Thank you so much for tuning in to the Cozyegg flosstube/podcast! In this episode I share some framed pieces, the start of the Village of Hawk Run Hollow SAL, and some birthday gifts.
Framing (No Finishes):
Sugar Skull Version 5 by Kristy Kizzee (Bombastitch) on etsy stitched on 40ct Weeks Cocoa with DMC. Finished in October 2012. Blog post here.
Garden of Eerie by Plum Street Samplers stitched on 36ct Meadow Rue (not Light Examplar like I said in the video) with DMC. Finished in October 2011. Blog post here.
1854 Isabella Johnstone Sampler by Needlework Press (originally in SANQ Summer 2010) stitched on 40ct Vintage Lentil with Belle Soie silks. Finished in August 2012. Blog post here.
Anniversaries of the Heart by Blackbird Designs – I’m currently on the July block called Swan Lake; stitched on 40ct Vintage Examplar by Lakeside Linens with the called for GAST and Crescent Colors threads
Can you believe another year has come and gone? I thought I’d squeak in a final post for the year and do a little recap of 2011. Above you can see my finishes for 2011. A couple of quilts, some beading, some finishing, and a few medium-sized pieces.
I linked each of those to the associated blog post so you can get more info on them if you want. I’m pleased with my finishes for the year, although I’d hoped to have more. But, isn’t that the way it always is?
As for the books I read this year, here’s my little list for that as well…
City of Bones The Forgery of Venus* The Thousand Autumns of Jacob de Zoet* Parrot & Olivier in America* Lover Mine A Northern Light The Pioneer Woman: Black Heels to Tractor Wheels The Hare with Amber Eyes* Living Dead in Dallas Heaven is for Real The Help Lover Unleashed An Object of Beauty* Girl with the Dragon Tattoo Club Dead Soulless The Paris Wife*
The books with asterisks are book club books.
And I thought I’d share with you a look at my ort jar. I’ve been letting these bits pile up for awhile (much longer than just the past year – they are packed in there really well), and decided that tomorrow will be a fresh new start across the board.
After my stitching today, I’ll empty this out and begin anew on January 1.
I’d really like to also finish Margaret Cottam, but that may not happen before the ball drops at midnight. I would love to see another “1” on that corner though!
And tomorrow, I will have a new start, as part of my New Year’s Day tradition. I can’t wait!
