Stitching when I find the time

Hello All, I am sorry for not posting in a while. Work has been really busy and what spare time I could find in the evenings , I have been stitching.  Warning this is Picture Heavy----
Luminaria Lane by Hands On Design. I have chose my own colors for this and may stitch it again but  with called for colors(DMC) at another time. I'll post again once I have finished it with my chosen colors listed.

Stocking #1 Winter Wildlife Christmas pages 1 & 2 done. I'll start on page 3 when it comes up in rotation.
Stocking #2 Celtic Christmas. Next band up in 3 large stars so far it's been an easy stitch. I have changed and will change some of the colors as I continue stitching. Chosen colors will be listed for this when I have finished it as well. They are all DMC threads.
Stocking #3 Christmas Eve. Also a easy stitch. I am using the called for colors DMC. Top floor and 2nd bedroom finished.

Next up is a finish. Lady Liberty 1776 by Shelly Auen of Primitive Stitchin. You can find her shop on Etsy @ Primitive Stitchin
I also have Uncle Sam 1776 as well I am planning on starting soon.
This is stitched on Osnaburg Linen I found at my local Hobby Lobby, lots of fuzz on it but it stitched up fine
1 over 2

Plan to start "Peace on Earth" by Cottage Garden Samplings. you can find the shop  on Etsy @ Cottage Garden Samplings
I'll be stitching it using DMC Threads and maybe a couple of changes. I have yet to decide. Will be stitched on my own hand dyed fabric 14 ct. Aida Pearl Grey, it's a little darker than the pic.

Next plan is to finally finish these 2 Cardinals into little pillows with this fabric and ricrac I found at Hobby Lobby.

That's all for now. I hope this finds everyone doing well and staying cool
Happy Stitching and May you have smokin'


  1. Luminaria Lane looks cute and I like your colour choice, but it will be interesting if you do stitch it again to see what their colourway is.
    Great stitching for the stockings, all very pretty.
    I was interested to see you stitched Lady Liberty on Osnaburg ..... I never thought to use it for cross stitch, I didn’t think the fabric would be even enough. I like stitching with Osnaburg and use it all the time for embroidery ..... it’s so easy to stitch with.
    Peace on Earth looks a pretty pattern.
    Happy stitching,

    1. Sorry for not replying till now. My work is in busy season. I'll definitely post about Luminaria Lane and tag you in it when I stitch it with their colourway. :) Thank you. Lady Liberty was the first time I've stitched on Osnaburg and I like it so far. The threads are like evenweave,I didn't lose my place or count when stitching on it.


Thank you for visiting! I do enjoy reading your comments and will respond as soon as possible.
