Monopoly Monday and Last Weeks Stitching

I didn't realize how much stitching and finishing I had done until I started adding pictures to this entry. Today I worked on the Monopoly Board again since it was Monopoly Monday. Have all the properties outlined for this page. Only 1 more page and the center left to do. I really can't believe how quick this has gone and how much fun it's been to work on.

Some of the next pictures are a little faded out. Not sure what's going on with my camera, maybe I need a new and improved one.

Wasn't sure what I was going to do with the Stitching Angel and decided it would make a really cute cube. I added a heart charm and on the top is a Angel charm. I'm really happy with the outcome.

"A Spot Of Christmas" by Milady's Needle
2009 JCS Ornament Preview Issue
Stitched on 28 count Natural Irish Linen
with WDW, GAST, Crescent Colors, Krienik, DMC and Mill Hill Beads
This will probably be my ornament for the "Christmas in July" ornament exchange in my ILCS group. It was a really fun one to do and stitched up rather quickly. I just wish the beads in the border showed up better.

"Christmas In My Heart - 2005" by Emie Bishop of Cross n' Patch
Stitched on 28 count White Irish Linen with DMC
This is the second heart from the 4 in the chart. I decided since I'm not going to cut this one out I would just do regular Kloster Block and not do the Buttonhole stitch around the border. Tracy was the one who decided this would be done next so maybe I'll finish it on a box top for him to put his junk in.

"Sweet Baby Sampler"
I made some good progress on Maddies birth Sampler. It's almost half done now and I really think I'll have it finished before her first birthday.
I also finished another cupcake or two but can't share them until they find their way to a new home.
Hope everyone has a great week with LOTS of good weather and stitching time.
Until Next Time....Happy Stitching

You've got some pretty stitching going on there. You are fairly zipping through the Monopoly project.

Thanks for the comments you have been leaving at my stitching blog.

Great progress on Maddie's sampler.

Beautiful stitching. Love that cube. Your Christmas ornament is simply adorable. Milady's Needle is actually one of my favorites too.
Oh...and thanks for introducing me to Emie Bishop. I ordered a chart from her. I'm impressed with the beauty of her designs.
Maddies birth sampler is gorgeous too. It somehow fits the little princess doesn't it?

Terry said...

All your finishes are lovely. I can't believe how fast you are stitching up the Monopoly board. WOW!

Nancy said...

Everything looks great and some great finishing too! Can't wait to see who ends up with the next cupcakes!

I think your cube is really pretty. It looks as if you spent a lot of time on that. Your ornament and the second heart are so beautiful. Interested in seeing the box when you are finished.
