OMG where has the time gone????

I am just not dedicated, that is my story and I am sticking to it!

So rather than make excuses, I am just going to pick me up and keep going.

UPDATE: I have been stitching some, and crocheting some, and we've all been sick off and on, but better now. I have one project completely finished:

This is a gift for a good friend of mine.

I am also finished with another gift for another friend but I haven't framed it yet. I was going to wait until it was framed, but it came out so good I can't wait!

This is called "Eloquent Christmas"

I dyed the fabric myself. It is 28 ct evenweave, dyed with Rit red. It is the first time I have used beads and I am just so very pleased with how it came out. My friend has no idea that I have stitched this for her! When it is framed I will post the final outcome.

Guess I had better get back to work. I am going to really try to stay on top of this going forward...

Hope everyone is having a good holiday season, getting your shopping done, and staying out of the way of the crazies that seem to be out in very large vehicles!

  1. Love the box, the tree is great. How cool that you dyed your own. You did a great job, and such a pretty color.


  2. Your work is beautiful. Would you please share the pattern and designer name for the cube? I don't think I've seen it anywhere else.


  3. I love them both! So very Christmas-y!!

  4. The pattern was a kit, and I will have to look at it at home to tell you who it was. I got the instructions for the finish from this website:
    I used a ribbon instead of fabric for the wraparound.

  5. Your projects look great, Laura. Keep up the good work!

  6. Very pretty, both of them! Congrats on your finishes.

  7. Great stitching and the fabric that you dyed is beautiful.
