1  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Discussion and Questions / Christmas At Hawk Run Hollow on: January 30, 2014 01:17:18 PM
Picked this back up after fizzling out on stitching all of the snow in Block Two. FINALLY finished that up yesterday, so I'm back to stitching on a HAED again (http://heavenandearthdesigns.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=604_85&products_id=2675).

This is my Christmas at Hawk Run Hollow piece, Blocks One through Three. Here are the deets:

Design: Christmas at Hawk Run Hollow

Designer: Carriage House Samplings

Fabric: 40 count Picture This Plus Newcastle linen in Legacy

Fibers Used: Needlepoint, Inc. silk flosses in 123, 124, 127, 128, 155A, 158, 159, 184A, 186, 204, 206, 241, 242, 244, 251, 293, 303, 313, 316, 331, 345, 401, 422, 473, 475, 512, 523, 524A, 526, 527, 548, 556, 587, 623, 636, 671, 692, 693, 694, 695, 722, 724, 725, 765, 767, 856, 867, 871, 902, 912, 928, 951, 957, 963, 972, 976, 982, 987, 991BB, and 993. The Thread Gatherer's Silk n' Colors #035 Mint Frost.

Stitcher's Notes: Stitched a tiny 'W' for the gate. I let DH choose which house would be 'ours' in this piece and he really liked the house in block two over the one in block four. Letter taken from the book
ABC Miniatures au point de croix by Franoise Prax for Marabout.

And here is a picture of Blocks One through Three shown together:

3  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Discussion and Questions / Latest Work In Progress on: September 28, 2010 12:52:51 PM
Here is a picture of my latest cross stitch piece. Progress has slowed down a lot due to my starting a new job in massage therapy within the last month and I'm generally too sore and tired when I come home at night to stitch.  Undecided

At any rate, here's the picture and my mats list: Smiley

5  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / XS Finish on: April 27, 2010 09:55:14 PM
Here is my latest cross stitch finish. The pattern is by SanMan Originals and it is a Member Only pattern. It was a SAL for the members of the board and I had such a good time picking things out. I didn't follow the suggested threads, but instead opened up my bins of stash and chose the fibers and things I would use on the fly. Smiley

Here is the completed finish:

6  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Latest Card Finish on: April 27, 2010 09:49:07 PM

This is my third or fourth card I ever made. I have absolutely no clue what I am doing when i do these things. I just put stuff where I think it doesn't look too lame and tack it down!  Cheesy

7  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / My Latest Finish on: April 12, 2010 10:14:34 AM
Had a one day start and finish yesterday. It's a 5 part SAL for Members Only at the http://www.sanmanoriginals.com/ boards. (If you'd like to become a member, please sign up here: http://www.sanmanoriginals.com/forum/profile.php?mode=register&sid=dc6203cece37324ac6c905109d14ec2f).

And since I cannot leave well enough alone at times, I completely changed the fibers and fabric that were suggested in the original patterns.  Shocked

Here are my stitchy notes:

Design: Four Seasons Fatties SAL

Designer: Sandra Dering of SanMan Originals

Fabric: 28 count white evenweave (possibly Lugana)

Fibers: DMC numbers 51, 111, 115, 310, and 317. Anchor numbers 295 and 801. Kreinik Very Fine Braid #4 in 150V.

Accouterments: Mill Hill beads in in #00556.

Here is a pic of the Spring, Summer, and Autumn Blocks completed, plus the border:

8  NEWS AND DISCUSSION ABOUT CRAFTSTER / Introduce Yourself / Hi all! :) on: April 03, 2010 08:57:58 AM
Just thought I would take a moment to introduce myself.

I am new to the Craftster community, but I've been cross stitching for about 15 years now. I've also dabbled in SRE, hand embroidery, decoupage, and sewing. This year I am looking to try beading and card making. I really like the community so far and I look forward to contributing and learning from you all! Smiley
