Happy Hermitter

New Start?!? I am blaming Juls for this one, she provided the fabric (bad influence I tell you). I had bought 2 other fabrics for this project (one was unstitchable and the other was used for another project) so I had put this pattern aside. Then I went to Julie's this weekend for an amazing stitching day and there amidst her enviable stash was the fabric that was meant for Silver Moon Tea: 32ct Belfast "Silvery Moon." Magically, every element fell into place and I broke my own personal record... 1900 stitches in 3 days!!!
Silver Moon Tea is perfect for me because I am a HUGE tea drinker. The little pig above is a gift I received from my friend Kristen, it is a tea buddy. Why? Because you should never drink alone.
While at Julie's she also gifted me with a pattern I have coveted for some time now, "Promises" by Nene Thomas! It will make the perfect compliment to "Pretty." And....
This STUNNING piece of fabric from Silkweaver called "Poltergeist!" I have been imaging what I will put on it all weekend! I was so excited after returning home from Juls house and thankful that I have such amazing friends to share my stitching with! The Maiden.

Finally a Finish.

My first finish of the year. It has been a long time coming. Venetian is almost there, but I haven't had the inclination or time to really put in the effort to complete her. Maybe by the end of 2012?

Wipocalypse 2...Tree of Hope (The Crone) + Needle punch

Tree of Hope....One flower left and beading!!!
Needle Punch Kit that is so very cool...Called in the Pasture by Threads that done with the entire center and almost done with all the sheep heads. Very exciting and fun. So easy to do, well worth doing to give yourself a break. It is really fast, and also you don't have to have xray vision to get it done..unlike everything else I work on. thanks for hanging out with us.

Wipocalypse...The Crone

My First Wipocalypse Finish...Yahoooooooo!! It is not that I have been slacking, it is just that I happened to go back to a former favorite past time of mine Needle Punch. I will put my fun project up for that as well in a minute. I also am almost done with the Tree of Hope by Mirabilia. It is one of my older projects (go figure) and also on my Wipocalypse list. I have only to finish the last flower and then the beading. At least it looks like two of my list of five will get finished. Thanks for looking. The Crone
