No Manifesto Stitching Yesterday!

I didn't get a chance to stitch on my Manifesto yesterday!  There was just too much going on in the World of Holly to pick up a needle yesterday!

Instead of posting a picture of Manifesto, I thought I would share with you a picture of my recently framed Blackbird Designs Christmas Garden...I really enjoyed stitching this one up!  It's a looker!

I apologize for the glare from my camera phone flash!

Until next week......

Happy Stitches,

I'm Ready for my close-up, Mr. DeMille!

Here is a close up of my progress on The Manifesto!  I really didn't get much done yesterday!  I did some stitching....but it is slow going!

For what it is worth....Here she is;)

Happy Stitches,

The folks that know me, know that I love scissors! I love them all!

I just received my newest pair in today's mail from Jean at Attic Needlework.  They are those RED Bohin scissors!  Red is my favorite color!  Red and scissors are meant to be together!  Below is a picture of my new red scissors with my newly completed wool felt pincushion:

Below is a quick snapshot of some of my collection:

Happy Stitches, and Scissors,

See has a Face Lift - Manifesto Progress 4/14/2013

I didn't have much of an opportunity to stitch on Manifesto yesterday, but I was able to give this woeful girl in a red dress a face lift.  I wasn't really happy with the pattern for her face.  She needed a nose job and an eyebrow tweeze!

So, I made her nose more diminutive and a made her eyebrows a bit smaller. Last but not least...I put a smile on her face!

What do you think?

I hope to have more time next Sunday, but we shall see....My husband and I are in the process of decluttering our goes on the market in a few weeks!  Wish me luck!

Happy Stitches,

4/7/2013 Manifesto Progress Pic


Several folks have asked me how I am stitching this....I have mounted my silk gauze to a frame like a needlepoint canvas; however I have put in way more tacks than a needlepoint canvas would have.  In my picture, I show you a picture of the tacks...

I'm coming along!  I didn't get as much done as I had hoped (what's new?), but still moving along.....

Love this piece!

Happy Stitches and until next week,

Easter Day Progress on The Manifesto

I was able to do a little stitching on The Manifesto on Easter Sunday!  I have decided to go all the way down on the left side instead of moving to the right of the upper left hand corner.  When I reach the bottom, I will move to the right.  Everyone is stitching the top portion. So, I thought I would progress from the bottom.

I hope everyone had a wonderful Easter Weekend!  Mine was wonderful!  All the kids came home...this is a rarity and I was thrilled!

Until next week,
