Saturday Stitching

 Welcome Stitchers....this post will be a bit shorter than last weeks Haulapalooza.  I did get my September and November Word Plays all laced and ready for display.  While getting out my October Word Play, I found another finish I had almost forgotten.  Forest Snowfall by Little House Needleworks. I am thinking of using this one on a wreath.

While in the finishing mode, I finished my first Christmas Ornament. This is from Annie Beez Christmas Folk Art Christmas. By the way, Annie made a new Floss Tube that you might enjoy watching. I think the designer videos are some of my favorites.  Well I realize now I posted this last week!!! I guess I liked it that much! Nancy in Buffalo if you will email me at I will be glad to help you find this snowflake.

I got a start on my December Word Play.

And a head on the Bunny from Ah This Spring by Notforgotten Farm.

I also spent some quality time stitching on Sunday afternoon. I watched Deb and Liz of Counrty Stitchers while I stitched.

My Penny Pumpkin is nearing completion.

I wanted to recommend a new floss tuber, Jean Farish. Jean is known to many stitchers for her designs and classes. I have learned a lot just watching her two videos on Floss Tube. Be sure and check her out. 

Happy Stitching.

Arlene, everything is just adorable. That bunny head is so cute. I think those wordplays are like PS stitches and look so clean and fresh on Aida. I also like the brighter colors for them. I watch Deb and Liz a lot but it takes me three days to get through theirs and Saltbox Stitcher. My attention span is more like 20 minutes. I think it is because I watch so little TV. I saw the Jean girl pop up, so I will give her a view. The ornament is so cute.

Good for you on getting your wordplays laced, Arlene! Lovely stitches that you shared in today's post. I do like your brighter colors with the wordplays. Thanks for the floss tube recommendations! Enjoy your Saturday and weekend!

Love the thread you used for your word plays. I have to do September - I am going to use my Victoria Sample thread for the first time. I make a band on my Word Plays and put it around a Pillow. I learned that from LossinFloss on you tube.

Your Word Plays are beautiful and quite an accomplishment! I look forward to the completion of December! The snowflake with the ice skate is so cute!

And thanks for the recommendation about Jean Farrish. I will check out her floss tube!
