So here I sit - blogging away - I have a home office now - which I really love. It is my little sanctuary in the house. I keep my work stuff in there, but also my scrap booking stuff - which I have yet to use and of course my stitching stuff.
I have managed to get some things done while I have been absent - let me show you....
First we have Dress Maker's Daughter by Mirabilia. I finally finished Spring - minus the beads. This project is going to go away for a while. I have decided to make a new start before I begin the second half. It is a lot stitching in this solid piece. It is beautiful but I hope not to see DMC 819 for a long time!
I stitched another RR block - this RR the owner asked we leave the beads off. It is a beautiful and very interesting RR that doesn't stick with the conventional "cameos". My block was from Mermaids of the Deep Blue.
I did start a new project. It is a Christmas piece called "The Spirit of Christmas" by Lynda Orme and it is from Cross-Stitch & Needlework 2010. I am stitching it on a self dyed piece using DMC verigated #99 for the red. Incidentally, I ran out of the red and can't find it anywhere locally. Luckily, a friend from a stitching group offered to send me some! Thank you! When it is done, I plan on shipping it to my mom who is going to make it into a wall hanging.
I also had a chance to try my hand at framing. This is my first time framing something so big and I am pretty happy with the way they turned out. I had these frames on hand. So now Scent of Old Roses and Golden Girl Apples are on display in my home.
I also have a very well deserved, special finish to share with you - but she deserves her own post! I started working on Red Lady Pirate last night and I also have been preparing for my next Round Robin which is to start in January 2013.
Thanks for taking a look!
