TUSAL Report

Here is my TUSAL posting I was out of town on a week-long getaway with my husband so sorry I am late. I did do a lot of stitching on our getaway.

I have two finishes

I finally finished my Birds Of A Feather by With Thy Needle and Thread I love this pattern the picture does not do it justice, my other finish was Drawn Threads Friends done on 28 count fabric using DMC threads.

I am working on Just Nan Filagree Fancies Pancy Basket using 28 count fabric and DMC threads.
These three are all part of my Up For A Challenge 15, I am doing better this year then I did last year with my finishes.
Blessings to you all.

What I am doing

Today is very nice out wheather wise, the temp. now is 39 degrees, warm for Minnesota this time of year, I am all for it no snow on the ground and walking outside is wonderful.
I have lots to share I have bought lots of unfinished projects from past stash auctions at the retreats that Cindy and Marsha put on twice a year feb, and oct.
The sweatshirt is a ski scene done with waste canvas, the pattern is from Leisure Arts, I hope to finish this soon.
Next is a White Goose  from Designs From Gloria and Pat I love this goose I am going to use braided trim and large tassels for a wall hanging, I donot usually work on 14 count this was done on 14 and came out just lovely the picture does not show how really nice this is.
Next is a pattern called Romeo and Chicks I also bidded on this project and won at the oct. 2011 retreat, I love this pattern it is so lovely the colors are striking again this is done on 14 count, I am loving this project, I bounce between the Mystery Sampler I am working on and this one, I take this one to work with me the Mystery Sampler I need my floor magnifier for.

My next picture is of a Bunny I donot know who the artist is I only know I finished it in Dec. I did also bid on this project in oct. 2011 it was partial finish.
I have added a small pompom on the tail it is only right that a bunny has a puffy tail, this will be a small pillow for Easter. I

Next are the small stockings I finished on Newyears Eve these will go on my small white tree in our home office next year.

These are from the  the Cross Stitch and Country Crafts magazine  issue nov/dec 1993.
I do keep all my old magazines, I refer back to them often, I guess that I am a hoarder!
only of stitching stash.
I really should get back to stitching I hope this post finds you all well.
