It's Snowing!

As the first snow falls on the mountains so does the snow fall in this frosty forest! The Maiden

Stitching Snowfall


While I have had ample time to stitch of late my needle has sat idle, but with the birth of my niece just 2 weeks away I had to get stitching! I finished the sampler yesterday and picked up Forest Snowfall by Country Cottage Needleworks.

I had given up on this stitch along last year after the top boarder was in, my snowflakes just disappeared! I may have a solution now and the stitch is so quick I thought I should get a post in before it's finished! The Maiden

Queen of Ween

 The Crone came to town for Halloween and we worked into the late night hours to create these tea boxes!
I had an inspired Hallows Eve, filled with all my favorite things: friends, baking, writing, sewing, and stitching!

Superstitious as always, I believe that how you spend this day will set the Course for your whole year... I cannot wait to see what the next 365 days has in store! The Maiden

Stitching & Showers

I am at the halfway point on my niece's birth sampler, just in time for her baby shower!

The favors were designed with the idea that my sister dearly loves cacti and this baby is going to be a "Georgia Peach!"

The cake was divine 

and what party would be complete without a candy bar!

For Those We Have Lost

Red, White & Blue by the Cricket Collection was started in October 2017 as a Memorial Piece for the victims of the Route 91 Shooting in Las Vegas. Stitched on 28ct Thyme, it took 12 days to complete.
 
 
As the 1 year anniversary draws closer I will be reminded every time I look at this project that we are and forever will be Vegas Strong!

MIss Mariposa

The Mother has begun a "frankenstitch" of sorts, devising a way to combine the bottom half of Mirabilia's Queen Mariposa with the torso and head of Miss Christmas!
 
 
The Skin and the butterflies are one over one, the tiny delicate stitches creating a painted effect. I joked with the Mother that it is only a matter of time before she attempts an entire Mira with one strand of DMC floss over one strand of 32ct fabric! The Maiden
