April IHSW Report

Life around here has been quite busy lately for a number of reasons, & it's going to be even busier these next few weeks, but all things stop for IHSW   : )   I worked as much as I possibly could on Christmas Tea by Plum Street Samplers.  I had hoped to finish it, but I've still got a few snowflakes to take care of.  Despite the drastic color difference between the model photo & what I'm ending up with by following the designer's suggestions, I think I'm going to like it   : )  

Below is the beginning of a Pine Mountain Designs pillow called Winter 9 Patch.  I started this back in January, I think, & I didn't get very far before I decided I did not like stitching it.  If anyone is interested in stitching it, it's yours   : )   If more than one person is interested, I'll throw names in a hat & pick one out when I wake up & stumble over the computer on Friday morning, April 26.  Just mention in your comment that you'd like to have it.  It has everything included except the 2 winter related charms, but you can easily find replacements for those. 
Tha-tha-that's all for this morning!  I'm heading off to Louisville in a few minutes for an appointment with my endodontist to see how my root canal infection surgeries are healing.  I hope I get a good report!

It's a shame you decided you didn't like it, but it happens to all of us. I'm interested in it, but I have a huge stash at the moment, so if anyone is desperately in need of further stash, they're welcome to get priority :)

Winter 9 is really cute. Please throw my name in the hat. I did Christmas Tea on a light blue fiddlers with suggested DMC colors and it came out really nice. I hope you like yours when it is done.

I like Christmas Tea! I may need to get that one! I would love to be consider for the Pine Mtn pillow. I have stitched a few of these (not the same design) in the past but gave them away as gifts.

Oh, how pretty, Shirlee--I really love this one!!

Hope your appointment went well--can't imagine all those visits to the dentist that you've had to deal with over the past year. Ugh!

Marie said...

Christmas Tea looks wonderful!

Ohhhhh...don't mention root canal. I was at the dentist with a strange feeling on a back tooth and he said I might be looking at a root canal. Nooooo, I had one of those many years ago and it was WAY TOO painful!

I hope all goes well for you.

Jo who can't think of a clever nickname said...

I'm with you on the small blue piece, I'd get bored of the background stitching and break out my felt tip pens again!

Glad to see that other people are happy to rehome it.

Myra said...
