I forgot


I forgot to show you the cutest little pouch I got from a friend at retreat. In addition she gave us each the cutest little pattern with a button I had ever seen.  Isn't it sweet?


Finally a picture of the biscornu I stitched for a friend's birthday. It took me way longer than I thought it would and I was way too late with it. I had given her the rest of her birthday surprises  but this just took me forever to get finished. Now that she has gotten it I can post a picture. The design is Pansy Biscornu by Cedar Hill.


I made some progress over the weekend on Sail Away. I got the waves put back in and the small part of the hill completed and two trees. I still have the bigger part of the hill and 3 more rows after this so I am closer to be done but not really that close. I am excited because I think if I get a couple of more weekends with it I will be done.  I have so many WIP to choose from and bunches that have not been started that I would love to begin.  I have already been looking at the WIP list to see what I will concentrate on next. I will work on FAS and then something smaller off of the list after I finish CHS Alphabets sampler.  I will continue for a while only using new starts as gifts for my friends. I have a great desire to get more finishes from my WIP list. I may pull out a canvas piece as a change of pace. I only have two starts on canvas. One is a bargello pillow from an older issue of New Stitches and the other is a piece by Nancy's Needle named Two Cabins that I will finish for a friend.  I haven't worked on canvas in a while. I enjoy it as a change from cross stitch on occasion. I am attracted to the quilt patterns that Nancy's Needle uses on her canvas designs.  This small design is not a quilt pattern but cute none the less. I would love to get the bargello pillow done as well. Let's face it, I would really like to get everything on the list done plus all the things I have purchased to work on as well. Oh well, if I live to be really old and keep my eyesight. Hope you have time in your day for stitching. Marjo

  2. What a cute biscornu. I've never stitched one before. Do you do your own finishing? You have a great WIP list!

  5. Great progress on Sail Away! This was about the point that I realized I had skipped a thread on the grass section, and ended up doing all of the fill in over one to hide it! (Bad memory!)
    I love the little gifts you got at your retreat, and your biscornu is lovely! What a present to receive!
    Hugs.

  7. Great gift and love the pansy biscornu - my mom loves pansies and I'm always on the lookout for cute patterns with them. I recently got out my FAS too but it is daunting, I am not even one-third done yet. Maybe seeing yours will inspire me!
