time flies....

Wow, where has the time gone??? I can't believe it is almost the end of October and the that the last time I posted to my poor blog was back in July!

Time to dust off the ole' keyboard and get to work! I wanted to update my side bar with my monthly blinkies, but it seems that photobucket isn't working well today, so that will have to wait.

I have been busy stitching away, just as usual not posting... I have a bunch to show off, but I'll break it up into a couple of posts...

First of all I'm behind in posting my tusal's to my blog... I have been posting them on instagram, just as you may have noticed, not here... so here we go!

this is August's jar as well as the year to date in the bigger one
next up is September's jar and the year to date... as you can see lots of stitching going on.... and of course finally this is for October...
I've been working on all sorts of things, my various wips as well as starting new things, but those will come later... for now I'll share a couple of little happy dances...
One of my wips is the mini twist series by Northern Expressions, which is a 6 part series of different specialty stitches... I've done the first two... I am doing them all in the same colour combination and all on one piece of fabric.
Part one was Symrnas and Eyelets and part two was Rhodes and Rice stitches...  here they are together
I am using 32ct chocolate milk jobelan by Hand Dyed by Stephanie, DMC 930 and blue bunny thread by Nina as my colour combo.
I also started and finished off Remember Me by Sheepish Designs... I first saw this framed up at LNS and fell in love, and even though it is an OOP design, I began my search!  Finally after a couple of years I managed to track it down and here it is! 
It looks a bit crooked in the picture, but that is just due to my photography skills... it really is a nice rectangle....  It is stitched on 32ct ivory jobelan using the called for DMC, except I did change 2 of the colours - the pinks as the original ones were more brown and I didn't want brown flowers... and the original picture on the chart showed something similar to what I chose.
Wips and new starts up next... but that will have to wait until my next post...
Until then....happy stitching!

Glad to see you back, I'll have to look for you on Instagram too. I love the colors you chose on the mini twist series.

That's a lot of Orts!
What will you do with them when you empty the jar?
The tiny twist piece is gorgeous, I love the colors in this one.
Makes a great practice piece for different stitches too.
The Sampler is pretty also.
