Just A Little Bit Of Stitching

I can honestly say that I have been stitching some. My main focus has been sewing draperies for the living room. I've completed three of the five double panels but I'm not showing any pictures until they're all done.

My blog is decorated for Christmas now, next I'll start on my house. Assuming I can figure out where all the decorations were packed!

Anyway, here's some of what I've been stitching on:

This fabulous ornament was designed by Gloria Moore (Milady's Needle) exclusively for the Tudor Rose Sampler Guild. It's stitched on 40ct linen with Vikki Clayton silks. I loved stitching this!! I have it mounted and just need to attached the twisted cord and hang it on the tree.

Speaking of the sampler guild, here is one version of the official nametag. I have plenty of time to chart and stitch my name before the next meeting.

I'm finally reaching the home stretch on My Big Toe's The Wedding. I did the charting on the center section this morning, so the whole thing should be finished soon. Funny thing, though. It's supposed to be square. I pulled an identified piece of fabric from my stash thinking it was a standard 40 count, but on closer inspection it's more like 38/40. I have no idea where it came from!

BTW, today is the last day to enter the drawing for my giveaway of the Red Is The Rose sampler. Click on this link for details and to enter:

Happy stitching!

These are all beautiful! Your stitching is exquisite, Sherri! I wish mine was half as good, but I only tackle the simple stuff these days, lol!
