Finally a stitching update

It has been much to long since I posted. I have been stitching though so finally here is an update.


 "Playful Snowmen Ornament" The Gold Collection
stitched for granddaughter's 2nd Christmas
on antique white with DMC floss
started 07/08/2013 - completed 11/25/2013

 Doll quilt for darling granddaughter.
My first attempt at a very simple quilt.
Of course I did manage to sew the batting on the outside on my first try.
However, with some patience I did manage to redo.
H loves it and so do her dolls.

"Baby Express Birth Record" Dimensions Kit
stitched for our sweet grandson who was born on December 26, 2013
stitched with floss from kit on 32 count white opalescent Lugana
started 10/19/2013 - completed 01/05/2014

Since we no longer live in Las Vegas where my dear friend Adele the framing magician works her magic, I framed it myself and am very pleased with the result.

"Easter bread cloth" from Bake-a-Batch Bread Cloths
for my dear friend Brenda
stitched on (of course) a bread cloth with DMC floss
started 02/20/2014 - completed 03/13/2014

Finally, the 2014 addition to my snowman wall.

"Feed the Birds Snowman" by Linda Coleman (Jeremiah Junction)
 stitched with DMC on 16 count Zweigart dark moss Aida
which was a gift from dear Lili and number of years ago
started in early January 2014 - completed 03/18/2014

I hope you are all well and greeting spring with a smile on your face and a stitching needle in your hand.

So great to see another post from you And you were very busy and stitching up a storm.

Your Jeremiah Junction snowman looks gorgeous. I love her designs very much and have to include another one of hers in my rotation.

All the great stitched pieces for your grandkids, they are so darling. And now you have a little granddaughter and a little grandson. I hope you can see them often.

Oh, I have just seen that you haven't moved to the Netherlands but that you are still in the US. So I guess you don'tz see your grandkids more often than when you lived in LV. BUt maybe you will soon be travelling to the Netherlands and see and hug them again.
