One of my first --years ago

More in progress...

This one is called fall surpise because it's a surprise for someone.  I had to go out a buy a smaller frame thingy as you can see!  But I love the fabric -- it's a 32 ct. scrap and was perfect!

This is Christmas Songs ll which I never would have known about except at stitching one week, a friend pullled this up on her Iphone and I fell in love.  I'm leaving some parts of designs off as I go because I intend to go back with a cranberry krenik thread to give a subtle sparkle.  I love both the fabric and the fiber color on this piece. It's my go to when I need to really quiet my mind ---if it gets done quickly you'll know that's a message all it's own!

This is my second time with this piece. I did it years ago for my Dad and his wife and a friend always mentions it when she looks at other things I've done.  So I decided to stitch it for her as a surprise for Christmas.  She's not a stitcher or blogger so I feel fairly safe.  Before deciding to do it for her I was actually going to do it for me!  Not sure if I can do it a third time...but it IS awfully pretty!  Just have a little left around the bow, then the Krienk gold and silver threads to add subtle sparkle and I'm done.  It's by Stoney Creek, stitched over 2 on 28 count jobelan (I think!).

So last weekend I decided it was time to go through the stash.  If I have too much my brain freezes--weird huh?!  But that's what happens --it becomes overwhelming.  So I created this amazing group of stuff and decided to sell it on Craig's list.  The "lot" includes linen( some big pieces in there), about 18 good Just Cross Stitch mags, with Lizzy Kate, Drawn Thread and other patterns, some overdyed threads, some finishing fabric and a few other fun things --find it listed on Craigs list for Raleigh-Durham.
