A couple of happy dances
Well, one of my fall stitched pieces was finished before Thanksgiving. This is 'I am So Thankful' by Trail Creek Farm. I made a little pillow out of 2 leftover quilt squares (from a quilt that I made in 2001) and then I mounted the cross stitch piece to the pillow with the little buttons. The quilt was made from a pattern called 'Tattered Pioneer' and I used Moda fabrics from their line called 'Pheasant Run'. It remains one of my most favorite lines of fabrics and I wish it was still being made! Gorgeous yummy stuff! Maybe I'll remember to take a picture of the quilt to share soon.
This is 'Apple Sampler' by Birds of a Feather, stitched with Silk n Colors. (finished 11-23) Thanks Barb for the fabric, it was the perfect color and size for this sampler!!
And this is 'Stella Jones' by Examplar Dames. (finished 11-28)
We had a nice, quiet Thanksgiving holiday here. My husband made a wonderful turkey dinner, while I helped with the desserts and stuffing. After turkey, we all settled in for a 'Lord of the Rings' marathon, and I put in a lot of stitching hours. :-) That is why I have 2 happy dances so close together!
The plan, until I am sidetracked again, is to stitch some more on my 'Withering Tulips' by Barrick Samplers, at least put in a few hours before starting something new. We'll see if I stick to the plan, as there are several things kitted up and ready to go here. They are calling my name LOUDLY.
I've changed the name of my blog. I didn't put a whole lot of thought into the first name 'Threads', but was just shooting for something that covers both the sewing and stitching fronts. After a lot of mulling around of 'what to name my blog', I've decided to call my blog 'Gingham Stitcher'.
