A May Post

I have been working on Dorothy, lots of eyelets ha ah!

Closer look at the eyelets, more to go...

The over 1 verse is progressing very slowly, one word at a time! But I am getting there...soon...

Part two of Sara's SAL Sorpresa 3 arrived and here is my progress. I just finished stitching two trees, a St Bernard and some of the borders. Will be building another house soon!

I am also working on another project by Sara - Summer. More works on Summer since my last post!

Closer look at the houses!

I really love Sara's designs, enjoy building houses and planting the flowery border!

Another HAL for me! Yes , I join Mamen's HAL Baby. We are currently at part two of this project.

Stitched on 32ct unknown fabric from my stash using DMC perle 482. I using a dash of light yellow for the cable stitches. Sorry, can't see the color clearly in the picture.

More scissors fobs, small projects that I love in between my big ones ha ah!

The pulled thread fob is actually part of the designs offered by Kathrin in 2012 for a 15 sided biscornu SAL. She had another SAL in 2011, please visit her blog to see her beautiful designs!

The other side of the fobs!

Another small scissors case found on Violet's blog! This is the project for her Learning Hardanger SAL, I love it! Will be making more for friends ha ha!

Currently, I am knitting owls for keychains/scissors fobs! My craft group meets every Tuesday and we are crazy about owls at the moment...patched owls, knitted owls...  I will show pictures in my next update.

Thank you for your visits and comments, they are greatly appreciated!

Happy Stitching!

Oh wow! Those eyelets are so beautiful on Dorothy! I love the colours in this sampler. The Sorpressa SAL is endearing with that little St. Bernard. Your fobs are so sweet and perfect! Great scissor case too!

Beautiful stitching. I love your new SAL. Are those designs just full cross stitches and no specialty stitches. I love it.

Oh my, Ellen, you have been so busy. All those beautiful little finishes, absolutely great.
Both WIPs are coming along great. I'm glad that I'm not the one that has to stitch all these eyelets on Dorothy. You just need a lot of patience but they make a great effect!
I just love the Sorpresa SAL and each time I see a new piece of it on someone's blog I regret that I didn't join. Beautiful!

Looks like May was a wonderfully productive month for you, Ellen! I really love those SALs by Sara--they look like such fun to stitch. Isn't that St. Bernard adorable?!

Happy June to you Ellen--hope it includes lots of stitching time :)

So many beautiful pieces that you are stitching, Ellen. I love your hardanger pieces and that scissor keep is gorgeous. I must check out Sara's designs.

Beautiful scissor fobs Ellen.
I know just how dainty these must be as I am the proud owner of one that you sent me in our exchange.
Love the scissor case. One of these days I will attempt the Hardanger.
