Welcome to Cranberry Samplings

Saturday, March 26, 2011

It's been another busy bunch of days. Did go to stitching on Wednesday,which was fun. Also had all my female type Doctors Appointments. Have to do them but don't like them. At least they are done for another year. I finished an exchange piece this week. It will be my first exchange and I am looking forward to it. I am having a lazy week end which translates to alot of stitching. I think that I will finish this tomorrow and will make it into a small pillow. The fabric looks dark but it's not. The design is Gathering Basket by BBD using 32 ct. Autumn Blush with CC fibers.
Picked this up this week. I really like the simple white frame.

Forgive me, my pictures are out of order. I finished this great design from BBD. It's in the new book of theirs. I used 32 ct Confederate Gray with the suggested GA floss called uniform blue. Things work up really quickly when you do not have to change colors. I think that I will have a frame made for this one.
I also picked up this one. It's small and I had a pop in and out frame made for the series. It will live in my craft room on a book shelf. I do have some fun stuff coming up this week. Hope to go antiquing this week with Cheryl and next Saturday is going to be a wonderful day for the Wednesday stitching group. More to come later.
Thanks for all the great comments, I love them. Hope you all are having a great week end. Until next time....Happy Stitching! Deborah

Wow you have been busy! I love them all but I really love the seaside one. Living by the seaside this is a must stitch for me from that book:)

Lovely stitching. Your framed pieces look gorgeous.

I really love that gathering basket piece - the colors are so soothing. Love the framed pieces too. I will be stitching that Sea piece from the new book - I remember seeing it on your blog (I think it was here) some time ago and have loved it ever since.

It's always a pleasure to visit and see what you've been up to for the week, Deborah... Your little May DT is so cute--great idea to use the same frame for the series. And I love the bluebird (of course--anything blue appeals to me!) in his white frame. I should pull that chart and stitch it this spring...

Have a great week :)

I simply LOVE your monthly DT finishes. How cute and they can be placed just about anywhere in the house. Let me know if you are willing to part with any of the charts... I will gladly buy them from you.

Wow you have had some busy days! Great finishes. They are all so pretty. I just love working with a single color piece too. It's a nice change to not have to worry about color changes.

Every one is super. I always have stitch envy when I see your pieces! Your stitching is so inspiring and spurs me on to try to finish more of my own stuff. Thanks for sharing it all.

I hear you on 'those' types of doctor's appointments. I dread mine every year, but since having kids I am not so concerned about them.

You have some beautiful stitching there, they are all so wonderful.
