Merry Christmas

May you all have a blessed Christmas with all those that are near and dear to you.

We will be spending Christmas with our children and grandchildren in Europe. 

We are thankful for the wonders of the season and the special blessings that being together with our loved ones bring.

12 days and 3000 Xs later

page 4 is done.
Page 4 doesn't add anything spectacular to the picture for the moment. A lot of sky and a little bit of ?

Bored? Not at all. I'm anxious to see what page 5 will bring.

Thursday is Love Quilt Day

A number of years ago I stitched  a number of quilt squares for Love Quilts. When I recently joined the local Sip and Stitch charity group it seemed a good time to stitch for them again.

Our group meets every Thursday from 10:00 am till noon and we work on any charity project we feel like. While knitting, cross-stitching etc. we enjoy a cup of coffee, a cookie and a lot of wonderful conversation.

I am currently working on a quilt square for Charlotte's Kids (theme #42 Pink and Purple....Girls).

The design is by Nathalie Cichon of Jardin Prive and is named "My Lady's Quaker". Although I have stitched this pattern before I am enjoying it just as much the second time around.

Page 3 is history

Yesterday at 11:09 p.m. I completed page 3 of "Bygone Summer". This picture does not do justice to the colors as it is a very dull & rainy day here in Michigan. If you  look closely on the bottom right hand side you will see a straw hat. We'll have to wait a while to see the entire lady as the rest of her won't appear until page 10 or 11. That just makes me want to keep right on stitching.

Have you ever stitched a HAED, a Mystic Stitch or another pattern which completely covers your fabric?

Several years ago I stitched my first HAED "Bunny on Path". This first attempt was 1/1 on 18 count Aida and the result was so pretty.

Since "Bygone Summer" is so much larger and I've had a wee bit of experience stitching "Bunny" I am now working 1/1 on 25 ct lugana. Love it!

Have a wonderful weekend and happy stitching.

Two pages down and seventy to go

So far I'm enjoying every minute of the journey.
