It's been far too quiet here lately, but I have actually been working on a new project. I am actually finished stitching this and am working this weekend on doing the backstitching in anticipation of finishing it very soon! This is an Elegant Stitch Breast Cancer Charity piece that I was on automatic years ago. I have a pile of these projects--some are done and others (like this) just waiting to be worked on. This particular design is by Indigo Rose called "Rose of Hope".
And I took advantage of the Super Bowl Sale over at The Silver Needle a few weeks back and got everything on my wishlist. I love the little fobs by Drawn Thread, Peace" and "Love" and had to have my birth month, "February".
More February designs. I don't generally go for mushy sorts of charts, but when you're born in the month with Valentine's Day it's hard to get around all the hearts and gushy stuff. "A Little Love" by Lizzie Kate is another instant gratification project. It's small and I think it will be another pincushion. "February Wordplay" by Brenda Gervais will be another to add to my collection and will likely finish this as a mattress pincushion.
I have wanted "Pink Hill Manor" for ages, though. I love designs with houses on them. And I am a pushover for just about anything Prairie Schooler comes up with and "A Farmer's Almanac" was no different. And I promise...the next needlework post I share will be about something I have finished. I still have snow to fill in on my PS "February" Sampler. I vowed to complete it by the end of the month, which is now quickly approaching! Of course I have itchy fingers to start one of these new designs, but I don't have anything kitted up and had better stay focused on my 'almost finished' projects anyway.
