hello september... where did you come from???


 So where did the summer go?? I can't believe it is September already!  It was June not that long ago, and I was looking forward to the summer months... but I blinked and they are gone!   I hope everyone had a great summer even though I know it went by way too quickly...

As promised, I have some new projects lined up... here are two of them, that I have started so far... All of my new projects are patterns that I've had in my stash for a while and have been calling out to me for quite some time now... It was the perfect time to get them out and work on them...

1. Winter blackwork by Jill Oxton (issue 66)


That is what it is supposed to look like and here is my progress so far...


I'm stitching her on 32ct Queen Anne's Lace jobelan using DMC 844.  If I do say so myself, the picture doesn't do her justice... but that is my fault and my lack of photography skills and laziness to actually take it with the camera and not just my phone...

Shameless plug here... if anyone is interested I do have an extra of the magazine that this pattern is in for sale... don't ask how I managed that one, but I do have two magazines...

My next project is a little brighter...

2. Poppy by Mirabila/Nora Corbett

Here is my floss toss



And my progress on her from my first night of stitching...


I'm using 28ct Sudden Storm jazlyn by Silkweaver for her...

Anyways, I have two more starts lined up, but you will have to wait to find out what they are until I actually put some stitches into them...

Till next time... happy stitching!!
