I'm back from another weekend at the Pacific Ocean! It was 3 days of stitching, eating, stitching, eating & more stitching!
Here is what I worked on-
Start #1 Jeannette Douglas My Stitching Treasures
This is what it should look like when I'm finished. This project was a gift from a very generous stitching friend and it is turning out beautifully. And yes, the box was included in the gift!
Start #2-Northwest Sampler Guild Huswif Needleroll
This is my band sampler project for the round robin starting on Oct 1st. It's not a typical band sampler, but it is constructed in the same basic style. It is just smaller. I don't think any of the participants will mind a smaller project :)
I already changed the pattern and used my own monogram instead of the sampler guild monogram.
(This was actually started before I left for the weekend. )
Finish #1-Renaissance Designs Eight Candles Glowing
Finish #2-Renaissance Designs Nine Stockings Swirling
These two Christmas pieces are off to the finisher tomorrow. Now I have only 3 more pieces to stitch to complete this series. There is a 13th piece that says Merry Christmas, but I don't have it.
Please email me if you know where I might be able to find it :)
Finish #3-Dinky Dyes & The Cat's Whiskers Winter Wonderland Biscornu
I used a scrap of misc linen from my stash and some Gloriana silk overdye thread-don't know the name (something Garden, I think)
I just need to assemble this one and it is ready for the EGA retreat exchange in Nov.
Now for some new stash-
I received the pre-stitching for this Jeannette Douglas class I'm attending in October. Isn't it adorable?!
And I signed up for Patricks Woods Mr Button's Souvenir Satchel class thru Shining Needle Society. Love this one, too!
I even have a finish-finish to report! I found a frame at a garage sale for this finished piece . It was included for free because....
I bought this sewing machine too! $50 I thought it was a great deal. It is the Singer centennial edition-1851-1951. Is this considered a featherweight? No accessories or case.
It runs great, but I'm thinking about taking it out of the table and using the machine as a decoration in the house???
That's it for now. Have a great week!
