Spring...the season of new beginnings!

My plan was to get back to my blog when Spring arrived. I am a couple of weeks past but here I am.

I am not going to go into why I haven't blogged in over 7 months. Just alot of everything! I have got quite a bit of stitching done these last 2 weeks however.'

First is Blackbird Designs, Strawberry Garden Sampler. I stitched this with the threads as charted on 32ct. Cream Belfast.

I chose not to put in all of those lazy daisy stitches. I thought it looked too busy. I am very pleased with how this turned out.

Then I couldn't wait to stitch up this new one from Hands On Design, Stitch Every Day. This one I stitched with the DMC equivalents and it is on 32ct. Raw. I will be finishing this one as the drum and it is going to go on my desk at work!


The next one is one of Plum Street Samplers, A Friend Loveth. This one I did with DMC's also. This is on 32ct. but I don't remember what color linen.


North Pole Express is a free pattern from Little House Needleworks when you buy the charted threads. I got mine from 123stitch.com. I thought it was so cute and it was a very fast stitch!


Now to decide what to work on next? I will start something new but I am going to start some kind of rotation with my "And They Sinned". I would like to get some serious progress done on that.

Well, thats it for now. Hopefully I will be back next week with more to share! Thanks for stopping by and Happy Stitching!
