Now it's a waiting game ......

I have been working on a Prairie Schooler piece for a new baby that is on the way (the son of one of my dearest friends is expecting his first son, any day now).

It is the train from Book #69, A Prairie Village I.  As they are a hipsterish couple, I thought that the understated vintage aspect of the design would appeal to them.

I am very pleasde with how it is looking so far....

The empty space in the coal carriage is for the baby's initials, when I know what they are - he is due any day now.

So, as I said it is just a waiting game.  I will show you the finish when I can.

Hugs, Kaye

Prairie Schooler Sampler

Hello Everyone,
I am a very happy stitcher today as I just joined up your blog thanks to Kaye who accepted my request and thanks to Brigitte who made me know this blog.
I habe been a Prairie Schooler fan for ages : I love stitching Samplers but I also love making different projects with their design always so poetic.
The last one I made was the Samler garden from the book 45 :
it is stitched on 36ct vintage light examplar from Lakeside Linen with silk.

If you wish it, you can see my other projects following this link : Thanks in advance for looking at my projects.

I believe you make this year, an ornie Sal, please, may I join you ?
Have everybody a wonderful day,
Hugs, Isa

Another Nordic Holiday .....

Hi all, I have finished my second Nordic ornament from PS Book #191 for the Christmas Ornie SAL May theme of "Reindeer".

Isn't he a proud, handsome fellow?

He is a companion piece to the April theme of "Ornament".

So pleased with my PS progress so far this year - I now have a few finishes under my belt.

I hope that you all are enjoying your Prairie Schooler stitching this year.

hugs, Kaye

Finally, another PS finish for me...

Hi all, this month I really struggled with choosing a design for the theme of "Ornaments" for the Christmas Ornie SAL but after weeks of procrastination, I finally settled on this gorgeous Nordic ornament design from Prairie Schooler, which, of course, feed my PS addiction, too. So, double yay!

I used these two gorgeous Sajou cotton floss and stitched it on 28ct white linen.

I think that for next month's theme of reindeer for the Christmas Ornie SAL, I will stitch a companion piece, the reindeer in the top left corner.

hugs, Kaye

Finally I can join the fun!


I've been waiting and waiting and waiting, and finally I had the money to order some Prarie Schooler charts online last month! I was thrilled to bits when I received them, I tell you! I know that you all can understand my pure joy, lol!

So, the important question: what did I get??
Well, after very careful consideration I picked these two books... well as these two:

It was a bit difficult to decide which one I should start stitching first, but since I've fancied Christmas Tree Farm for ages, it just had to be that one:) Who can resist all those Christmas trees???
So, I have made a start on all those trees, and also a cute reindeer:

However, I also got a PS Santa, and of course it had to be a crafting Santa...

...which meant that together with the two PS Santas that were gifted to me by the lovely Brigitte , I have three Santas:

I'm stitching my PS Santas alongside Gominam at Stitch Niche, and after yesterday's Frolics I have come this far:

I'm one Santa short as you can see - empty top left corner lol - but I hope to order some more soon.
I already have my eye on the knitting Santa, which would look fab in the upper corner!

I'm also working on a PS ornament for the Christmas Ornie Sal but I'll show you that another day.
Now I'm itching to get back to my PS stitching, and hopefully I'll be back here soon with some finishes!

Thank you Kaye, for setting up this fab SAL where I can share my PS crush with fellow addicts, LOL!
