Long Time

I think this one is called 'Peace' but it's been a while since I finished it-it is from a somewhat recent issue of Just Cross stitch and is designed by 'Midsummer Night Designs'. I used the recommended threads on 32 count lambswool linen. I did stitch the 'peace' in the wrong color, but was finished with it before noticing my mistake, I liked it enough to just leave it. Very cute, sweet little design!

'3 Pink Houses' by Ewe & Eye & Friends, on 36 ct Lakeside 'Patina' I made a pretty significant boo-boo on this one on the border, which required either a whole bunch of ripping out, or some creative modifications for the entire center section-I chose to modify and so mine is more rectangular shaped than the model. :-)

A Little Stoney Creek designs stitched for a friend-bad picture! It's on 28 ct. antique white evenweave and has a lot of metallic thread.

Stars & Stripes by Little House Needleworks

Mill Hill pin kit

'Checkered Liberty' by M Designs (kit with hand-dyed gingham linen)

It seems like I'm averaging around 3 or 4 posts a year lately. I always think I will do better and post more often, but other things push it to the back burner.....Anyway, as I was driving home this morning from an appt. I thought of this blog and decided by golly I would update it with some pictures, mostly of stitching that has been finished a while back. These won't be in order of completion, just in the order I find them on a disc and upload them. :-)
This is probably enough pictures for one post, so I'll save the others for future posts.
