A little Stitching Fun and Family

Helo to you all: I hope the hurricane Irma has not done any damage to you and your city and town, my heart goes to all who were or are in her path, the news stories rip my heart apart, Blessings and thought sent your way.

I did manage to stitch a little yesterday and today, I finished the Hearts For You, a kit the lovely Kim over at http://wisdomwithneedleandthread.blogspot.com, Kim Thank-you I have never worked on cloth like this before, I like it, I am going to make a pillow for my stitching chair instead of a wall hanging.




Well its not much of a post today but will show more next time.

Be safe my friends.
Blessings

Another Contructed Piece

Hello My Dear Dear Friends: First I want you all to please I beg you to pray for the safety of the people and animals in Florida, Irma looks to be a devastating hurricane, we must not forget about Texas and Louisiana if you donate please make sure it is a reputable organization, I am giving to the Salvation Army, they do such great things for humanity.
Now I want to show you my latest finish  I did stitch this back this summer, it is a Tammy Black  Scattered Seed Samplers Design, it is called ''Tea Time'' Kettle Mat, it is 5x5 and just the right size to hold my tea cup with jasmine tea.
I am not sure why I have not posted any photos before I thought I had.


This is Blondie in the Family room waiting for the fireplace to be turned on it was cold here this morning 45 degrees, brrr

I am going to start stitching this after I stitch a project that Kim over at  http://wisdomwithneedleandthread.blogspot.com last year she sent me a lovely porcelain box and a Shepherds Bush Kit. Please stop over to her blog and see what she is doing now. Amazing simply amazing.



This is another ornament I stitched back in 2016 I think,  I like the chenille around the ornament it reminds me of snow.

 
Well its Thursday and I need to clean today, I clean the bathrooms and kitchen on Wednesdays and the rest of the house on Thursday, I plan on stitching this evening when watching Project Runway, however this may be the last year I watch they seem to think some of these designs are wonderful however I have other ideas about some of them.
 
Blessings

A Few Finish's Finally

Greetings my dear friends, I am sitting here and wondering if I should turn on the furnace, it was so cold last night I was shivering, it has been chilly here, something I do not like to do.

I have been busy doing finishing on some of my stitched items, I made a promise to not start a new stitch design until I finished four item's so here they are.

This is a Blackbird Designs Lady Liberty which I stitched early this summer, they may look a little wonky, only because I use crushed walnuts for stuffing which I love.





                                                     Next is Hats Off To Uncle Sam

 
I stitched this one this summer, I have a large collection of Pin Cushions
 
I received this next one from the stash relocation pile from the Minnesota Needlework Guild last year, I think it is a class project, not sure.
Again it is another Blackbird Designs kit, I love the color of the fabric.
I just need to iron them better.
 
 
Well I am going to start working on another kit from Scattered Seed Samplers, I do not have a photo just yet but will show you the kit photo soon.
 
I hope all our friends in Texas are finally getting back to their homes and getting their lives back, you are still in my prayers daily.
 
I hope the fires in Manitoba are out please pray for Peace and all who are suffering.
 
Blessings
Catherine
