I just finished stitching this little Shepherds Bush design. Its a portion of Holly and Ivy. I used a pretty opalescent lugana by Silkweavers.  I bought a large piece with the plan to stitch something large on it and then I started cutting it up. This is the last of it, sigh. 

I used HDF silks in any color I wanted. I think I'm going to make it into a hanging ornament.  I'm pretty sure. Hopefully I will get that done today.

I did take out "And a Garden Grew" this morning. I really want to start working on it again too. Like I said in an earlier post, I made this once and now I have the perfect frame for it so I'm doing it again.

This is another one that I'm just choosing colors as I go. I love Rosewood Manor designs but don't really have the patience to take out 125 skeins of floss and find the right one just to put in 2 stitches and go to another color. So that is why I just do them in the colors I want, its just faster to me and more fun.

I like the way this one is going but I have to admit that I liked the way I did the last one. I'm comparing the two but trying not to .

Something else I started this weekend, notice the word started..............

Its a rug punch sheep pillow. I didnt get much done on mine. I thought it was hard to do. Not hard, like trying to figure it out but difficult. Maybe I'm not holding it right, it kept slipping in the frame. It was just very awkward for me. I'm going to try and muddle through over the next few weeks though. I want it it my living room. Maybe I could just put the butt in there, thats what I have finished, then again, maybe it wouldnt look right:)

Thanks for visiting.


  1. Thanks Sharine. I've been stitching on And a Garden Grew all day. I think maybe I'm on a roll.
