A Finish!

Hello, all!  I've been seeing good progress for many after the IHSW.  I thought about joining, but my weekend ended up being a bit busy, so it's probably better that I didn't.  Maybe next month you will see me there. 

Not a great deal of stitching done this week, although I did finish the Autumn Garden Sampler.  It is now with the finisher to be made into a bell pull.  I'm very excited to get this one back!  It's been a long time since I have had a finish, it seems.  That is the drawback of the BAP's, progress is slow and finishes few and far between.  So this was a nice feeling of accomplishment!

I also started a little ornament.  Little House Needleworks Happy Holidays from the JCS 2010 Christmas Ornament issue.  Hopefully, this will be done today, then I will try to get it finished into an ornament next week.

I have made a tiny bit of progress on Crystal Roses, but haven't taken a picture yet.  Still on the now boring white on that one.  I did a bit of stashing.  123 had a sale on Autumn themed charts and I got Mill Hill's Button and Beaded Kit Autumn Collage and the frame to go along with it.  I was a bit suprised at the size when I received it, lol;  it was a bit bigger than I expected.

I really, really want to get a start on The Drawn Thread's Open Heart.  It's sitting here all ready to go, I'm just trying to be good and get some finishes before I delve into it.  I thought I was going to try to get Crystal Roses finished before starting it, but I think that is not going to happen, lol. 

Happy Stitching!



  1. Beautiful work, Tamara! Your Garden Sampler looks wonderful! Keep it up!

    I know how you feel about starting your Drawn Thread project....I have a HAED project Im just chomping at the bit to start but I made myself a promise to finish up some other ones first!
