Muskoka Landscape - finished!
So, here it is... finished!  Once again, this was a workshop taught by Kim Beamish.  I love her projects- they are such fun stitches.  Managed to frame this one myself with a thrift store frame complete with matts that I repurposed and I am very pleased wit...

Muskoka Landscape - Lesson 1
I signed up for an online workshop being taught in Virtual Threads.  There are three lessons and this is the work I did on lesson one.  The project is a whitework landscape designed and taught by Kim Beamish and I am really enjoying it.  Not too much exciti...

I have been working on this embroidered baby quilt for the last six months!  I could not believe how much embroidery was on it once I started.  It looked so simple with the stamped design and consisted of mostly large cross stitch but it took me forever!  I...

Little Butterfly
It seems like I am getting a few little things done lately - very small things!  This is a little cross stitch butterfly stitched onto perforated paper.  It is part of a larger project that a group of us are collaborating on.  The photo does not show that i...

This Year's Resolutions
Well, my resolutions are very different this year!  Here goes... 1. To buy no more stitch supplies unless I need them to finish an ongoing UFO.  This may be unrealistic, so I will make a backup - no more than one purchase a month. 2. To work exclusively on ...

Another Round Robin Project ...
Believe it or not, I am finally catching up here!  The advantage to having given up on housework during the renovations seems to be more stitching time - yay! So, another round robin project caught up and mailed off.  I found some 17th century stitching pat...

Muskoka Landscape - Lesson Two
This is the photo after lesson two is completed.  The satin stitch sections are complete and the stitching for the water.  Very little left to do!

Jim Morrison Jack-O-Lantern
Finally posting a photo of the only jack-o-lantern I got made this year.  Cheating by putting the name in the title of the post but, yes, it is supposed to be Jim Morrison of The Doors.  I made this one for my son - making it for him has been on my Hallowe'...

Some Sampler Stitching
I did these rows of stitching awhile back on a round robin piece and said I would use them again.  Well, here they are! As sometimes happens in the best of families, occasionally a round robin goes awry.  This is what happened last year in a round robin..  ...

Round Robin Work Finished
 The counted thread round robin I was in on EAC Virtual Threads is done now.  I did my work on the last two pieces and received my piece back. These butterflies are what I added on this one.  I was a bit disappointed in my contribution to this one.  If you ...

Upcycling a Bit of Stitching
 I found this cloth at the local thrift store and was charmed by the hardanger motifs on it.  I think it was a cloth napkin but not entirely sure.  It had stains on it but nothing near the motifs so it was fair game for upcycling in my eyes.  One corner had...

Renovation H-E-double hockey sticks
 I wonder if it is only Canadian kids who say that - H-E-double hockey sticks?  Anyway, one way or another, it has been renovation hell around here the last couple weeks! Here is "the Man" taking up the original flooring in the great room downstairs.  Since...
