Sweet Watermelon Finish

Finished stitching this one up last night.  It is Sweet Watermelon by Rocking Horse Designs.  It came with the frame.  I have just set the frame on top of it, I still need to do the actual framing.  Can't do that until I go get some foam core to cut down.

Another WIP finished!  only 10 more to go now.....

Part 3 is finished

Even though our EGA Chapter isn't meeting now due to the Covid-19 outbreak, we were sent the next installment of the chart electronically, and I got it all stitched up right away!   Here it is and below is the entire piece to date!

WIP Wednesday 3-18-2020

It's Wednesday again, and time to show you what I am stitching today.

I had started Country Cottage Needleworks' Snow Sampler last May, but I was not happy with it.  I restarted it last weekend on different fabric, and you can see that the white floss is much more visible.  I am much happier with the way it looks, so I will continue on and take out the stitches on the paler fabric.  I am sure I can find something else to stitch on this fabric someday.

Late Night Finish

Just finished It's Fall Friends from the Bent Creek Photobooth Series.  

This series is really fun!  I have three more in the series to stitch and then comes the task of framing them all!

This evening, at our ANG Chapter meeting, we ornamentified an ornament!  The technique we did was different from the way I had learned, but it works, and it is good to know more than one way to ornamentify and ornament!

WIP Wednesday 3-4-2020

This is my current WIP.  This is It's Fall Friends from the Photobooth series by Bent Creek.

It was started last May, and I had so much else going on, I didn't get back to it to finish like I had planned.

I picked it up again this past weekend, and have made good progress.  Hope to have it finished soon.
