February Stitch and Bitch

We had a great S&B this month and I have two new starts to share. First Jan, Sharliena and I had a great breakfast at Denny's, lots of food and great prices. Than back to my place to stitch,  Sharliena worked on J Walls Bubbles and it is coming along great, I just love her stuff. Jan and I started a new SAL we are going to stitch Tavern Sign too by Carriage House Samplings. We are both using hand dyed materials that we dyed ourselves. Mind is 28 ct over two while Jan is doing hers over one but I can't remember the count she is using.  I am going to do the sign than add the lettering and I think Jan is going to do it the other way around, that's what makes these so much fun.

I started working on my Long Dog Sampler Pot 4 Dickie, it is black on white 9 inches wide by 33 inches long and is going to take a loooooooooooooooooot of black floss. I am thinking about slipping in a punch of color every once in a while but I'll have to see how it goes.  I worked on it after Jan and Sharliena left so I got a bit more done. I am going to work on it today while I am waiting for the cable man to come since my Internet connection seems to be moving at the speed of an old dial up connection. WHICH IS NOT FUN!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Last week I forgot to post a picture of my stitch finished ILH Needlebook cover. I still have to do the finishing but the stitching is done. I thought it was going to be to big but once it is finished I think it will be OK.

Your needlebook pattern is the perfect size for finishing. You will use it lots too!!
