Happy New Year !!!

(an October sunrise from our front porch)

Well, it's almost time to say goodbye to 2009 and to ring in a brand new year.

I just want to wish all of my friends & family a
Very Happy New Year !!

May 2010 be a year filled with love, laughter, joy and prosperity for you and your family.

May 2010 be filled with lots of stitches and stash for all of you fiber fondling addicts out there ; )
May the frog's never dance on your fabrics or get tangled up in your floss.


Take Care & Happy Stitching

The Last Finish of 2009

This was my Santa Themed mantle this year.
We are the proud owners of eight Santa's and two Angel's (so far), and since we never managed to bring our tree up from the basement this year, I went with a large pine wreath and a few cross stitched ornaments.

This is my last finish of 2009. I finished it on Christmas Eve.
Design: Merry Christmas (12-24-2009)
Designer: Sandy in Montana
Stitched on 28ct. Carolina Linen in Sand from Charles Craft using DMC threads, Mill Hill beads and two snowflakes from Jesse James Company.

Baby It's Cold Outside & A Finish

"Baby It's Cold Outside" the old song goes and it's so true for today.
The temp reads somewhere around +2 so it's a wood stove heating day and there's snow all around. Yes, I'm not very fond of winter, but it's what life in Montana brings.
I tried my hand at crackle painting and distressing the wood box I bought at Michael's the other weekend and I liked it for the most part, so I designed an Autumn themed/colored insert for the top. I'm thinking of designing some stitching smalls to match the box, maybe a needle case, scissor fob and small biscornu.


Design: "Autumn Hardanger" with distressed box
Designer: Sandy In Montana
Stitched on 32ct. linen hand-dyed by me using Wildflowers in Raspberry Sherbet and DMC threads, Mill Hill petite beads in Ginger and Jesse James Co. buttons for the box corners. The Hardanger is lined with dark green satin.

Take Care & Happy Stitching Everyone
