A New Start

I have been working on a gift for the past week so I've had nothing that I can show but, here is a little peek (and yes I mean little) of what I've been working on.


So last night I decided to pick up Letters, Leprechauns, and Luck by Blue Ribbon Designs and give that a start while I watched the Red Sox game.



It's not much of a start but, with all that counting I tend to count and recount to make sure I'm not off any place. I really like this piece and I'm so thankful to Redwich for telling me about it before it even came out back in January.


Here is a picture of the finished piece. I'm posting this picture for 2 reasons. 1 so you all can see what this finished piece looks like and 2 because I ended up with 2 copies of this chart and the fabric for it. So I'm selling the second copy, and the fabric to go with it (a piece of 40 count Tundra that the model was stitch on) If your interested you can contact me at my e-mail address which is under the About Me link in my side bar.


Earlier this week it was just to hot to stitch so I read the latest book by J.R. Ward in her Black Dagger Brotherhood series. J.R. had created the most amazing world of vampires that I've been totally addicted to these books since I started reading them back in February of this year.

I hope you all have a great weekend and thanks for stopping by.

It was definitely hot last week but I'm glad you finally got to stitch. Thanks for the little peak of the gift. Can't wait until the person gets it so we can see the rest.

LLL looks like it will be lots of fun to stitch. I can't wait to watch it as the checker board comes to life.

Happy Stitching!

Great new start, Jenn! There's some cute little motifs in there. Sounds be a fun stitch once all that counting is out of the way.

Glad to be of help! (Sorry I'm late to this and sorry you ended up with 2!)

Love the blue in your gift stitching, can't wait to see how it turns out :)

The vampire book sounds intriguing, I'm partial to a good vampire tale myself!
