Stuff: Wipocalypse update #4

Well I actually  do have four finishes for this month's update...they are all small, but at least I can put one more old WIP in the pile of finished pieces.  I bored with the unsullied white fabric and recently acquired some walnut crystals, so this is the finished result. When I took this out of the hoop I noticed that the border was off a bit on one side and I pondered frogging (for about a fraction of a second) but *&*^ that, I'll just call it "primitive" instead.

It's been another busy month--a rough month, as we lost a family friend to cancer at age 44.  Between that ordeal and the usual work-kids-school nonsense, stitching smalls has been all I have had the time or energy to do.  This was a freebie from the Ravenelle blog.

And another Christmas ornie--Ho Ho Ho in a Row by Lizzie Kate.  I may actually be ready for Christmas this year.

My last small finish.  I have no idea why Blogger does this...I have tried a dozen times to get this to load correctly!  Anyhow this is May Love by Primitive Hare, one of my new favorite designers.  I made this piece for a contest she held (which I didn't win) but it was fun anyway!

As I am close to 200 followers and I have not done anything like this for a long time, I thought I would have a slightly premature 200-follower giveaway for the sideways pillow here and a few other items as well.  Just leave a comment on this post.  No need to advertise on  your blog, I would just as soon have one of my regular visitors win.

And finally, here is the one slightly larger piece that
has been occupying my time--Raven Bewitched
by Blackbird Designs.  I love the colors in this one,
and the ravens too of course :)

Carol of Carol's Stitching very kindly chose my blog
for the Liebster award which has been making the rounds lately, but as it is about time to rouse the kiddies for school I will have to post about that next time..

**Yikes.  forgot to mention that I will draw a winner for the giveway in about a week on the 21st.  Thanks!***

Your stitching is lovely! I need to stitch more small things--I get bogged down on big ones and don't finish! Then I have nothing to show for my time! Congrats on being at 200! I have enjoyed your blog for a while and have now become a follower-Happy Friday the 13th!

You have gotten so much accomplished! I think every single finish is adorable! No way would I have frogged that little bit either - it looks great. Congrats on getting to 200 followers; well done, you!

Have a lovely weekend and thanks for the chance for your sweet, sideways ;-) pillow!

Forget the frogging, it looks great! I have considered stitching Raven by Blackbird Designs. You make it look very tempting!

Deborah said...

I love all the stitching and I wouldn't have frogged that border either. Look forward to seeing progress on the BBD piece. Love the design. I would like to be entered in the giveaway. The pillow is very cute.
