Stitching Retreat Stitchy Update

Mary Glover
SAL with Emmanuelle at
Lakeside Linens 32ct Sand Dune
DMC threads

I had 2 finishes at the retreat--here is the first one.....Mary Glover is finished! She was so much fun! The rows still look a little wonky, but they can be stretched straight when framed. This was the first time I had done such a large area of rice stitches and it turned out lovely.

Thanks, Siobhan, for pointing this SAL out on your website. Don't worry, I have Hannah Gipson all kitted up and ready to start :)

Prairie Schooler 2008 ornament freebie
Insert from a stitching shop purchase
Don't know the name
32 ct light green mystery linen
DMC threads-ecru, 815, 895, 921, and 3371

This was my 2nd finish at the retreat. Sorry for the fuzzy pic, but you get the idea.

The Workbasket
Quaker Christmas Holly
32 ct light green mystery linen
DMC 895, 498 and Needle Necessities overdye 152

This one was started at the retreat, but finished at home. I especially like the overdyed border. And the fact that my stack of ornaments for Christmas is growing :)

Edit: I just realized that some beading is missing. Oops-I'll post another pic when that is done.
