This is one of four designs that I finished from the Garden Party by Country Cottage/Crescent threads. These designs stitch up very quickly. I did it on natural linen because I didn't like their fabric choice. The other 3 pictures will follow on another day.

This is my Raise the Roof Happy Camper. It's worked on 36 count and the dark fabric was very challenging. Avery loves his cross stitch picture and can't wait to hang it in his room.

This is a Knotted Tree Design that I finished for Hanukkah. Not alot of designs out there for Jewish Holidays. I worked it in overdyed silks and it stitched up in 2 days.

It's finished. This is the Bent Creek design I was working on at our last stitching day. The picture doesn't do it justice. The colors are beautiful. It at the framers so I hope it comes out great!

Hi Everyone, This is a picture of Boys and Bugs by Country Cottage Needlework. I finished it for the Silver Needle to be donated to the Ronald McDonald House. It was lots of fun and reminded me of my four boys.

Celebrations of Needlework Info on the Site

Hello Everyone,

I hope that everyone is enjoying all the lovely snow! I have been in a stitching slump, so I decided to take a little look at the Celebrations site. Some of the classes are posted, some of the prices and pictures too! It is very exciting, so maybe this evening I will pick up some stitching. I think I would like to start a new project, but I HATE kitting things up. I do think that maybe the next stitching day, which I hope will be in Maine! Maybe we should work on our name tags! Write later. Denise
