Running StitchEvening all,

I have refound one of my favorite sites.  It’s http://pintangle.com/category/challenges/take-a-stitch-tuesday/ .

Here is my first stitch, a little late, but hey……..

Boy, I think it will take me all year to figure out how to upload photos faster.

I think I have had enough snow for this winter.  I couldn’t get to work Thursday, and although it was nice sleeping in a little, I still had to dig my car out for work Friday.  But I did get a little stitching and finished Lady Scarlet’s Journey 3 part bell pull.

This is my Stitch 100 Beaded Eastern Stitch.  I liked experimenting with making each flower different.

Off to do more stitching – I’m now working on “E” Is For Egg by Sandra Cox Vanosdall from The Sweetheart Tree.

Thanks for looking at my stitch.

Good evening, everyone. Finally getting back into the swing of things. I had to buy a new battery charger for the camera, one of the cats must of played with it and I could not find it.

So, this is my example of Take a Stitch Tuesday 97 Shell Chain and 98 Beaded Shell Chain Stitch. Okay, now I see I only did Stitch 98.

Now I’ve got to remember how to link everything.

Off to watch the Olympics!

Hey there, everyone.

I really had fun working Stitch 61 – Up and Down Feathered Buttonhole Stitch. Today was a nice, quiet day – had the baseball game on for a little bit – but I turned it off, just in case I jinxed them into losing.

Now I can go back to the lighthouse one and do some more stitching on that.

Take care,

Good evening. It is Sunday, and I have finally caught up on all the TAST Stitches. This is my sample of Stitch 60 – Diamond Stitch. I like using the variegated threads. These are colors that I bought somewhere in the 80’s. I was trying to make it curve a little, but with practice (and drawing it out on a sheet) I will get it.

Saturday was a great day. I (with Ellen’s help) started a get together for stitchers, knitters, crochetters with a meeting in our local library. Although only two people came and sat with us, a few more stuck their heads in to see what it was all about. Our next meeting is 18 May at 1PM.

Anyways, this is it for this post. More later,
