I have added a Thread Forum !

http://crossstitchforum.wetpaint.com/thread HI!! I wanted to invite you all to the Forum Board for this blogsite!!! I think it has been awhile since we got to use this type of forum, and I think this one will work well with the blog. It will be useful to keep track of dates and events happening within our group! ANYONE can join here and you can be a moderator to the forum as well... I hope this works out well... It is useful to me to see the board in thread form when it comes to dates and events... see you there... oh the link will be to the right as well. Laura

Biscornu exchange: info.

:) Hi everyone... I have spent much of my day cleaning .... and stitching! as well as watching movies :) FUN !!! I am so happy with my progress :) .... I have been asked two times this weekend for an update on the biscornu exchange so here it is! The people who have signed up so far for the exchange are listed to the right under the list for Biscornu.... If you would like to join, I am taking signups through January 4th... At that time I will make a partner list and send you all the information... on the 5th of January - which is a Saturday... We will have through March 1st to finish and send. I was going to have it through the 15th, but it seems that this would be best so we do not lose track! Laura any questions - just ask! I am excited about the exchange!

Time to stitch!

So January is almost here, and it is time to stitch. I am sure if anyone has not recieved a package I would have heard by now... If I am wrong - please let me know... otherwise I will be stitching on several items this month!: A scissor FOB exchange project My Fair and Squares finish ...(just a wee bit of backstitching) and of course the Fairy Queene... (Vanessa`s piece) I am excited... this actually seems like a small list. I heard from Vanessa... she is working on an Earth Goddess! She is loving it so much that she is actually almost finished! WOW! Will send a picture as soon as I get one... Also... Rapunzel and Red Poppy (nothing else!) I figure this way perhaps I will finish Rapunzel... she is dying for the prince to come along .... so I have to complete her braids ...

Here is the picture of the wonderful stash I got from Vanessa ...

Got my package from Vanessa today!!!

WOW! You have been busy! My favorite are the absolute greatest gloves I have ever worn! Very warm... BEAUTIFUL colors! I believe Vanessa dyed these herself! The colors go so perfectly together... the scan does little justice for these! I also love the cute kleenex holder she made! also she sent a kit by bucilla called "Peony" (she has been listening! I love that flower!).. and a beautful green & blue & yellow silk from France ... #4050! I am so spoiled, and she says there is more... I know you are stitching... but I feel so happy with what I have allready! You are great! Thank you ! ... You should sell these gloves! They are so so so nice! Thank you! HUGS Laura

Rebekah, thank you for the card :) You really did not have to.... thus the giftalong ... lol BUT hey, I will not ever complain! Thank you! Laura & MERRY CHRISTMAS! I love the owl on your page... I miss my owl a lot!

Hi to all !

Just thought I would write a line to say hello. I have finals this next week so I know that it will be hectic. I have not stopped thinking about blogging....

Links

Okay .. so I am not finished, but I am finished for the moment! As you can see... I got busy with the links .... and did more than I thought I would.... :)

looking for knotwork pattern(s)

I am looking for some good knotwork patterns to use for some Biscournu projects. Is there anyone out there that has one (some) to share? Pixie

Biscornu Exchange

Go ahead and put me down as a definite, I will have the time. Question though, will this be our own design or will there be a theme or something? Pixie

Links Lists

Okay, so I finally found the best way to list links. It only took me forever - lol... so - I will work on that section next... It may take abit, but it will improve the functionality of this site :) Have a good night. Laura who may never get all of her Christmas decorating done... lol Some is done!

Rebekah`s Seahorses

Well this is the pincushion that I made for Rebekah. It can be used around a small pillow as well. The pincushion inside comes out and can be used on its own. Anyways it is a few seahorses. The picture is not so great as I used my scanner, but she has recieved it. If you go to Rebekah`s site you can see Andrea`s wonderful bookmarker!

Stitching:

Hi! Well it is not that I have not been stitching, I have! I am 90 percent done with my squares for the Round 4 of my Fair and Square exchange ! So Carol, I will probably mail off within a week or 2... SO ... stay tuned! I think you will like it :) Everyone here does ! As you may have guessed this is a surprise for Carol, SO I cannot post the pics for it till she recieves her package. I have also stitched quite a bit on the Red Poppy.... and hope to post this weekend. I finished off 2 of the ornaments. I didnt have much luck on the finishing techniques ... I think they are too small... Or I just dont know what I am doing .... I am not an expert finisher by any means = so >I did it my way. I made earrings out of the girl and boy gingerbread cookies so that I could hang them or put them in my ears.... Hope this finds you all well :) Laura

laura colleen andrea pixie rebekah vanessa laura

Thank you

Thank you to all... I deleted the 2 previous posts with mistakes hoping to alleviate any pain I have caused all of your lists are correct and I wrote mine out wrong... backwards into my journal ... SO I have it straight now ... you are all on track but since I confused you here it is: you send to the person below you 3 ladies laura colleen andrea pixie rebekah vanessa laura which absolutely makes more sense with all the information we have shared lately.... so sorry, please forgive me (that hurt!) note - I did not want to delete the posts except to save on more confusion. Laura

Ignore me

Thank you all I fell out of the nest and boinked my head my feathers are ruffled but I can still fly! I wrote my list into my journal backwards you are all on track SORRY! Laura

Egyptian finish

I thought I could post a pic under the comments, but my brain is too cold from playing outside to look for how to do it. Anyway, I just had to do backstitching on Tut's mask - all done, now I can play with even-ing the design out and...not telling!

It`s Snowing!

It is snowing a light snow! So beautiful! I do not think it will last all day so I am going to stock up - I bet it snows good tonight! Love to see the snow ... wishes for no ice! Laura
