Busy Stitching

I have a couple of finishes!!  YAY!  I have been trying to squeeze stitching time in here and there.  The weather has been beautiful all week, upper 70's, so I have spent lots of time at the pool with the boys.  Great place to cool off, not a great place to stitch.  No one wants to get their over-dyed fabrics or thread wet with chlorinated water.  YIKES!  Here are the pics of my finishes.


LHN Ornament Silent Night
30ct Tin Roof with recommended fibers

Rosewood Manor
Keys to the Kingdom
30ct Parchment
DMC and Mill Hill beads

I tried to get a closer picture for you to see the beads but this little camera can only do so much.  It is much prettier in person.  Both of these are shop models for ABC Stitch.  Next up is Nora Corbett Little Snowy Green Cottage.  I haven't made enough progress on it so no pic this time.

Back to the back breaking task of weeding the flower beds.
Happy Stitching!
