Oh for the Love of Stitching

Didn't know what else to use as a title???

A quick post this morning before things get busy here on the farm. We were flood out of our house last spring as most of you know. We had water almost to our rafters in our basement. Thank goodness we just have a cement basement and the only things down there are the furnance and water pressure system. Well after the water was gone we relaced the pressure system so we could have running water but never got the furnace replaced. Finally after a month of heating our house with one Eden Pure electric heater our furnace is being replace today!YA!

In my last post I said I was going to start a Biscornu and I did get it started (sorry no picture of my progress yet). In one of the comments (Sarah) asked which one I was doing. Well I got it from World of BIscornu ( here). I am using DMC verigated blue to stitch it in. I have about half of it done.  I have a lot of Norwegian in me and I have relatives that live there and I have visited Norway in 1993. ( would love to make another trip there). So I thought it fitting to stitch the one from Norway. There are actually several Norwegian patterns on this site but I liked the one with the reindeer on it best.

The reason I am not done with it is because I had to start another piece that I came across it also is a freebie. ( I think i need to stop looking at everyones blogs and seeing such cute stuff) I had seen it on someone elses blog who had stitched it up. But it is one of Brenda Gervais from With Thy Needle and Thread blog ( here ) I started it yesterday and have the pumpkin, stem and leaves done and I am starting on the black bird this morning. ( sorry again no picture yet ) I used a piece of 32 ct fabric that I had in my stash and used the DMC floss that she recommends.

Time to get my chores done so I can sit and stitch the day away. I will post some pictures tomorrow so drop back by.

Have a great Holloween weekend
