A finish plus others ...

Finished!  Yippee!

I changed the pattern slightly, instead of words in the top right section, I put a butterfly.

Works in progress:

I really like this pattern -- even though it has scads of  stitching "errors" on it (someday, I really must learn how to count).  It's in 2 parts because I didn't take it out of the rollers to photograph it.

See the Star is coming right along .... it's almost finished!  I love this pattern and am happy with the colors I picked.  However, if I were to do it over, I would chose a lighter color for the outside flowers.  The reason has nothing to do with the way it looks and every reason to do with dog hair.  I'm going crazy trying to pick out the light dog hair from the dark DMC 3371.

And here we have a new start from the Stick Lounge.  It's called When Stars Collide by Tam's Creations.  The fabric is 28 ct black lugana and the threads are very sparkly Kreinik braid and Sulky.  And to add a little more sparkle, clear beads are included. 

Hmmmm, call me crazy.  Wasn't I just complaining about white dog hair in brown thread?  Now I'm stitching on black fabric???


  1. Beautiful WIPs!!! I hear ya on the dog hair. I am always finding stray cat hairs on my stitching...

  2. Thanks Jules. Pet hair is a specialty thread at my house ;)
