LK Autumn Boxer finished

This was my Quick Stitch weekend project but was a lot more to it than I thought at first. My intentions were to finish it Sunday night lol.

WIP Monday

yes, I know it is Tuesday but I didn't get a chance last night to post pics.
The top pic is TW The Storyteller and I stitch on that Friday nights. Then it is my Quick Stitch weekend LK Autumn Boxer , which is taking a little longer than I thought it would. And last is Glory Bee's BYOB. I am hoping to finish the LK tonight and then BYOB sometime soon lol.

In the Pumpkin Patch

I've been working on this bit by bit while waiting at the chiropractor (for Lizzie) and during youth group when AJ isn't driving. This is the time of year that I get a little more stitching time... the high school football season is almost over (we're in the playoffs this Friday). That means an end to constant picking up and running for practice for marching band (Lizzie) and football (AJ). Wrestling will start soon. Lizzie has signed up and AJ is contemplating it. That might mean MORE stitching time while waiting for practices to be over and while actually attending the wrestling matches. If AJ participates, they will be on separate teams since Lizzie is 8th grade and AJ is a junior.

I hope to get a lot more done before the end of the year!

Bellpull Done!!!

Yeah it is finally done. All I need to do now is cut it out and put the dowel on it for the hanger. I am very happy with the way it looks. The blue is very rich looking so I am thinking of using Black Walnut or something dark like that for the hanger. I will post a picture when it is all cut out and hung.

Bellpull Photos

Ok well I figured since I had to move my piece up on my stretcher fram I would post a picture. I know some of you are dying to see a picture. Well here it is. I think after I do the "C" I will be half way done all I need to do after that is cut it all out and then attach my piece of dowling that I will use as a hanger. Should have more done tomorrow.

Wren Song Design Update

Ok so here is the latest on the Wren Song Designs. 4 are done and 2 (one pattern) are left to do still. Maybe this week coming I will get them done. The pattern is called the Bridal Roses. They are not very big 3 inches finished actually. So I was talking with the owner of my LNS this week saying I wasn't sure how I was going to finish these off. They are supposed to be done as round ornaments. Apparently that is a very skilled task to be able to do. Sounds to fussy for me. So we decided I was going to get some cream to beige cardstocka nd make them into cards. I think that would be really neat. The actually pattern calls for the pink colours as seen in the top left hand corner but I decided to change them up a little. The last two I have to do will be the pinks (that are called for) for one of them and then the other will be various shades of purple. The first one took for ever to do but the other three worked up really quickly.

Today I spent time working on my Victoria Sampler Welcome Hearts Bellpull. I finished the petite blanket stitch a cross the top and put in the nun stitch. That took a bit of figuring out. I have started down the last side with the blanket stitching which I hope to finish tomorrow and start the cutting as well. I will attempt to do this on my own but if I run into troubles I have my class next weekend so I should be fine.

Yesterday I met a friend for coffee and while waiting for her I saw another lady who used to work at my LNS. We chatted for a bit and she said that she teaches classes and holds a stitching group at her place twice a month. She invited me to join them. She said the teacher that I am taking lessons from now comes and helps out. I am seriously thinking about joining. She told me to call anytime I had any questions, needed any help or just wanted to show her some of my work. I thought that was very nice of her. I might as the teacher next Saturday what the group is like then make my decision as to weather I will go or not. That would be twice a month and the other two weeks I would still go over to the LNS for "private" lessons.
