I love it all: embroidery, canvaswork, quilting, crochet. So much to do, so little time.

December IHSW

Hey Blog Buddies,

Are you all ready for Christmas?  I am, finally, so I was able to devote a little time to stitching this past weekend.  Winter Logs got a little love.  Here is the before photo:

And here is what it looks like now:
(indoor photo w/flash because of nasty weather)
I'm now caught up with this phase of the SAL.
Next, I worked on a "new" piece that I started this week.
I was pawing through my stash
and found a seasonal chart that I forgot I had
which had been gifted to me from my friend Anne (no blog).
Here is LHN's Warm Winter Woolens:
After having stitched my last Halloween ornament
on 40-count linen, I was looking forward to
working on a lower count.
The directions called for
Lakeside Linens Vintage Exemplar
and I was happy because I knew I had that fabric.
Surprise:  40-count!  oh well...
It's turning out well--I really like that sheepie!
No, I didn't do all of the above stitching this weekend!
I had had a good start on both pieces
and wound up working a little on both
on Saturday and Sunday.
And last night I started (cough) another new piece from stash.
I'll show you that when I have a little more done on it.
That's it from here.

Thanks for visiting!
