Pictures, and more!

I am not MIA! Don't send out the troops looking for me! --It's cold here, and I've been staying inside and stitching away. Some pictures I can show, and others... not!

Exchange received!

Check out this awesome exchange I received from Marie in the 'From the Heart' Exchange on the USEBB! The design is from 'Birds of a Feather', and Marie made this great needle/scissor/thread book! She also included some great goodies!! I love it all.... Thank you so much, Marie!

And, Heather received the package I sent out for the same exchange. She said she liked everything that was included. The design is called 'Hearts and Flowers' from Mosey N' Me, (a freebie!). I attached the stitching to a little pillow, and included some extras in the package.


And I joined the SAL for the Christmas ornaments the last weekend in January. I stitched the Britty Christmas Kitty from a JCS Ornament issue, on a white 28ct. linen, over one! It's a bad picture.... but, I'm going to put them all together and do finishing on the ornaments when I get a few more done, so, that should be a better picture then.

Here is a finish!!! This is JBW Christmas Motif II (I think).

And a few WIP pictures....

I have been working on the SanMan Originals SAL 'Let It Snow'. I think everyone but me is done, but, that's okay... we still have snow, and it's still coming down!

Here is my progress so far on the DT Gameboard Sampler. I'm working to keep up with the two squares a week! I love stitching on this one!

And, here is my LHN 'Home of a Needleworker'. I'm changing the color of the house, to DMC 932.... no big surprise to anyone there!

I have a few more finishes... can't share them, yet! and am working on a few more. I pulled an Earth Threads chart out to start, so that with every stitch, an extra little prayer will be said for my friend, Betsy.

I've also got my list for my PIF! So... someday.... something might show up in someone's mailbox! Don't hold your breath tho.... I gave myself a year to get these done! LOL


And, finally, for today... some pictures of my work on my quilt squares:


Thank you all for reading, and your comments. It means a lot to me!

Please continue to keep Betsy (Earth Threads), in your thoughts and prayers!

Till later, my friends.... Stay warm and keep stitchin'!

Wow, what an update. Not sure where to begin. The sewing case you received is just stunning. All your stitching is wonderful & I especially love the fabric for the "Let it Snow" piece. And quilts too...how many hours do you have in a day?

Annemarie said...

What lovely pictures! And such gorgeous packages and stitchy gifts. Stay warm!

Vonna said...

WOWZA! You've been one busy beaver!!!! That's some serious stitchin' going on in your house!
Great job!!
P.S. pulled my threads and got my fabric together for the Home of a Needleworker :) See I can't resist! LOL!

So now we know when you are quiet - things are getting done!! Everything looks so lovely (I love the exchange you recieved!!).

I'm behind you in the let it snow piece - I needed to change some of the threads around to fit my fabric (which is a dark blue) and got sidetracked.

You have been busy stitching! Great pictures there. Stay warm.

You've been so busy, I don't know where to start with comments. All your items look great, and the exchange you recieved is lovely as well. Which Earth Threads chart did you decide to start? I have several from classes I've taken, where I only completed the preface piece. However, I also have a couple of the lamb ones, like Lamb's Easter which I've thought about starting, they are so cute.

Wow! Look at all those goodies! You have been really busy!

Camp! Camp! Camp! And of course I'm going, can't wait to see you and Ree again! My sister's coming with this year, hopefully she'll be more social than last time. The Pooka-child is staying home with her sister at Gramma's, though, she'll be in DC the weekend before and already has announced that "it would be too much traveling!"

And I pulled Mary Queen of Scots this morning to bump in front of What Happens at Camp. I should be done with September Song today...

Barbara said...

Good grief, woman, how do you do it all?

I absolutely love the Valentine's theme exchanges - both your creation and the one you received. And your quiliting is fabulous! Wow. Are you sure you haven't managed to clone yourself or something? ;)

WOW, winter has been treating you well! Great finishes and WIPs!

Myrna, you need to lay off the caffeine! Lol! There's no way an ordinary human could accomplish so much. :D

Lelia said...

Hey Myrna: Awesome pictures in your post!! How exciting to open up your blog : )

Beautiful exchanges. Just beautiful. Your quilt blocks are stunning - you have such an eye for color! Those blocks are great. The game board is looking good - coming along & your HOme of the Needlworker, too. Lovely!

I got 2 more squares stitched yesterday & pulled out my afghan. A nice WARM thing to work on in this cold weather.

Oh, I must be behind in my blog reading to have missed all this loveliness. The quilt blocks are gorgeous and everything else looks so wonderful. You have been a busy one-I look forward to seeing more!
