Works in Progress

I went up to Amy's for a day of stitching and chatting yesterday. It was so nice to get away! I worked on Christmas Garden while I was there.

Earlier in the week I worked on Elizabeth Mears.

And last, but not least, I got a little bit of stash while at Amys. I couldn't resist getting another fat 1/4 of the pretty dye-lot of Vintage Lt. Examplar that I'm using for Christmas Garden.

I can't wait to stitch this sweet little Adam & Eve design by Little House...

Well, next week is going to be very busy. The kids have field trips, egg hunts and dentist appointments. We are also going to be heading down to Florida on Thursday for spring break. We'll be down there for over a week, so I'll post when I can. I hope you all have a wonderful Easter with your families and friends.

  7. Your Christmas Garden is looking so pretty! Nice stash too. I'm too mad at LHN for splitting up the A&E from the rest of the design and not reproducting the whole thing as is to want to touch that one. lol! Have a great Easter!

  21. Good Afternoon, Nicole...I have a quick question...for Christmas Garden are you creating a full x stitch with the week dye works threads? I love the look of yours, but when I do this...I can never really tell the difference on my work. Thanks for your advice...

  26. I love your blog. I have been debating doing the BB Design Anniversary Sampler. I have some questions for you. How did you decide on 40 ct. over 30 ct.? I am concerned with the effect of going from 2 threads to 1. I love the look of 40 ct. but when I did the old BB Design "Autumn Bouquet" I wasn't so sure it was as vibrant with only 1 thread. From the photos I really? You have stitched so many beautiful pieces. Nancy in WI
