Another Fabrege Egg

This egg I thought was a geometric of cubes. Boy was I wrong. I keep trying to figure out which part was the top of the box. The egg is really covered by two different sets of pinwheels. One is a purple and green pinwheel while the other is the red and blue. I stitched it using contential stitch for the pinwheels. The thread used for the pinwheels was Kreinik metallics. The background was done in a bargello using DMC Black (310). I enjoyed doing this egg; it was a quick stitch.

Seasons from Fireside Stitchery

Fireside Stitchery has a stitching club that I joined. Each month they send a needlepoint pattern with all the materials needed to finish the project. The first one was in January and was titled Winter Snowflake. I started it in January and finished it this weekend (February 10th). I really like working on this one. I can't wait to start the February one (Spring Flowers). The project used canvas, Kreinik metallics, Neon Rays, Watercolour, Wildflowers, DMC, and beads.

EGA Sampler

Well I have posted about this sampler before, so now here it is. Each band of the sampler is in alphabetical order. Thanks to Brigette Wallace and Edie Wellemeyer for creating the project for our group. I still have two bands left the Stumpwork and Z band.

Present Projects

One of my New Year's Resolutions was to complete a project in the same year that I started it. Well I first have to finish the projects that are so old I forget when I started it. Truly, there are not that many maybe 3 or 4. (I have an compultion to complete what I start.) My sister, Jennifer, has shown me a way to stitch and not get bored. She calls it her stitching rotation. So I've decided to start one. You can see to right what my rotation is right now. In this blog I have some of the projects that are in progress.

First is the penguin stocking. I started this a least two years ago and I'm halfway through.
Second is the Rainbow birds that I started for my mother in December.
Third is a plastic canvas Owl noteholder that I started last weekend. I'm almost finished with it. (I would have been finished last weekend but I ran out of thread).
