WIP Wednesday

This has been a pretty good stitching week and I have a few pics of the progress I've made. First of all I've been moving quickly on Brew Haha by Plum Street Samplers.

The pumpkin is such a funny-looking fellow and he's lovin' his coffee - at least that's what I imagine is in all those mugs!

The little Drawn Thread design is coming along nicely too.

All You Need is Love
Such a sweet design.

The heart in the bottom left corner is a trellis heart and the one to the right is a Rhodes heart. I get a little nervous when first attempting these motifs, but the chart includes such clear diagrams, that they're quite easy to achieve. And what a lovely result!

Last up today is the progress I've made on Red Velvet Inscription by Blue Ribbon Designs.

I like how each individual design square lets me have a mini-finish!  Here's what the entire piece is looking like:

I'm closing in on a page finish as well.

Well the dishwasher repair guy just left. I'm so glad I bought the extended warranty and even extended that for another year as I've more than made my $ back. It's been a good dishwasher over all, but they made so many plastic parts that have worn out and broken off that I've had to replace. Plus that machine has gotten a big workout over the years in my large family. And when kids load dishwashers, things get put in there that shouldn't be and things get broken. So I do recommend extended warranties on dishwashers, and I take my chances on other appliances. Your mileage may vary. :)

Back to work for me! Have a good one!

Such pretty stitching and those hearts are well worth the stress in stitching them.

Great progress on all your projects!

You had lots of great stitching in this post. I am so happy you got to take advantage of the extended warentee. I always seem to loose money on them.

Von: I am in love with your Pumpkin, he is a hoot.
I am in love with Drawn Thread, I have several designs kitted up in my I have to do basket.
The Red Velvet is beautiful, did you choose the fabric or did the instructions say to use that fabric, it is lovely.
Thank-you for visiting my Blogspot, I will add you to my follower list tomorrow.

Very nice, the progress on your WIPs. And the little pumpkin isn't a WIP any longer as I remember having seen it finished in a newer post.
