Welcome to Cranberry Samplings

Thursday, October 7, 2010

I won Donna's Blogoversary giveaway over at her blog Needleworker not in Paradise! I was overwhelmed by her generosity. I received 5 designs. Three of them came with fabric and floss. My fav is a Most Noble Pursuit and it came with a beautiful piece of 36 ct. LSL. I hope to start this one soon. Thanks Donna!
This is my current WIP. It's Scarlet's Christmas Sampler. I have loved working on this piece. The colors are nice and it's a quick stitch. I just have to do the over one stitching, which are the words and a potted tree. I really enjoy doing over one stitching.

Spent alittle time visiting my sewing machine and Cheryl today. We went out to lunch and did some errands but did find some time to get this pillow done. I am love with the pom-poms. What do you think?
Let me answer some questions from my last post. I was asked about how quickly I finished my projects. I have always been very fast. Stitching is my therapy and I must try to stitch everyday. I usually stitch just at night. If I have some time during the day, I will do some but life usually gets in the way.
I want to thank every one for the kind comments on the decorations. I was asked about some of the figurines. They are Jim Shore and Williraye's. I have collected both for years. I appreciate and love all the comments that you leave. Til next time--Happy Stitching

Congratulations on your win. Most Noble Pursuit looks very interesting - along the lines of Christmas at Hawk Run Hollow. I like the colours in your wip too. Love the Jingle Jingle - it is sooo cute and the pom poms look right with it too.

Congrats on your wins lately - luck is on your side! I am glad to hear your doggie is doing better. Love, LOVE your Halloween finishes - I have Jenny Bean started, but not finished. Your BBD Midnight Watch and your Quaker Boo are adorable! I love the pillow in your header which has Witche's Brew at the top - I have a similiar one with a snowman recipie and wonder if it's the same - but I don't know who made/designed your Halloween one. Do you happen to remember the designer? Love your Halloween decorations!!

Kathy Ellen said...

Congratulations on winning Donna's Blogoversary with so many wonderful projects. It must be really difficult to choose which one to stitch. I think that I would be inspired to stitch "A Most Noble Pursuit" soon! Love the colors in Scarlett's Christmas Sampler. Have fun with all of your stitching...what a blessing to be a "fast stitcher"!
