Even More Stitching (With Big Smiles!) and Pics as Promised!

Thank you all for the wonderful comments, I do appreciate it! I continue to enjoy stitching again and continue to stitch! So here are the pics as promised!

Yesterday I worked on the Quaker (Quaker Mon Ami, I think ???) called Quaker 6 Mains by Mon Ami Pierre © (I was close, almost got the designer right LOL) some more and am almost finished with page 1. Here is how it looked last time it was on the blog:

No Idea the Title. Got it as a freebie online.

There was a tad more done but I apparently didn't take a picture. The letters Q and q were added and that's where I stopped somewhere in 2010 I think it was. When I emptied my bag the other day I had the fabric and the chart, but couldn't find the list of floss numbers I had used. All I could remember is they were 38's in DMC. So I scoured my blog, luckily I did write the floss numbers I chose onto the blog; 3831, 3832, 3833. I was very happy when I found that, yanked the floss and got stitching. Here is where it stands as of April 14, 2014:

Back in Dec. 2011 I was participating in an Ornament challenge. I stitched a few ornaments and left one in progress. I finished that last week, here is the picture:

Around the reindeer's neck is a bough of holly. It is done in green x's and red French Knots. Along with the Holly Reindeer, I also stitched the Mistletoe Reindeer, The Stocking reindeer, and Believe. All are by Daffy Cat. Believe and Stocking Reindeer have been shared before. So here is Mistletoe Reindeer as I can't find a post on my blog where I shared the pic of this one.

Many many years ago I stitched a bunch of small Christmas designs onto Aida fabric. My intention was to turn them into ornaments. For years the large pieces a fabric (Black and white) just lay in the drawer with the stitching on them, but not cut out for finishing. Eventually I cut them out and pinned them together, but never finished sewing them. Well, I finally did and they are ready to be used on this year's Christmas tree. These came out of different Leisure Arts leaflets and a Christmas Book or two that I have. Here is a pic of them:

That's it! Nothing since Dec. 2011, and in one week I finished a few WIPs and an owed exchange. So now I'm going to do some more work on the Quaker Mon Ami (I think that's it, not sure though and I'm probably wrong) Quaker 6 Mains by Mon Ami Pierre © (I was close, almost got the designer right LOL)The other day while stitching I decided to try listening to an audio book. I have Stephen King's Wind Through The Keyhole as an audio book, being read by the author, so I started that up. It was FANTASTIC! Now I know why all you lovely people rave about listening to audio books while stitching, it is great! So I'm off to Mid-World, the Starkblast and needlework!

  1. So lovely to see you stitching again and such lovely stitching it is.

    1. Thank you! It feels very good to be stitching again. :)

  2. Such beautiful stitching and finishing! :) I'm so glad you were able to find the floss numbers you needed. Whew!

    1. Thank you Sharon! Yes it was quite a relief to find the numbers, I was not looking forward to trying to identify the numbers by checking all the bobbins or via my color card. lol
