Little House Needleworks Merry Merry stitched on 14 count Aida Coffee Dyed by yours truly. I also tea stained the fabric for the backing and the bow to make it look retro. Recognize the little ginger bread man I got at Hobby Lobby?
Prairie Schooler Barnyard Christmas stitched on 28 count even weave. I changed the pig to pink and I used black and white gingham for the ruching. I also changed the grass color at the bottom to brown as everyone knows pigs like mud. Pardon the flecks of floss that I should have blown off before snapping my picture. I was in a hurry!!
Another Barnyard Christmas. I stitched this last year but I gave it to my sis in law after she saw it and wanted one too. This year she got the pig but in the charted black and ecru. I changed my cow from black and ecru to black and white.
Now for my stash...
I have had this one for a while but forgot to share it. I am becoming a Waxing Moon fan.
And this one I had ordered and it just came in.
I started it last night as I should be able to stitch it quickly. It will look great in my Thanksgiving Dough Bowl. I am using a 32 count Creme Brûlée by R and R Reproductions for Tom Turkey.
I also picked up these hair clips at Dollar Tree. They are great for holding extra fabric out of the way when you are stitching I have some grime guards but honestly I prefer these little grippers!
I know Chelsea and Priscilla were going to the Mid West Stitchers Retreat this weekend so I guess we will have to do without a video from them today, unless they film at the retreat. I just got my regular video so I guess I was wrong about the retreat.I do know Priscilla did a wreath for the auction at the Retreat so I assumed the gals were going. That is one retreat I would love to attend! But Katrina Boyd is doing a retreat in Huntsville in January and I am signed up! I can hardly wait as it will be my first stitching retreat. It gives me something to look forward to after Christmas. It is a small retreat with just 25 stitchers. I think that really allows the stitchers to get to know one another. I am not sure if any Floss Tube gals will be attendance but that would be fun!
Happy Stitching Blog Friends.
