Lots of pics...

This past saturday I went and picked up my Row of Love from the framer. It turned out very beautiful. I took this piece to a new framer, and a think she did an incredible job. I think I'll take my pieces to her from now on. I always complain that I can never find good supplies for stitching here in Peru, but one good thing about living here is that to frame things is not expensive, for this one I only payed about USD 20 ...*grin*

I also worked on Noah's Ark last week. I haven't stitched a Precious Moments' chart in a long time. I didn't remember how easy they were, since they have big blocks of color. I'm almost sure I'll have it done in time.

I got my camera back...YEY!!. So here are the pics of my latest finishes.

This is how I finished Stoney Creek's Tada!

This is how I finishes a Lorri Birmingham piece I did a couple of years ago.

Here it is again hanging in my entrance hall with a Dimension's kit I did last Christmas

My sister Carla is back from her trip. She'll be posting all about in the next days. She's also very excited because she finally has some free time for stitching again.

Today I decided to pick Row of Love and I didn' t stop until I finished it. There was little left, just a few stitches and the backstitch. It took me about 140hrs to complete.
I'm really happy with it. This kit was a welcome home gift from Carla back in March when I came back from Spain. I've always loved this piece, so I was very happy when she gave it to me.
I'll try to frame it this week, since I already know where to hang it in my bedroom.
Here's the pic ....

WIP: Rune Gypsy

This week I stiched on Rune Gypsy. But, I haven't made a lot of progress, there seems to be little time for stitching this days.
Right now I'm stitching on page 3, and there is a LOT of color changes in this part. That has made my progress a little slow.

On other things, my sister Carla has finished her classes in Maastricht. She's told me, she really enjoyed her stay there eventhough she had a hard time getting used to the time difference. She said that the first few days she felt very sleepy during classes.

She's now traveling through some european countries for 2 weeks, she'll be back home just in time for Christmas.

An update...

This past weeks I haven't been stiching that much. I'm so busy doing other things, that I have very little time left for stitching.

A couple weeks ago I decided to start stitching Noah's Ark. So I went ahead and dyed a piece of Aida I had in my stash. This was the first time I dyed such a bib piece of fabric (30" x 35"). I've always dyed small pieces before. But I think it turned out pretty good. I didn't want to but fabric, since I'm trying to save as much as I can for my Christmas shopping. Anyway, here's the pic.

This is how much I have done on it so far...

This past week, I picked up Row of Love again. I worked on it for ten more hours, which means I've worked on it for almost 130 hrs now. There's very little left to finish it, so maybe next time I stitch on it I'll have a new HD

I also did some finishes, but because I still don't have my digital camera with me, I'll have to share those pieces with you all later. They are two Christmas projects.

This week I'm stitching Rune Gypsy again.
