Finally, I have a few pictures to post of projects that I have completed, well at least the stitching is finished. It has been a productive week I am pretty happy with the results. Hopefully, this stitching trend continues since I have a few exchanges that need to finish as well.
Lastly, this is a pattern I found in the June issue of The Gift of Stitching. It is a Debbie Draper design and it was a very quick stitch. It is on 14ct Ivory aida (picture not so good) stitched with over-dyed floss called "Ballet" from Ozark Sampler. This will be a scissor fob to be posted in the Monthly Finishing Challenge.
I did manage to make a few stash purchases on-line this month. I have three Bent Creek Stockings and the 2008 PS Santa to add to my 2009 Christmas SAL pile. I think I will have more than enough to keep me busy in 2009
I also purchase a wedge kit from Heartland Needlework's Baker's Dozen collection. You get everything you need to complete the project for a very reasonable price and free shipping. This will be my first time working on linen--I am a little nervous about that one.
As for Me:
Just a little to let you know what is going on with me. The kids are ready to go back to school and I have been hired as a substitute teacher in the school district. Call me crazy, for me it is the perfect job. I set my own schedule and pick the schools I where I want to work as well as grade level. I will be at my kids school so life should be fairly easy. I also took on an extra position with the PTA. Wish me luck.
