Update on Once Upon A Time

Here is my update on Once Upon A Time. I am really enjoying stitching this one. I love Passione Ricamo but this is my first time stitching one of her designs.
Thanks for all your lovely comments, I enjoy reading them.

Exchange pieces

Above are the exchange pieces I received from Bette.
Aren't they beautiful? She gave me a lovely chart from Imaginating, a pretty piece of blue linen and beautiful threads, frame, M&M's and the prettiest flatfold. I don't have a flat fold and her finishing techniques are impeccable. Below is a close up of the flat fold.

I just love the colors and fabric she chose. Thank you so much Bette.
And below is what I sent to her. I did a L*K design and finished it as a cube and sent some other goodies. I hope she likes them.

It is so nice to finally have that virus gone from my computer. I'm enjoying being able to leave comments on your blogs now.
Thanks for stopping by.
Have a nice weekend, and oh by the way, it's snowing here AGAIN!! Unbelievable :(

Update on Quaker Halloween

This is the Quaker Halloween motif I'm working on for April. I am really enjoying this piece.
Great news......our computer virus is gone!!! My future SIL got rid of it for us :).
A very special friend of mine has started a stitching blog and I hope you'll pay her a visit. Her blog is Wicked Stitching. She is a beautiful stitcher and I know you'll enjoy following her.
Thanks for stopping by, I hope everyone has a great weekend.

New profile pic, update and goals

Well, I finally changed my profile picture. Why in the world did I still have a picture of a snowy tree. So now my profile pic is of the flowers my husband gave me for my birthday.

This is my progress on Once Upon A Time. I'm trying to get to the lower left corner so I can start up the flowered arbor. I want to work on the flowers intermittently as I stitch the rest of the piece (because there are so many of them)

My March goals were:

1. Progress on Once Upon A Time - done

2. Get half of block #7 done on Christmas of Hawk Run Hollow - done

3. Finish 2 exchange pieces - done

4. Finish stitching a Christmas ornie - done

5. Frame "Town" - no

I am still having problems with a virus that won't let me leave comments on your blogs. Once in a while I can so I try to leave as many as I can but it's generally short lived. Please know that I'm reading them. I appreciate ALL of the people who leave comments on mine.

Have a great day.

This is what I woke up to yesterday.....more snow......we got another 8 inches. Yikes, this winter just won't end.

Catherine of Bramblewood Stitches and I decided to do a Spring/Easter exchange and we opened our gifts yesterday. This is what things looked like before I started ripping paper. And here are the beautiful gifts she sent me. She sent a beautiful stitched piece and all these goodies. Here's a close up of what she stitched for me. I love it!
This is what I stitched for her. I sent along some goodies also that she said she liked.

This was my first exchange and I'm so glad I did it with Catherine since she was the first person to leave a comment on my blog when I started it.
