January Stitching Finishes

Hello Dear Friends & Followers; 
I hope everyone is staying warm and safe in the harsh winter weather. We missed the Polar Vortex in southern Montana, but next week we're due to get some very cold weather so I'll make sure the wood box is stocked and make lost of warm drinks and comfort foods.

I did a bit of stitching and finishing this month and here are the results:

 Two more "Wintry Snowflakes" magnets.
Stitched on 14 count white plastic canvas using DMC white, DMC silver metallic, and my own hand dyed "Blue Spruce". They are backed with black felt and have a button magnet on the back.

Two "Harvest Pumpkins" magnets.
Stitched on 14 count white plastic canvas using DMC threads both solid and variegated. Backed with black felt and a button magnet on the back.

That's all on the stitchin' I've done this month, but have been designing many more charts to stitch during the year and maybe a few to share as well.

So until next post.....

Take Care, Stay Warm
& Happy Stitchin'
Hugs, Sandy

A Valentine Small

Hey There Everyone, It's been cold here in Montana and we got a foot of that beautiful fluffy white crap early in the week that is turning into brown slush all over town. Luckily the highways that the hubs has to drive 5 days a week are clear.

Well, it's almost February so I thought I would post a Valentine gift for all my stitchin' friends and followers. It should be a fairly quick stitch using a favorite color, a variegated thread, or even with the threads I chose.

I added a small alphabet and numbers if you want to personalize it where the solid lines are.


I designed it with Dusty Rose colors using DMC 
150 - solid black circle, 
3350 - + (plus symbol),
 3731 - clear heart,
 3733 - x,
 151 - small black dot
(do not stitch the solid lines)

"Valentine's Heart"
41w x 40h
Hope you enjoy the chart.

Take Care & Happy Stitchin'
Hugs, Sandy

January 2019 Totally Useless Stitch-A-Long

It's back, the Totally Useless Stitch-A-Long (TUSAL) for 2019 if you want to know what it's all about and even join in you can click the link.

 

Here are my first ORTS for 2019.
Ended up with a new jar when I couldn't find my jar from last year in the carnage that is my craft room. 

Not a whole lot of bits and pieces, but I've only been stitching my little snowflakes. They are just blues, white, silver, and iridescent.

Took a picture this afternoon of all of my 2018 ort's and then what I have collected over the years. That's a whole lot of uselessness.

I'll do a post next on all of the pieces I stitched in 2018, I just need to get them all together and take pictures. I'll have a few I never got around to posting about.

Take Care & Happy Stitchin'
Hugs, Sandy
