Stitching Update

I Just had to have this "Four Corners" by Little House Needleworks (c) 2012 This is part 1 "The Weathervane". I'm stitching it on 18 ct Mocha with the Crescent Colors thread included with the thread pack. I love it!!! It looks so much prettier than the picture. Thank you Diane for this wonderful design. I am so looking forward to stitching part 2 & 3. :D
Also finished is the 4th motif from "Crabby All Year" by Raise The Roof (c) 2007. Teal blue 18 ct fabric and DMC threads.
Poor SAL Surprise from Il blog di Sara (c) 2012 is taking a back burner, but I intend to finish it because I like it. 18 ct white fabric with DMC threads.
I've also gone back to the SAL from Les grilles de Maryse (c) 2011. 18 ct white fabric with DMC threads. I particularly enjoy this one too.
I am working on "Rose Plantation" from Little House Needleworks (c) 2009. I am, however, doing some color changes and chart changes because I'm changing it to Linden Plantation Est 1827 for my DH's family home in Mississippi. :) 28ct evenweave white fabric and HDF silk threads.

My other charts you've heard me mention but not pictured here:
1. Lizzie Kate's Christmas Rules: waiting to be stitched up and bell pulls added for completion.
2. Memorial piece for my dear Wolfgang (cat) is still with my rotation pieces, just on the 'back burner' for now.
3. My Big Toe's Serenity is still there but also on the 'back burner'.
4. Carriage House Samplings Christmas at Hawk Run Hollow - the first motif is there. I've put a few more stitches in it, but it's not worth showing just yet.

Sigh... and that is it for me, for now.
Happy Thursday y'all from Kentucky!
Thanks for stopping by,

Lovely stitching. I especially like Crabby All Year. And I think Four Corners is going to turn out to be stunning.

Cathryn..I too have been working on my SAL from Maryse, but I have a problem. I never received the March pattern. I have January and March finished. Too many times to count I have emailed Maryse and asked her to resend me the march pattern. Have received no response, so that SAL has been put sense in stitching more if I can't get March.
Is there any chance I can buy the March pattern from you? I really love to do houses and the design is so wonderful!
Please contact me at

Thanks...Joanie Robertson

These look marvelous - I was going to get the Rose Plantation piece and change it to Rose Hill Manor for a local historical site. I look forward to your updates on these wonderful projects!
