Return to Blogging/ Stitching Update

Well, I feel much better and have the energy to take up this blog again.

While I was recuperating, I worked on Boo Jack:

and finished the two squares for a biscornu:

 (Pattern from The Floss Box)

and I bought some stash fabric:

and I purchased some kits to stitch for Christmas presents:

including this gorgeous peacock, which I hope to finish for my daughter's Xmas present:

and I started AND finished one of the small kits this past weekend:

It came out great! The only way that these can be displayed is with an easel stand. I plan to get clear stands for all of them. This one is for a birthday present for a friend. I highly recommend these for a quick gift. I got mine on sale from Joann.com and with the free shipping coupon that week, they were a fantastic buy.

andI made progress on my Dimensions Petite Gold Beautiful Bird kit:

I plan to do some work on this blog (add a counter, etc) and do my own free charts over into PDFs that can be easily accessed. I'm going to make a schedule of visiting a certain number of bookmarked blogs each day, that way I'll be able to keep up with all the latest news and stitching.

I see Becky SC is not blogging due to illness in the family, and I can sympathize, especially when cancer is involved.

Happy stitching everyone!

Trillium - a lovely blog! You asked about Eugene, Oregon Farmers
Market - and it runs every Saturday thru the end of October so you'll be able to visit it and the Saturday Market right next door.

Welcome back! I'm so glad you're feeling better!

Lovely stitching :) As for the sock blockers that you asked about...honestly, no. You don't 'need' them. I only bought mine for photos :)

Looks like you kept very busy during your recuperation--I love each of your finishes and WIPs... That peacock is exquisite--I know your daughter will treasure it.

Hope you continue to feel better each day :)
