Having another give away

I'm such a bad blogger lately.  Feeling really guilty about that. The only apology I have is that life is rather busy these days.

But I did take the time to go through my pile of charts that I stitched already and some are ready to find a new good home.

Two of those charts I got as kits. If you want to, I can send the remaining threads as well. It won't be enough to stitch it again, but it will be helpful in case you want to substitute.
If you want to put your name down for any or all of the charts, just tell me which one(s) and  I'll draw a name for each of the charts. Please make sure that I do have a way to contact you.

1. The North Wind by Little House Needleworks
2. Home of a Needleworker (Too) by Little House Needleworks
3. Spring Quaker by Rosewood Manor (with remaining Valdani Threads)
4. Jingle Bells Xmas Tree Farm by Victoria Sampler (with remaining silks)

I got some stitching in as well....

Finished the over one parts on Emma!!!

Emma Miles
Designer: The Scarlet Letter
Fabric: 36ct Vintage Cornsilk by Lakeside Linens
Threads: AVAS silks
And I took part in a Christmas ornament exchange at "Hooked on Exchanges" . The theme was this time "Hometown". I took Hometown a bit wider, and made it Australia. But the backing fabric was all Melbourne, which is really close by.  Here is what I sent to Marie:

 Designer: Carrol Nielssen
Fabric: 28ct Solo by Silkweaver
stitched over one with NPI silks

Lastly there is Susan Singleton. Can't show you any progress picture yet, that has to wait until December 1st.  But I did make a picture of a floss toss. I started  with Magnolia, then frogging that and using Summer Khaki, which came with the kit. Loving it so far. Except that the colors in the chart don't match with the picture on the chart. But changing it as I go and still in love with Susan. She's a very colorful girl.
