Sunday June 19, 2011 Update

Happy Father's Day to all. I am posting a picture I scrapbooked of my father.

I have had another good week of stitching rotation with only a little mishap onlong the way. I completed the 11th ornament of the LittleHouse Needleworks 2010 series. My mishap was that again for the second time I discovered I had started the Christmas Animals wrong again. So for the third time I started over, as I will get this piece stitched as I love it. Here are pictures of my WIP for the week.
 I am now on page 3 of the Alphabet Sampler Book by With My Needle. I am enjoying working on the 18ct linen(my first). The letters are coming out really neat.
 I completed #11 of the 2010 Littlehouse Needleworks ornament series. "Joy to the World" It is a pretty ornament.
 EMS Feb. Violet is progressing great. The colors are wonderful.
 My Dec Blue Snowman is complete. Now for the lettering and I will be able to frame it and add to my collection of the Year of the Snowmen by Vermillion
 My Garden of Joy now has an Apple Tree in it. This is a fun piece to stitch.
 Starting for the third try, I am going to get it right yet. This the Christmas Animals by Heaven and Earth and it is a neat piece. I will get stitched as I love the picture.
 I have now started my 11th Christmas card for 2011. All my friends enjoy receiving my stitched cards.
My Horse is complete now for the rider and saddle on The Old West by LittleHouse Needleworks.
This is the first in the new Button Up Birdies series designed by Cathy Jean for The Victoria Sampler. It is the November Chckadee. I love this series as I love stitching birds.

Happy stitching this week to all my friends.

Wow, you have so much in progress (and so much progress to show). I would never stitch cause I would never be able to decide what to stitch on. I have a very, um, structured rotation. I'm hoping to get lots done with it. I should be starting within the next couple of days.
