What Next

Yay! I have finished the gift and it is being framed as I type!  So I ahead of schedule for giving it.  I am super excited about this and can’t wait to show you but I want to share it with the recipient first.  So here is a reminder of what it looked like before….


So now I have to decide what to work on next……


Oh the choices!   

And like many of you I am sure this does not even begin to cover the stash! These are just the pieces I want to start before others.  But I have decided to do another gift this time for my grandmother.  It is not very clear but the second kit on the second row is a winter corn field with a red barn and geese flying over.  Canadian geese are very special to my family because they remind us of my grandfather, so I want to work on that piece and hope to give it to her for Christmas. 

Here is an update on the BF’s piece, he thought he would beat me, ha


Right now I am back to working on my knitting at least for a little while, I hope to divide my time evenly between the time from here on out.

Happy Stitching!

Almost finished

I am so close to being finished with my most recent project, sorry no pictures it has been personalized and don't want the recipient to have any clue about this present, only a handful people know what it is but the clock is ticking so I am getting back to a lazy day of stitching!

New Stash

I am always looking for cross stitch shops, and I had a hard time trying to find this last one, The Needler in Lexington.  I kept driving past it then turning around, and driving past again.  But I had parked and walked around the downtown area to take pictures for a work presentation, and it was right behind me and I never noticed!  Once I finally found it I looked around and got three new patterns to add to my collection

Clemson (to combat the USC project)



And Jeanne over at Willow Tree Stitcher is working on a beautiful Pride and Prejudice sampler, I have been interested in various Jane Austen samplers so I found this one at The Needler and just had to have it!


Hopefully I will get a lot of work done this weekend on my project the deadline for giving it away is quickly approaching.
