The King's Vegetable Garden by Martina Weber

 


I was having trouble stitching on my other large Chaterlaine Mystery Sampler, Convent's Herbal Garden. So I got out this one and I am liking this one a lot more. I think this one will replace the Herbal Garden. I probably won't be doing much stitching for several days. I am getting a partial knee replacement tomorrow and I will probably have a lot of pain meds. in me for a few days. No sense in stitching when you have to redo every thing you've stitched. So, when I get something new in a couple of weeks I will post it.

The King's Vegetable Garden by Martina Weber

 


This is the little pool that I've been working on this week. My mind has not exactly been on stitching so I had to do some retro stitching. I should be able to get this one done before I move on to the next piece in my rotation.

Nordic Needle's Button Sampler

 


This is what I accomplished on the Button Sampler last weekend. All I have left is the filling stitches. I love all the extra ideas that Roz gives with the initial pattern. It sure got the creative juices flowing.

Gingerbread Tree Etui

 


The panel on the right is what I worked on this past week. I've had so many headaches and body aches plus getting ready for a partial knee replacement that I didn't get much done. The picture above is what I've done with all four sides so far. This pattern was designed by Victoria Sampler.

January Nordic Needle Ornament Club

 


I just got January's ornie done from Nordic Needle's Hardanger Ornament club. I should be able to get caught up by the end of the month. I really love these ornaments and I will have to find something special to do with them come this Christmas.

March Santa Pillow



I decided to get this one finished with March fast approching. Now I'm ready for St. Paddy's Day. The next one is January and it's a real pretty one.

December Ornamnet - Nordic Needle


This is the bigger or bottom of the ornament for December. I am so sorry about the blurred picture. My digital camera died and we got a much cheaper one, I guess you get what you pay for. Any how I am now starting January with February to go. Due to some health issues I didn't get a lot of stitching done on my Christmas Tree Etui. I decided I will catch up with these orniaments and go back and do another week with the Etui by Victoria Samplers. There is a possibility of a knee replacement for me in the very near future so, I will be getting a lot of stitching done if this happens.

December Ornament - Nordic Needle


This is the top or smaller ornament for December. I decided again not to put the two together because it would knock out the greek cross in the bigger or bottom ornament.
