Daisy Offerings

HAED

Artist is Sandra Kuck

Designer is Michele Sayetta

18 Count Aida - Charles Craft - 2 x 1 Full Cross Stitch

Pages One Through Seven are now completely Finished - YEAH :)  I am so happy about this progress.  YES!  

   The Top Edging - that is all Confetti Stitching every single square.  I was about ready to go nuts by the time I got this far due to all of the Confetti that I had to do but it is well worth every single Confetti Square.  

   There are 36 Pages in total for this Pattern and this pattern is no longer available.  It is out of Print.  This is a picture of a little girl in the middle of the Sky throwing Daisies down on the Earth.  I have a friend whose daughter is named Daisy so that is why I am doing this but since I have started this pattern long time ago and my friend's father passed away.  Since than his kids don't want nothing to do with me so I think I am going to just keep this one myself - get it framed - and hang it in my bedroom.  I work too hard on this to just give it away.  If my friend was still alive I would give it to him and to his wife.  

I have started on Page 8 since this Photo was taken.  It is now mostly solid stitching and very little of Confetti Stitching.  Page 9 will be exciting to stitch.  

This is my very first HAED Pattern that I have ever started and I am hoping to have this done this year sometime or maybe the first of next year.  

In case you don't know what HAED stands for it is Heaven And Earth Designs.  You can order their charts directly from them.  Right now they are having a Sale until tomorrow night.  I bought another Chart off of my Wish List called Arches Two and it is a picture of Arches with Flowers, Benches, Cat, and so forth.  I am making this one for my friend whose Side Yard looks just like the pattern.  

Have a Beautiful Sunday

Easter Celebration Progress Photo

Easter Celebration by Barbara Sestok - Saturday March 18, 2017

Easter Celebration 
Designer - Barbara Sestok

28 Count 2 x 2 Full Cross Stitch

This Pattern was already started when I went to pick it up from my LNS.  The Lady that started this has passed away and I inhherited some of her unfinished projects and this is one of them.  She did not have much done on this.  Most of the Stitching is what I have done so far.  I just have two big flowers to do on the left side and than the rest of the back stitching to do.  I am almost done with this one.  

When I am done I am going to put the lady's initials first and than mine and get this one framed and hung up on my wall in the living room.  I enjoy stitching on this.  It is so very pretty and I will have it done just in time too.  I just love this Pattern.  

The Pattern is from the 2014 Cross Stitch & Needlework Keepsake Calendar if you want to know where it is from.  There are many other patterns from this particular Calendar that I want to stitch.  I love stitching Patterns like this.  This is why I love Stoney Creek Patterns because they are similar to this one.  

I don't know what the name of the Fabric is since I got this from the lady that has passed away about 3 years ago.  

I should be done with the Flowers by tomorrow night.  Since this Photo has been taken I already got the biggest Flower all done except for the Back Stitching so I just have the smaller flower to do yet and than the back stitching.  

That is all for now....

God Bless You

A Mothers Kiss A Fathers Touch

Heaven And Earth Design Pattern

Artist - Schim Schimmel

Designer - Michele Sayetta

25 Count White Lugana 1 x 1 Full Cross Stitch

This is my progress on this.  I dearly love stitching on this project.  It is a Heaven And Earth Design Pattern.  I dearly love their Patterns.  They are pretty easy to stitch.  As you can see I have some of the Stars finished and they are really showing up against the Black Background.  The Background is all Black and Very Dark Blue among the Stars.  I am almost done with Page One.  I stayed up til 2 a.m. this morning stitching on this one.  

We had weird weather yesterday - it turn very cold and it was snowing on and off all day yesterday and last night.  Now today it is suppose to be up in the 40's - 50's so we shall see.  The Temp got down to 25 Degrees F Above Zero last night.  Now that is what I call Cold.  It got pretty darn cold out last night.  

The Book that I am currently reading is called "The Chocolate Moose Motive" by JoAnna Carl.  I am more than half way done with this book.  It is really good.  I am really enjoying this book.  

I did not go to Church this morning or to Sunday School...it is too cold for me to be out in this Frigid Cold Weather.  

That is all for now....

Happy Sunday

God Bless You

This is my progress on Easter Celebration - I am almost done with the Right Side of Mr. Bunny Rabbit - Mr. Peter Cottontail.  Than I will finish up with the Left Side of him.  Than all I got left of him to do is the Back Stitching.  Yeah!  

We have been having Weird Weather lately....it has been in the 60's all week long.  Today we get Thunderstorms and than right after the Thunderstorms we are getting really cold weather - clear down in the 30's.  This coming week we are suppose to be getting Snow.  Oh Lovely!  

I did manage to go to my favorite Library last Monday and spent the Entire day there.  I got three books and several magazines.  The Book that I am currently reading is called "The Chocolate Moose Motive by JoAnna Carl.  I am really enjoying this book.  Mondays are my Library Days as long as the weather is okay.  

Not much else is going on....that is about it for me.
