Finishes Happening Here and an Upcoming Giveaway!

     Good Saturday morning ya'll.  It's a chilly 40 degrees here, but it's sunny and we have a cloudless sky today.  TinyGirl is in her favorite window soaking up some of that warm sunshine and it's hard to believe that she has been with us for close to two years now.  Found her as a tiny little kitten in a shelter in Morehead City and she found it quite comfortable here, even with Riley.

     I'm finally able to show some pieces that are finished and two of them framed.  I love, love my Quaker Diamonds.  Enjoyed the 143 hours that it took to complete.  Loved the colors and each diamond was so different from all the others.

     Then there is this one, which I finished a couple of years ago, but it has sat waiting to be framed ever since.  So I'm posting it now in a frame that matches it perfectly.  Eight and a half hours for this.

     Then there is the second one in the series from Little House of Needleworks. Will continue with the others in between larger pieces.  Will make them into little pillows when they've all been stitched.

     This year I think will be the year for WIP pieces and an occasional something new.  I do have a wedding announcement to make and a gift to make for a sweet cousin of mine.  Oh yes! I'm still adding to my stash as far as charts, fabric and threads go.  Us serious stitchers have a tendency to do that!
     Oh yes! I'll be having another giveaway pretty quick here.  It will be for a $25.00 gift certificate for the Texas Lone Star Steakhouse.  I had purchased it as a gift for Christmas, only to find out later that there aren't any of these restaurants in our area.  So if you have one near you and would like to enter to win this certificate, the rules will be the usual.  Need to be a follower and if you have a blog of your own, mention the giveaway on your own blog.  I'll start this giveaway on the first of February.
     Must go for the time being.  Have a newly painted room to get in order and it "ain't" going to be easy! Will be nice when it's all done though.
     So, until next time, keep in mind that I'm so thankful for and love every one of my followers.  Ya'll take care and be safe and well.  Enjoy your stitches and remember to "feel the colors".


  1. Both your framed finishes are beautiful. Enjoy your weekend!

  2. Excellent framed finishes! Lovely work on the small as well and your year of stitching sounds a lot like mine. I'm hoping to finish off several WIPs as well without too many new starts. We don't have that restaurant either.

  3. Your finishes are very beautiful.

  4. Lovely stitching and beautiful finishes! The Quaker Diamonds are especially gorgeous!

  5. Beautiful projects! I'll look forward to watching your progress throughout the year.

  6. Love the Quaker Diamonds and the chosen colours.
