Stitching updates

Hello Stitching Friends!

I don't know where the time gets to between posts! I have been busy stitching among other things.

I'm very pleased to say I finished my retreat piece!

With the speciality stitches it was a bit fussy for me. I don't stitch them that often, but I'm pretty happy with the way it turned out. I don't seem to be able to get the picture to rotate, sorry!

Then I have been working on the patriotic woman with the sheep.

She is coming along. I've been enjoying working on her.

I also was able to pick up a recently framed finish from my LNS.

I'm pretty happy with how it turned out.

The frame is really pretty.

Harry keeps us entertained. I've been trying to get out several times with him to the park for a walk. It's good for both of us. He is my perfect walking partner with his short legs and slow gait... :).

Hope all of you are finding some quality stitching time my friends.

  1. Your finishes look wonderful. I love the Halloween one and the red cottage. The frame is just perfect.

  2. A great Halloween finish. And a beautifully framed red house. I love your WIP, it doesn't seem to be far away from being finished.

  3. All great projects.
    Harry is too cute!

  4. Lovely projects! Could you please tell me who the designer is for the patriotic lady with the sheep? I would love to stitch that one : )

    1. Shirlee, the designer is Brenda Gervais from With Thy Needle and Thread. She is intended to be stitched over one thread on 32 count I believe, but I am stitching her over 2.

  5. Love the PSS Red house one! It has been in my to do pile sine it came out. You have inspired me to dig it out again

  6. Love all your designs, Melody, but I'm very partial to your Patriotic Woman. One of the first designs of Brenda Gervais that I ever did and it makes me smile every time I look at it!!! Congratulations!!!

  7. Wow, I love all your stitching! They're all wonderful and so much fun! Beautiful! Harry is adorable! A good way to get exercise for both of you.

  8. Wow I love all your stitching...Harry is so sweet.

  10. Love your latest finish, Melody, and the framed piece is wonderful. How nice to have little Harry to take walks with. I don't have a dog, but have often thought it would be nice to have one to take walks with :)
