Up On The Roof!

This weekend, I resolved to make some visible progress on House #6. I am happy to be able to announce that I made it to the roof….AND BEYOND !!

I also participated in a “Stitch and Chat with A Designer” via The Stitchers’ Village.  We all picked either “Meow Spoken Here” or “Woof Spoken Here” and stitched and chatted with “Stitchy Kitty” designer Michelle Lutzen, giving her lots of design ideas.

My Needle is Smokin!


Thanks to some intolerable temps around here and lots of Red Sox to watch on TV, I’ve found quite a bit of time to stitch.

My strong sense of completion is being satiated lately by flippin’ through my extensive freebie collection, and discovering some quickies that just thrill me.  Here’s a darling little French number that has been calling my name for several years.  I used a scrap piece of 28 ct. grey evenweave and some Gentle Arts Black Crow.  I loved every second of stitching this one.

This next is a La-D-Da freebie that I picked up at Keepsakes a couple of weekends ago. Barb cut me a small piece of 32-ct Belfast Autumn Fields, and I stitched it with DMC Variations #4130. Stitched it up while watching the 25 anniversary concert of Les Mis on PBS. What a production! Fabulous!

These little projects have proven to be nice breaks from “Over the River,” but I am making good progress on it as well.  It is nice to see Santa all completed!


Hope your needle is blissfully sailing along as well!!
