Another snowman finish

I didnt get to stitch much on Sunday...but that is okay. I did get to stitch last night and finished this one late. The scan makes it look a little lighter. I am going to finish this one into a small pillow I found some fabric that will look nice.
This is by Lizzie Kate January Flip it stamp. I used DMC thread and a piece of evenweave. I have two more by Lizzie Kate I am going to stitch. I hope to get them all stitched & finished into pillows for my basket.
I love snowmen!!

Snowman finish

This is the Flip it Bits "A Bit of January" by Lizzie Kate. I used DMC threads and a piece of linen. I picked up this fabric last summer not sure what I would do with it but loved it. It is by Buggy Barn. I love snowmen and January is my birthday month. I made this one into a little pillow. I waited to stuff it so it would scan better. Now I am going to go stuff & sew it shut.

The other WIP I am working on is another Lizzie Kate Flit it January stamp. I hope to finish it today or tommorrow night. I am going to take it with me today to a family lunch and hope to stitch while I watch the kids play. It is another snowman.

Here is the SanManOriginal I have been working on. I had almost completed the stitching last night when I realzied I was off and the last "S" wouldn't fit. So tonight I ripped out all of kisses and restitched it. I used white 32 count linen with a DMC varigate thread. I already had the material for the back it has pink & red hearts all over it. The pink hearts pull out the variagation in the thread. I love Valentines Day and hearts. This is such a cute pattern and very fast stitch...if the frog doesn't visit!

Final post tonight

Another Lizzie Kate! I really love this one. The colors are so wonderful. I stitched this on a piece of evenweave from my stash so I am not sure of the name. I picked up a bunch of fabric when my LNS went out of business this last summer. I also used DMC floss to stitch it. I have the cutest fabric with penguins all over it for the back. I just can't decide if I should finish it as a ornament or small pillow.
That is all the photos for tonight. This is what I have been stitching the last few months when I wasn't blogging.
I have the best SIL in the world. She has seen a chart that I have from Waxing Moon Design called Welcome to the Nuthouse. I am going to stitch it for her as a surprise. I will post a picture of it later.
Now off to stitch on my SanManOriginals message board valentine ornament. I should be able to finish it tonight. If I do finish it tonight I will post a picture tomorrow. I already have the fabric for the back that will match the colors perfectly.
Off to stitch!!

Final finish for 2007

This is Dear Santa We've got Cookies by Lizzie Kate. I used linen from stash and DMC floss. I found this cute fabric last year. I don't know if you can tell but it has the cutest little gingerbreads all over it. Lizzie Kate is one of my favorite designers.

Recent finishes

This is an ornament from JCS Christmas ornament magazine. It is by Angel Stitching.
I am trying to load 4 pictures but I am having issues with blogger tonight. This is one of the designs in the Lizzie Kate Tiny tidings XII. I stitched this on a ivory linen from my stash and DMC threads. I have the fabric to finish this into a small ornament or pillow. I just haven't decided how I want to finish it.

SanManOriginal Halloween Exchange

This is the little witch that I stitched in October for the SanManOriginals Message board halloween ornament exchange. I used sparkly linen piece from my stash. It was so fun to stitch and the colors were so bright. I say this about all of these charts but I have just enough fabric to make myself one.

Christmas Ornament Exchange

Here it is! I had so much fun stitching this little snowman. I love snowmen and I really hope the person I stitched it for loves it to. This is a snowman from Button up your Overcoat by 4 My Boys. I used dmc threads and a piece of linen from my stash. I am thinking I need to stitch one for my tree too. This was part of the SanManOriginal Message board christmas ornament exchange.

Not enough hours in the day

I want to so badly to spend more time blogging this year. Things are starting to settle down after Christmas but then everyone got sick. So we are now almost completely well and that helps with having more time. I have so much stitching to post. I am going to make it a priority to post to my blog. I need to upload my pictures and then I can post them.

Right now I am working on a Christmas exchange....I know that sounds funny but I was part of a Christmas ornament exchange back in December. A number of other stitchers never receieved an ornament so I signed up to stitch a ornament for one of them. I am almost done with the stitching and then I have to finish it into an ornament I hope to mail it out on Tuesday. I will post a picutre when I am completed since I don't believe the person receiving the ornament knows I am stitching it for her. I am stitching her a really cute snowman.

I also need to post a picture of my Halloween exchange and what I received.

Now off to finish my snowman ornament.
Gingerbread HouseThis is my Gingerbread House by Country Cottage Needleworks. I used a piece of lavendar linen from my stash to stitch it on and used DMC floss. It was a SAL from one of my yahoo groups. I really love the colors in this. It is so pastel and very pretty. Now I need to press it and put it in the frame.
