2009 - Splendor by The Hearts Content

I've decided that the year 2009 will be a "finishing" year for me. I have so many WIP's and UFO's that I really need to get some of them finished. I will add a list of every WIP & UFO that I have found in my stash later and will add to that list as I find others around my house.

The first on my list will be Splendor by The Hearts Content.

I absolutely love all of the Splendor design and some day may be able to get my hands on the next one. I don't like kits, so I found someone with the chart only and traded her the copy of Blue Ribbon Sampler I had for it (Thanks LISA!!) and she got me a gift voucher from Vikki Clayton's site, Hand Dyed Fibers, for enough silk to stitch it with.

I'm stitching it on a 28ct Heathered evenweave and using some mystery spools that I got with the gift voucher. The silk is a variagated blue and I hope two 50 yard spools will be enought. I'm stitching 2 strands over 2 threads.

When I finish this one I hope I can find someone who has just the chart and not the kit (I don't do kits) for the next one that will trade with me for it. :)

I'll post a picture tomorrow of my progress. Ya'll wish me luck in getting this finished!!

Suthern Stitchin' - Abigail

At the moment, I'm stitching the model for one of my designs - ABIGAIL. I've changed the colors around a bit though. Instead of using black and red, I'm using green, red and gold. Of course, they are from Hand-Dyed Fibers!! :) The colors are Winterberry 1427, Willow Withies 3229 & Cerveza 4145, all in premium and I'm also using Vikki's 35ct linen! I must say that it's coming out absolutley stunning!!!

Long Dog's Bienvenue

Here is the sampler that I stitched for my daughter. She picked out the color of thread, which was Vikki Clayton's "Carribian Eve". The fabric is, I believe, Sand Dune by Silkweaver.

I really, really HATE the mats. They were not what I picked out, but I took it anyway because Sarah loved it. The blue mat is alright, but that other one is really bad. If it had been a closer match to the fabric color it might have worked out alot better. I do plan on having the mats replaced.

How Does Your Garden Grow

This is the Floss Toss for the new Papillon Creations Mystery for 2008 called "How Does Your Garden Grow".

The fabric is Silkweaver's "Poltergeist" 32ct Lugana and the threads are HDF, from left to right, Victorian Leaf, Verdigris, Nectarine, Blue Violet, Seafoam & Rose Blush.

Marquoir Story - Part 1

This is Part 1 of Marquoir Story by Isabelle Vautier of Passion Broderie.

I had started this once before about 5 years ago and was using a really bright red, green and yellow on a 28ct white evenweave. I just recently decided to pull it out and work on it some more and just didn't really care for it with the bright colors. So I decided to start it over.

This is done on Silkweaver's "Everglade" 32ct Lugana using DMC colors 520, 729 & 3726. I really wanted a more traditional look to this and love the colors that I'm using.

EMS Project 2008 "Rose Sampler"

This is Part 1 of Ellen Maurer-Stroh's "Rose Sampler" SAL. The fabric is Silkweaver 32ct Lugana, the color is Fern. There thread is Vikki Clayton's.

This design is gorgeous and just screamed for eyelet stitches!!

Here is my first finish for 2008: Rainbow Gallery's "A is for Acorn". I used an off white 28ct evenweave fabric and silks from Hand-Dyed-Fibers, Vikki Clayton.

I plan on doing the whole alphabet series and make them into a quilt for my new granddaughter, Zoey.

Well, it's another year!! HAPPY NEW YEAR!!

I've made my first completion for the new year and have also made my first start for the new year!!

I plan on setting up a 10/25/50 Challenge for this year, but need to get my list together. I know what my first challenge will be though, that's getting my stash organized. :)

Will post more later, when I actually get something done and get started on my organizing.
