Part 3 (a)

Back to what my blog was originally about! Have a finish to share. Totally finished 'cake ' from CCN . Only have one more to go and then I will frame them for my kitchen which was painted on the Canadian long weekend. So my bare wall needs filling.
Now for my 'Christmas in July 'piece. I saw this on the ABC needlework therapy retreat header finished as a decorated cube and couldn't wait to make one myself. I just love the soft fabric that is flecked with gold.Excuse the dark picture. Since I took the pic I have stitched some more so will update later in the week.
Can never seem to place my pics right like so many other bloggers can . Lastly I stitched these Christmas silverware holders years ago for my Mom and am going to change George to Grampa and Mom to Elisabeth to fill in the missing holders as I haven't seen these around in years.
So that is my stitching finally to show.I hope to stitch on 'Lo' this week too as Lee is finished her sampler ( for weeks now!)


  1. So did you stitch all your CCN thread packs separately? They will be darling in a kitchen :)
    And I love your LHN ABC will be totally darling as a cube!
    The silverware holders are sweet too, I need to make some of those for my family. I bet they'd be a breeze to sew some up.

  2. I love the silverware holders! Are they actually holders or are they stockings that you re-purposed for silverware? Wonderful, wonderful!

  3. Vonna and Lee ,
    The CCN thread packs are all done separately . The silverware holders are actually little stockings that I bought years ago made by Charles Craft and I think may have got the alphabet from a 'For the Love of Cross stitch 'mag.Thanks so much!

  4. The CCN finish looks lovely and i am sure the little stocking will look great as ornamnet when finish.

    Thanks so much for stopping by on my blog.

  5. Your Christmas piece is looking pretty, and I love your finished Cake. It's just beautiful! I hope you will share a photo of all of them hanging in your kitchen. Your silverware holders are such a clever idea!

  6. Your finished cake looks great. Very pretty silverware holders. Great idea.

  7. "Cake" is a adorable, Jennifer! Good start on your Christmas piece and I look forward to seeing "Lo" finished very soon. It is such a beautiful piece :)

  8. Really pretty I love your Christmas in July and the cake you did is so cute!
