New Stash and Finishes

I am totally and completly addicted to JBW Designs and these are my latest purchase. If you click on the picture you can get a close up of them.


The first one, "Monogram Collection" has 3 different alphabets in it along with numbers. There are 3 different designs also. Don't think you have ever have too many alphabet choices. The second one, "The French Hen" goes with the Rooster one I already have and I'll be doing those to go in my kitchen. The next two are for seasons and I hope she will be adding more in this series. "A Very Merry Winter" has the cutest snowman with a little red bird. His body is made up of the words "A Very Merry Winter. I just love the egg in "A Very Merry Spring" with it's little bunnies. Of course I couldn't wait to start on at least one of them and here is the finish....



"A Very Merry Spring" by JBW Designs
stitch on 28 count "Cameo" Cashel by Silkweavers
with Carrie's Collection "Sweet Dreams"
This was a very quick one to stitch, it only took a little over a day to do. I'm not sure yet if I'll frame it or make it into a flat fold.

I also finished another section on the LK Christmas Flip it. "Tree" was a little quicker to do than the others and I am almost half done with the project now. I'll get back to it on Friday for the Santa Day SAL. When this one is finished I'll start on the Halloween Flip It's. I'm going to do those in the same manner, all on one piece of fabric and finish as a bell pull.

Back to working on "Home...." and hope to get at least the words above the house if not more done this week.

Until Next Time....Happy Stitching

Very nice stash Rene, I think my favourite is the french hen, love the little chicks. Spring looks fab, the floss you used is beautiful, just the colours I think of when I think of spring. L*K is coming along nicely and can't wait to see more of 'home'. Have a good week,

Love the new stash and all the WIP's. I also have to thank you, if I didn't see all the LK stuff you do on your blog I never would have gone and ordered some of my favorites the other day. LOL

BTW, your March seasonal shelf is adorable. Not sure if you have already heard of this group, but Tonia at Oakhaven Designs has a few really adorable St. Patrick's Day designs. She has one adorable one free for today only for members.

I, too, love JBW designs and your stitching of Merry Spring is just absolutely beautiful!
The LK is coming along wonderfully.
Also, thank you for turning me on to Carrie's threads. I didn't know about them until I saw them on your blog. I ordered 27 of them the other day!

I love the new stash you got. I have been eying the egg for myself. The thread choice is perfect for the pattern. Great job!
