No hearts for valentine!

But, if you look real close on my ornie you will see two little hearts at the bottom and one on the top. So! Those are my valentine hearts to all of you, my blogging friends.

This is Little House Needleworks first ornament for 2011. It's stitched on 30 ct. flax fields. I'm having a hard time finding the fabric I want to finish it. Hope to get out today...I know it's waiting for me somewhere, but definitely NOT in my stash. My first 2011 finish!

I stitched along with DJ on Heart of America by LHN, but not yet today. Wanted to post the pic so she can see my progress from last Monday.


I've worked on La-D-La's Polly Wolly Doodle All Day just a little.


I stitched hours on Long Dog's Scarlet Ribands and this is all I've got to show for it. I love stitching with Threadgatherers silk n' color, but this piece is slow.


And just look what I found in my lost and found UFO's! This is Moira Blackburn's Time and Seasons, started a long time and many seasons ago. The alphabet is complete and more stitching here and there but scanned what I could in one swipe.


I put it up to do a sal with my stitching buddies group on Moira's Three Things which I finished in 2007. What does that tell you?


Gotta' get ready to go find that fabric.

Happy Valentine's Day!

Babs, ALL your stitching is a feast for the eyes! I sooo enjoyed my visit to your blog - very inspiring! I love every piece you're working on and Tweet is just adorable. I have a Moira Blackburn with a couple of lines done on it that I forgot I even started! Does that tell you anything about MY stitching? LOL!

I just love that Tweet ornament. I had not seen Moira Blackburn charts before, but now they are bookmarked! You do lovely work! Hugs!

Siobhan said...

Great job on Tweet! Your WIPs are GORGEOUS, too! I love your Moira Blackburns. My LNS used to have Time & Season as a model and so I bought the chart years ago but of course have yet to stitch it. Love your WIP of it!

Roberta said...

Great stitching - love Time and Season, have in stash, need to stitch!!

Brigitte said...

Babs, this little finish is so so cute. And it has all the things that many of us stitchers love like birds, bunnies and hearts, no matter how small they are.
All your WIPs are adorable, I particularly love Polly Wolly and Time and Season, of course, as I'm a big MB fan.
