It's been a while....

Ok, so I haven't been real good at keeping up with my blog this year.  But in my defense, I have been stitching more lately.  And I have proof....

This is one of my Crazy January challenge pieces.  It's from My Big Toe designs and it's called "Eat the Chocolate".   Have no idea how I will finish it yet so for now it's in the finished pile waiting to be "finished". 

 This next piece was a PIF chart from a stitchy friend and the chart is on it's way to the next person to stitch it.   I forgot who the designer is on this one.  The fabric is a random piece I found in my stash and I changed the colors for the floss to some fancy brands that I had on hand.  This will be turned into a fancy diva pillow for my craft room. :)

Next we have a small Lizzie Kate piece.   I used a random scrap from my stash and just plain old DMC floss for this one.  This will kinda be a companion piece to a previous LK that I did a few weeks back.  Both will be made into small pillows and will sit in a basket on my hall table.

This next tiny piece is a bonus chart that came with one of the Lizzie Kate boxers.  I wanted to pass the chart on so I quickly stitched this one up.  This will be turned into a pin pillow to go in my hall table basket.
 Next is the little daily SAL from my last blog post.  I finished this weeks ago but just never updated with a new photo.  This will be turned into a pillow using the autism awareness colors.  The picture doesn't do the bright colors justice, but I love the way it turned out.

Lastly is a pillow that I made for a Fall/Halloween exchange in my yahoo group.  This is the first time I did a pillow finish like this.  I love the way it turned out!   I plan to do a few more pillow finishes like this in the future.
See....I have been stitching.   I promise to *try* to update the blog a little better for the rest of the year.  I'm on a UFO finishing kick lately and I'm trying NOT to start any new things for the rest of the year.  Hopefully the next blog update will have a photo of a finished UFO.  No promises though,  you all know I can never stick to my goals.   Hope everyone is enjoying the crisp Fall weather!   Happy Stitching!


  1. All your finishes are beautiful Mary!

  2. Well with fabulous stitching to show we will just have to forgive you for mot blooging! I LOVE that My Big Toe design, I am going to have to get it! The pillow looks gorgeous, how on earth do you tie a bow that neatly? Mine look like a rat has tried to tie it. I'm seriously impressed!

  5. Wow, what a lot of finishes. You've been a busy stitcher lately.

  6. I've been terrible, too, Mary - both at posting and looking at blogs. Just don't take the time to get on the computer like I used to. But I wanted to touch base with some that I love to see. Great finishes!
