Good Morning Stitchy Friends. I will be off to North Alabama Stitchers today, taking a Christmas ornament to work on while I visit with my other stitchy friends.
I did get Joshua's birth sampler back from the Framer...
His 100 day Celebration is August 24th and this will be going along with us. In addition to his sampler I am taking his Christmas stocking.
We believe in big Christmas stockings in our family! This was my first time stitching one of Mama G's Christmas stocking. So it has a few imperfections but over all I am okay with it. Let's just say Crochet will never be my main hobby!:)
I also finished Halloween Hoopla.
I decided not to go with the round finish for this one as I wanted to use it in my big Fall Dough Bowl.
I am looking forward to getting out all my Halloween smalls to display. I am going to wait until mid September to do so. We will be going to the beach the third week in September so my plans are to wait on Fall decor until we get home.
I made a trip to The Cross Stitch Peddler.( Be sure and check out their facebook page.) I picked up Autumn Whirly Gig. I need to get it done to take to Grimmwood. While I was there another stitcher brought in these cute little zip bags she had finished.
The Beach scene is from a Stoney Creek magazine while the Christmas bag is a Lizzie Kate design. Vicki is a very talented stitcher and seamstress. Marlene was working on the Halloween piece. I thought you might like a close up of it.
Girls Night Out...this piece is by Jabco Buttons. You buy the buttons and get the pattern. Call Marlene at The Cross Stitch Peddler( 256-350-7780) to order it and she will be glad to put it in the mail to you! It is adorable. It rather reminds me of Hagrid''s flying motorcycle on the Harry Potter movies.
Plans for this week include working on my rotation as well as getting some more Christmas ornaments stitched up . Have a great week...I hope the Frog stays away from your door.
