April 23, 2012

April has brought a new start.. Ann Medd.. was waiting for my stitching buddy to start this one but.....I just had to start..First stitch was taken on Easter Sunday and this is the progress as of 4/22/12

  I am totally enjoying working on her and so far really love the colors.. I have off from work this week so I really hope to get alot finished... Ann is no small project so I will be working on her for quite some time.  this is what she will look like finished.

My greatest news this week is my DH is redoing our sunporch for me.. Oh Happy Day... when finished it will be my stitching room.. I am so excited.. I can finally have a place to stitch AND a room to organize all of my lights have been installed, insulation is in place.. tomorrow the ceiling goes in and then the walls.... will also put in a new floor... can't wait till it is finished..

Time to catch up!!

Oh WOW.. once again I have been such a terrible blogger... didn't realize it has been so long... so lets try and catch up.. since the last time I was here.... I finished Gesche Heitman... she is ready to go to the framers

Have started and finished quite a bit on Victorine Delacroix... she is alot of fun but geez there is a whole lot of over 1 in this piece...but here is my progress to date. actually have a bit more finished than the photo shows.  This is my own conversion using HDF on 40 ct Maritime white

 And finally my finish of today... Rachel Hyde 
stitched on 40 ct Peddlers Moon with HDF and again this is my own conversion
Rachel was a fun stitch and would you believe my first finish of 2012.

Now I should be up to date with all the stitching I have done... As soon as  my stitching buddy finishes Rachel,  we will be starting Ann Medd.. I have all my supplies gathered and ready to start.  Will use 40 ct Ricamo and of course HDF.  I am excited to start.  Ann sure will be one giant project but as you can see the bigger the better.. I love large projects

Hope everyone has a happy stitching week
