The first is Letters n' Leaves by La Di Da. It has only 2 colors. It has double border of black squares. My sister Jennifer has already completed this one. I spent an hour on it and completed 1-1/2 sides. It will be pretty simple.
The second was Lucky Cats by Whiskerkins. I decided to stitch it on Aida. I have been a linen snob for about 10 years now but with my eyes...So, I had this Aida and thought it would look good on it. I ran out of the border color for the cats and have to get some more.
The third new start was the stained glass window bookmark. As you can see, I only spent an hour on it. It is relatively complicated for such a small thing.
The last is something I've been wanting to work on for a while, Roses by Carol Algie Higginbotham.I love blackwork. This pattern has several different patterns on one project. The last couple of years, I have gotten involved with Zentangles. This Roses pattern reminds me of Zentangles. It is beautiful. I hope that I can complete it as beautifully as the pattern is.
Here is the Owlet - Tango. I have completed more of the cross stitching. Once I finish the cross stitching, I will then add the beads. The stitching is over halfway completed. I hope to complete it by the end of the week.
The second update is Tuffet's Cupboard. There are 4 patterns, I have completed 1 and am in the middle of the 2nd pattern. I finished the green mirror looking thing in the red box and the spools of thread in the yellow box.
Finally, I have completed the red block for the Bent Creek's World of Color. I am starting the "orange" block. As I stated before, I am doing the border as I work each block.
Now for Finishes:
|Mari's Project Bags|
|My Mother's Project Bags|
(I stitched one of each for myself as well)
The last finish that I have is the "Road to A Friend's House" by Sisters and Best Friends. I didn't want to put the white squares in the border. But, my sister Jen said I should. She was right. It turned out great. As I was trying to photograph it for my blog, Pearl decided that she wanted to be involved. It took 5 attempts to get a picture of the pattern. I don't know how I am going to finish it. We will see.
Thanks for stopping by
