Some Stitching And Some Cool Weather

 I started working on a class project that Stitchville put on by Zoom, I do not have a web cam so was only able to stitch the kit on my own, I really like this set from Erica Michaels Needleart Designs a 2020 class.

I love the threads, the thread holder was from an exchange way back in I think 2010, Joanie no more blogging, exchanged this I use it most then my other holders.

                                                The pins and thread are interesting and useful.

                                Look at the beautiful ribbon from Lady Dot Creations, so prety.

This Orts piece is done on silk canvas, I do like working on silk, not so much filling in the empty spaces.

I need to put these floss tags together and add the punch holes, I bought these from she has some lovely patterns and other items in her Etsy Shop, stop over and have a look at Lynn's items for sale, you will not be dissapointed.

I found this amazing site on Etsy, I just had to buy this amazing wooded beaded design, I am looking forward to working on it.

This is the Ukrainian Flag that came with the kit, thank-you Anton Gladkov, his site on Etsy is WonderlandUkraine, he has loads of designs and so many wonderful items in wood for sale.

Look at the cute wood thread keeper, it came with the kit and needle .

 This is the wood ornament that the beads get stitched onto.

Here is the sweet card he sent along with the kit, it was faster shipping then I expected, he said about six weeks it came in two.

So this is the little trouble maker here in the Laurent household, he was in the laundry room somehow got the laundry basket door open and took out Mikes underwear and decided to wear them, we were laughing so hard he was mad at us, what a hoot he is always into something everyday.

I Have Been Busy And A Bit Of Stitching

 We have been very busy here in the Laurent home, with illness and getting things ready for the spring and summer, I have had problems with uploading and commenting on blogs, not sure why some of you I cannot comment on at all, so sorry for that, if I have not commented on your Blog I do apologize. 

I did work on the Hands On Design from a class project that Stitchville had in 2021, it is a sweet set, I like the colors of the threads and fabric.

This is the second part of the design I finished, the flowers remind me so much of a garden I once visited.

I did finish Edward ScissorFish, i had ruined the pattern a bit so had to do a bit of my own thing with some of the beads, I will never do a project like this again, it was way too time consuming for my liking, however i do like him very much.

These are the Burse and Pall I did for a friend who is a Priest in Minnesota, he kindly sent a photo so I may show them to you, I would make these again if I had the chance they are so meaningful to my heart.

I made this bag from a kit I found in the stash relocation a few years ago at Minnesota Needlework Guild Retreat, I used it as a Easter Bag, it is felt and beads I really like how it turned out.

I also finished another small amulet i found in again the stash relocation at retreat, I will kee needles in this little bag.

Now the news, Mike has had a couple of small heart attacks related to agent orange, its so heart wrenching to see him ill, he has worked out three to four days a week since he was 13 years of age, he was on the USS Eldorado during VietNam, he drove the Marines to shore and both time came in contact with Agent Orange.

Please keep him in your Prayers please, they cannot do any kind of test until they have the dye that goes into his veins to see where the blockage is, many truckers cannot afford the gas or diesel to work now with the pipe lines down and now we are buying oil from another country its a crying shame.

The dyes are sitting on a ship in the bays waiting to be picked up, so sorry to dump this on you, I wanted you to know that I have done a bit of stitching and keeping an eye on Mike, I wake up every hour to make sure he is okay and still with us here in this amazing world.

I will post again when I have a bit of stitching done on the 2020 class project.

Gods Blessings to you all
