Teresa Wentzler's Heart Sampler Progress

Tuesday, February 19, 2008

I'm feeling like I am making some good progress on this. It does stitch up really quick. For this band I still have the Queen Stitches to do and I'd like to finish up half the heart borders on each side, I'm hoping to finish the stitching minus the hardanger and the beading by the end of this month.

Illuminated House Blessing Progress

As soon as I recieved the chart of Patricia Andrle's Illuminated House Blessing, I started stitching on it right away. Here's my first progress pic after only 2 hours of stitching. The colors are beautiful.

'Love Bag' Victoria Sampler HD

Friday, February 15, 2008

For my son's teacher I wanted to make her something for Valentine's Day, and I came across this free design by Victoria Sampler, 'Love Bag'. I happened to have all the supplies allready. I used the DMC threads called for in the design, but I'd like to use some silks for the one I want to keep for myself. The gold sparklies don't show too good in the photo. They have such a pretty effect with the deep rose, and the white satin stitch in the bottom row, make a nice lacey effect. Then I stuffed in a couple DOVE Dark chocolates for her, and couldn't help but eat a couple myself.

Father Winter Ornament HD

Last night, I finished putting on the last bead. It is really stunning. My photo doesn't do it justice.


Now I am working on The 1st of the 12 Day ornaments from Teresa Wentzler. Another project I started is her Heart Sampler which is stiching along faster than I thought. I should have progress pics of both of them some time next week.
