An OLD project

I recently dug out a bunch of WIP/UFO's for the January challenge I posted about earlier and this was one of them. This is from a class I took almost 10 years ago! The class was with Sue Stokes of the Nutmeg Needle and it was called Duet of Hearts. There were 2 needlerolls. I finished the first one many years ago, but had only stitched about 20 stitches on this one before putting it down. I picked it up this week and finished the whole thing in about 3 days. Onto Thistle Accessories! Denise and Paula, want to join me an Nataly in a Thistle stitchalong????

LHN Snow white

As you know,  Carol and I got together last weekend.  It was a real treat to stitch with a friend and catch up.  I miss all of you!  We sat down and caught up for a bit and then whipped out our WIPS and low and behold we were working on the same project.  WHAT???  We couldn't believe it.  We had both chosen Snow White by LHN and I did mine on 32ct Blue Grass.  How fun was that!   Below is a pic of a baby sampler I just finished up for a friend of my mom's.  I still have to add the name and DOB but thought I would share it before I personalize it.  I will post a picture of Thistle Accesories before I start the stitch along with Carol (Denise and Paula, I hope you will join us) and then I will post a weekly update.  Right now I am trying to finish up Peacock Pinkeep.  My last stitch a long with Carol.  She finished and HMMMMM I didn't.  Ohhhhh the pressure.

Snow White by Little House Needleworks

As soon as I saw this I had to have it. Instead of the suggested fabric I stitched it on 28 count blue wing, and I love it. The color isn't quite right in the picture, but you get the general idea. This one was on my January Challenge list, but since I finished it early I'll just add another!

Flipp'n Crazy January Challenge & Thistle Accessories Stitchalong

I don't know if any of you have heard about the Flipp'n Crazy January Challenge but I decided to give it a try. More info here: The goal is to pick 15 projects that are ALREADY STARTED and FINISH them. OK, so finding 15 WIP/UFOs, no problem! I searched through all of my little hidey holes and came up with a bunch of projects in various stages of progress. I'm ready to go.

I talked to Nataly about it on Sunday and we decided to try to finish up our class projects from last year BEFORE this year's Celebration. So we're going to have a stitchalong starting the first week of January to work on Thistle Accessories. The plan is to work on it during the week and post our progress here on Sundays. Want to join us????
