My very Late IHSW post

I did get to stitch almost the whole IHSW week-end minus fixing meals and going to church.
I stitched a small perferated paper Santa from the Heirloom Santas series, Von Claus no.P923 I just need to cut him out  put him together and add the hanging ribbon, this has been in my stash for a very long time, I told my wonderful Husband I was going to stitch from my stash before adding anymore goodies to my basket. ( I am weak so wish me luck)
Next I stitched a small from The Drawn Thread, started long ago only had a few stitches on it I just found it in my stash basket,  I want to put this on a small box to carry my needles and other stitching things, this is the Simpler Sampler, I did change the colors a little I wanted a darker house so I used leftover threads to stitch this little lovely. 
 Now why did my letters start to slant?
I want to show you my stitching chair for the IHSW.
This was the perfect spot for me, on my front porch, it was a very nice day with temps in the 80s with a great breeze that kept me cool even when the sun shone on me.
 
 
I love stitching on this chair it is so comfortable.
 
I did start working again on one of my class projects from the Stitchville Spring Fling Jeannette Douglas, I am ashamed to say I did not finish this beautiful piece, I came home from Retreat in 2011 and put this lovely project in my stash basket of unfinished projects and now am working on it, shame on me. This is the Three Pines  Sampler it is much prettier in person, with lots of different stitches, I hope to have this finished by the 4th of july, wish me luck.
 
Yuuuummy looking, I have been having fruit yogurt smoothies, just about every morning. I have a great patch of june bearers and ever bearers, I plan on making jam soon, after I get enough, the price at the fruit stands and the grocery store are way to high so I will use my own berries, the veggie garden is looking so good but that is a picture for my next post.
So sorry about the late IHSW


Happy stitching and many Blessings to you.
Catherine

love that Santa! I collect those Sandy Cozzolino Santas but that's one I don't have. If you are willing, I'd love to buy or trade for it. The dude is on his second batch of jam; we got seconds from the local farm. Not pretty but yummy.

Oh I love that Heirloom Santa Catherine. I have never stitched on paper before - I really must give it a go.
