Weekend Stitching

After the lack of focus on stitching at the end of the week I think I made up for it this weekend.


"Witches" is getting really close to being finished. A few more pumpkins, some ground and the bottom border are all that is left to do. I'm working on it today and with any luck will be finished tonight or tomorrow. I really still love this piece as well as the one I did last year and hope they design another like it.

In my ILCS Hardanger Class we are doing this as a SAL.....


"Pansy Sampler" by Victoria Sampler
I'm stitching it on 32 count White Belfast Linen with the recommended silks and DMC Perle Cotton. I do have a mistake in the first two bands and will have to do some frogging but it won't be too bad. I'm going to finish this as a needle roll.
I HAVE A FINISH....


This is one of the kits I got at JoAnn's on sale. This is the actual size of the finished piece. Stitched on 18 count Aida and mounted in a cute little card. I'm sending this out in our ILCS Ornament Exchange and hope who ever gets it likes it as much as I do. Can't wait to do the others I got but being a good girl (for today at least) and will finish "Witches" first.
That's what I did this weekend while watching Football, NASCAR and NHRA races (Yes I am a racing junkie).
Until Next Time.....Happy Stitching and Thanks for all your comments.

Cute, cute, and no I don't see the mistake, but I guess you wouldn't unless you knew the pattern. Looks good to me. Can tell where those last pumpkins go. No doubt you will have it finished up by this evening.
