Niky's Creations World of Smalls 2013

Last year I participated in World of Smalls by Niky's Creations.  It was an all inclusive kit that was mailed in three parts.  I finished the stitching long ago but finally got around to putting it together.  Niky's designs are primitive in style and she mixes crochet and wool in along with cross stitch.  There is a needlebook, scissor fob, and little ditty bag to tuck it all inside. Lots of fun.

I very rarely share framed pieces but thought I would show you my By the Bay SAL piece.  What I like about Donna's pieces is that she tries to size them to fit in a standard frame.  This one is 3.5 x 5 and I found it at Michaels.  I was able to frame it myself which saved lots of cash (for stash).
Have you found any goodies from Nashville that you couldn't live without.  I always go over board and this year was no exception.  I loved La D Da new releases and Blackbird always has wonderful things.  Stacy Nash and Niky had great new designs as well.  See what I mean...the list goes on and on.  
I would love to know what caught your fancy in case I missed something... Happy Stitching

A Lot of snow results in a bit of stitching

Well,  the weather HAS been frightful.  I have had my fair share of shoveling, snow and cold.  I am hoping that spring will arrive sooner rather that later.  The good part about snow is that I have been able to get some stitching time in.  I am sharing with you a finish that I did in January but haven't had a change to post.  It is called Hibernation Day by Heartstring Samplery.  I changed and added a few colors and love the way it turned out.  I use 36ct Lakeside Linens Vintage Meadow Rue. The GAST that I used where Mulberry, Oatmeal, Grecian Gold, Old Hickory, Piney Woods, Endive, Wood Trail and Pecan Pie.

I think this part of the verse is perfect.  Who wouldn't like a pajama day in front of a warm fire with their loved ones.  Thank you Beth for a great design.  Loved every stitch. Happy Stitching everyone!!  Oh by the way more snow on tap for tomorrow because Saturday's 10inches wasn't enough.
