Springtime Breezes







Back from the Framers. This piece is Designed
By CherryWood Design Studios.
Spring sneezes. This was done on a hand dyed
pink linen. A really cute piece. This will be great
for the spring time.(Which I wish was here already).

The second piece is a piece I received in an exchange.
The piece was done by Lynn. I love the finishing.
All the beads really make this piece. This is from
my HOE group.

November 1st in two more days. How is that possible?
The holiday season will be upon us.

New York City




Today I took a day trip into NYC. I went to one of
my favorite restaurants Gotham Bar and Grill.
The first photos is blackened Cod with a Soy
Ginger Sauce, with bok choy, sticky rice, and
wild mushrooms. Oh so yummy. The second
photo is Tuna Tartare. No one makes it like
Gotham. After the big lunch, I headed over to
the City quilter where I picked up some fabrics.
Next I headed over to the garment district for
all of my cordings and trimmings. I love my city.
It was a great day in The Big Apple.

Good tidings to you

























Good tidings to you is from the JCS 2011
ornament issue. The fabric I used to make this into a pillow
couldn't be more perfect. I added mill hill beads to the
wreath. These extra touches is what makes all ornaments
different. I really enjoyed doing this piece. This is a gift for
a stitcher. I am sure they will enjoy it. The holiday season
is all about giving for me. It gives me great joy to give to other people.

Two new finishes





The first piece is a pattern By Just Nan
Called Christmas Cheer. I did tweek the
pattern as I sometimes do. This will be
a gift for someone. The second piece
is a Pattern by 4 my boys and is called
My first gray Hare. I finished this
pattern months ago and couldn't find
the piece. I came upon it in a drawer
I never put any cross stitch in. A
senior moment and I am not even close
to being a senior yet. I have started
my christmas gifts.
