A Stitchy Finish, a WIP and some S.E.X.

I didn't get a new camera this weekend, but I am able to get the old one to turn on with the help of a very small screwdriver so here are a few pic's.















I designed and finished another "In Memory Of" needle roll ornament. I'm stitching seven of these and am going to change the colors and be changing the design a bit to use as Christmas gifts for my Mother and my brother's and sister. I'll also be making two for our own Christmas tree one for my father and one for DH father.















This is my WIP that I have been working on for far to long and I hope to get it finished this year. It's from the book Glorious Earth and is being stitched without the Bible verse.




















Since we went shopping on Saturday I managed to wrangle some stash shopping time at Hobby Lobby. I got some DMC Pearl Cotton #5 in Color Variations and a few solids. I picked up the two MCG Textile fabrics and a 2 1/2" pair of scissors for about 75% off retail. I also got a pack of Delica beads and a couple of linen threads on sale, and picked up another tube of Charles Craft 28ct. Monaco.

I was really disappointed with Hobby Lobby yet again since they have now shrunk the size of their Cross Stitch section, it will only fill one isle now. I really think they should change their name to Home Decor Lobby since that is what 60-70% of the store is and that is why they shrunk the cs section, needed to add more home decor down by the home decor fabrics. I think I'll get a few more of the Color Variations #5 pearl cottons that I don't have duplicates for and only go there for any good sales.

Just want to thank you all for any comments left as they do mean a lot to me and keep me stitching and designing.

  2. I love those ornaments you are making. They are really beautiful. Good work on your eagle as well. I noticed the same thing at the Hobby Lobby here in town. We used to have a LNS here but she retired. Which is a real bummer.

  8. Lovely needleroll and great idea to use as gifts to remember special people. I find the same thing at my HL. We all just have to think it cyclical and cross stitch will make a comeback in the years to come.
