I am way due....

.... for a new post, aren't I???

Hello friends ! It has been a while but here I am (since Christmas. Yikes !)  I don't have much to say, other than life is good and I can't complain.  I have been busy with work and life in general, but I've still found some time for stitching.  I have finally finished my Spanish Mystery Sampler by Shakespeare's Peddler and I absolutely love it !!!  I can't stop looking at it.  I am getting ready to pin it and frame it.  

I also have some new wallets that will be in my wallet blog very soon, and there are many more to come.  Some pictures are below.  Please enjoy the pictures and let me know what you think !!

Hola amigas !!  Ha pasado un tiempo desde que escribí algo en este blog (desde Navidad !!).  No tengo mucho nuevo que contar.  La vida sigue y yo no me puedo quejar.  He estado ocupada con el trabajo, familia, etc, pero he encontrado un poquito de tiempo para hacer punto de cruz.  He terminado mi  Spanish Mystery Sampler de Shakespeare's Peddler, y me encanta.  Me queda enmarcarlo y encontrar un buen sitio en casa para colgarlo.  Abajo podéis ver varias fotos del Sampler y de otras cositas que he estado haciendo.

In January I attended The Attic Symposium and it was lots of fun.  I know many people have posted about it, so I won't bore you with all the details again, but I wanted to show you the cute pin cushion that Paulette from Plum Street Samplers designed for the class.  Paulette is so very talented and I love this little guy and how it came out.  I stained the fabric a bit with coffee (much to my friend Sherry's dismay :-).

En Enero fue a pasar el fin de semana a AZ y a participar en unas classed ofrecidas por una tienda maravillosa que se llama The Attic. Una de las instructoras fue Paulette de Plum Street Samplers y este es el pin cushion que diseñó para la clase.  Paulette es una diseñadora encantadora y con mucho talento.  

Right now I am working on another one of Paulette's designs called My Handworke and I had to stitch it because I love the verse in it.  Take a look below:

Ahora mismo estoy bordando otro diseño de Paulette que me encanta.  El verso es precioso....

And this is my progress on it.  I almost have the border finished and I hope it will match !!

Casi he terminado el borde y espero que encaje !!

Our guild is having a couple of classes by Jackie DuPlessis from It's Fine-ally Finishedl.  One of the classes is called Briar Rose Etui and there is some pre-stitching to do over one.  Here is a picture of the finished Etui.   

Nuestra asociación de punto de cruz ofrece una clase de la diseñadora Jackie DuPlessis (It's Fine-ally Finished) que se llama Briar Rose Etui.  La clase requiere que llevemos el bordado.  Abajo podéis ver una foto del diseño ya terminado y lo que yo llevo bordado.  No es mucho, pero poco a poco....

Here is my progress so far.  I tend to rebel against pre-stitching because I like to go at my own pace and I stress out when I have a deadline, but I guess I have to do it, since I paid for the class, right?

And finally, here are some new wallets that I'll be adding to my wallet blog soon.  I have many more in the works, but not ready to show you yet...  There are so many beautiful fabrics out there and I just want to buy them all !!!  Enjoy...

I hope you enjoyed this post.  Thanks so much for stopping by..... I do love to read your comments.  

Esto es todo por hoy.  Gracias por pasados por aquí, os agradezco todos vuestros comentarios :-)  Un abrazo.
