Stitching Update

My Fair and Square finished for May. I just loved this little person with her plant offering from PS. Little people in cross stitch are my favorite things!

Here's my shadow getting in the way of the picture again, but a quick pic of my nearly finished "Amour." I've enjoyed this little one which is getting me back in the stitching mood. I've been off my stitching high lately..... in a slump, I'm afraid. When I look at my beloved things, I just sigh and turn on the tv. This is NOT GOOD!!!!

A picture of my little Yorkie, Clara, copying how mommy has been camped out on the sofa on a quilt these days!! LOL She lounges with me....


Jessica's baby shower was lots of fun. We are still waiting for the pictures so I can post them for you. I'm as anxious as anyone to get them!!! She and I have been shopping for baby Kellan's things and have sorted all his little onesies and clothes. He has an adorable room waiting for him. We will take pics once his crib is up this week. Jessica is 5 weeks away from her C-section!! She's heavy with baby!!


She and I kitted up two Noah's Ark charts on Thursday afternoon. One is a Homespun Elegance (older chart) and the other is PS. We tried to get as much GAST and Weeks threads in them as possible. You should have seen us up on my very high 4 post bed with a humongous bag of DMCs and Anchor flosses, GAST rings, and boxes of Weeks ...and conversion charts!!!

DH yelled from the family room..."Are you two buying more stitching things?" Duh....how could we, we were hardly able to move!! LOL It was lots of fun until Jess couldn't move (literally) and had to roll off the bed to sit on the sofa at the foot of the bed and scan threads over her shoulder! Now she's calling me every other hour to see if I've stitched the Ark yet! Pressure.....:[


Here above is the Ark chart from Homespun Elegance. It may be out of print. I couldn't find it to link to it for you.

Here is the PS Ark. Jessica wants Noah dressed traditionally instead of a Santa Noah on this Ark, too. So, I'll be changing the ark a bit to less Christmassie.

More this weekend! Hopefully babyshower pictures! Hugs, Deb

Well hello stranger. So nice to hear from you and to hear that Jessica is doing well and Kellan will be making an appearance soon. Look forward to those first photos. Your fair and square is just the cutest. I really like the PS Noah's Ark with all the animals. Look forward to hearing again soon and that your stitching mojo is working its way back.

It seems like we all are going though a stitching slump. Tv....no I go and grab a book after I've looked at my stitching stuff.

So have you finished either of the Noah's Ark pieces yet? *grin*

Jenn said...

Oh yeah. LOL I forgot to mention that I love your FS square. Very cute.

Hi Deb, catching up with my blog reading and I've just discovered that you have been ill. I hope that you are feeling a lot better now.
Glad to hear that Jessica is getting along ok and not long to go now.
Love the 2 Noah's Ark samplers that you have picked. I have another one that would go with both these samplers. Would you like a copy of it if I can find it. I think its by City Stitcher and has the alphabet in the bow of the Ark and animals on top.
Having trouble getting the other ones that I promised you, so if you both would like it I'll go on a hunt and see if I can find it and send it to you instead. - glad that you getting better - Sandra.

Hi Deb, me again, if you go to www.citystitcher.com and on page 1 of the cross stitch charts half way down you will find a photo of the sampler that I have. I just discovered that it is around 18 years old. my goodness, time flies when you aren't looking - Sandra.
