Stitching Saturday

This weeks stitching has been limited to Dorothy's Discovery and I hope to put the last stitches in Amelia's gift today.  Then to finish it before our family celebration.

So I thought I would share some of my stash and some of my plans for future stitching.

Black Walnut, Prussian Blue, Rose Gold, Pine Needles and Carmine Red came in the mail from Colour and Cotton.  The Prussian Blue and the Carmine Red will come in handy for Patriotic Stitching.

I picked these two up at Cross Stitch Peddler this week.  ( And I just went in to buy a floss!) I am on the subscription list for Farmhouse Christmas however. I have stitched two out of the series so far. They will be displayed at Grimmwood.  Long May She Wave will be done in the Winter. Stitchers can never really stitch seasonally, we work ahead.

I had a gift certificate for my birthday from 123 Stitch so I ordered these Frosted Pumpkin Stitchery designs. I ordered them for the motifs....

I love the cute little jack in the upper right corner.

I can see some individual Christmas ornaments being done from this chart.

I have been wanting to start this one for quite some time. Cool Stitching for a hot NoAla day!!

Prairie Schooler is my favorite designer. I never tire of them.

I plant to stitch serenity and place it on the stand that  now holds Sunshine on a Stem.

And finally...

I know this will take me years to stitch but it will be lovely when it is done.

Happy Stitching and Stashing Friends.

Keep up the good works guys I've incorporated you guys to my own blogroll.

That Quaker piece is pretty. I think Faye from Carolina Stitcher did one similar to that.

What great projects you have lined up for yourself Arlene! Garden Christmas is certainly an ambitious one, will you stitch on it a little each day?

Love the Abby Rose design and the PS Autumn one is a favorite as Fall is my favorite season. great idea to use the Pumpkin Stitchery for ornaments. Looking forward to seeing all these patterns come to life!

Great choices for future stitches Arlene. I love all of them and can't wait until you start the Quaker stitch which I know you will enjoy. Hope you are having a great weekend. We have escaped the heat by coming to the beach. I had a hard time getting on but finally found a way to find our blog so I could visit all the blogs I go to. RJ

I see lots of beautiful stitching in your future, Arlene! And you've enabled me--as soon as I saw that cute Abby Rose design, I added it to my shopping list :) So adorable! And that Quaker Christmas is stunning--what a heirloom that will be.

Enjoy this last week of June!
