The Bookshelf Update

The Bookshelf

Click on picture to see it clearly.

This is where I am on it so far.............not too much to go now. Maybe I will be able to finish it by the end of the week. Can't wait for it to be finished and hanging on the wall!
I have also been stitching on my froggy exchange on my ILCS Yahoo group.

Although I didn't sign up for the TUSAL as it was closed by the time I found the blog hahaha, I thought it would be fun to take a photo of my orts jar at the end of each month.

Orts Jan 2011


It looks quite pretty and sparkly as it has gold Kreinik in there.

I spent the afternoon cooking cakes and stitching, so what a lovely way to round of a cold but productive day with a cake and a pot of tea :-)

  12. I haven't figured out the appeal for the CCN and LHN charts.....I'm not usually one for the "simpler" stuff. In the past it was all about more details!!! But I just love the way these look, simple but not primitive. They are just happy pieces! Well done.

  13. Love "The Bookshelf" may have to get this one myself as I'm a bookworm. Not signed up this year for the TUSAL but will be collecting and posting. Adore the teapot, just right with the sticky bun...post one up to Yorkshire please ;-) LOL!

  14. Kelly, I have The Book Shelf in my stash, but I really love how far you've come! I like the fabric you're stitching it on.

    I didn't know there was a blog with the TUSAL on it, but I do have a jar of orts in it; however, I started it in 2010. It's a hilarious idea though!
