Fireside Stitchery Package

Yesterday I got the 2nd installment for the Halloween Pudgy and the July installment of the Seasons Geometric Club. They are both beautiful. I can't wait to finish the 1st panel of the pudgy. The Seasons club has to wait until I finish the Meadow Grass kit for June. I really like having a stitch guide for the needlepoint I do. I'm not very creative in choosing stitches for effect on my needlepoint projects. I can't wait to finish the pudgy.

Bare Branches

I finished another Seasons Geometric from Fireside Stitchery. This was the May installment of the club. I have to finish the June installment soon because the July one will be here soon. This one was interesting. I liked doing the spider web in the middle. I chose to do the alternate pattern in Band C. I think it turned out beautifully.

I still haven't decided what I want to do with them. I like the idea of coasters but I need to research the available materials. Another possiblility is to bind them together somehow (like a quilt) and frame them. Well, if you have a suggestion, I am open.

Lizzie Kate January Flip It Blocks with charm

I started this project on June 25th (late at night) and finished it June 27th. I stitched it on 28ct Jazlyn Solo Fabric from Silkweaver's FOTM club. I used DMC floss that the pattern called for except DMC3777 it was too close to DMC 221 (they almost blended instead of standing out). So I used DMC 920 instead. It turned out great. My mom loves the winter scene. I love the sheep. It was a very quick stitch. I think I'll make a needle book out of it or maybe a magnet.

Celtic Cross

I finally finished the Celtic Cross on June 22nd. I've been looking for the cable to connect the camera to the computer since then. I used the thread called for in the pattern. The fabric that I used was a solo from Silkweaver's FOTM club. I think it turned out beautifully. I really don't know how I will finish it. Probably frame it.
