The garden doesn't seem to mind the cold. Meet the newest members of our flower family. We finally found a yellow Hibiscus!
This big beauty is the largest Hibiscus, so far.
Miniature tea rose.
I had a few small cross stitch finishes and even managed to get a few of last months ornaments sewn up.
Hello Kitty in a bunny suit.
Flag and baby robin. I found an older Brooke's Books patriotic design of Uncle Sam and Lady liberty on the Kreinik website. Thinking of making a sampler with this flag and the Brooke's Books design.
Wip's for this month include
A Wizards Veiw, artist Joan Elliott
This is my YOTA piece for this month. The UFO SAL can be found at this link http://pulltheotherthread.blogspot.com/p/yota-year-of-acronyms.html
After. Not much done with the beast of heavy work the last two weeks. Did manage to get the gold back stitched in the frame trim.
Other WIP's for this months rotation includes
Bubble Telescope. Made some good progress on this one! Have 2 finished bottom pages. A third bottom page only has about 25 stitches left. Second row has 2 pages that are 3/4s finished. May meet my yearly HAED goal on this one.
Mystic Garden, the HAED 2013 SAL
Also worked on is a "swirly" cat and Brooke's Books Spring house. My camera battery decided to go dead before I could get picture's. May be able to finish those for next month.
More felt fun. Back last year I queried Brooke's Books group for ides on needle books. I received some very good ideas. Due to time constraints, I settled for the "ole" magnet strips and an eye glass case. Worked fine as long as I didn't open the case... My solution came through Pinterest. One young lady was showing off her Iphone case she made. In looking at her case, I thought this would be a good start in manufacturing a needle case. As it turned out, I was able to make a pocket for scissors, too. After much drawing and sewing, this is what I came up with.
Had fun with some shapes
Michelle has also been creative this month with knitting more mice.
Mickey and Mini Mouse!!
