I'm combining a little of this and a little of that in this post...because I'm late on my postings! (knowing me, I'll miss the date for WIPocalypse again and post November's in December!)
Warning - Lots of pictures....this is what happens when my lazy butt only posts about once or twice a month!!
November Thanksgiving TUSAL:
Before the weeekend, my QS Dream of Dahlia by Heaven and Earth Designs
After the weekend: Finished! :) This is stitched on Brandied Apple dyed fabric from Silkweaver Fabrics. Had to get this one done so I had time to have it framed and shipped for a Christmas gift.
Before IHSW, I was able to finish another one of my pieces, Blue Lanterns. This is also going to be a Christmas gift:
I am SOOO happy with myself that I made my Christmas gift goals this year! Now I can focus on ME ME ME stitching! :)
I also wanted to share my "secret stitching" from last month.
I stitched and finished this little needlework travel kit for Ewa using the beautiful silk floss she sent me. Here's some pictures:
and the Middle! :)
I think Ewa and I are in a gifting war...which is WONDERFUL! And...we shall see who wins!
She soon followed the receiving of this gift with RAKing me this fantabulous HAED chart, Paradise Found by Janelle Nichol:
I've already purchased all the floss and put my order in for some Magic Guide.....I plan to start this baby SOON! It's so different from anything I've stitched and I love love love the colors!!
I was also recently gifted the adorable QS Dragonflies also from HAED by Ching-Chou Kuik. A generous stitcher from FB, Margo, sent it to me.:
With the stash I've developed from my new found love of dyed fabric, I'm very sure I have something perfect to stitch this piece on!
For those of us in the US....WHO'S READY FOR BLACK FRIDAY!? I'm ready!!
I've taken the day off from work and I have my stitching ready for me to sit and enjoy all day while the crazy shopping takes place without me!! I do plan to do some online shopping, because of some dyed fabric sales <sigh, addict addict addict> and some stocking stuffers for the family.
As always, a huge thank you to all of you that take the time out of your day to read my LONG posts!!
This has been a wonderful, wonderful stitching year for me, and I couldn't have enjoyed it like I have without all of your support!
