WIP, future and crochet

Hello, managed to figure out what account I used to set this blog up with. The internet should be easier, somehow, yes?

Pics below are of my current WIP, a design out of the Jan 2010 issued of Cross Stitch and Needlework magazine. I started this in 2013 but should finish over the next few works. Sorry, can't get the stupid pic to upload right-side up.

I substituted with stuff I had in Stash but purchased the fabric especially for this from Silkweaver, its called Molino but not sure if that is the name of the fabric count or the name of color. Its a 36 count.

 These next picks of my new start, whenever I finish the Christmas one and a needle book that I am making. I just loved the colors on this sampler. Haven't decided yet what fabric to put it on. I substituted with some lighter colors as I thought the sampler was too dark and dreary.

Scarf I finished a few months along. I love this yarn. Its cotton but its a blend, so very light and a breeze to work with.  I added the flower on the loop to make it prettier. 

Well that's it folks. I have a new plan for pictures. I will bring the items to work, take pics there and upload. I have neither the time nor the dependable connection to do so from home. Hope this is a good plan. = )

Until the next time, keep on stitching!
