Percy & Tiger
The fur babies and I would like to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year. for those of you don't celebrate Christmas, Happy Holidays.
I couldn't get the cats in the holiday spirit, LOL. The dog doesn't like it , but I am bigger than he is so what choice does he have . LOL
I am getting closer to finishing the Toccata #1. I stopped working on it to work on the square for Kelvin.

This from the Prairie Schooler book #85. I am stitching this for Kelvin, his wife passed away in Oct. She was a member of one of the groups I am in. Several of the ladies in the group are stitching different squares, then one of them will make a quilt for him. I am almost finished with this one.

Whoopee! I finally did it. I hope everyone is sitting down. Yes! I finished Edwina Bear.I have been working on this since Oct. 2008.
This is a kit from Bucilla called Paper Dolls/ Teddy Bear. It is 16 x12. Stitched on 28 count. I did change the fabric. The kit comes with white fabric. Now I have to get busy and frame it.

I have been busy the last couple of days working on the Toccata #1 . I am quite please with the progress. It has been way too hot to go outside, so I just sat and stitched. I was at D when I started yesterday. I ran out of thread for the letters so I stopped for the day.

Wedding Angel

I finished this piece in Oct. 2008. I didn't have any one to give it to. My aunt called and needed something quick , so I put the couples name in it and the year.
This is the first piece that I have framed. It turned out quite nice, at least I think so. LOL

This is Tamika. I finally got her some clothes made. She is one of the many dolls that I had made , but never got around to making her clothes. She should be going to her new home tomorrow.

Seeds and Pokes exchange

This is the first exchange I have done in several years. It was allot of fun. But I forgot to take picture of the ones I sent. This is what I got from Jessie. I love it. She was soo good to me. I really love the poke, it reminded me of a cat I once had. His name was Lil Spot. And I love Teddy Bears, so you know the leaflet was a big hit.
A big Thank you Jessie.

This is Baby Flossie, I cast her from the mold from Doll Art Works. I actually started her about a year or so ago. She has porcelain head, shoulder plate, arms and legs, and a cloth body. I had to fix her dress , I didn't like the way it looked. I have several other dolls I need to put together, and make clothes for. I am starting to get back into making the dolls again. I hope to have my Kiln in the next couple of month's. I am getting excited.
Tha sad thing is that I moved to a different department at work, now I am only off on weekends. It will be hard to get things done. But I will find a way.
Thanks for looking.

This is my longest cross stitch I have done. It was mt first large project. It took 4 years. I finished it Oct. 1996. I am planning on getting it framed.

This is the famous furbaby, Zeb (Pomeranian) and Purcey sleeping together( Top picture). Purcey adopted us right after we got Zeb. So they think they are brothers. They where so funny when they where babies, they would roll around play.
The bottom picture is Zeb after his haircut today. He looks like a rat with a fluffy tail. We have him shaved once in a while. He only weighs 7 lbs., I think Purcey is a bit heavier, at least he looks like he does.

I just started using the scroll frame , I like it pretty much. But I still like holding the fabric in my hand. I made a tote bag to carry the frame in. It is reversible on side has the kitty kats, and the other has the paw prints, I thought it was cute. I also made the covers for the frame to help keep the fabric clean. I didn't have a pattern, i had seen them in a book and just figured it out. It was fun and didn't take long.

Stitching Up date

I have been working on Edwina Bear. She now has both legs. That little rug she is standing on is a bear to stitch.
This is a Bucilla kit called Paper Dolls/ Teddy Bear
It came with 28 count white even weave, but this was my first project on 28 count, I missed up. In the process of frogging I cut the fabric in the center, so I changed over to this fabric.I can't wait to finish.

We had a little snow. LOL I am tired of the cold. I am starting to get use to the snow. I am glad to be off from work for a couple of days. I hope to finish my friend's piece.
We got a new couch, I hope to get a good butt print going. This is our second one in a year. The old one broke at Christmas 2008. I had to sat on it for 2 months before we could get a new one. Then that one messed up in lest than a year, so the store replaced it with this one. I hope it last longer. I hope this fabric holds up, it's that microfiber stuff. I hope it cleans easy. since we have the 3 cats, and dog laying on it, and me.

Stitching Up date

I haven't worked much on the Stitcher's Studio or the bears lately. I haven't really been in the mood . But I have also been working on a Cross stitch for a gift for a friend. I hope to have it done this weekend. I will have to wait to post until the friend receives it.
I haven't even touched the horses image that. LOL
