Let's Stitch!

Sweet Becky has started a blog called Let's Stitch for those of us who are looking for some extra support and encouragement in our stitching endeavors. Right away, I knew I had to join! It's not often that I get in a stitching slump but I have been ignoring certain WIPs and UFOs. You know, the ones we call BAPs? (Heck, these days anything bigger than 3"x3" is a BAP for me!!)

So, tomorrow a group of us Let's Stitchers are having a Stitch-A-Thon. I will be working on my VoHRH, which I haven't touched since our move. Isn't that sad? Here is my "before" picture:

By tomorrow night I'm hoping to have made some noticible progress! Be sure to check out the Let's Stitch blog! If you're interested in joining us, there's still room for more!

It's Fall!

Long time, no blog! But I have been doing a little stitching and I have a fall finish to share!
Fall Squared
by Lizzie Kate
stitched with WDW on 28-ct. gingham linen in straw/natural

This little cutie stitched up so fast, even for me! I did substitute a different color thread for the lines in the pumpkins. They aren't showing up as well as I had hoped so as soon as I find my WDW Brick (I know you're out there somewhere!) I'll be doing a little re-stitching.

I'm off to get my hair cut! Cross your fingers I don't end up with something three inches shorter than I'd planned!
