A Start, WIP's, A Finish

It was a good stitching weekend here....

A Start,,,,


"Good Things...." by Lizzie Kate
This just kept calling to me and I kept thinking of the Spring colors I could use so I had to start it. I'm going to use lots of color and think it will be a bright addition to my stitching area. I also plan on doing something fun with the chart when finished so stay tuned.
WIP's....

"Christmas Flip - Tree/Candy" by Lizzie Kate
This is now half finished. I think I'll stitch on it a little more during the week since I want it finished NOW so I can start on the "Halloween Flip".


"Home Is Where You Hang Your Needlework" by Homespun Elegance
The colors didn't come out very well in this picture, it is a little darker than what is shown. I really like this design and look forward to finishing it soon. It stitches fairly quick.
A Finish....

"Not Tonight..." by Sue Hillis Designs
I love this design and will probably stitch it again. I will be looking for a mat and frame later this month and since it will fit in a ready made frame I'll frame it myself. I want a dark blue mat and a white frame. Not sure where I'll hang it, maybe the bedroom.
Well that's my weekend worth of stitching. Tomorrow (today since it's late here) I'll be working on the Monopoly board and who knows what the rest of the week will bring.
Until Next Time.....Have a great week of Stitching and good night

That LIzzie Kate is great - I like it more every time I see a blog friend do it. Can't wait to see what Halloween looks like!
Yay for the cherub - except, shouldn't it be a frog for you??

As always great work, love the colors for the LK and the cherub is great as well. Like the idea for framing too.

Will look forward to your finishing surprise! You got lots done and all without a race this weekend!! We finally had decent weather to be outside so we had to take advantage of that!

Beautiful stitching Rene, like the colours for 'Good things'.Look forward to seeing your finish framed and your monopoly progress too. There are 2 awards waiting for you over at my blog. Have a good week.
