Weekend Project

This cutie was a chart that was given to me by Aj"Feisty Kay" Brokaw last year. I wrote her and told her that i would get it done by next March. I found the most irish material I've ever seen and that is what I made the pillow with. It is really cute and I thank Aj so much for the pattern. This was my weekend project

Dreams of Atlantis

Here is the very begining of a Heaven and Earth design called Dreams of Atlantis. Doesn't look like much right now but, I really have fun watching it take shape. This will take awhile but, I really like the picture and I will enjoy doing it.

Heart Strings March Santa Pillow

This was my rotation piece for the past week. I am almost done and should have it finished by March. The finishing will be easy as all I have to do is cut it down so it will fit in the tuck pillow that came with the project. This was a monthly series of Santas with pillows, I havew several more to go.

First WIP of 2012

I have made a couple of New Year Resolutions and my blog is one of them. I've decided this year that I will take pictures of my WIP's instead of just the finished project. I have picked some rather large projects and if I waited until they were done, it might be awhile before I posted. I have a rotation going with six projects and three weekend projects. This is my first project and it's new for this year, it's called Castles in the Air by Pappillon Creations. I love the colors that I have selected. I was going to do a red in place of the yellow but, when I put the yellow in I decided that went with the blues and greens a lot better. I hope you come back to see how I am doing with all nine projects through out this year.

November Nordic Needle Christmas Ornie Club

This is the bigger ornament for Nordic Needle's November Christmas Ornament. I usually put the smaller one on top of the bigger ornie but, in this one it would have covered up to much of the pretty stitches. So I have two for the month of November. December and January I will go back to putting the two together.
