Uber Late TUSAL and IHSW

Hello everyone!!

A big warm welcome to my new followers! Thank you for joining my blog!!

I have finished my first reports last week and so happy that they are done!! I may have a few little things to fix/edit tomorrow but that's it! Now it's the homestretch to the holidays!

I would like to send out big hugs and a BIG THANK YOU to all of you who commented on my completion of Jane Philpott. I truly appreciate all of your comments and still have many to reply to!! I hope to get at them today after this post.  I also want to visit blogs too but just opened up the reader and....GASP it's at 1000 + posts!! I hope to conquer some of those posts today!!


Here's my uber late TUSAL pic.


As for IHSW, well, that was report weekend, so I didn't stitch a lot.  I did promise Joyce a Chatelaine SAL and I managed to get just a few stitches in.  Very abysmal progress.  Dear Joyce stitched a whole butterfly! Way to go girlie!!


I also stitched a bit on Tea Bath Fairy. The filling in of the tea cup is taking awhile!!


This weekend, I stitched up two ornies and will be finishing them hopefully next weekend.

Noel by 123citriouille stitched with Victorian Motto's Nan's Red
Prairie Schooler's Partridge in a Pear Tree
Stitched on 28 ct lugana with DMC threads
I loved stitching both designs, especially the Partridge one.  I will try to finish it as a triangle ornament.  Hopefully that will work out.

As for Christmas cards, I have a couple of people I will be sending out cards to in the next little while.  If anyone else wants to exchange Christmas cards with me let me know! I love getting cards in the mail other than bills!!!  Just email me and send me your address!!

Also, I have some pieces of Aida that I will never use.  If anyone would like them, leave a comment saying so and I will do a mini draw and mail it out before Christmas.  I'll give it a week, or until I do my next post.  Here's the cream and red aida cloth with Titus. And no, he isn't being given away!!



Titus giving you all a fond farewell!!

Hugs to you all!!!

Anne

Those big WIP's can seem to go so slow. But a lot of good progress there. Nice to alternate with little ornaments too so you get that sense of accomplishment!

Looks like Titus may want to enter the giveaway!

Ooo, look at those lovely ornaments! Especially love the Christmas Pear Tree Partridge! And those equally lovely teeth on Titus, eek! Lucky he's so adorable! :D

Count me in for the Aida - I could totally use the red for mysterious projects!

Tiki said...

Love your progress and your finishes. Those will make great ornaments. I would like to enter your aida draw. That's what I use most of the time, so I always like to have some around. I would love to exchange Christmas cards with you! I'll send you an email with my address.

Titus always makes me smile. Chatelaine designs are amazing - they have so much detail in them.

Your stitching looks great. :)

I was so disappointed Titus would not be included in the drawing! Giggle, I think you made great progress for IHSW, you finished two ornies! I love your chatelaine progress, so delicate.

Gorgeous ornaments! I really like the partridge in a pear tree, that's so cute :D

Great progress Anne. Congrats on finishing the ornaments. Both are really cute. I would love to be entered in your giveaway for the aida fabric. That is all I stitch on. You can send Titus along for a visit. lol

Nice progress on your WIPs! I love your ornaments. The PS is much prettier than the chart pic suggests, I'm definitely going to have to stitch it! I'm a sucker for PS ornaments.

Is Titus tired of you stitching and waiting for you to play with him?!

I'll have to admit, I'm just fascinated by your Tea Bath Fairy WIP, Anne--love all those teeny-tiny stitches! And your ornament finishes are both lovely, too! I've done the first and will definitely put the PS on my list :)

Ha ha--Titus is such a cutie! Give him a cuddle for me, Anne!1
