A Finish, A New Start and PIF


Little House Needleworks
All Dolled Up! Pear Tree ornament
28 count mushroom evenweave

I finally finish Little House Needleworks Pear Tree. I did not add the beads because they are on order. One of the threads I have on order is on backorder and the rest of the order is being held. I just might add the beads just before I finish it off into an ornament. I have He's a Flake kitted up and ready to go. I will be starting that later in the week.

Lizzie Kate ABC Lessons
Lemon Yellow 28 count evenweave

My new start is Lizzie Kate ABC Lessons. This pattern is just calling for me. A friend send me the chart when she was done stitching it and it was waiting for me when I got back from Texas. I was looking some material for the pattern but I wasnt happy what I was looking for. On a whimp, I dyed some material into a Lemon Yellow. I love the brightness of it. When I put the thread colors against the dyed fabric, the colors just popped. I didnt get too far into it but it is a good start.


I got a PIF (Pay It Forward) package from my friend Sarah in the UK. She send me a piece of material and 4 threads skeiens from Vicky Clayton silks. While I visiting Kathy B in Texas, she gave me Cat Whisker's Peacock Chair. This material and threads will go perfect with the Peacock Chair. Now to find some time. Isnt that what we stitchers are always fighting against time? I have post a PIF offer right after this post, so if you are interest in the PIF, please a comment in the next post. Thank you.

Happy Stitching!
