Progress my dears...

Have a sort of Halloween theme in among my Wips so I thought I'd make progress one of them, this is "before"

 This is a detail of the title stitched over one
an overview so far

Wipocalypse Jan 2012

My wip progress this week has been intermittent, but as you can see I am very nearly there.  Just another leaf and some boarder and "Z".  Not smokin needles but certainly active one.

From little acorns ...

Corny title when you see the stitching I know, but it is Thursday and my first stitching post for 2012! Not quite  a finish yet, but good progress so far.

Bent Creek " Acorn Sampler" stitched on Antique Linen with recommended threads.

In addition I have been busy in the kitchen creating jars of jewel Seville orange marmalade.

Looking forward to my toast tomorrow morning.

Needles at the ready

Needle activity on this blog has been sluggish to say the least this year - so I have signed up to this
my WIPs are numerous, they would all welcome some attention.

All I have to do now is to decide which ones....

Does looking through your WIPs count as stitching?

Happy New Year

to one and all, hadn't intended to be away quite so long...
Have also had an unintended break from stitching, but that's a whole other story!
To prove that needle has penetrated fabric with thread, here is my current project from the 2010 JCS Christmas ornament issue.
La D Da 'Tis Red,
stitched on 40 count antique white over 2 using one thread of Gloriana silk in Ponisettia

I also wanted to show you this thrift shop find, isn't it beautiful

and I hope you'll agree - a bargain at £1.50!

To have and to hold...

I stitched this for the happy couple.

It has been a year for wedding this year, DD was married in April, as was a work colleague and then last Saturday I took Dad to Skye for the wedding of a very dear friends' daughter. I saw Skye at its very best dressed in sunshine. The wedding was a treat, kilts apleanty, but sadly no bagpipes. I excelled at the welly tossing, but couldn't hit the Haggis!
