So this is another one that I stitched more than just a while ago. It is The Token by Long Dog. I stitched it on 32 count cream lugana with Carries Creations silks. I absolutely looooove her silks! I decided to make it into a pillow, guess I'm on a pillow craze right now.

Well that's it for me this week, wish I could get out of my slump, ugh.

So this is Celtic Summer by Lavender and Lace. No I did not stitch this recently, not even close, lol. I stitched it forever ago and just decided to make it into a pillow.  I added lots and lots of beads that weren't called for on this, on the right side I used beads instead of floss. I think shes very pretty, though not really my taste. I did enjoy stitching her.  The fabric is 14 count aida which I never use any more, I've become a linen and evenweave snob, lol......

So here are a couple pics of the little terror that has come to live with me, lol. In the first one Payton is 16 months. The second is a pic in December, 20 months old.  Never thought I would be doing this again at 56 but...........what the heck right:)

So I am kinda, sorta, a little out of my stitching slump, my YEAR long stitching slump.  I made some pincushions.

The first two are a portion of a Danybrod design, I don't remember the name.

The next is Brightneedles Pretty in Pink.

Next is The Trilogys Secret Flower Bed.

The last is a Shepherds Bush design called Blackberry Sampler ( I think) that I made into a pinkeep. 

My little grandson came to live with me when he was just 16 months old and trying to stitch with him in the house is proving to be challenging, lol. Hes 21 months old and into everything there is to be into. LOL.

So, I'm off for today and will hopefully post something else this weekend..........fingers crossed:)

So I have actually finished a few things, not many but its much harder to find time to stitch with Payton in the house, lol.

The first is the Holly and the Ivy from the Drawn Thread. I sewed mill hill beads around the edges, I think it really makes a nice finish.

Next is Oh Deer by Just Nan. I finished it by painting a little wooden sled white and mounting it on there. I think next time I will paint the sides of the runners with some little design, who knows.

The pincushion is Peekaboo Pincushion by Indigo Rose.

Next is Joyful Night by Shepherds Bush, I really like that design. I've stitched it several times.

The last one is Just Nans newest mouse. Its Gingerbread Angel Mouse and its pretty cute. It has little wings on its back and a little sequin halo on its head.  Very quick and fun stitch.

That's all for today, maybe I'll stitch more this week:)

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!
