My V Stitch Crochet Afghan Progress

Progress on my V Stitch Crochet Afghan using Baby Rainbow Yarn by Caron - Using Size H Crochet Hook - Sunday Feb 17, 2019

Crochet - V Stitch
Afghan 
Size H Crochet Hook
Yarn - Baby Rainbow by Caron

I am making this Afghan for ME.  I am using the V Stitch in my Afghan.  I have the Width that I want so now I just need the length.  It is going to be real long.  I love real long blankets and afghans more than the width of them.  

I bought the Yarn at JoAnn Fabrics.  I love JoAnn Fabrics.  They got everything that I need.  

I am on my 18th Row now.  I work on this every day.  On Saturdays at my Library we have a Crochet - Knitting - Sewing Group that meets at 10 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. I love this group.  We learn so much from each other.  

I am going to learn to Knit as well too.  I do know how to Cast on and I know how to do the Knit Stitch.  I just want to make sure that I am doing everything right by my Knitting Teacher.  

We are suppose to get 1 to 3 inches of Snow sometime today and tonight.  I hope it is only a inch.  I prefer None whatsoever.  

Yesterday at my Library we had the Ribbon Cutting Ceremony and Open House.  It was so nice and I love my New Library in my town.  It is so big and very roomy and the colors are just beautiful.  I can sit on the Couch by the Fireplace - Crochet - Knit - Stitch.  I can go in the teen room and sit and do my own thing.  I love it.  I am in 7th Heaven when I go to the Library.  I always stay from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.  That is when it is peaceful and quiet and I can go in the teen room if I want more Privacy.  

That is all for now....Thanks for looking and reading my Blog Post.  

I want to thank each and everyone of you that has left comments on my previous Blog Posts.  Thank you from the bottom of my Heart.  

God Bless You

Pumpkin Hallow Farm Progress

Progress on Pumpkin Hallow Farm by Little House Needleworks - Friday Feb 15, 2019

Pumpkin Hallow Farm 
Little House Needleworks

14 Count White Aida
2 x 1 Full Cross Stitch

I am really enjoying stitching this.  It is so easy....so fun to stitch and easy on my eyes.  I won this Chart from Real Housewives of Cross Stitch You Tube Video - Chelsea and Priscilla You Tube Channel.  I had to answer a question in one of their Videos and I won this Chart.  

I have changed the Colors of the House, The Roof,  The Grass.  I do not like Drab Colors so I changed to brighter spring like colors even though it is a fallish type pattern.  I am leaving the Witch out of this pattern and the Birds are going to be Red instead of Black.  Red is the color of Cardinals and the Cardinal is Indiana State Bird.  

My house use to be Blue but now it has Tan Siding on my house and Blue is my favorite color.  

I love how this is turning out.  It is so pretty.  I am getting anxious to get this finish and get it framed and hung up on my Wall.   

When I finish this I will post all of the color changes that I used for this Chart.  

Thanks for looking :)

QS Library Fairy 5 Progress

Progress as of Wednesday Feb 13, 2019 - Artist is Randal Spangler - Designer is Michele Sayetta - HAED Chart

QS Library Fairy 5
Artist is Randal Spangler
Designer is Michele Sayetta 
Heaven and Earth Designs Chart

28 Count White Jobelan
1 x 1 Full Cross Stitch

I love this Pattern.  It is so cool and so awesome looking.  I am making this for my New Library in my Town.  I did not get this done in time for the Ribbon Cutting Ceremony and the Open House.  

I am on Page 2 out of 9 Pages.  Her Head, Hair, Face was very hard to do.  Confetti Stitching in every single square...UGH!  Her Wings were not too bad.  

I stitch on this every day for a while.  I don't get very far on it because I only stitch from start to finish in one Block at a time so I do not make any mistakes.  You don't dare make any mistakes in this pattern because each stitch makes the design and in order for it to come out right you have to be very careful in not making any mistakes.  

I am hoping to have this one by the end of this summer.  

Thanks for looking :)

Beyond Spring Gate by Thomas Kinkade Progress

Progress on Beyond Spring Gate by Thomas Kinkade - Friday Feb 1, 2019

Beyond Spring Gate
by Thomas Kinkade

14 Count Aida - 2 x 1 Full Cross Stitch

I have had this started since 2010 and I had most of what you see done.  I decided to pull this out last night and start working on it again so I can get this one done this year.  I mostly stitched on the bottom section last night.  

I dearly love this...it is a fun piece to stitch.  There are tons of French Knots - Back Stitching - Blending Threads - Blending Filament in this.  What you see is the left side of the Pattern of which I got some of it done.  I will finish the left side and work my way up to the top of the left side and than on over to the right side.  Most of the French Knots are done in this section.  There are a few here and there but not like it was last night.  

Thanks for looking...

God Bless You

14 Count White Aida 

2 x 1 Full Cross Stitch

This is my New Start for January - I wanted something easy to stitch since most of mine are all BAP's hard to do.  I found this in my Stash so I pulled this pattern out...I got my Fabric from my Stash so I started in last week and this is how much I got done on this so far.  I love this pattern.  I am using DMC Threads instead of the Called For Threads.  I cannot afford to buy the Fancy Floss and I like to wash my pieces after I get done stitching.  This one is for me.  

Thanks for looking....

Start Of A Spider Web Triangle

Start on another Triangle for my Spider Web Quilt - Friday Jan 25, 2019

This is in my Craft - Sewing - Stitching - Quilting Room.  This is the Start of another Triangle for my Spider Web Quilt.  

I am hand sewing all of the strips of Fabric onto the Webbing which does not come off.  I leave the Webbing right on there.  

I love making these Triangles.  The Hardest part is sewing the Triangles together so it will look like a Spider Web.  I think it takes 4 Triangles to make one 9 inch block of a Spider Web.  The Center of all of the Triangles are Red.  

Thanks for all of the Comments and for all of my New Followers.  Thank you so very much.  

Thanks for looking.....
