january 10 - game day

Today's the day of the "Big Game" - Oregon vs. Auburn for the BCS national championship. So everyone (or nearly everyone) in Oregon is a Ducks fan today. Can't wait to get home, grab a sandwich and settle in with my stitching and football! So today's start is Waiting for the Harvest from Blackbird Designs. I received a piece of black fabric and beautiful autumn colored silks in an exchange last year, and I thought they would be perfect for this design. We'll see how far I get tonight! My grandson spent a good part of the weekend with us, so not many stitches were stitched, but he is such a joy and we had a blast together. He makes me laugh all the time! On Saturday, my start was this Lizzie Kate design from the "boxer" series...Did you ever stop & think... Sunday's start was Olde Pewter Letters from primitivebettys. I love this design and have wanted to start it for quite some time. And finally, these are two blocks stitched for a block exchange with the Stitchers Timeout group. We do one block every other month. I wanted to get a head start on these because I knew I had signed up for these crazy challenges and would be busy busy busy. I actually stitched these two at the very end of last year. We can use any kind of fabric and threads we want...I stitched both of these on fiddler's cloth. January's theme is "chocolate" and this is a Lizzie Kate design. March's theme is Prairie Schooler.

Go Ducks! Thanks for visiting!


  1. Your WIPs are coming along great!

  2. I think the BBD will look great on black fabric with fall colors for threads. Look forward to seeing it.

  3. Hi can't wait to see the photo on the waiting for harvest and I love the lizzie kate one . Nice colours for the primitivebettys too :)

    Great progress and finishes.

  5. Hi Lynda, just read your comment on my blog...would love to stitch along with you on Apple Tree Sampler. I won't stitch on it again until all 15 projects are started so maybe we can stitch on it the same day. You pick cause you're the busy one :)
