Extra Magazine

I bought the November issue of Cross-Stitch & Needlework thinking that my subscription ran out and a couple of days later mine came in the mail. So now I have two copies. If anyone would like to have my extra one, you can leave me a message and I will be glad to send it off to you.

I have a multiply site that was started a couple of years ago, to put my photos of the things I had beaded and I started cross stitching again after several years, so they have been added to it as well.
If anyone is interested they can go here and have a look.
After moving I have found more pics that I need to add, but you know how that is. Thanks for taking the time to look.
Everyone have a great day.

Well, today is the new moon and time to post pics. I thought I had posted my start, but can't find it if I did. I'm still not very good with this blog thing. I do need to find a bigger jar or bowl as this one is getting full, granted it is a little one.

SAL Finish

Well, I have finished my SAL piece for the LHN yahoo group. I think it turned out pretty good. Cute design. It stitched up rather quickly. Now I need to find a framer or figure out how to frame it myself. The framer I used closed so finding another one is hard. Now to finish a couple of things already started or, maybe a new piece.

Wisteria Beaded Medallion

A few months ago I came across this site while looking for something. I thought that would be something a little different to stitch, so I tried a free pattern.Since I do some bead work I had plenty of beads so I purchased this medallion.I don't think it turned out to bad. My husband being the engineer he is, said it's not centered. Oh well. There are some other beaded medallions that I may try later.

The SisterHood is Ready to Travel

Jill is ready to send the sisterhood on and you can see her post to find out details. If you haven't heard the story of how it got started you can read about it here at Daffycat.
It is awesome story and I would love the opportunity to stitch it.

The scissor fob is Part 2 of the Chair Necessaire . I used the same fabrics and threads as in part 1. I thought I would show the two parts together.
Part 3 looks as if it is a pocket for scissors that will be sewed onto part 4. It looks like it will be a place to hold all your stitching tools. Now to wait on the Fall issue of A Needle Pulling Thread for part 3. Plenty to stitch in the meantime.

SAL Progress

I thought I would post my progress of my SAL with the LHN yahoo group. It is coming along nicely. I think it will turn out to be a cute piece.
I'm also working on the Floral Fifteen Biscornu by Just Nan and I am finally finished with the squares on the white linen. Now time to do the green.
