March Update

After my B & R Happy Dance last month my new project for March is Masquerade which I am stitching on 28 count hand dyed fabric by Polstitches called silver lining using Gentle Art Sampler threads. I am thoroughly enjoying stitching this design and think it won't be too long before I am doing another HD it is stitching up so quickly. Here is my progress so far.

March Namaste Finish and New Start




Well, finished stitching, that is. I am waiting for my bell pull hardware to arrive in order to finish fully and will post a pic of same when all done. Above are my before and after for Namaste, and at the very top is a shot of the beginning of my next project, This Heart of Mine. I have never worked with overdyed or variegated threads before, let alone silk, so I am starting small with this. It's DMC Color Variations 4065 and I am working on a cheap piece of DMC 28 count linen :-) Thus if it doesn't turn out well at least I am not out much money!

Pizzazz and B&R is growing weeds




It's been simply ages since I posted here - sorry :o) My B&R (started in March 2010) has grown weeds of late I really must get my act together and get some regular hours on it in the coming months.



However, I do have an Ink Circles finish - it was started by my teenage daughter on "parme" aida using "Morning Meadows" Threadworx but she got bored with it, so handed it over to Mum to finish off.

Panic Free, thanks to Tracy



Hi again everyone


Well I had high hopes of finishing my Bramble and Rose this month for a happy dance, but decided I 'needed' to stitch this little 'Panic Free Gift' designed by Tracy as soon as I saw it in TGOS 'The Gift Of Stitching' online magazine. After fiddling around choosing fabric and colours, I did manage to finish it, so I suppose that rates a mini jig : )

March update



Panic Free Gift, TGOS online magazine Issue 60.

My choice of colours DMC 310 (black), 221 (red), 830 (dk gold), 833 (lt gold), 926 (ant blue) & 3740 (ant mauve)



I plan to make this into a cover for my new mobile phone - hopefully some-time soon, but I won't panic if I don't (sorry) ....


Happy stitching 'til next time

March Progress: Growth Rings

I love stitching on chilly nights!
I thought I was on a stitching tear until I compared my Feb/March progress.
I'm still loving it and I can't wait to stitch the other color! -carla

February Update - a Happy Dance

I didn't expect to finish my Bramble and the Rose until March but I had a few unexpected days of work and managed to get lots of stitching done so here are my before and after pics

February - Happy Dance



Stitched on green 28 count Wichelt linen using Threadworx Blackforest 1084

As a reward for my finish I "had" to treat myself to a new Ink Circles design to continue contributing to this blog (well that's my excuse lol)and have started stitching Masquerade which I am thoroughly enjoying.
