As my fingers itch to stitch, my professors hand out the work. Sigh..... I mean really they think nothing about saying I'll take a 15 page paper next week, on five journal articles, your choice on these education topics. Okay okay I know, I'll learn great things! lol However it's seriously cutting into my time. Okay and I admit I seem to waste time online (GASP!) looking at blogs and websites and pictures, and well the list goes on!
I really wanted to try to figure out this blog a bit more, however that seems to be at the bottom of the list, however whenever I attempt to put a picture in my blog it always ends up at the top of the post? Why? then I have to copy and paste the strand of html for my picture and paste it where it should be. I use the little add photo icon up at the top here.
Anyways onto my stitching news!
I went to my LNS, I went years ago once with a friend when I attempted to start stitching again, but ended up being very fustrated with linen and never finished. I have no clue where that project went... it was really pretty. Paula Vaughn with a little girl and her mom in a sewing room I think it was. Anyways, I still have yet to finish Lacey, backstitching just doesnt seem to be much fun, and I do not have the money nor the supplies (okay I really do not know what to buy to frame it myself, I wander around Michaels, not knowing what to buy to frame it myself, but anyways................. I must stay on topic!
Here is what I bought:
3 pieces of fabric to go with the charts I bought, I know at least one was cashel, but I havent a clue which now. They are all 28 count though and I did start on the 100% Boy one by Lizzie Kate, its going slow, but I am getting it! My eyes really should be a little stronger or maybe my glasses are not working (giggle!).
I also got "The Teacher" not sure how this picture will come out, so I googled it and am posting the picture here. It's by Butternut Road. Mill Hill Beads Pansy pattern, I have the one wreath I'm doing and I love it, so I'm braving the beads again! Another Lizzie Kate (I like her!) Teachers plant seeds of knowledge that will grow forever Okay I admit since I'm going to be a teacher, I love love teacher designs, though this one is for one of my favorite professors/teacher.
So I got all that for the very low price of $52. Or all this! :)
Here is my progress on my first linen project (I can say first right since I intend not to give up can't I? I did do about 20 stitches on the Paula Vaughn one years ago though! But I think it qualifies to say its my first! :)
Here is my slow progress of Sleepy Spring my HAED, which by the way they are having a huge sale right now and theres several I really really want! However, I know I have enough and my money for stitching should be put to fabric (lots of smalls I want to do and learn to finish!) and floss. Oh by the way I bought some floss from Meari comign to me, lets see if I can put her blog link in correctly! :) Shop here from her stash!
well I can't figure out to make it pretty with only her name (and I did hit the icon for the hyperlink) hmmm.... anyways take a peak! I can't wait to get more floss as I build my floss collection! :)
Here is Sleepy Spring:
Uggg that photo thing!
On to my wreath the bead one! I even took a picture of the back. I really attempted to do a good job on the back, because it can be a pin, however sigh.... I could never give it away as a pin. But I still love it, still have enjoyed stitching on it! I havent started the beads yet (the pattern says to do all cross stitching, but soon I say, soon!
Well that is it for my stitching news! Thanks for looking! Back to those books!
