Soooo, here it is, September and I haven't been stitching at all.  My 17 month old grandson Payton has come to live with me and as much as I would like to blame it on him, I just cant.  I have started to work on LHN Warm Winter Woolens and I'm hoping I can get back in the stitching groove. I missed stitching for quite a while but feel like I'm just used to not doing it now.  My friend Wendy bought me the new Just Nan, Miss Witchy Mouse and I really want to get started on it too. 

I am going to try and post a couple times a week at least, I've been having problems with blogger and that is making even posting kind of difficult but I'm still going to try and my goal is to have a pic of "SOMETHING" stitched by Monday morning.  Wish me luck:)

So, I'm in a stitching slump, if you couldn't tell. I just want to pull my hair out. I start and start and start and stop and stop and stop.


Hoping to get my "stuff" together soon and start stitching and not just starting. Truth is I miss it so much when this happens. I miss having something that occupies my mind and hands. Something good anyway, lol. See you soon, I hope!

This is Bluebird Quaker by Willow Hill Samplings. I stitched it on 32 count lambswool linen this week and I loved stitching it. This is the largest thing I've ever stitched on linen. I've never stitched anything over the size of an ornament.

I changed the colors on it because I was making it for my friend Wendy for Christmas. 



I think I may stitch something for me know, not sure what though, leaning towards Shepherds Bush, lol. Thanks for visiting:))))

So I just got Just Nans new design called Cardinal Tweet in the mail today. It was gifted to me by Pam from the 123 message board. I whipped it up today. Its a very cute and very fast stitch, you cant beat either of those things in my book, lol.



Ok, so the other things that I stitched this week, hmmm what to mention first. Ok, I stitched a couple more of the Imblum angels. One in yellow and the other in lavenders.




A couple from Country Cottage Needleworks. The first is Snow Birds from the JCS Christmas Ornaments book and the second is a portion of Reindeer Games.




The next on is from Little House Needleworks and its called Gingerbread Cookie.





The next two are from The Drawn Thread. First is First Snow and the second one is called Snow.




Last but not least is a little design from a Stoney Creek Magazine.

 
 
                Wow, I stitched a bunch again this week, lol. I'm guessing I will soon hit a wall and barely be able to stitch for weeks. See ya!!

So I've stitched and finished a bunch more this week but I really like these two. I took Just Nans Merry Fifteen biscornu pattern and used the little gingerbread people parts to make a couple ornaments.





I added lots of Kreinik braid and tons of Mill Hill beads and I think they turned out pretty darn cute:) 

That's it for tonight, I'm kinda tired, lol. Tomorrow I'll post the other ornaments I finished. See you then!

I finished these up last night and now I can spend the week stiching again, lol.

This is another Just Nan, its called Eliza and Emmas Christmas Hat ( I think). I left off the hat part and just made the little tree with tree skirt. Its ok I guess. I'm not overly fond of it.




Next another Just Nan Gingerbread Mouse



Brightneedle Pretty in Pink made into a pinkeep



A Danybrod Design I made into a pinkeep, I don't remember the name



Poor Robin by Shepherds Bush



Christmas Rose by Just Nan

That's it for now. See you this weekend maybe. Thanks for viewing my blog:))))
