Saturday Stitching

I had an FFO this week.

 Here is my Prairie Schooler Hen....stitched on the fabric from my Hey Chicky Kit from Jen's Stitching Niche.  The trim is chenille from Crescent Colors.  And here is the back...

Jen sent the finishing material as well.


So I have been stitching on Fall and Winter projects this week.

I am not using the suggested flosses on this one. I am trying to use up my Victorian Motto Threads and my Colour and Cotton Flosses.  The cute needle minder is from Brenda's Minders and More.

On to winter...

I changed the red on this piece to Cupid by Classic Colorworks.

This is a pretty quick and fun stitch.

Now here is my big project....it will take years to complete but I will plug along.

It will be a beauty when it is completed.

I am using Cupid for the Red( Classic Colorworks) and Pine( Gentle Arts) for the green. It is nice just using two colors but quakers can be difficult to stitch if you do not keep up with where you are! So I am marking off my stitches as I go. I decided to stitch this on 16 count aida to help keep me on target with the stitching. I love linen and even weave but it is easy to get "off" on your counting.

Well that is all my stitching for this week. Come back next Saturday to see what Nana has been up to!

I never cease to be amazed at all the stitching you do! You are so fast!!

I adore your little rooster and the finish. The other pieces are divine too. The Quaker piece is going to be a stunner. I love the idea of highlighting what you have done. I need to copy that idea on those difficult to keep up with pieces. I am going to try and do a stitching post late this evening. That Jeff has me up and running already today, but I have stuck with my rotation longer than ever before.

Well done on your rooster finish, Arlene! It is adorable. Your WIPs all look super. I really like the Heartstring Samplery piece. The Christmas Quaker is going to be stunning. Enjoy your day!

Oh Arlene, the Quaker one will be beautiful! Such detail!

Arlene I love your rooster with his egg feet. LOL!!! And the back is adorable too. What a sweet finish. Everything else you are working on is going to be wonderful too. You have very good taste. The Christmas Quaker will take some time but it will be a stunner. The French one I made took about 100 hours and yours is bigger yet. Have a great week. RJ@stitchingfriendsforever

Your rooster finish is super cute! Love both your fall and winter WIPs. Quaker Christmas has been maturing in my stash for ten years. After seeing your start on Quaker Christmas II, I think it's time it saw the light of day!
