Heart Note Alley - Part 8

Finished Part 8 of Heart Note Alley by Kathy Bungard from the Sticklounge Yahoo Group! Only 3 parts behind now.

Sunday, December 11, 2011


So I've decided to join 2012 WIPocalypse to try and whittle down some of my WIP's. There is a link at the top of "My Favorite Blogs" list, if you're interested. You should really check it out!

Rotation GONE!

I just can't seem to stay with the rotation that I set up. So I've decided that I really want to finish HAED's Treasure Dragon Stocking (since I started last year and still haven't finished it for my son). I'll work more on it than anything else. But I do still have the SAL's that I need to work on too, so I'll work on those as I get tired of changing threads all the time.

Rotation revisited

Okay, already my rotation is "out the window". I forgot that some of these are on a deadline and you have to finish a part and show a picture before you can get the next part. So I'll be redoing my rotation over the weekend to include these. Plus I added the Wal D'Champs Rose Garden SAL from several years ago, so that one will have to be added also.

So far I have:
1. Rose Garden SAL - Wal D'Champs (have to finish a part before receiving the next)
2. Berlin Work Sampler - Sticklounge Group (same as above)
3. Heart Note Alley - Sticklounge Group (same as above.

I may work on #'s 2 & 3 as the parts come out and then work on Rose Garden in between since it's really big and I only have until September of 2012 to finish it, or pay for the parts. I may just pay for the parts and add it to the list. Don't know yet.

Happy Stitchin'!!!

Sommerherz - Progress

Here is the latest design that I'm stitching with the Sticklounge Group. It's called Sommerherz (or Summer Heart). I'm using DMC 3341 & 3345 on a light green linen that I got from HDF. One more part and this one is finished. :)

Gazette94 - #1 - Completed 5-1-11

Here is the very first of Claire's "Freebie" designs from her blog. It's stitched on 18ct Aida with HDF silks in 3 colors. I decided to finish it as a small pillow.

Gazette94 - I LOVE THIS BLOG!!!

I love Claire Findlay's blog:

I have followed her blog for a long, long time. I've decided, when I feel the need for a quick finish, that I'm going to stitch as many of her designs, she so graciously gives us, as I can and I'm going back to the beginning! With her very first one.

Victoria's Quaker Needlecase - Dessin - Completed April 7, 2011

Here is the complete stitched piece. I used HDF "Yawning Mountain" on 28ct Ecru Evenweave. Since I'm not real handy with a sewing machine, I'm going to take it to my aunt and let her finish it for me.

This is the left side and if you look at the top part, the colors are pretty close to what they should be. The bottom is much lighter.

This is the middle panel and same as above, the colors in the top are closer than the colors at the bottom.

This is the right side, which will wind up being the front. In this photo the colors at the top are very, very close to being right.

ABC1900 - Progress as off March 27, 2011

I started this a long while ago, when it first came out, but other things, like life, got in the way.

I finally finished Part 3 last night and started on Part 4. It's a very easy stitch and I can watch TV, or rather listen to it, and work on this without being afraid that I've miscounted somewhere.

I'll post another progress picture when I finish Part 4.

Happy Stitching everyone!
