It Has Been A While

 Thank-you to all who commented on my last post, it has been very busy, I am so sorry I did not send individual thank-You's, with Mikes appointments it has been an ongoing busy trying month.

Anyhoo, I want to tell you about a new to Blogland Blogger her name is Toki you can find her at: Toki lives in Japan does jewelry making, she has some amazing rings she posted about last week, please visit her.

I have been busy trying to do some finishing, I did complete the stitching and construction on my Hares                                          Christmas, I did a flat fold, I wanted a stand up instead.

I stitched this on 26 count unknown fabric, I pick up fabric 36 count Edinburgh at stash relocation at                                                                             retreat last August 

Then I worked on some towels for Christmas presents, my sister-in-law has a chicken theme going, they were easy I bought fat quarters and already made towels sewed the fabric onto the towels, of course I made some for myself

I also worked on my felt table place mat, I really like this design I bought from Northern Lites Quilt                                               shop, I do need to add the tendrils to the pumpkin tops 

I also did some stitching on a free design from:  Brick City Cross Stitch  I did call their number it seems  they are still in business this is a Raise The Roof design, it can be shared as to the note on the bottom, if you would like one I will gladly send you one, however here in Minnesota we are very short of postal         workers and do not get mail every day or sent out every day many of my friends are now getting their                                                                          Christmas cards

                              There is a load of red in this design, it is an unknown UFO fabric 32 count

I did finish stitching my Plum Street Cow Pile, when I was stitching it I was not a big fan, now I love it                                                  to pieces I used an unknown UFO fabric 32 count

This was a free design from Donna Bayliss at By The Bay Designs, she sent it with a design I ordered which I have stitched and will construct this week, it will be another stand up for an easel, the leaf will be a scissor fob for my sewing scissors, again UFO fabric 36 count

Today the sun is shing the weather is almost 40 degrees for Minnesota that is a warm January in this neck of the woods, I am going to take the dogs (one at a time) for a walk, if I do both they get tangled and almost pull me down, I need to get out and not just to push snow or go shopping, however I do like                                                           to go to Mass daily and on Sundays
I hope to visit many of you this week and comment, I hope to see lots of stitching and hear how things                                                                           are going for you all
