Stitching Hell

Hello Everyone I have been in stitching hell the last few days. I had to rip the sky out on Hair Raising Halloween, I kept thinking it didn't look right. I ripped form 10pm Sunday evening until 2am Monday. I couldn't sleep so I ripped..... Then on Monday I thought well I'll put in the right color in the sky now. Well guess what??? I didn't have the right floss Gurrrrrrrrr So I thought well then until I get my floss I'll go back to the Coco-Cola Santa because I had gotten the floss that I ordered....... I forgot one skein of floss........ and it was the area that I was starting in and I really had to have it to get started. So now I have decided until I get my floss I will start "Forrest Snowfall" by County Cottage Needlework's. At least that one I know I have all the floss, anyway lets hope so. I'm planning on taking my Prairie Schooler Windows Sampler to get it framed today. I just hope I can find what I want for it.

Started A Halloween Chart

Well I know I said I was going to start a Co-cola Santa. But when I went to get my supplies I discovered I didn't have all the floss. So this is what I have started instead, I will still get my Santa on the go. Maybe Monday

It's Done!!!!

I finally finished my latest stitching project, Prairie Schooler November Window Sampler. It took me a little longer than I thought it would, but then I have been doing all sorts of other things. I had to make 2 dozen corn muffins for DH to take to work because they were having ham and beans and I was volunteered for the muffins:0) also this past week I have made chocolate chip cookies and peanut butter cookies plus blueberry muffins and bread. So lots of baking in between stitches:0) Sorry about the picture with the q-snap but didn't have a better way to do it. I tried scanning the picture but it was blurred so decided to take my non photo taking skills and see what I could come up with. It does look a little better.

My next project is going to be a Coca Cola Santa by Pegasus. DH picked this chart out 2 years ago, so I guess it's time to get going on it, never know maybe I can have it finished by Christmas.

Little House Needleworks Heart Of America

I have finally taken a picture of this finish. I have to give it to my friend Karen tomorrow. I stitch for her all the time. I may have to do this one a second time for myself:0) If you click on the image you can really get a better look at it. As you can see I don't use my camera much. I mostly scan my projects but this one was too large for the scanner.

Second Update

Here is my second update for my November sampler. Today it's pouring rain and cold too, so more like November than October. Don't the little trees across the top remind you of a cold November day? I really like the way this is coming out. At first I thought I may have chosen to stitch it on the wrong color of fabic but now as I stitch I think it really brings out the colors of the floss.

First Stitches For October

Hello Everyone, Well here it is October, it was cool enough that all day this past Sunday we had to have a fire. We heat with wood, really smelled good too and very nice and comfy sitting and stitching by the fire.

I really should be doing a little more cleaning as we're having company this next weekend. But I did get the bathroom done, at least that. Here are my first few stitches for October. It's another Prairie Schooler from book #149 November this is the smaller one of the 2 samplers, called Windows, I'm stitching it on 28 count Mushroom Lugana, I plan to do both samplers, but decided to start small. Glad I did because I took that little tree out in the left hand corner numerous times. The bad part being I kept making the same mistake. But fixed it this morning at 3am.
