La D Da

My current WIP is LaD Da "Old Glory Angel". I am stitching on 35 count "Sheep's Straw" linen by R & R Reproductions and Gentle Arts Sampler threads. I really like the shades of the thread on the fabric. I seen this completed at my LNS and had to stitch it. Here are pics of what the design will look like completed and my WIP.

Stars & Stripes

I haven't been blogging but I have been stitching. I have been spending time sitting with my father in the hospital which allows me to stitch but not blog. I did finish Little House Needleworks Stars & Stripes. I used DMC floss & a blue linen I had in my stash so I am not sure of the name. I haven't decided yet how to finish it maybe a frame or a little pillow. I am trying to work on 4th of July stitchies to complete and hang up. I leave them up a little past the middle of June since I really like Americana things.

New Lizzie Kate charts

I received by Lizzie Kate charts in the mail today. I ordered Fall Crazy & Good Things. I LOVE stitching for fall & Halloween. I can't wait to get started on these cute designs. Here's some pics of the new designs.

Bent Creek Ornament Exchange

I signed up for a ornament exchange through my Bent Creek Yahoo group awhile back & today is the day we opened our packages. I received an ornament stitched by Shari a design by Little House Needleworks Woodland Snowfall. It is stitched over one. It is just adorable. I can't wait to hang this on the tree this year. She sent me the cardinal card I don't know how she knew I love cardinals. It is a perfect little package. Thanks Shari!
