Riesenmustertuch - Part 1 complet & started Part 2

This is Part 1 of RMT we are stitching through the Sticklounge group. I've finished part 1 and have started on part 2. This is a really easy to stitch. I've enjoyed working on this piece, but it's going to be VERY large. I'm working on White 18ct Aida using DMC 3687, which is much brighter in real life. For those of you that don't know RMT is also listed, on the net somewhere, as ABC 1900. I really love the alphabets in this design and have enjoyed stitching it.

This weeks stitching!

This week I've worked on the Odds & Ends (LOGO) design by Tam running through the Sticklounge group. I have really enjoyed working on this. There isn't much thought put into the colors. I just am trying not to put "like" colors together. I need to get started on Part 3 and get it finished up.

Quaker - Paix by Carinne

This is "Quaker - Paix" by Carinne. This was one of her 2005 freebies. I found it in a stack of WIP and decided to finish it up. It's done with HDF "Rum Scullion 4335" on a piece of HDF linen. I really like how it turned out!

Here is a link to her blog:

Hope it works. She has tons of very beautiful designs!

Pictures from Trip to Vikki's

The "boxes"!!! the fourth one from the top came home with me!!!! It was very antique looking and I fell in love with it. I'm doing a design for it and will take it back next year for the exhibit!

Mary Ann choosing silks.
Another rack of silks and it's on both sides people!!

And another one!

Here is Gigi's letter "V" done for Vikki. Isn't it gorgeous!

Here is "Mette", stitched by Karen, in all her glory. Isn't she beautiful!!!!!

Well, I 'm back from my trip up to PA to visit Vikki Clayton! It was wonderful! I took lots of pictures, which I will post later on today.

We left about 6:00pm on Wednesday evening and stayed that night in Bristol, VA. Then went the rest of the way up on Thursday. We got to the hotel about 5:00pm. Absolutely gorgeous country up through Virginia, but I-81 is LONG!

Friday morning we went to Lancaster to visit the Quilt Museum and the architecture of some of the buildings is just amazing. We went through the market next to the Visitor's Center and Oh My what a market. We left there about 2:00pm and headed to Hershey Park for the evening. We did the Hershey World tour and tasting. I have to tell you though, the tasting is WAY over priced for 5 little bitty pieces of candy.

Saturday, Sarah, my daughter, and I went up to Vikki's place and I made the mistake of going over Gold Mine Road. We have some treacherous mountain roads here in north GA, but that one scared me to death. Anyway, we got to Vikki's, after several wrong turns, and the place is amazing!!!! I love old buildings and this place is a goldmine! Not only does it have Vikki and all the walls of her lovely silks, but it has lots of character, too!

Karen Bugg brought "Mette" in all her glory and she is beautiful in person. There were lots of great stitched items there! I was just amazed! Sarah decided she wanted to try painting some fabric, so Lynn showed her what to do and I have to tell you the piece turned out gorgeous and she's excited. Vikki and Lynn taught her how to do a few silk ribbon stitches and she fell in love with all the ribbon, so she came home with a bunch of that and her painted fabric. She's a happy camper! She says she's going to do a piece and send it up next year for the exhibit. I really hope she does.

Me, I came home with one of Vikki's boxes, large piece of 32ct Jackelope linen and a few silks. The box was the main reason I went. I wanted one of those bad boys in the worst way. I'm doing a design for it and will send it back next year for the exhibit.

That's all for now, but will post my pictures later.

My "Stitching Bucket List"

The other day we were discussing our "Stitching Bucket Lists". You know, those designs that you really would like to stitch before you "kick the bucket". Well, I started mine, down on the right hand side, nearly at the bottom. As you can see, there are quite a few of them. Of course, they will be whittled down as I get a few WIPs finished and out of the way.

I started by looking on the Stitching Bits & Bobs website and going through every designer (this is just a list through the "L's", they had listed and if something caught my fancy, I included it. Of course, by the time I actually get to some of these, I will have lost interest in them, so can then remove them from the list. I will continue to add to the list as I find things that I really like.

Each one has a link to the actual chart, so look through it. You just might find something that you haven't seen before!
