Picture Time







I signed up for Up for the Challenge - to finish WIP's in 2011. I did name 15, which is more or less about what's there that I really want to see done. The oldest is The Barnraising, which is a MLI design. As you can see Ruth, the barn is done - it's the men and women that need done!!






The Cleveland design is from Oberlin Stitches and has Cleveland landmarks around the letters tha spell out the city where I was born. As I mentioned before, this is for a woman I went to school with in Cleveland and now lives in Australia. She and I re-connected several years ago through the Internet. The backstitching and confetti stitches made me put it in the drawer.


And last is a street scene from Bethany Beach DE - from the LNS there. My secretary and I each are doing one side of the street for a mutual friend who loves to vacation there. This will be the LAST time I stitch on Cork linen - trust me!
Next time - some finishes!

Stay warm and safe.

  1. Hey...I have the Barn Raising somewhere in my stash! I loved those TIAG designs.

  2. It's fun to see what WIPs you've pulled out to work on during the challenge, Linda. I also have the Barn Raising (well, I have most of those TIAG charts). I stitched two, Blueberry Homecoming and Bird in Hand but never framed them. That is MY problem--finishing but not framing; I actually have only one or two WIPs laying around the house :)

  3. Thanks for sharing your WIPs! The Barnraising made me chuckle - the men just stading around with no bottoms!

  4. So, Cork linen is out is it? :) That's allowed. Although I have to say that sreet is pretty marvelous looking. I'd like to stroll and shop there. It's the kind of place that looks like it has a good bakery, nice bookshop, and a little stash palace just waiting for me... err people. :)

    Good luck on your 15!

  5. I really like the Cleveland design. I don't live there anymore, but it's where I was born and grew up.
