I am finally stitching the “Silent Night” church from Stoney Creek!
When Laura and I got together at the Needleart Extravaganza, we chose two projects/steps to attempt to finish in February. Here are mine! The bracelet is packaged and ready for giving, and the gazebo is stitched!
I bought this bracelet at Sisters, my friend Gail’s accessory shop. I love it, so I decided to re-create it in another color: I found the hammered silver toggle at Michaels and decided to use white, silver and crystal for my remake:
Not bad, if I say so myself!
Look what just got uploaded to the Cross-stitch Club! So pretty, and perfect for a snowy night like tonight!
My daughter gave me these glass grapes from her old kitchen. I love, love, love the colors and need to carry them to bead shops with me!
So are the “moonlit paths” in front of the gazebo. I stitched them with one strand of light blue and one strand of irridescent white.
I got this book from BOMC2 back before Christmas. I had to hide it from myself. It is chock full of photos of gorgeous goodies that will rot your teeth just to look at them!
Wind snow dancing outside the window, Sandra Lee Chocolate on the TV, soup in the crockpot, laundry in the dryer, needlework in my lap (for a few minutes!) Life is good!
That’s mine and PJ’s made up word for crazy! And that is what I’ve gone! I am obsessed with finding old cross-stitch patterns I’ve always wanted to stitch, but never had the time.
This is my latest purchase, “At Home with Paula Vaughan, Book Sixty-Eight.”
I have loved her work for years, and you can see, in a recent post
, one of her earlier designs I purchased on eBay.
This book was in a rack, along with about 100 others, in the back corner of Michaels on Park Road in Charlotte, NC. I spotted it several months ago, when I
was looking for yarn.
I went back yesterday and hunted through two racks
before I found it!
It has 29 projects that are all gorgeous, but this one is the one I wanted:
This looks just like my wedding dress from 1984 (Jessica McClintock, remember?) and the sewing machine looks like my granny’s!
