For some reason, I've been tearing though my stash. I've been trying to finish pieces I've started and only start new ones that are already kitted. 

This summer, my sister is going through my fibers and recording each one on an excel spreadsheet. I'm hoping to avoid spending money on threads I already have. Especially when I only need a bit. 

These are my finishes so far. 

This is a Chrismon for Camp Allen with my initials and year on the back. I'm excited to have turned this in ( and about 9 other pieces) during the Chaparral finishing sale!  

I also finished the sampler which is off to the framers.

Very wonderful needlepoint gifts

Over the past month, I've been so lucky to have received some needlepoint related gifts from two great stitchy friends. I wanted to show them off because they are so neat!

A cool double sided frame weight with one end that hangs over the canvas and on the table. It's made of suede and so soft!

And a wonderful (and strong) magnet. I love the suit jacket!  So beautiful and elegant just like my stitching friend!  

I have to throw in a picture of Molly!

Over a month???

I can't believe it's been over a month since I last posted! I've been working away although not quite as much as I would like. 

The week before Memorial Day I went to Camp Allen with my stitching friends and had a ball!  I love Camp- never thought I would say that!  

This is what I worked on:

It now looks like this!

Woo hoo!  Finished!!

A few more pretty terrible pics of a great canvas:  love the ribbon work, the flair carrots, and the beaded snowflakes. The bunny is felted with roving wool. ( thank you Karen Lea!)
