Dinner - chicken fajitas and all the fixings.


Heading back to reality on Tuesday.

A Little Blackbird

Delicious breakfast at the Ranch this morning....



Followed by some Blackbird stitching. This is the sampler we received the first night of class with them at the Attic last November. I only had a little bit of the border stitched when I started yesterday.


Stroganoff and apple pie a la mode were on the menu for dinner.



Looking forward to one more day of stitching and R and R!

It’s February Already?

Haven’t had much time for blogging lately, but I’m off on another stitching weekend and will try to bring you updates from the Ranch.

The fire is warm and toasty.


Today I stitched the February installment for the Linens and Threads 2020 Mystery Sampler. I’m all caught up now until March.


Tomorrow I plan to stitch Blackbird!

And the WIP Parade Continues

I think we left off with #11, Needle and Thread by Brenda Gervais. Keep in mind that I’ve already finished three WIPs since the first of the year: Sweetheart Pincushion from Blackbird Designs, 12 Days of Christmas from Satsuma Street, and Needle and Thread from Brenda Gervais. I don’t think there will be any more finishes in January.

WIP #12 Alphabet Blocks from Carriage House Samplings. Don’t judge me, but I think I’m going to start this one over. I’m stitching with two threads over two on 36ct linen. That should explain why this is languishing in the WIP pile.


WIP #13 Feliz Navidad by Blackbird Designs. I think this is 40ct Picture this Plus. Not a big fan. It’s like stitching on 46ct.


WIP #14 Christmas Sampler from Prairie Schooler. I like the linen. I should really finish this one.


WIP #15 Another Prairie Schooler, Book #79, Christmas Village.  All those green trees!


WIP #16 Four Seasons Band Sampler from Sally Hesketh.  This pattern was in a Series of Just Cross Stitch magazines several years ago.


Just when you think it is safe to go into the craft room. I found more WIPs. Oy vey.

Mary Miller - A Little More Progress

Not much stitching happened this week; it was a busy work week. I did spend a few hours with Mary Miller this weekend though. I’m almost finished with the top section of alphabets and words.


I’m itching to start something new, but I’d really like to get this sampler finished first. I have a few more WIPs to share too, but I’ll need to photograph them first. :)

Hope you have a good stitchy week.

Productive Weekend

Tomorrow I return back to reality after enjoying a really productive weekend. Five framed finishes and two WIPs finished!

Here’s the most recent WIP finished - it’s Needle and Thread from With Thy Needle and Thread. I still need to add buttons and thread the needle.


Here’s an updated photo of 12 Days of Christmas - wrinkle free!


I also had time to start on another block on Village of Hawk Run Hollow.


I probably won’t be back with another update until next weekend. Have a good week!

Sunday at the Ranch

Another great breakfast...

I was able to finish 12 Days of Christmas by Satsuma Street.  Please excuse the wrinkles!


We had delicious white chicken chili and cornbread for supper. No picture...

The fun ends tomorrow.
