The Grateful Post

Went to Hobby Lobby to procure some Kreinik #4 001 silver braid and found that they were having a sale on picture frames. Looked around for a minute and saw one that I thought would look good with the recently completed Prairie Schooler Christmas Cabin . I got the frame at a VERY reasonable price and got it all framed up and ready to go. All I need to do now is to make the Christmas card and wrap it up all pretty and send it off to its’ recipient! I also need to make one for DH and myself. Last night he commented that it was too pretty to give it away, LOL! I told him I need to go to Stitcher's Paradise and get some more fabric and some more Access Commodities Soie d'Alger. If I stitch the design as completed, I will need quite a large piece of fabric. Oh, woe is me, LOL!

At any rate, here’s the fun bits!

Design: Christmas Samplers II (Book No. 73)

Designer: The Prairie Schooler

Fabric: 28 count linen/silk blend in Natural by Wichelt

Fibers: Access Commodities Soie d'Alger in Blanc, 942, 1716, 1836, 2242, 2246, 2756,4126 and 4534.

Here is another start, LOL! Don't think I will get it done today, as I have some stuff to do today and I'm feeling really, really lazy! :)

Here are the stitchy notes and pic!

Design: Give Thanks

Designer: The Stitcherhood

Fabric: 25 count raw Dublin linen by Zweigart

Fibers: Carrie’s Creations in Coffee and Fall Splendor

Well, I need to go for now. I hope everyone is enjoying the holiday today!
