Stitchalong with Sticklounge

Here is part 1 and 2 of the Logo stitchalong I'm doing with the German yahoo group Sticklounge.  I'm using Nina's threads in Hackberry on a linen from my stash.  Naturally I didn't label it so I don't know the color name.

This is actually going to be a large circular design.

First up UFO for 2011

Here's the first UFO I'm working on this year.  It's called Snowdrop Hill by the Victoria Sampler.  I'm doing it on a Silkweaver Solo from the stash.

Hope you have a stitchy week!

First New Start for 2011 and first UFO worked on!

Hello Dear Readers!
Here's the first new project of the year for's Mary Poppins and I'm stitching it with the German Yahoo Group Sticklounge.

The rain has washed all the snow away and the roads are clear.
That was nice because I went with my Dad to take my Uncle Dick to the airport this morning to fly back to Puerto Rico where he lives part of the year.  I'll really miss him a lot but I get to see him again in May.   I see on the weather report that the temperature was 79 there today.  I am a little jealous. I miss the briny smell of the sea!

Blogger is only letting me upload 1 picture at the moment so I'll tell you about my first up UFO in the next post.

Until then,

I'm about 1/2 done with the first part.
