LHN January Progress

Progress!  



Have had a couple of quiet days at home this week during the day 
and so I've enjoyed some time to sit and stitch.   





Had to redo the little pine tree as I miscounted where it's placement
 should be the first time around. 
Never fails that even with a small pattern, I'd mess up.



Such a cute pattern.

January Stitching

When winter arrives, it immediately puts me in the mood to stitch.   Something about cold weather outside, fireplace on, a nice cup of hot tea or coffee and needle 'n thread that makes me feel very relaxed.  

Here's a not so good photo (iphone once again) of my beginning process on a Little House Needleworks chart in the Cotton Thread Pack Series called Sampler Months.  First up is January.


Stitching with the dyed floss it came with 
but on 32 count Natural Raw Linen.

Hope to finish this soon and pop it into a frame before the month is out.

Holiday Projects

A few Christmas projects I did with some sweet friends.  All are cased from stampers that shared on Pinterest or their blogs.  



These were so much fun to make, especially the globe ornament using SU!'s White Christmas and half globes bought from Michael's Craft Store. 

Thanks for stopping by!

Happy 2016!

Happy New Year!  
A quick post to re-enter blog land.  Hoping to post more in 2016 of my papercrafting and stitching efforts.  

I was totally behind in getting Christmas cards out so when January was at hand, I created some Happy New Year ones and sent those out instead.  Sorry for the photo quality.  In a hurry to get these out, I used my cell phone.  Not the best.  
Here are the 3 different styles I sent:




I used SU! Star Framelits in gold and silver foil, vellum with gold dots, Woodland dsp, last year's retired dsp, clear diamond bling, sequins and the stamp set Six Sayings.

May this new year bring you lots of blessings, sweet memories and much happiness!

Love,

A Few More Masculine Cards





A masculine birthday card and another Father's Day card using the same supplies as the last card creation I posted.

Father's Day Card

Continuing my goal to use up retired designer series paper from SU!, I made a Father's Day card using an old A Muse Artstamps "golfer" I've had for a long time.  Paired it with another A Muse stamp sentiment inside (not shown) which reads "have a swinging day!".  



The paper is the same from my last post along with Sahara Sand and Chocolate Chip cardstock from SU!  Father's day sentiment from SU's Teeny Tiny Wishes and Papertrey Ink's dotted stamp from Faux Ribbon.

Loving that it's summer break for us.  Have a great weekend!
