Fifth last Friday Frolic for 2016....

Yes, we are on the countdown to the end of the year now ..... only four more Fridays to go to 2017! Woo Hoo!

Happily for me, I had another Happy Dance for FF last night - I am on a real roll with my Christmas stitching, that is for sure!



This is a very sweet Freebie design from Designs by Gloria and Pat on the Candy Cane Stitchers Group on FB, just scroll down to October 18 (although you do need to be a member of the group, I think, to see all of the pics.

I stitched it on 28 ct Ivory linen, using my own choice of floss.

What did everyone else get up to for Friday Frolics last night?

Some Friday Frolicking Happy Dances....

I have two Happy Dances for recent Friday Frolic stitching....

First up is my Witchy Remedy, an WIP/UFO which I picked up two Friday Frolics ago, you can read about it on this post here.  Anway, I kept working on it over the past few weeks and I am pleased to say that I have finished it!

This was my piece for the April 2013 theme on the earlier incarnation of this Hallowe'en Ornie SAL blog - finally finished!  Only Three and a half years late! lol!





Look carefully, at the last pic, can you see the mistake I made, again?  Another one that I intend to keep, as it sort of fits in with the theme of the piece.

Floss: Suggested DMC


My other Finish, is a new design which I started last Friday night and finished on Saturday night - very happy with this!

'Trick or Treat What's to Eat?' from Prairie Schooler Book #188 Trick or Treat.



This was an absolute dream to stitch, I started it on Friday and finished it just before midnight on Saturday night.  So, a very quick stitch for me.

I am so looking forward to next year's themes for the Hallowe'en Ornie SAL, I can't wait to get started!

"Singin' in the Spring" ....

.... is my latest Friday Frolic.....

I did a stash dive and found this sweet stitch languishing in my pile of UFOs/WIPs.


Now, this is where I was up to, and I cannot find anywhere on my main blog (Kitten Stitching) any reference to when I stitched this last (most remiss of me!).

Update: With some "forensic" research and the realisation that I had mislabelled my earlier FF post on this design (I put "Singin' in the Rain" instead of "Singin' in the Spring" Duh!), I discovered that the last time I stitched on this piece was 22nd January, 2016 and that I blogged about it on this blog, not my main one.)

Anyway, this is where I was up to before this week's FF ....



.... and here is what I achieved for FF.....


Isn't that a sweet singin' birdie?

So, that's all for me this week, 

hugs, Kaye

An oldie but a goodie....

I dove into my pile of WIPs and UFOs yesterday and found Witchy Remedy by Silver Creek Samplers (from the 2011 JCS ornie mag) sitting there all forlorn and forgotten.  But never fear, I worked hard on it yesterday and great progress was made.  I intend to stitch some more on it shortly and to have a big stitching day tomorrow - maybe there will be a FFF soon?  (Friday Frolic Finish).

I think that I last stitched on it in April, 2013 for the Hallowe'en Ornie SAL (in an earlier incantation - thanks Jo for the reminder).  This is what I wrote way back when....

And this is my April Project:

 Floss toss for Witchy Remedy:



.... and this is what Witchy Remedy looks like now....



Sorry, not the greatest of pics.  But I have stitched the green and yellow on the bed and the words/letters "ke a moldy slice".

I will try to take a better picture next time.

hugs, Kaye

Another Friday Frolic from CJ!!


I have been working on this sweet kitty (trust me it is a cat) for the charity groups Quilts for Older Children and Adults.  It is a Alpha Kitty with the letter "H".  You can see a completed Alpha Bear on my blog here.   Plan to finish this one on  weekend trip to South East Oklahoma.  I can't read in the car, but I can stitch.

Enjoy!!

Serendipitous Jo's Forty-Fifth Frolic of the Year

First Friday of the month is Spooky Stitching time.  I really want to press on and complete Ghastly, Ghostly Ghouls by Just Nan.  I'm working on this most evenings and on days when I work full time as it's an easy travel project.


The other main piece is Dragon of the Winter Moon by Dragon Dreams:


Lots of white rayon!

I also finished another cube, H is still not stitched, that's this Friday's project.


Serendipitous Jo's Forty-Fourth Frolic of the Year

The fourth Friday of each month is preparation for detention!  Dentention day in the film The Breakfast Club was Saturday so that's when we do our Alphabet Club posts.

November's letter is P - for Pincushion and Pinstripes in the letter.  The pins are Kreinik with a bead at the top.

stitched on 28 count afghan

I also completed another Christmas Cube:


I'm stitching these out of order to fit in with the Christmas Ornie SAL blog so that's why H is missing.

And here's my spooky shelf showing just a few of my Hallowe'en themed finishes:
