Snow Friends...

Happy Hump Day!
I'm glad we're on the backside of this week....as next week my kiddies have a much needed fall break! Whoo Hoo!

Over this past week...
I started a new project. Please let me show you all my start:

Snow Friends

Snow Friends 1

Snow Friends 3

"Snow Friends"
and
beginning border for "6 Fat Men"
Designer: Lizzie*Kate
Copyright 2011
Stitched on 28 ct. mocha linen
Stitched with Weeks Dye Works and Crescent Colours as charted

Pretty...
doggone cute, isn't it? I fell in love with this whimsical, sweet design as soon as I laid eyes upon it. Its cute and will be a happy seasonal stitch to add to our winter decor. I'm looking forward to the next square. But because I have SADD...stitcher's attention deficit disorder....and I let my fingers do some clicking in webshots, photobucket and flickr over the weekend looking at people's stitches....I'm starting a NEW project this evening! WHOO HOO! :)  you'll just have to wait to see what it is.

I'm finding...
that working on something until I get to a logical end and switching it with another project is working for me right now. I tend to be a "one at a time" stitcher, but I was losing my mojo recently and the tantalizing thought of stopping and starting something else to go back and pick up where I left off is working for me right now. We'll see....

So until next time...
I'll be keeping my fingers busy stitching with my hands at work and heart to God!
hugs and love,
Signature

  9. Oh I just love your new LK project. I have never seen this design before, but it looks like I will have to add this one to my wish list. I hope you all enjoy your fall break. We just finished ours and are now trying to get back in the grove again. Take care.

  10. I have the first 3 and will get the other 3 soon. I got fabby for it, but not the floss. I think I will do them for my new place next year. I'm moving next summer and will need stuff to put on the walls....

    ReplyDelete
  11. Vonna, your start is simply adorable!!!!! This series is *so* on my wish list, but it will have to wait for awhile since I'm on a spending freeze of sorts while dd is in college. I've considered just stitching the cute border that's on the website, picking up a skein of floss or two at a time, and then I can buy a chart at a time and fill it in later. : ) It's not like I don't have enough projects to keep me busy!!! Can't wait to see your new start!!

  12. Great new start! L*K designs are so fun and just make me itch to stitch them!

  13. Love the new start! It's so cute! Enjoy that time off from school. It's nice to have a tiny break once in a while, isn't it?

    ReplyDelete
  14. That is so cute! Now I can't wait to see your other new start. What ever could it be?!

  15. I love this one Vonna course I'm always up for a snowman pattern - I've resisted buying this set but I may cave in. I wanted to belatedly tell you how lovely your new stitching accessories were - the ones you made with the wooden hoops and the scissor holder - just way too cute! I saw that on the same blog and tucked the idea away for 'someday' so great to see what you did with it. I also love the new Jingle piece you finished for Tanya - oh so much temptation! Thanks for keeping me inspired Vonna, it's hard to keep up to date with everyone's postings so better late than never!

  27. LOve the color of the text; it is just really gorgeous on that linnen! I really want to cheer for you for finding out and doing what works for you right now (funny how that changes, isn't it.)

    I thought of you while frogging out Santa's Coat and I am pleased to say I put the final replacement stitch into it last night and finished it today! I need to get some pics and blog him when the sunshine comes again! :D

    Thanks as always for your sweet encouragement; you are such an exhorter!

  28. The fat guys are cute. Scouting around looking at stitching blogs is the best/worst enabler for sure! Keep up your great work!

  42. What a darling snowman, Vonna!! Laughing at your SADD comment :) I have always been a one-project-at-a-time stitcher, too, but just lately, I've begun working on more than one thing at a time and I kind of like it! Can't wait to see what your next project (or projects!!) will be...

    ReplyDelete
  43. Well-done Vonna! I love this one too, but if I purchase one more stitchy, I will blow my budget for the holidays! LOL I just can't do that. But I do think that this LK is my favorite. :) Cathryn

  44. These little guys are just sooo darn cute! I spotted them when they were released but added them to my wishlist for now.
    When it comes to my stitching, I find having more than one on the go works best for me. I get bored easily and like to switch things up. I limit things though to no more than four projects.
    I just finished my Halloween Quaker so I get to start another. Yippee!

  45. I love this series too! It's looking good!

    Hugs

  49. I love yours Vonna! I'm really enjoying stitching mine but using DMC so will mine will look a bit different. I haven't got a snowman stitched yet though, just snow and a house!

    ReplyDelete
  50. Snow Friends looks great. I love that design and seeing yours makes me want to go start it too:))

    Can't wait to see what you started new! If our mojo is slipping I think we need to do whatever makes us happy! That's what stitching is all about -- making us happy:))
