Before we start, I have a favor to ask. I am looking for a Cross-eyed Cricket pattern, Leaflet 171 called Green Thumb. Is there anyone out there that wants to part with it? I've got a ton of stash to trade or if you want, I can pay a reasonable price...let me know, K?
Now for the pictures...TA DAA!!!!
Here's my OLDEST WIP and it' now finished! I can't believe that I waited over 25 years to finish it. Granted, I had the unfortunate red candle incident but still...
Leisure Arts #280
14ct. White Aida
Alphabet Sampler Bottom
Alphabet Sampler Top
This is the Merrily Beam's Sampler I'm stitching for Lee's "Older But Better" SAL. You can see it in all it's 1980's funky colors. But I like it!
Done By Me - 1982
32ct Flax Linen
I worked a little on the Bee Man tonight - I've stitched most of the verse. I really, really like this sampler and now, I'm looking all over the internet looking for more patterns with Bee Skeps.

The Goode Huswife
32ct Vintage Country Mocha
Lastly is I Sigh not for Beauty that I'm stitching as a year long SAL with Ellen Chester's With Thy Needle and Pen's group. I'm hopelessly behind now but I have to be in the right frame of mind to stitch on her. I don't mind the arcaded border but those pomegranate flowers..oh my, they tax my patience.

32ct Antique Ivory
DMCAnd the Wips, that were finished a long time ago, soon to be made into pinpillows and pinkeeps:
32ct Flax Linen
Crescent Color Overdyes - Cotton
Ewe and Eye and Friends
32ct Lambswool Linen
So, that's all folks, I hope you like what I've done. I'd write more but I have to go to sleep. I'm tired. I've been up late going through job boards looking for work. So far nada, zilch, and zero. I've applied to a few local companies but I don't think I'm even going to get a second look. Sigh.
Thanks for stopping by....love to have you visit!
