Lots of Pictures to Share!


This is my small start on La D Da's "Peaceful Ways." The fabric is so pretty and fine, but I've forgotten what it is. I think it is a 36 count by R&R and I am using GAST threads Cinnamon, Walnut, Tarnished Gold, and Dried Thyme.




Two loveable Santas for the PS Wreath SAL.


Michele B. (Striped Rose) sent me her pretty squares for the Fair Square exchange Round 2. I am envisioning a pretty pinkeep! Thanks, Michele I do love them.

Sweet stitched piece received from Shelleen for the USEBB For the Birds Exchange. She had laced it to some matboard and framed it ... I hope she won't mind, as I'm on a bit of a pinkeep kick lately and I plan to re-finish as a pinkeep with some of the pretty fabric she sent along. Thanks Shelleen for the lovely stitching and extra goodies you sent.



These are my squares to Michele. I know she likes Little House Needleworks so I stitched motifs from "Morning Berries" using Crescent Colors threads on 32 ct. Natural Light. I do hope you like these, Michele.

We had a lovely trip to Yale; if my pictures turned out, I will share those next. Mike and I slept in this morning and made a yummy sausage and egg scramble with fresh french press coffee. I hope to work on some finishing and other home projects and then we have a birthday party to attend this evening. Happy Saturday!

Your squares are lovely, but I wondered what the color and count of R&R are you using for the La Da square?
