March WIPocalypse - Olga Has A Head!

The full moon has rolled around again so it's time for a WIPocalyse report. I added another start to my list to remind me of the season of Lent. 

La D Da Psalm 103
stitched on 28ct Blended Needle Parchment
using DMC floss

La D Da Psalm 103 was a quick stitch. Now I'm hunting for a suitable frame for it. I cut my fabric a little short,especially top and bottom, so I'm hoping I don't run into any problems with framing.
Following this finish I moved on to Plum Street Samplers Olga.

Olga has gained a head since my last posting. Isn't she just the cat's meow!? I love the expression on her face. She's got that look. You know, the one that says," Don't even think about it!"
That little appendage beneath her belly is actually the stem of a pumpkin resting at her feet.
There really isn't a whole lot of stitching remaining in this piece so I should have it finished off in a few days. Famous last words, lol!

Besides these two I also managed to finish two smalls, BBD Breath of Spring and PSS Got Luck. You can see pics of them on my previous post.

I'm pulling fabric and floss today for another small stitch. I have both an Easter and a St. Patrick's Day one in the wings. Haven't decided which I'll start first. Once Olga is complete I'm planning on moving on to With Thy Needle & Thread Feather Your Nest. It's a great spring start! 
Hope you are enjoying a good week and that there is some time to put needle to fabric.


  1. Olga is great. :) I LOVE Psalm 103.

  2. Love Psalm 103 and Olga is so cute!

  3. Love Psalm 103! And Olga is a hoot!

  4. cant wait to see that pumpkin...
    Be always in stitches.

  5. The La D Da piece is great! Good progress on Olga.

  6. Your Psalm is very pretty.

    I stitched Olga a year or so ago...with some changes.

    Keep up the great work.


  7. Congrats on the great stitching progress, you're getting loads done.
    Best wishes.

  8. Olga looks awesome ~ almost finished! And I can't believe you snuck in another finish! That La D Da piece is lovely. It would look fab as a cushion on your stitchy chair...

  9. Psalm 103 is gorgeous. Olga is looking great. You have been very busy.

  10. Congrats on your La D Da finish! Olga looks wonderful, I can't wait to stitch up mine :) Love the look of your new start.

  11. Love your LaDDa piece, and Olga is looking quite sassy.

  12. LOL! Now that you've mentioned it, I can certainly imagine Olga going "don't even think about it" XD

    Beautiful finish. Hope the framing goes fine.


  13. Beautiful stitching Lynn!
    I love Olga! I have her kitted and ready to go, you are inspiring me.
    Have a great weekend!

  14. Psalm 103 is a beautiful finish. So pretty.

    I love Olga! You'll have her finished in no time.

  15. That finish is lovely and I quite like the sentiment.

    That is the look Hunter gives me when I try to take pretty pictures of him. "Please Mum I'm a boy...I am not pretty"

  16. Hope you manage to get your lovely Psalm piece framed Lynn and Olga is looking great.
    Enjoy your week-end. Hugs!

  17. Pretty I like the quote. Hrm, maybe I could stitch a quote for my MIL's project? yeah then it'd never get finished! Good job on your other pieces too.

  18. Oh Lynn! That Psalm is gorgeous! Congrats on the finish1! Love Olga too! That look is the best! I'm glad that bit under the belly is the start of a pumpkin and not some weird thing growing outta her belly!!


  19. Lovely stitching as always!
    Really like that la d da piece, what a great verse!

  20. Ha Ha--yes, Olga looks like one tough cookie :) Lovely progress on her, Lynn. I'll bet this one is such fun to stitch... And your finish of Psalm 103 is beautiful--perfect for this time of year.

    I'm looking forward to your new start--looks like a goodie :) Have a wonderful weekend, Lynn!

  21. Love the Psalm and Olga is looking very smug, isn't she?

  22. Inspiring finish Lynn :o)

    Olga certainly does have that look doesn't she? LOL! You're so close!

    Your next start looks like a fun stitch.

  23. Olga is looking great. Definitely a cat with attitude! What a lovely La D Da finish, perfect for this time of year and you've picked a lovely one to stitch next.

  24. Your La D Da is so pretty. I cannot tell how short you cut the bottom, but unless you are having it matted, I bet you have plenty of room for framing. I have at times left less than two inches and never had a problem.
    Your Olga is fantastic! Love the colors. Nice work!

  25. Your psalm finish is so nice, Lynn! What a great idea to stitch something religious for the season of Lent.

  26. Lovely La D Da finish! Another one of my favorites!
