FLASHBACK Friday!!!!!!!!!!!!

Here we are again, Friday. Since I am only into my second month of blogging, I have lots of old finishes to show you. The ones included tonight are some of the ones that I will be entering in the fair. The plans are to take 8 pieces to the fair. Had an e-mail from my friend and she already has my name labels ready to go.

STEALING OATS
by Brittercup Design
I stitched this for my friend Corky's birthday about a year ago. Therefore, it is called Corky's horse at the LNS, from where I took it, to take to the fair. Design is stitched on 28-ct Queen Anne's Lace Jobelan with the fiber as called for in the pattern. Frame is from East Side Moulding.


Plant Your Seeds
by Little House Needleworks
This was stitched on 28-ct Queen Anne's Lace Jobelan. The overdye on the fabric does not show up much on this. I have seen other pieces of Queen Anne's Lace that has a lot of color to it. I used the fiber that the pattern called for. Frame is a double frame done at the local frame shop.

MOON AND STARS
by Little House Needleworks
The fabric for this piece is 28-ct Mercedes Cashel from Picture This Plus. With the help of the LNS we converted the Crescent Colours that was called for to Weeks Dye Works and/or Sampler Thread. The frame is from East Side Moulding. This design has been a good seller at the LNS where it resided until a couple of months ago. Now it is hung at my house.

Stitching continues on the design model for The Sunflower Seed. I am getting real close to having it done. Had had trouble with the border and had to do some frogging. Partially due to my inability to read the pattern properly. Today I found an error and called Anita to find out how she wanted it done. Got the wrong stuff ripped out and put back in the way she wanted it. After a weekend of stitching, I will be either done or so close I can smell the end.

Since, I will be gone to the fair for the 1st 3 days of next week, I will miss both stitching group therapy sessions this next week. Probably will get some stitching done, but will not take the design model. Have plenty of other projects that I can take along.

Earlier this evening I got a call from a friend in my church asking if I would be interested in an stitching group at the church. Of course, I would. Never enough therapy sessions. I guess several ladies in the church expressed an interest in having a stitch group. It will not be exclusively counted cross stitch. We have several ladies that do quilting also. Several of the older ladies do stamped embroidery, knitting and crochet. Hopefully, we will get them involved. We planned to have our first meeting on July 31st. I am looking forward to it.

Might be a week before I can post again, with me being gone to the fair, etc. Plan to bring back some good pictures.

Hope everyone is enjoying their summer and getting lots of stitching done.
