200 Days in and still Strolling Strong......(200)

Today marks the 200th day of my Stitch Stroll and to celebrate I'm going to have a Christmas in July giveaway. To enter the drawing, leave a comment on my blog with the word "Noel" in it to have a chance to win the framed Bent Creek piece I posted yesterday (July 18). I'll pick a name on July 25th and announce the winner. One entry a day starting today through July 24th--good luck all! Feel free to spread the word. 

Today's Stroll piece is a UFO from the JCS Ornament issue from 1998. It is called Home for the Holly days by Ruth Sparrow at Twisted Threads. One of these days I'll finish it into an ornament!

I got a little more stitched on my Schoolhouse piece..mainly the bird and top of a strawberry! Okay, that red door is bothering me... but I don't want to take out the over one. I changed the colors and am using a red from the Prim collection of VMSS threads. I think I'll wait until I get the rest stitched and see how I feel then.

Today I am off to the Williamsburg outlets with my granddaughter. Her brother is at camp this week and she asked for a sleepover at our house. I'm squeaking in a stop at Haus Tirol to pick up Anchor floss for the Christmas stocking.

Thanks for stopping by and your "twisted threads" of friendship!



  1. 200 stitches!! I can't wait to see what number you end your stroll at! Yes, please enter me in your Noel giveaway!
    The birdhouse is sweet and your red door certainly pops!! That might be a good thing though, no fun frogging one over one. Enjoy your outlet shopping. Mary

  2. Your birdhouse is adorable, Stasi, and yes, you need to get it in finished form. Have a fun day outlet shopping with your granddaughter! I like the blues used in your bird.

  3. You are really moving along on the Schoolhouse piece. Lookin' great! Yes, wait on the door for now.

  4. I like the red door. You may have been thinking you would have liked a darker red, but I don't think that's worth ripping out over 1. You are so lucky to be so close to Williamsburg!

  5. I like the NOEL piece. Something for one of the unexpected places to find CHristmas decorations. I have Christmas everywhere (including bathrooms) in my house. Thanks for the chance.


  6. Stasi I love your Holly piece but I especially love your house stitch. I like the red door and would not rip it out (though I do it all the time) Have a great time with your granddaughter. RJ @ stitching friends forever

  7. It's fun watching everyone's Schoolhouse projects take shape. Mine, unfortunately, is still in its bag. LOL!

  8. I like the red door,o that's just me. Please enter me in for Noel.
