Yippee! My finishing mood lastest long enough to get these two all beaded, backstitched and finished!
Just Nan Glow Tin and Humbug
It called for a dark green corded braid, but I like the white better. And this is my first ever humbug finish. I'm not counting this as a 2012 finish since the stitching was finished as part of the 2011 Crazy January Challenge.
I have also done some stash enhancing-
Northwest Sampler Guild Huswif-really lovely!
Stacey Nash-Country Sampler Love Pinkeep & Heart
Lizzie Kate-Winter Fob
Shakespeare's Peddler-Patience Pincushion
I also have given in to the lovely Winder's Keepers by Amy Mitten-greatly influenced by other bloggers (I won't name any names-you know who you are!) I chose the Vierlande and hope to get started today.
And here is Susan Kerndt's Holiday Patches. I have it on the stretcher bars and the pattern drawn on. We have a guild meeting on Tuesday where we will have a demonstration on how to attach the fabric pieces using iron-on interfacing and felt padding. A new technique I have never done. The fabric at the bottom of the picture is the one I have chose to use. Looking forward to getting going on this one!
My annual spring Pacific Ocean retreat has been cancelled this year due to the regional EGA seminar in June (The lady who organizes the retreat is heading up the seminar this year). So I signed up for two Betsy Morgan workshops in Spokane in May. This is the prework to one of the classes. Hope to get this one started today also.
