Prairie Schooler

I have been busy stitching prairie schooler santas. I have stitched 2001 and 2002 on the same piece of material and will be taking them to the framer's next week. I made a few changes in colors. I used a christmas red for the santas and put a blue trim around the 2002 santa to give him a more patriotic look. I put my wip monticello on my qsnaps this afternoon and hope to get some more work done on it. Happy stitching everyone!

Progress on Train of Dreams

I got another 2 weeks in on Train of Dreams. Love working on this piece. Now it is going away so I can put in 2 weeks on Treasure Quest.
What I've done so far

Progess this rotation

Tiger Portrait

So here is the Tiger slowly coming along.  Thinking I might not get it done in 3 months, lol, have not worked on it since Sunday night.  Have been working on crocheting some squares for a group that I am in, we are making 28 squares that represent each Cancer to make into blankets.

C is for cat

Here is C is for cat.

The Gentle Art 0820 or Lavender Potpourri
DMC 700, 742, 745 & 3341

Don't really like the purple chosen for this, hoping it will grow on me. The cat is cute though and maybe once the whole thing is done it will blend well together.

The C is one row short, supposed to be 47 stitches high and it is 46 instead. Didn't notice till starting on the cat and didn't feel like ripping out half the c to fix it. Just had to shorten the cats' ears to "fix" it and does not seem to affect the design itself. The integrity of the design is still there.

First Finish of 2011

Here is my first finish of 2011.  It is a quilt square for Quilts for Older Children and Adults.   This pattern had lots of 1/4 stitches which are not my favorites.  I thought of buying the book with the whole alphabet and making it into a blanket but I have changed my mind after stitching the one square.  Too many 1/4 stitches for me - lol.

A small finish...

I'm feeling a little inadequate here.  Ya'all are working on wonderful, large projects and I'm tossing up my tiny, little finishes.  But a finish is a finish, so I'm posting it anyway....  LOL
I've never stitched pieces for Valentine's before...usually I'm more of a "fall" girl.  I LOVE the autumn colors. I liked this lil cutie though so into my basket it went.  Fun, fast stitch.  Love the Lizzie Kate's for busy days!  :)
