Stitching and Such

I've had a few days off work, and it was time for some clearing and organizing. I'm still in the midst of all that, but thought I'd share (see why I'm still in the midst?) my grandpuppy, Kilo, with you. Her dad, my DS, has been working out of town for the last three weeks, so she stays with Pixie and me during the week. He finished early and got home on Thursday this week, but will be going to another location next week. She's just relaxing on the couch here, showing her dainty little paws (not). Then she was just about ready to have the photo shoot over - nap time!

This is some of what I've been up to the last little while on the stitching front. I'm attempting to catch up to the ASAW stitch along over at the Friendly Stitchers' Group on Yahoo. They're about 20x20, but they do have some detail, so it may take longer than I thought, but they are fun to work on! I'm not quite finished with the Robin or the Cottage, but here they are...

We also had a Floss Tag Swap, and this was my first. In hindsight, I probably should have kept this one and made another for Rebecca, but was so excited to get it out to her. I also made my first Humbug, and sent it along to her as well. It was such and afterthought that they don't match, but they won't necessarily be used together... Along with the floss tag we were to send floss, so I got a few pink shades of overdyed GAST (Gentle Arts Sampler Threads) and a silk HDF from Vikki Clayton. I hope she like them!

Thanks for dropping by -- come back soon!



  1. I think you did a great job! I still dithering over making the darn hole, just not brave enough!

  2. I love what you've done with the ASAW sal centre, very pretty! Have fun catching up with the rest of the designs. :-)
    Well done on the floss-tag and humbug finishes, too!

  3. Poor Pixie -- to have such a giant house guest (LOL). Hope you enjoyed your time off and didn't spend all your time doing non-stitching stuff.


Thank You for sharing your advice, comments, and remarks with me! I love hearing what you have to say! Please come back again soon...
