Some Stitching & Good News

 Thank-you to all for your lovely comments and concerns for Michael, it warms my heart to have so many friends who really care.

Hi surgery date has been reset for December 5thPrayers are really needed the blockage is very near the brain.

I have been stitching a bit, I worked on Sue Hillis design and finished stitching all the parts, Sue does an amazing job with her display on how to finish a design, I am excited to get it all constructed, I need to finish adding the buttons.

I also did a couple of constructions, one is from Scattered Seed Samplers designs I stitched this one back in 2020, it is from The Seeds Of Kindness four-part series, it was a club four times a year, the design can be bought on Esty site, it was supposed to be a mat, but I wanted a barrel to add to my barrel collection which is a small one for now.

I am going to start a new design, I hope to have it finished before next Monday, it's a smaller design and not much stitching, I just love this Santa and reindeer, Its a By The bay Design 

I bought the new Book Of Days from Stitchville USA  952-474-1700 I order over the phone which gets me the things I need faster plus Deb uses different distributing site like Hoffmans.

I really need to keep better track of what I stitch and when

I ordered a four time a year club from Just Another Button Company, the first one is adorable, I hope to have it finished before Christmas

I also ordered a Christmas design from Kanakis https://kanikis.com they do not have much on their web site, I did find this adorable Church design, it is a PDF

I hope you all enjoyed todays post have a beautiful Thanksgiving for those who celebrate it 🍗

Some Stitching Some Finishing

It has been very busy here in the Laurent household, we cleared all the gardens of ornaments the bird feeders are full the winterizing is done on the lawn mower and power tools for outside.


I stitched this Virgin Mary and Jesus for a Christmas gift for a friend, the fabric is very sparkly, so I thought the frame worked well

This is the ORT jar from the Erica Michaels 1787 Sampler Smalls Class I took, I just need to construct the rest of the pieces

I have been doing a bit of stitching, I am working on a Sue Hillis A Study In Blue, I am using up all my WDW threads left over from other projects, it is working out well so far

I really like this design and in my stash, I have the right sized box for finishing, I hope to have all the stitching done by this Friday

I also finished constructing the Chessie and Me design from a few years ago

I finally found a frame for the Last Ripe Berries from Blackbird Designs Loose Feathers Series #9
I have some of the patterns but not all, this one I found in the stash relocation pile at retreat a couple of years ago, all the designs so far are in different frames which I prefer

These are a few of the designs I kitted up for 2023, I will be kitting up more soon, we will see how many I get done

This one is from Wonderland Ukraine on Etsy

This is another I got out of the stash relocation pile at retreat

Plum Street designs are so sweet

This is a design from Tiger Lily from Floss Tube, she has a boat load of energy and some really cute designs, I am hoping she does a Mrs. Santa, so sorry about the horrible photo, for some reason it is not showing up good

This is a design I received from my Friend Chris, for an Ort jar

This next one is from Marie she needed to unload some of her stash for free

This was a freebie from By The Bay, Donna has some wonderful designs to choose from, she also has many felt designs to choose from

Another Plum Street Sampler design 

Well, it's snowing again, and we have almost a 8 inches of snow
Mike's surgery was cancelled due to him having the flu, sadly he has to wait again, the carotid is blocked 95% I hope he can hang on till the surgery and have no strokes or other health problems, please say a few Prayers for him
Have a wonderful Thanksgiving
