Thistle Accessories Progress

On Sunday I finished the stitching on the second needle cushion. The colors look much nicer in person. I'm going to start on the adorable little scissor fob next, which is my favorite part of the entire project.

Paula and Denise, you could always join Nataly and me and do the scissor fob, and leave the rest until you're in the mood ;-) It sure is cute.

January Stitching Day??

Hey ladies, how about a stitching day in January???? I'm available 1/8, 1/15, 1/29 and 1/30. Anyone else available for some stitching on any of those days?

A finish and a New SAL

So before I could start a new SAL with Carol I had to finish the other one that we started.  The only thing left is to put it together!  What do you say Carol?  Got time for a finishing day?  This is BBD Peacock Pinkeep done in Blue Lagoon, Collard Greens and Icing.  I like the color way, it doesn't look as antique as the red and green of Carol's but I am a blue girl and when given the chance will always change things to blue.

Next up, Thistle Accessories by JDD.  Remember this one girls??  Well, Carol and I felt we couldn't justify taking more classes if we didn't finish last year's so off we go.  Our needles will really have to fly to get this and the biscornu done.  Wish us luck.  As you can see I haven't touched it since class.  I will post progress each Sunday.  Hopefully that will motivate me.  Happy Stitching!

Thistle Accessories Stitchalong

Ok, I'm ready to get started on the Thistle Accessories Stitchalong. As of January 1st the first pincushion is finished. I finished it a few days after Celebrations.

The second one was started right after I finished the first one, but I didn't like how the pattern was looking in the top section, so I pulled it out. And it's been sitting for all these months waiting for me to pick it back up.

So now I'll start working on it again, but probably not until tomorrow. I'll post an update next Sunday with my progress.

Nataly, ready to start? Denise and Paula, still plenty of time to join us!
