My Frederick.....

CHS "Frederick"
Stitched on 40ct. LL Pearled Barley
w/ DMC

I can truly say this is one of my favorite finishes. 
I always amazed how the colors come together
to form such a beautiful color palette.  

The cover picture of this design does
not do it justice.
Sporting his VT colors....could he be a hokie?

I just love him in this wonderful
color combination.
freds duo2
Such a beautiful pair!

These two are already off to be dressed in their
finest and I hope to have them hanging on
my wall this time next week!

appreciative of all of my visitors and the
time you take to leave a comment.
Thank you!

Wishing you a great stitchy week!

November's ornament.....

Nov ornament
"Snowflakes" freebie from
Stitched on 32ct. linen with
NeedleNecessities 120

I found these wonderful freebies last
week and just had to stitch them up
for this month's ornament. 

So simple yet wonderful to stitch. 

I did add the little border around the edge
so I could finish with a scalloped edge

I really like the way they turned out
so don't be surprised if you see this again.

So....this month's lucky exchange partner is.....

I do hope all of my American friends had
a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday. 

andy cake (2)
He's my favorite Clemson Tiger!

We had an extra celebration since it was
my hubby's birthday so my mom
was sweet enough to get him a cake.

Well....I'm off to stitch!   Hope you have a
wonderful weekend full of stitches.

I have been stitching away on CHS "Frederick"
but couldn't resist the urge to stitch this
ornament after seeing  Lee's (Lake Stitcher)
wonderful adaptation, which I just loved by the
way.   Yes, I just had to order the PTP Phoenix fabric to "borrow" Lee's colorway, but I
decided to play with this brown linen
while I waiting on my order.

Joy in the Snowflake

Little by Little "Joy in the Snowflake"
2011 JCS Ornament issue
32 ct. brown linen w/ Victorian Motto threads

This has to be one of my favorite designs in
the new JCS ornament issue.  Although I love
the suggested thread colors, I am very pleased
with the look of the red and cream on the
brown linen.  Too large to be an ornament,
this will become a little pillow to tuck
away in a basket this holiday.

blue joy
Yummy blue from Victorian Motto!

This was a pretty quick stitch and since I
love the original blue/brown combo, I now
want to stitch it again with blue on the brown
linen.  I also got my red fabric so I will be
stitching it using Lee's green/creme colorway! 

Good thing I like this ornament!

These will have to wait though.....
I am determined to finish Frederick first!

BBD Strawberries
Wild Berry Strawberry emery
From BBD "Joyeux Noel"
Stitched on 32ct linen w/DMC

I couldn't resist stitching these cute
designs any longer.   I used wool felt for
the tops and "cheated" by using my
Big Kick to cut out the top design. 
These were so easy to stitch up and I 
hope to stitch up a few more .

I am trying so hard to finish up at least 2
of  my January Crazy Challenge designs.   
I have been stitching all week on
CHS "Frederick" and it has been slow
going, but every stitch counts, 
so I am off to put in a few more.

I am thankful for all of the sweet comments I
received over some recent finishes.  As always,
I do appreciate you take the time to visit
and hope you have a great week.

happy stitching...
