Sad news is we are losing another local needlework shop. Chris at Creative Stitchery and Framing, Richmond, TX is retiring and closing the shop. We will miss her. I have enjoyed the stitching times at the shop with other great stitchers. I have made a number of great friends also. Chris and other stitchers have helped me improve my stitching and try new things, like stitching on 28 ct linen and evenweave. The shop will be missed. She is having a great clearance sale and of course I had to have more stash. First week of not working has been very good, no stress. I have been checking into a number of options, so I have been busy.
Stitched on my WIPs and made a little progress on them, as well as stitching on ornaments for exchanges. I have received an ornament from Meg, that is pictured. It is really pretty. I will picture the ones I have mailed after my exchanges have been received.
Here are the ones I stitched on this past week:
Acorn Sampler -Periwinkle Promises
Exchange from Meg in Molova
Friendly Stitchers Autumn 2012 exchange
Alphabet Samplings Book-With My Needle
Snowman and Friends Christmas Stocking-Gold Collection Kit
A lot of background stitching
Lilly Nora Corbett
More stitching on the skirt.
Persy Pig-Mill Hill Beaded Kit
Ready for the Beads
Yellow Rose Birthday Card
Ready for the backstitching and stems
The Halloween House-Ursula Michael Sal with other stitchers
Almost have the flower pletals stitched, only a little left on the top petal.
Happy stitching in the coming week or whatever life throws your way.
