Wednesday WIP's

Time for a WIP update since my finishes are so few and far between:


Houses of Hawk Run Hollow House #6- I managed to work on this for an evening or two and made some progress on the house and fence, although I admit its a little hard to see. I'll be at this one for a while, folks, so you're going to be seeing lots more of it!




JBW Stocking on Celery Gingham Graziano linen. This has been really fun to stitch on. And its also really fun to thread your needle and stitch along your merry way until the end of the thread! I'm not using the suggested GAST or WDW for this one, just good ol' plain DMC, I didn't think I needed to use a variegated floss with the gingham fabric. I'm liking this one so well, I'm even entertaining the thought of doing it in red also! Crazy, I know, but I'm still anxiously awaiting the JCS Ornie issue, which hasn't arrived yet on any newstands that I have found, so I'm seriously Christmas deprived these days.



And I'm nearing the end of my Thanksgiving Turkey! I do love Prairie Schooler designs so much! This is from Book 93 called Harvest Time and I may just get it finished in time for our Thanksgiving which is on October 8, a little too early in the year to be thinking of it when I really want to turn my a/c back on, its 27 degrees C in the house right now and hot-hot-hot! But I'm sure I'll be much more in the mood in a couple of weeks.

Meanwhile all my WIP's are getting tossed aside tonight as I really need to sort something out for the SBEBB Hallowe'en exchange. On Monday nights I have Foster parent training and Tuesday nights a study group, so I can't wait for tonight to roll around so I can put my feet up with some stitching and watch some of the new programs and series premieres!

Oh wow, Wendy, is this the house with the black background? I'm sure the lighter blue will really stand out in the end! And boy do I love your PS Thanksgiving!
I do sympathise with you re. the weather. It's nice and autumnal over here. Today I wore my winter coat for the first time. Yay!

HOHRH is looking really good!
I love that gingham linen!! This stocking is going to be gorgeous.
My JCS ornament issue showed up this week in the stores here. It's always worth the wait.
I'm a new fan of PS designs and am awaiting the arrival of some of their charts. Harvest Time is really lovely.

How wonderful to 'see' you again!

Your prize was just amazing and I'm really envious! 3 of those are on my list too (I already splurdged out on the Alyssm chart)

You've been a busy person and your finishes are great eye candy. I think your finishing skills are well polished already ;) No improvement needed :D

Hazel said...

Youve done loads on the stocking already!! Love the Houses too. xx

Jaimie said...

Hi Wendy!
I love all your WIP's! Your turkey on the bottom is so cute! And the houses look great! How fun! Thanks for visiting me and do come back. I know I will be coming back here often!

Sherry said...

HOHRH looks wonderful! I have drooled over this piece until I finally just had to order it! I love the turkey by PS too! I may have to buy that one also!

jane said...

Love your turkey - I started it years ago, but seeing yours has inspired me to go find it and finish it. You do lovely work!

stitcherw said...

Nice progress on all of them. Houses is so huge, I really like this one and admire anyone that can stick with one this size and finish it. The JBW on the gingham looks great. I agree that with the accent of the gingham in the background it really doesn't need an overdye, the DMC looks fine. In fact, an overdye might even detract from it. The turkey looks wonderful too, and your timing on this is so perfect. Hardly any of him left so he'll be done in no time.

Hi Wendy, I'm catching up LOL. LOVE your PS Thanksgiving. I have that one and want to do it as well, guess I should think about that for next year LOL. We could use some of your warm weather here, it's been cold and drizzly.. a high of 8c today, brrr. I really like your stocking as well. I haven't seen that yet, but I've been out of touch lately... perhaps I should go browsing some ONS... thanks I think LOL

Michelle said...

Your WIPs all look fabulous! I especially like the turkey - what a cute piece!!

Lauren said...

I love them all, but the Thanksgiving piece has me drooling! I think I need to go find that right now!
