Once again....

I haven't blogged forever, but I have been doing some stitching. Peppermint Twist is finally nearing completion. I'm ashamed to say I've been working on this since January, I think.

I couldn't wait to start my good friend Jan's, Tree of Life Samplings, Quaker Silence. I'm stitching it on 40 ct Meadow Rue with Belle Soie Mer Blue and a little Icing. I'm loving the way it is looking.

I wanted to share with you part of the Halloween exchange I sent to Sharon. I stitched JBW's Pumpkin for her and finished it as a pinkeep.

I made her a pin cushion using Moda fabric by Blackbird Designs, shamelessly copying one that Tanya made for us a couple of years ago at the OOE retreat. I loved the fabric and after a long search found it at Hancock's of Pacuccah.

Thanks for reading and commenting!

Happy Halloween!

Happy Halloween! Lovely stitching, you are almost finished with PT. I really like your version of Jan's design and can't wait to see your progress.

Wow, Kathy!

Love your version of Jan's Quaker Silence especially with the icing bits! Peppermint Twist is looking grand! Looking forward to seeing a finish shortly!

Love the pin cushion! What is that Moda fabric called?

Your Peppermint Twist is beautiful, Kathy! I need to get mine back out and work on it. Your Halloween stitching for Sharon is fabulous, too! I know she loved it. :)

It seems that Peppermint Twist will be done right for Christmas this year. Isn't that perfect timing?
