 This is the iStitch Mystery SAL that I'm doing, I have parts 1&2 done so far. I think it's coming along pretty good.

SAL & Mail

Well, I have finished the next part of the Romantique Sampler, it took a little longer this month because of all the other things I'm stitching. I participated in a exchange with the Friendly Stitchers yahoo group and the biscornu I sent off never arrived at its destination so I stitched another one and hopefully it will make it. Here's the sampler up to date, just overlook the hoop marks and wrinkles. I was in a hurry to take a pic.
  Then a week ago I won a giveaway over here and won the punchneedle and my choice of pattern. She had alot of nice patterns but I settled on the Purple Coneflowers. It's been a long time since I did any of this, hopefully I can squeeze some time out and give this another try.

iStitch Designs Mystery SAL & Other WIP

I have joined another SAL, this makes about 4 now. Will I ever learn. Anyway this one is a mystery and when all stitched will be finished onto a box top. You can read about it here . I'm stitching it on Newcastle 40ct antique white and using Valdani Hand- Overdyed Floss in Mauve Orchid. The pic makes it look dark.

This is another SAL, called The Tree of Life by Klimt. I'm doing this one on Facebook through Yiota'sCross Stitch. I just have page 1 done so far and have page 2 to start .

 This is the  Star Sampler so far
Now I need to work on the Romantique Sampler before the next part comes.
Wish there was m ore time to stitch and had a couple more hands.

Biscornu Exchange

I participated in a Biscornu Exchange with the Friendly Stitcher's yahoo group. This is the biscornu I received from Denise in Saudi Arabia and I sent one to her. It doesn't look like Denise has received hers and it was mailed in July, so I am stitching her another one.
The biscornu is beautiful and so delicate looking, I just love it.

TU SAL & Birthday Present

I've been out of town and busy, so I'm just now getting around to posting my Tu SAL jar.I've had a little more progress in filling it up.

 Also my husband surprised me with this  crazy quilt door pillow for my birthday. It is made by Pam over at Kitty & Me Designs. I think she has some beautiful things.
Anyway this was one of my gifts and I just love it.
