Biscornu & WIP

Be Still My Heart
I've had this finished for a couple of weeks now but forgot to take a pic and post it. This design is by Pine Glen Designs. It also has a needlebook chart and scissor fob chart as well. Just haven't had time to stitch those.

I'm doing a SAL with Friendly Stitchers yahoo group and have finished the second part , here is that pic
I'm not really happy with the way the spider web roses turned out on this, but ripping out and doing over wasted to much thread as I'm using silk fibers for this.

I'm doing another SAL and I'm a little behind and don't have the next parts finished to show yet.

And then I have started this bead project, I'm doing a little bit at a time as it is going to be a surprise for my husband's birthday. It's not until November so I should have plenty of time.

Meet Tiny Tim

Tiny Tim

A few weeks ago I was over at Tricia's blog and she had a couple of bears her daughter had made.They were just adorable and I love bears. She gave me her daughters link, so I went over to have a look. She had Tiny Tim up for adoption. I just had to have him.I'm sorry to say I've lost the email that had her daughters info.

He is sitting on a shelf in my front room where I do some stitching .

Woodland Star

I have just finished this charted canvas design. It is by Nancy's Needle. I just loved the colors when I saw the model stitched in a shop and had to have it.It was a little time consuming since I haven't done a piece this size before. I had done a couple of small freebie pieces to see how I would like it. This is about 8.5 x 8.5

Not that I need anymore things to try I really like it and have another piece kitted up to do. My pile is growing to fast and not enough time or hands to do everything.

A Few Finishes

I've got a few more finishes and quite a big pile that needs framing. I've had these done a couple of weeks.
First up is The Stitcher. It's by Homespun Elegance.
I stitched it on Amber Linen with the recommended threads. Sorry about the wrinkles,I haven't pressed it yet.I've picked out a frame but haven't ordered it yet.

Next up is A Little Love by Lizzie Kate. It came with fabric and the little button and beads.I used Weeks Dye Works threads for it. A cute little piece.

Then I've been doing a little beading and beaded this wooden needle case. It is by Beth from  She has really cute patterns for needle cases.
