Hello all. It's been a bit since I've posted. I thought I'd share some stitching photos with ya. While at my Dad's for Thanksgiving, I stitched this Pine Mountain pillow kit:
I had some WIPs I could have worked on while at my Dad's, but the light is not the greatest, and I usually have a Pine Mountain kit or 2 in my stitching bag, so that's what I stitched on Thanksgiving Day.
From the Society RR group, I stitched an extra 2 squares on Karen's piece.
Back in September, I stitched "J" and "R" on this piece, then sent it on its way to the next couple of stitchers. I had wanted to stitch a third, so after my buddy Ruth finished working on it, she sent it back to me and I stitched another 2 squares, "H" and "I". Now it's off again to the next stitcher. Isn't it looking great.
Now onto WIP's. After the PALS Fling in October, I started working on the pinkeep from the class I attended at the PALS Fling:
The class was taught by Jane Timmers of Fancy Work. As other blogger buddies that took this class have posted, Jane is a wonderful teacher. If you ever get a chance to take one of her classes, you should. The pinkeep is stitched over 1. I love the colors of this. There is also a biscornu, also over 1, that will get stitched after the pinkeep is finished. I was working on this the first part of November, when I could find time to stitch.
After Thanksgiving, I found myself in a mood to start something new, even though I have several WIPs and UFOs that could use my attention. So, I started JBWs "French Country A, B, C's":
The fabric is darker than it appears in this photo. The pattern and photo is blue floss stitched on a white fabric. I purchased the pattern and the blue fabric at the PALS Fling a year ago and decided to stitch it reversed, white floss on the blue fabric. Not too much of it completed yet, but I think it's going to look very cool when completed.
And last but not least, I started working on Lizzie Kate April FlipIt, from the very first FlipIt series from 2002.
Most of these were stitched last year in a round robin. There were 4 squares left to stitch when it returned to me. My buddy Ruth took it home with her after the PALS Fling in October and stitched a square. And her friend Judy surprised me by stitching another. So that leaves 2 more squares to stitch, April and May.
That's it for stitching updates. I hope to have these WIPs finished by end of the month.
Hugs to all....
