It's beginning to look like Christmas


at my house. We got the tree up yesterday. Now to complete the lights on the front of the house and all the decorating will be done! I have had to pull Midnight out of the tree about three times this morning-LOL. I hope her fascination with the tree ends soon.

Still not too much productive stitching going on around here due to work. This is the last week of working extra and hopefully I can concentrate on stitching and finishing up my Christmas shopping. This is one of my current WIP's-apples fruit pack by LHN. I am doing it over one and it's my first time doing that. I like how it looks=terrible strain on my eyes. I hope to turn into a scissor fob.

This is another WIP's called Ladies with Baskets that I started. It is by Hanne's Needlecraft and I got it from Stitches and Spice in the land of down under. It's very colorful and you know me-I am all about bold colors. Thanks to all of you on the fabulous comments I received on my finished finishes. I treasure them all. Got to go-I think Midnight's in the tree again-this may be a long holiday season-LOL

Oh, the apples look so delicate! That's going to be an amazing scissor fob. Over-one stitching is a pain sometimes, but the results are sooo worth it!

The Ladies with Baskets is really pretty! Isn't that designed by Green Apple? I had worked in a LNS a few years ago and had a lady ask about these designs!! I love it!! Your Green Apples is looking really nice!! Great Job!!

Your tree looks great. I don't have mine up yet, but I have done the outside of the house. We had great weather last weekend, so I took advantage. Worked out well, as we've had bitter cold, snow, and ice since then.

Your two WIPs are very pretty. The apples are so delicate looking, and the bold colors in the ladies are great.

Purdy in purple! Wow, you are one of those early decorators. We are aiming for the 10th. I did get my cards finished though. : )

Kitty said...

Great job Sharon! I believe the actual piece is 100 times more delicate looking than the photo, right? So far I did only 2 pieces of such stitching as it is really like you said, terrible strain on eyes!

Both WIP are looking good to me. Hope you will be able to get some stitching done soon. I know about the working thing getting in the way of stitching..

Cathy said...

Great job on getting the tree up - I still have to do my decorating! I love the purple ornaments! One of my favorite colors.

I haven't been stitching much - too busy lately at work and at home. Glad to see that you are getting some stitching in!

Cindy said...

Can not tell that you like purple!!! I just love your tree, it is just gorgeous!!!
I can not wait to see more of the piece you are stitchign as well.

Emily said...

Love the colors on your tree!!

Lisa said...

Your WIP are gorgeous and love you tree :o)

AnneS said...

Oh Sharon, that tree of yours is absolutely stunning!! I LOVE the colour you've chosen - totally scrummy! :D And like you, I have to admit I'm pretty drawn to bright vibrant colours ;) I don't think there are too many of us out there LOL. Your over-one is coming along beautifully - it's a pain to stitch, but oh so worth it in the end (or so I have to keep reminding myself) - look forward to seeing it 'finished' :)

DebVA said...

Beautiful tree & great stitching. Ladies with Baskets is gonna be fantastic.

Annemarie said...

My, but you have got a lovely Christmas tree! Wow!
Over one stitching is definitely not my idea of fun, but the end result is always so gorgeous, as is the case with your fob-to-be!
Good luck with those final stitches!

Your Christmas tree looks fabulous Sharon. Isn't this a wonderful time of the year?
Thanks for visiting my site. I have sent you an e-mail about the LV Christmas tree.
I've been browsing through your blog and admiring all the lovely things you've been stitching. Will be back again.

I LOVE your purple tree theme! Its my favorite color but since the hubby hinks purple is too girly ours is blue and silver. Great work on your stitched pieces too.

Liz said...

Hi Sharon, Guess what? I am the designer of Ladies with Baskets, my name is Liz but I trade under Hanne's Needlecraft. I hope you enjoyed stitching it up. If you want anymore designs from Hanne's Needlecraft let me know, I can post them to you.
