Mailart Finish

Well, I had a productive sunday. Even though the stitching for this MA has been done for I bit I finally spent today putting this all together. This exchange gets sent out in mid November. I stitched a Christmas Village scene on the front and a varigated snowflake on the back. Very Christmassy, I think. I hope Margaret likes it.

I have several other ongoing projects. Just Nan's Ice Garden which I just started friday night as part of Becky's Let Stitch SAT http:// . This SAT has really motivated me to get some of my stash stitched up. I'm also,still working on my F & S Square. Plus, I have one more mailart envelope to make. I'm going to use the carpenter's wheel square I stitched a few weeks is in a previous post. Yesterday, I received a Texas robin I need to stitch on. So, I've got plenty on my plate this week. Till next time.

I'm Still Here

I'm still here, just been busy working and stitching in my spare time. I had a wonderful weekend of stitching that started friday night with Becky's SAT and ended sunday with me completing Just Nan's Summer Stroll. HAPPY DANCE!! I haven't decided how to finish it off, yet. I have seen some lovely wooden boxes that this wood look pretty in...need to check them out.

I'm still working on my next mailart piece. Hope to complete it over the weekend.Will post a photo as soon as it's done. I'm also working on my 1st Fair & Square exchange piece...can't show any photo's till it's received, but it's coming along nicely. I think I'm going to start Just Nan's Ice Garden this coming friday for the SAT. I have a pile of Just Nan charts just waiting to be stitched and these friday night SAT's are a great way to get some of them done. Off to do some stitching. Until next time.

Well, it's friday again! I finally had a few minutes and got my DD to post my photos for me. First up is the mailart exchange I got from Taija in Finland. Thank you so much, Taija I just love my 1st MA. As you all can tell it was a Halloween theme.I have already signed up to do 2 more of these MA exchanges, both of them will be Christmas themed. Last week I used my 2nd MA project as my SAT piece [which I've joined over at BeckySC's blog ] and then during the week I managed to complete my stitching and stitched both names and addresses. I just need to find a chart to stitch on the back of the envelope. Here's a photo of it so far.

For tonight's SAT I have pulled out Just Nan's "Summer Stroll". I started this piece over the summer and somehow it got pushed to the side. These SAT's are really helping to keep me motivated. I even found time this week to put all my floss in my Thread Beds. Only need to purchase about 15 skeins to fill up those pages. Hopefully, I can keep myself organized this way.

A Finish

Here are photos of my latest finish. This is a Lizzie Kate freebie I stitched for Georgina. We were to stitch a piece and then finish it. I decided to get creative after checking out Vonna's lovely finishing ideas blog. I picked up a small veneer box at the craft store and used fabric to cover it, as well as, batting in the top and bottom of the box in case she decides to use it as a pinkeep. I think I did okay for my first attempt. I hope Georgina likes it. Will be mailing it off to her this week.

Last night I joined in on Becky's, "Let's Stitch", stitch a thon. I have a mailart envelope I'm working on for another's a Christmas Village chart. I got a fair amount stitched and will probably use this project to work on next friday night for the next stitch a thon. Here's a photo of my progress so far.

On a Happy Note... I have off work monday and tuesday, so I hope to get a lot of stitching. Until Next Time...
