My Weekend Stitcing

My stitching over the weekend was divided between 3 projects, Where My Heart Blooms, Traveling Stitcher and Easter Parade. Yes, I have started yet another project. EP was on my wish list ever since I saw it stitched. Dyeing to Stitch had the chart and I was able to get it there along with the fibers I needed. I hope to have it done in time for Easter and finish as a pillow.

My exchange piece has made its way to Becky. I am so happy that it arrived safely. Red is Becky's favorite color so I stitched this for her.


Both designs are from the Ackworth Pattern Book. They are stitched in DMC 815.

I took part in a Christmas Ornament Exchange on HoE blog. This is my ornament. It took the long way from South America. Thank you Janaina! This now my first finished ornament for 2009.

Happy Stitching,

Gwen

Lovely stitching, DMC 815 is a classic and it really suits the Ackworth motifs too.

Looking forward to seeing your new start :)

Oh my gosh! I love that Ackworth small. B-E-A-Utiful! Red is so classy. The snowman ornament is adorable, too. Great start for Christmas 09! :)
