I've Escaped!

Not really, but, did any of you wonder if I was MIA? It seems like I haven't posted in forever! Life was getting hectic for a few days. Back to semi-normal now. Had my other toe done this morning, so, I will be in my stitching nest for the weekend. I kitted up three projects yesterday, and brought them downstairs to the 'nest'. I let DH pick out the first one to stitch, and he picked "Ladybugs and Bumblebees" by Country Cottage Needleworks. Not much progress last night... but, a little:


And, here are a few of the other things I have stitched up (sorry about the bad pictures):

"Coeur Romantique" (freebie) by Reflets de Soie (enabled by Von) on 18ct. white Aida with Olde Willow Red Rock fibers.

"Beginner Whitework Ornament" (freebie) by TWDesignworks (enabled by Lili) on 28ct. Miracle Mint Lugana with Olde Willow Spring Blossoms fiber, and MH beads #00525. This was fun to stitch...

"March Stamp Flip-it" by Lizzie Kate on 28ct. Bone Lugana with DMC fibers, and three tiny yellow buttons.

"Shamrock Kitty" by Calico Crossroads on 14ct. white Aida with DMC fibers. Aren't these adorable?!

And... Lelia and Nancy -- the Shamrock square up in the corner... It was a kit called 'Hearts In Clover', one of my LNS's monthly Stitchin' Fix Kits. It is stitched on 10 ct. Bone Tula. I finished it as a 'box' type thing.


Yikes! It's snowing again!! I thought spring might be on it's way!

I best get off now before DH comes home and finds me playing on the computer and not sitting with my foot up! I'll plan to read blogs either later or tomorrow and see what you all have been up to! Thanks for reading, and thanks for your comments. They make my day!

Stitching on today: "Ladybugs and Bumblebees"

Happy to enable, Myrna!! It is a pretty heart isn't it! I also got that whitework freebie the other day - love yours in the overdye! Very springy. :D
You behave, rest that toe, and stitch now, ya hear!! Lol!

Well, you've made lots of stitching progress this week. I've always liked 'Ladybugs and Bumblebees' and have that one waiting in my stash to be stitched!

Myrna: Excellent projects!! How cute is that cat & shamrocks : )
(Your green - whitework came out so nice!) Keep your foot up & take lots of stuff to dull the pain.

Off to Nick's Band concert. Alex wants to stay at home -- they do get sorta long .... Thank goodness for crock pots.

You did a great job on the whitework! (greenwork?)! Very original! I'm glad to read you enjoyed it!
I love this March flip it! Makes me smile...
Hope you soon get better with your toes...

Hope your other toe is making a quick recovery ... I'm sooo behind with blog reading, sorry - but boy, oh boy, as soon as I turn my back for a few days your needle starts smoking - you've been busy!! Your latest wee finishes are all gorgeous - I especially like your whitework ornament ... I love the look of the overdyed thread for it ... I think I'll have to definitely do that one :)
