Stitching and More Stitching

I had a wonderful time visiting with Renee while she was here. We had all these plans of going stash shopping but mother nature had other plans! Wednesday we had a pretty good snow storm. The kids were let out of school early on Wed. and didn't have school for the next 2 days. We did manage to visit my LNS before the storm so we did get to a little stash shopping. :)

Since it was cold and snowy we were able to do a fair amount of stitching. I worked on ATFE and finished the spring scarecrow and started the back stitching.

My main focus of the week was Footprints. I stitched the lower border and I am hoping to completely finish the border this week sometime. Sorry the scan is crooked. The fabric kept slipping when I would close the lid so I finally gave up!

I did also started stitching Dani, the Stitching Dragon last week but I had to set it aside since I have to order some silk floss. I will try and remember to bring it with tomorrow to post a picture.

During all that stitching I showed Allie how to stitch on linen. I was astonished at how quickly she picked it up! She stitched a small design up in a single night. Now I really have to keep my stash under lock and key...lol! Krissy even picked up a project and started working on it and so far she hasn't gotten frustrated with it.

Woohoo! Great progress on your pieces and way to go on getting Allie stitching on linen. I'm glad that Krissy is not getting frustrated with her project this time around; maybe she'll take to it after all? :)
