I won! I won!

I won a blogaversary giveaway from Angela at Hooked on Stitches (http://hookedonstitches.blogspot.ca).  She made a beautiful sewing box, Lizzie Kate Design "Life's A Stitch".  She did a wonderful job on finishing it.  
Here are a few photos.  


I will use it for storing needles.

After finishing Stitcher's Place I decided I want to see another small finish, so I started working on Just Nan's Gingerbread Jingle Mouse.

I  would have gotten more stitched but I had to pull out the left side edge (red and white) and restitch because my count was way off.

Stitcher's Place - Happy Dance

I completed Stitcher's Place late Friday night around midnight.  Here is the completed project and a few photos showing the real cross stitch store in Cambridge, Ontario, Canada.


This one I borrowed from Google Street view.  The retail store is on the left side and our Cross Stitch Club & workshops are held on the right side.

This one I borrowed from Stitcher's Place website.  There is room to park in the front and back of the building.  Stitcher's Place also sells online wwwstitchersplace.com .

Worked on the backstitching at the bottom and around the left side of the roof.  Also started filling in the white on the front door.  Should be able to complete it this weekend.  :)

Stitcher's Place update #13

Tuesday night I went to Stitcher's Club at my LNS and worked on Stitcher's Place.  I got quite a bit done, then came home and stitched a few more hours.  I'm getting closer to a finish.   Just the roof, and balcony door, and main entrance to do.  Hope to have it completed by the weekend.

Stitcher's Place update #12

One of my commenters was asking if I was almost finished.  I am getting  closer to a finish.  Here is a photo of what the finished project will look like.  I will not be stitching the border around.  I'm only stitching the house (Stitcher's Place retail store).

I continued working on the left side of the house and balcony.  I'm trying to finish this fast, so I can start something new ... maybe a Just Nan mouse.

Snowman Wisdom update #9

Tuesday night is Stitcher's Club at my LNS (Stitcher's Place).  I didn't get alot of stitching done ... more shopping and talking.  I bought the new Just Nan charts - Witchy Pumpkin Cottage (cube), Witchy's Sister Mouse and some 28ct Mushroom evenweave for the mouse.



Here is the little progress I made on Snowman Wisdom, 5 white snowflakes and started the tree.

September Goals 2015

I still don't know where summer went, it seems to fly by faster each year.  I took a long needed break from blogging, and cross stitching.  Hopefully my stitching mojo has returned for awhile I have lots of things I'd like to accomplish before the year is over.

September Goals
Work on Tiny Modernist - Stitcher's Place SAL (photo taken this morning).



Work on Snowman Wisdom by Sue Hillis (first half is done - photo was taken on April 22).


I will start out small, let's see how much I get stitched this month.
