Don't Ya Just Hate It?

Friday night I completed the stitching on an exchange piece that's due on Feb. 15th.  That's good, right?  Well, yes it is. I've even looked closely, and I believe there's not one stitch out of place or forgotten.  So, yesterday, I thinks to myself...Stitch on one of your UFO's before you start the next exchange piece.  And I did  I stitched on a BBD and made good progress.  OH, NO!  I was off one stitch.  So, I frogged what I had stitched, and then re-stitched.  Note to self, oh heck, I've said it before and it doesn't help. It's one of the joy's of stitching.  Have a wonderful Sunday everyone. 

Just a few more days to enter my 100th follower give-a-way.  Haven't decided what I'm going to stick in the box, but I anticipate lots of stitchy stuff!

Winter Seasonal for Karen

I heard from Karen that she received the Winter Seasonal Exchange piece I sent her.  I was somewhat worried about the package getting to its destination because it sat in Tulsa distribution center over a day before it got on the road.  I chose an old design from the 1990's to stitch.  The price tag on the design was $1.00.  You know the design is old by the price!  Here it is:
Let it Snow
Homespun Collectibles
32ct Fabric, DMC threads
I didn't notice until after I had the piece packaged and ready to mail I forgot to stitch the belt!.  As my good friend says, We just do the best we can.  I need to start taking a photo of the stitching before I do the finishing.  I still think he's a cutie.  

On the stitching front I'm working on my HoE Santa Ornament exchange piece.  It is going slow, slow.  Hopefully I'll get the stitching done this week.  Speaking of stitching, I guess I'd better get busy.  Have a good evening.  I believe we are in for some rain tonight.  Good sleeping or should I say, good stitching weather.

Charms give-a-way

Nancy is having a fabulous give away on her blog.  Hop on over and take a look.

On the stitching front, I completed the stitching on my Seasonal Exchange.  I even know how I'm going to finish it too.  Hope to have it in the mail on Wednesday.

Very windy here in OK tonight.  The shutters are rumbling! LOL.

Have a great stitching Wednesday.

Wendy Jo's Birthday gift

This is what I stitched for Wendy Jo for her birthday.  We are birthday buddies on the Friends Through Threads exchange.  She likes Americana, so this LHN design was perfect for me to stitch for her.  I also included a needle threader and a gift certificate to Anita's Little Stitches.  Wendy said she had this design in her stash to stitch.  I used a 32ct fabric and the called for DMC's.  I love the tree in this design.  It turned out pretty well if I do say so myself.  I've stitched the design for myself and also received it as an exchange piece.  Well, I have three exchanges waiting on me, so guess I'd better get those needles flyin'.  Have a great evening.

I've been keeping a secret.  It's time for a give-away.  I finally reached 100 followers.  So, if you'd like to receive a goodies box from me, leave a comment on this post only.  I don't know what I'll be sending, but it will definitely be stitching related. I'll do the drawing on Groundhogs Day, Feb. 2nd. Oh, no hoops to jump through.  Just leave a comment on this post.

Here's my last stitching for 2011 and my first finishing for 2012.  Completed the beading yesterday morning even though I had the piece stitched on Christmas Eve.  Some reason I couldn't get motivated to finish it.  The design is Fleur de Lys Tree by ScissorTail Designs.  She is from Tulsa.  CC's Belle Sole Creme de Menthe was the called for threads, but I didn't have that color so I substituted a Threadworkx color. It's a gift for my pastor's wife.  Since it's still Christmas until the 5th, I'm still on time!

I'm presently working on an exchange gift, so no photos right now.  Have a great day.
