New updates

Well I finished my Grandma's present but forgot to take a picture of it so will do that soon...but I have been working on the Ink Circles Mystery Stitch A Long..I worked on it so much today my shoulder aches..I really need to get a bigger scroll frame to fit the fabric rather than the hoop but I forgot to get a dowel the other day. Hopefully soon I can work on it even faster. This pic is my latest of what I have done so far.

Stitching Updates

I know it has been quite a while since I have posted anything besides the weekly SBQ so I decided to show off some stitching that I have been doing lately...the first one is a present for my grandma for Mothers Day...I'm not sure of the actual title of the sampler but the saying that will be on it fits her very well. It will say..Grandma's are just antique little girls.

The next picture was taken about a week ago showing that I just started the Ink Circles BAP's my first SAL and I am really enoying seeing everyones colors..on the left side of the picture there is a skein of thread that is cut off
:( but it is black..the rest of the colors are pretty true to what I chose :)

This last picture is of the progress I have made so far..unfortunately I am going to have to set it aside for a little while and work more on the Mother's Day project as I am a slow stitcher and am afraid I won't get it done in time if I continue working on both :(


What items do you consider essential to your needlework that you keep
in your stitching bag?

My stitching essentials are..extra needles, a pencil with an eraser, highlighter, thread heaven, scissors, seam ripper, needle threader and tweezers.
