Small Finish

I decided I needed a 'portable' snip basket. I've been lusting after the cute little one that Denise has but since I couldn't remember where she got it I decided to do this quick little ORTS Baby Boxette from Susan Greening Davis. I used GA Peacock thread, and really like the way it came out. It only took a couple of hours to complete. Now I just have to get some brads!

Peacock Pinkeep progress

I finished the stitching on BBD Peacock Pinkeep, and the coordinating needle book. Really enjoyable stitching! I used the same colors for the needle book, although it suggested slightly different colors. Not sure when I'll get around to the finishing work on these, since I'd rather stitch than do finishing work. Looking forward to seeing Nataly's done up in different colors.

Slow progress on SAL!

Really slow progress. No time for stitching, blogging, or thinking.  I do like the color changes though. Carol, do the needlebook in the same colors of your pinkeep it will look great.  As for another SAL, I have to finish this one first, so count me out.

Stitchalong anyone?

Anyone interested in starting a new stitchalong when Nataly and I finish Peacock Pinkeep? I noticed that the Yahoo group will be starting the Little House Needleworks Family Sampler soon. Since most of us are LHN fans that might be a good one for us to do. OR, we could do a Scandinavian Stitches one! We all have some of those :-) Anyone interested?

Peacock Pinkeep progress

Nataly and I decided to do a stitchalong for Blackbird Designs Peacock Pinkeep (before Nataly got overwhelmed by back-to-schools things to do). I started working on it about 2 weeks ago, but have been seriously sidetracked by work for much of that time. Since it's such an easy stitch I did manage to get quite a bit done though, and may be able to finish it up this weekend. The alphabet band section is finished
Now I'm working on the peacock that goes on the top part

I haven't decided yet whether to do the needle book that's included. Although it has a peacock's head it uses completely different colors. I found a Shaker box in my stash (is anyone surprised?) that I might use to display it until I'm ready to tackle their assembly instructions later.

Nataly decided to do hers in actual peacock colors, instead of the unusual colors it calls for. Can't wait to see what that looks like (hint, hint, Nataly!)

Why don't some of you post some pictures of what you're working on?
