Christmas Tree Farm

This weekend brought the finish of House 7 of Santa's Village...

Christmas Tree Farm
And now here it is Houses 1 through 7, on my Q-Snap, therefore a bit wonky... Heard the next one will be here very shortly... lovin' this project! This particular house did seem to take me much longer than the others though. Not entirely sure I liked this one as much as the others.

Stitcher's Choice Christmas Ornament from Nicole

I have received this really wonderful little ornament from Nicole for the HoE Stitcher's Choice Christmas Ornament Round... I am so thrilled with it. Nicole personalized the back by stitching one of the little red gifts and her initials. This is the first time I have received from Nicole in HoE, and what a treat it is... I shall look forward to hanging this on my tree year after year :-)

Stitcher's Choice Christmas Ornament for Lynn

I received a nice email from Lynn today, letting me know that the HoE Stitcher's Choice Christmas Ornament I stitched for her has arrived safe and sound at her home.... really hope she enjoys, I had a hard time parting with this one. I have wondered for a while now how the center portion of this cute sampler would look as an ornament. Now I know, and I love the results!

De-Stashing Sale

Hello Dear Stitching Friends, I have decided to do a bit of de-stashing... I don't want to get rich on this, so I am doing my best to post reasonable, fair...even cheap... prices on these items. I accept PayPal, but if you want to pay by check or well concealed cash, can negotiate lower price (as you know PayPal takes a good percentage of payments for themselves)... I strongly prefer to sell only to US address, as the US Postal Service has jacked up international rates to the point where they are beyond reasonable. As an example, I paid $8.55 to send the blue and cream fabric below to Canada... cluelessly, I only charged the buyer $3.50... not her fault, just a life lesson.... so if you want any of these, shout out - we will talk price and postage, sound good??

Silkweaver Fabrics for Sale

I have two beautiful fabrics that I am selling - I just have too much.... going to start liquidating some....  First up is a 24" x 27" 28 ct Silkweaver Solo which is simply marked as an evenweave (do not know if it is lugana or jobelan, but feels like lugana) - lovely shades of blue and cream.  There is one tiny little pink dye spot very near the center - a Mirabilia or PR design would cover it...  so tiny, did not know it was there until I took it out to take the pic.  Will part with this for $15 plus postage. sold....more coming soon....charts too

The other is a stunning stone colored Silkweaver 32 ct Jobelan FQ - also a solo, and a great neutral color. Will part with this for $12 plus postage. stone fabric sold

If interested in either or both, let me know!  I will have more coming....
