2011 Update

I've updated my 2011 Stitching goals to see what I have done, and what I have left to do.


Wow.  It's just been so busy lately that I haven't had time to collect my thoughts and figure out what I am working on.  I had EGA last week and started the Bargello Christmas Tree.  This will be really cool.  It's also going to be a lot of stitching.  It's a good thing I have until November to complete the stitching!

I picked up a punch needle project that I had started back in the fall and finished it up a few weekends ago.

And while the embroidery on the huck weaving dish towels had been done for a while, I finally got out the sewing machine and hemmed them.  This is the first of my pay-it-forward items and I hope to get that in the mail soon.  I keep forgetting to get an envelope or box for it.

Towel 1 - greens and brown

Towel 2 - Blues and green
And last, but not least I am making Christmas ornaments for the rest of the pay-it-forward items.  Here's the start of ornament number one.

Now that I sit back and look at it, I have been getting a lot of stitching done.  I just didn't realize how much there was.

I did have so much fun making the towels I might make a few more this year.  I'll have to find some more fun huck patters in my stash, and of course I'll need to go get more fabric!
