Finishes and Frames

Well, hello!  Um, pay no attention, please, to the date of the last post.  Deal?  I've done many fun things this past year, and have recorded none of them here.  Shameful, I tell you!

Since I last left showing a peek of Fa La La, maybe I should update him, eh? Here he is, all finished and pressed. Don't know what I'll do, but probably frame him somehow.

Shepherd's Bush - Fa-La-La

I think he turned out pretty cute. LOVE that button hat too! I also had been working, albeit very slowly, on Spooky Hollow by With Thy Needle and Thread. Very sad and slow update below! I adore this design.  It's got a border that doesn't look very fun, but I'll persevere and finish it properly.

Spooky Hollow - With Thy Needle and Thread

Just yesterday, I went and picked up a project from the framer, In Stitches. Here is my framed Blackbird Designs project.

With My Needle - Blackbird Designs

I hope everyone is doing well. My blog feed shows so many beautiful and wonderful projects being done out there! I need to find some time to catch up with everyone and get some inspiration.  I've done some designing, but not much stitching, as evidenced here.  Maybe I'll get my act together this coming year?  I have a few things to figure out on Blogger, so that will keep me busy updating for a while.  Until next time,

I love your Halloween stitching. I have to admit, it's my favorite holiday to stitch for too.

Glad you are back to blogging! :-)

Chris said...

Beautiful work Tammy. Welcome back!

Good to know you've done some beautiful stitching while you've been away. Love the Halloween pieces and the BBD looks great framed. Hope we hear from you more often now. But blogging can actually be a burden sometimes I think!

Lovely to see you posting to your blog again.
Your framed BD looks wonderful.
Love your Spooky Hollow and Fa La La finishes.

Vonna Pfeiffer said...

It's so good to see you posting again! I have been through a slump filled year, too, so I know what you mean about needing to find some inspiration. I am slowly learning that reading blogs definitely helps with wanting to stitch--it's a shame it's taken me so long to realize that!!

LOVE your framed With My Needle! Your finish is adorable, too. I love that Spooky Hollow piece! I had so wanted to do more Halloween stitching this year but thankfully there's always next year!

Sharon said...

Your finish is adorable! It made me order one those kits! LOL Love the framed piece and your wip is looking good as well!

What fun pieces, Fa La La is so cute with the sheep and his little hat. Your framed piece is lovely as well, the coloring is so pretty. No surprise you have Trick or Treat Mice too with your love of Halloween. Love the design, just working on the black drove me nuts. I think you're the only other person I've known that also has the pattern though, most people say they've never seen it before. I so enjoy seeing all your SB pieces, I have Goblins in my stash to do. I love the mat that came with it, maybe for my next Halloween piece :)

Glad to see you back! I've missed looking at your work. Thanks for visiting my blog.

Welcome back, Tammy, and what a nice update. That framed BBD piece looks gorgeous. And I *love* Spooky Hollow. She's such a great and colourful witch carrying her pumpkin. I'm looking forward to seeing her finished.

Robin said...

How cute!!! Love the update and I think for some reason, we've all fallen behind (or I know I have) on blogging. I've done a bit of stitching, but hardly any blogging. I plan to make 2013 a more CRAFTY year! WElcome back!
