Tanya's October Pizzazz Progress

Still working on Pizzazz a couple of nights a month - might be done by year's end but not sure what with the holidays coming up. See you in November everyone!

Progress at end of September...

...and below is progress as of end of October

Claire's Happy Dance - Bramble and Rose

stitched on antique white 32 count Jobelan with Threadworx "Morning Meadows". Begun in March 2010 and took an incredible 20 months to complete because I got distracted with so many other projects along the way.

Happy Halloween - a fly by post...

Hi all

Happy Halloween to those of you who celebrate it...

Here is my fly by posting for this month



Somehow I have managed to stitch what looks like a ships steering wheel in the centre (????) Not sure I can live with it like that but will need to see if I have enough floss to fix it once I am almost done...

Happy stitching 'til next time

Shy Violets finish

Finished this two days ago and recieved Pizzazz in the mail yesterday so I'll start that soon. I had fun with this one, made a few changes including filling in the design with a color that matched the model on the chart. Changed the floss colors as well, used Valdani Evergreens, Orchid Mauve along with the Gast Sugarplum and DMC 522 and 523. Inside is the lighter DMC and outside is the darker.

Shy Violet start...

I've started Shy Violet while I'm waiting for Pizzazz to come in the mail. I'm using Valdani Evergreens for the green and will probably swap out another color for the creamy color as well. I'm thinking of doing this pattern three in a row with different purples as a gift for a relative. I'm using I think 18ct fabric (sort of a mystery cream fabric.

Namaste in its rightful place

Almost forgot - here's a photo of my finished Namaste hanging at my local spa. They are hard to see but I attached to the bamboo hangers some fake Chinese coins I found at my local A.C. Moore in the jewelry section. Not culturally accurate but they achieved the mood I was looking for :-) Sorry about the picture quality...I look forward to seeing what everyone else does with theirs!

Pizzazz September Progress

This is pretty late but hopefully not too late :-) Have not had much time to work on this due to working on Christmas gifts but did manage a couple of nights. Still love this floss so much...

End of August:

And September progress:
Happy stitching everyone - see you on Halloween!

claire's rambling B&R

Am working almost exclusively on this piece at the moment because it's been rambling on since March 2010 and I really do want it finished this year.
