A Lovely Surprise!

 Last week I received this lovely surprise from Marguerite Harrington, a close friend since college!  It wasn't even my birthday or anything!  We stitch together regularly, and attend both EGA and ANG meetings together as well as other stitching events. 
This piece is a freebie from the Primitive Hare, and Marguerite even tea-dyed the fabric herself.  It is such a lovely sentiment!

Thank you so very much Marguerite!

No matter how much time I spend stitching on these weekends, it is never enough!  I did not get to stitch on Friday, just a bit too busy.  Saturday, however, I stitched for 8 hours!  Sunday I only got 2 hours of stitching time.  I stitched on Hearts of America by Little House Needleworks for all of the 10 hours that I stitched.  I will show you an update on WIP Wednesday!

Exotic Places

This year at our Fox Chapter of the American Needlepoint Guild, we are doing a group project called Exotic Places.  We have a book of 20 stitches to choose from, and we are to stitch 12 of them.  I have done 5 so far, they are  (starting at the 10 o'clock position, going counter clockwise) Byzantine, Scotch Byzantine, Oriental, Moorish, and Milanese.   I don't know what I will be doing with them when they are all stitched, perhaps I will put them in a book.

...And Then There Were Two

This might look a bit familiar to you, I stitched the one on the left at our retreat in Galena last month.  I stitched the one on the right when I got home.  Ornimentification will take place at a later date.
