I spent Saturday afternoon stitching with a friend, and that is the most stitching I got done this weekend. I finished two pieces this week, including one Friday evening as the kick-off to my International Hermit Stitching Weekend. I sure wish I could have hermited more!! This is Love in a Manger by Brightneedle. I am going to have it framed in red... Won't it be cute??
And this is my start on HoHoHo in a Row, another Lizzie Kate Quick It! I hope to finish this real soon!
I was given this piece about two years ago (WHY IS IT SIDEWAYS???!!!). I knew just what I wanted to put in the cute frames--my two PS birds that I stitched, and two more that I was planning to stitch! I had started the first two on 35-count hand-dyed fabric from R&R, and had to wait for more to be dyed in order to do the last two birdies! But today I put them in the frames and with hubby's help, got it hung up in the dining room.
Close-up of the left side... Need to get votives still...
And close-up of the right side...
I think it will look great with other finishes in the frames,too -- like N-O-E-L or L-O-V-E. Going to look for patterns tonight!
These are the three pieces, finished, that I sent to The Attic Needlework, in Mesa, AZ for the silent auction to benefit Breast Cancer Research Foundation. It was held this weekend, and I hope it was a success!
A little piece that was going to go to Myrtle Beach, but I was afraid it was not 'fall-ish' enough, so kept it!
Well, Blogger is messing around with my pictures and I am pretty tired, so am going to close this post and try to do more this week. I have to finish the other pattern I stitched this week into a door hanger, then maybe get a few more stitches in on HOHOHO in a Row.
Have a Happy Thanksgiving holiday to those readers in the U.S.!
