am using Hand Dyed Fibers Enchanter Rose 1325/27/29 combo and you can see my new Gingher Alicia Scissors laying there also. 

I hope everyone has a great weekend.  I am busy with the kids and their activities and filling my time in between with as much stitching as I can.  I will be going to Sampler Sunday Stitching at the Attic this Sunday and that's ALWAYS a treat to be with other stitchers who share your same passion for xstitching!

Happy Stitching!

Remembering ..... September 11, 2001

I wanted to post something here to honor those who lost their lives on Sept 11, 2001......a  day American's will hopefully never forget.  I am sure we each could say what we were doing that day and what time it was when we found out about this horrible and tragic news.  I PRAY we never forget!

Part 3 of my SAL.....

I'm sorry for not posting more recently but once school started for my kids, I had to get myself on a new schedule to coincide with their schedules and life has been busy ever since.  I have kept stitching through it all even if it is a few stitches here and there.  I hope to post more information this coming week and some finishes I've done, some WIPs, some SALs and who knows what else.  I will try not to bore you though.

Here is my part 3 of iStitch's Mystery SAL.  You can see everyone's variations of this Mystery here.

I did win the contest from Needle Work Press for the Anne Wheatley 1828 contest that Vicki (the reproduction sampler designer) was hosting.  She told me this information a couple of Saturdays ago when I went to the Attic for their Saturday Stitch In.  That was a LOT of fun that day.  You can see the prize I won on the Attic's newsletter here.   It is down on page 4 I believe.  I think I get to chose either the round or square tin.  I'm not sure but I'm just THRILLED that I won!  You can even see my WIP on page 14 of the Attic's newsletter.

I'm currently working on ornaments for Christmas, and I will soon start this week on my donation for the Attic's Breast Cancer Fundraiser Silent Auction event.  I'm not sure what but if you have a great idea, please post what you think I could stitch for the auction. 

Happy Stitching everyone!
