Quick update

Good morning everyone!
Here is a picture of my progress on Prairie Garden.
I will be starting the flowers in the second square this morning. 
I am hoping this post turns out ok. I am using my daughters iPad to see if I want to get one for myself. So far I am loving it.
Well nothing else to report today so I'm going to get to stitching.

Happy Stitching

a little of this and a little of that

Good Morning Everyone!
I hope everyone enjoyed their Easter Weekend. I know I did. Had lots of family time.
We have had a few nice warm days here and now today we have rain. But the sun is suppose to shine this afternoon and get into the 60's.


I had a couple of Ladies ask about my floss box
I got it from Hobby Lobby and the brand name is Yarnology. I bought this box special for my We Three Kings project to keep all my supplies organized and in one place. Speaking of We Three Kings, I did work on it but not very much.
I have made a start on the third King
I have been struggling with the dark material and counting and seeing where I need to be so I went in search of some help and this is what I found.
An Ott Light with a small magnifier. You can use it in the stand you see here in the picture or it will clip to the hoop or Qsnap and gives me that extra light I need. A lot easier on my eyes now.

I could not help myself I started another project 
It doesn't look like much yet, but in each square will be some flowers.
This piece is called A Prairie Garden by The Prairie Schooler. I started this on Sunday evening. I need to go to town and get more green floss as I am almost out. So until then I will work on the flowers.

Well thats about it for now,
I will leave you with a few pictures I took on Easter of my family.

King #2 Done - Happy Dance

Good Morning Everyone!
I have an update this morning!

I completed the 2nd king, well the cross stitching and backstitching is done. When I complete the 3rd king I will then add all the beads. I do intend to start the 3rd king today, but not sure how much I will complete this week because of work and activities planned for the evenings and of course this weekend is Easter. I think I will work on We Three Kings until the end of the month and then I will decide if I will keep going on it or go back to American Flag Quilt Sampler.
Thats about it for today.
Happy Easter
and
Happy Stitching

2nd Finish of 2014

Good Morning Everyone!
Beautiful weather the last few days and I it's suppose to stick around. Finally winter is gone!!!!!!

Heres a picture
Bee Joyful
Country Cottage Needleworks
28  ct Lambswool Linen
called for floss
Started - 3-27-14
Finished 4-8-14
I put American Flag Quilt Sampler await for a while and pulled We Three Kings out. Really need to get work done on this piece. 
The middle king is done except for backstitching and beads, the left side king is just about done with the cross stitching part, just have the head and crown  then it will be on to the third and final king. We will see how long I work on it. This material is very hard to work with, slow going!

Well I have some errands to run this morning, and hopefully this afternoon will be filled with stitching.
I will be back Monday with an update on We Three Kings. 

Happy Stitching

Short and Sweet

Good Morning Everyone!
I think spring has finally come to South Dakota! YA!
Yesterday was beautiful, we spent another day at the shop with some of the family. They were on a mission to find as much mud as they could with there 4 wheelers and they succeeded. Then of course we grilled out and filled everyone's belly.
 
Well here is my update for the past week. I have added a little over 1300 stitches to this piece. I wish I had more time,( dividing my time between all my other hobbies is the problem) I feel I should have had this piece done it is such a easy stitch. But any way here is where I am as of this morning.
 
Hope to have this one completed in the next couple of days
 
Well I am off to start my spring cleaning. The entryway (aka mudroom, Laundry room and dogs bedroom) is on the agenda today. Then I give myself permission to sit and stitch this afternoon!
 
Hope everyone has a great week
Happy Stitching
Denise
