Sampler Fin-ee!

I finished it!  All those eyelets!  and 4-sided stitches......and regular cross stitches too! 

This is actually a stitch-a-long project at our EGA guild, and it needs to be done by October, so I am ahead of the game.  It is a free chart from Blackbird Designs, and I chose to do it in a variegated floss instead of lots of different colors

Needle Case Finish

Fox Emerald Patch Needle Case by Handblessings Designs.  I finished this one up and attached it to the metal needle case box, and Voila! 

This was fun to stitch, I love doing these specialty stitches on canvas.

A Fall Heart Finish

I finished the Fall Heart by Sekas and Co.  rather quickly.  It was hard to put down!  I will be teaching a class for this project in August, so I wanted to get it finished!  It was a very quick and enjoyable stitch.  I have lots of these hearts in my 'to-do' mountain, and I will be stitching another one very soon!

A Scissor Fob Finish

Now that the recipient has received it, I can show all of my blogging buddies!  This is the scissor fob I stitched and finished just a little while ago.  It was gifted to Marguerite for her birthday along with the shamrock scissors. 

Happy Birthday Marguerite!

Stitch Maynia, Day 15

On day 15 I started Fox Emerald Patch by Handblessings Designs.  It is stitching up very quickly, and I did enjoy my time stitching it so far.  This was designed for the Fox ANG guild 35th Anniversary Luncheon.  I was not able to attend the luncheon but was gifted with a kit by Marguerite.  Her mother attended the luncheon with her, but does not stitch, so I got that kit!

Stitch Maynia Day 14

On Day 14 I started the Sekas and Co.  Fall Heart.  It was hard putting it down at the end of the day, I wanted to keep on stitching!
