Stitchy pictures

I know I have been promising these for a while. I finally figured out how to get photos from the good camera uploaded.

My finished Debbie Draper Designs Tudor Valentine. Stitched on perforated paper with DMC Variations. I have to finetune and figure out how I want to finish this out. Stitched for the Brides' Tree SAL.

My WIP of Sheepish Designs' Betsy. Complete with a headless Betsy, a bodyless sheep and a splinched (I think that is how they say it in Harry Potter,LOL) squirrel.

I also wanted to share this beautiful gift I got in an exchange in 2008. In the move, it got misplaced, but I found it. It was made for me by Samantha and was for an exchange on the Sanman board. I think I will save it so that, if we're lucky enough to have children, I can use it as a journal to document their Halloweens. I can see it with pictures pasted inside and a bit of a journal entry each year. That is something I would have loved to have had, and this is too much of a treasure to use it otherwise.

You're stitching some great projects :o)

That's a really good idea about the Halloween journal.

Great stitching pics! I love that Halloween journal--what a neat idea!

I do my thing and you do yours. I am not in this world to live up to your expectations, and you are not in this world to live up to mine. You are you and I am I, and if by chance we find each other, then it is beautiful. If not, it can’t be helped--Frederick Perls
