Hoppin' Around

It feels like Spring up in our neck of the woods and so I hopped on over and started this rabbit design from With Thy Needle and Thread. Good progress for just a couple hours of stitching!




Tomorrow is Monday.... :(

Ready for Finishing

Stitching on this little bunny is done. He's ready for finishing! The spool in the kit is unfinished, so I'll have to take care of that first. Need some paint or stain and sandpaper....not my favorite part of finishing!




I took photos today of some of my older framed pieces. Remember this one?




It's called Hillside School of Handworke and it is from Hillside Samplings.

I dug another bunny piece out of my stash today. I'll share it with you tomorrow!

Tired Eyes

I hoped to finish this tonight, but my eyes are tired...




Love these pincushions from a few years back...







We dodged a bullet, didn't even see a single snowflake!

Hoppin' Along

I've been looking at all the new designs that are coming soon to the Nashville Needlework Market and contemplating the purchases I would like to make. At the same time, I'm feeling a little guilty because I still have purchases from past markets that have yet to be stitched.

So tonight I pulled out one of last year's purchases. Do you recognize it? It's from Milady's Needle. Love that bunny!




Tonight's oldie but goodie is a teenie tiny band sampler that I stitched in 2015. The sampler folds up and fits into the little metal case. This was designed by Jackie du Plessis.




We're expecting a boatload of snow tomorrow!

Goode Huswife

I picked up With My Needle from Goode Huswife again tonight. Still working on the verse. I have two and a half rows of words to stitch yet.




Tonight's oldie but goodie is an LHN piece that was available from Elegant Stitch a number of years ago. This special limited kit was a fundraiser for breast cancer.




Have a good day tomorrow. We're getting ready for a big snowstorm!

Block #1 is Done!

I had originally planned to stitch one block a month; now I'm rethinking that. One block every two months might be a bit more realistic. Block #1 for Village of Hawk Run Hollow...




Tonight's oldie but goodie...a class piece from Blackbird Designs. Looking forward to seeing Barb and Alma again at Stitchville's Spring Fling in April!







See you tomorrow!

Stitch Me a River

Yes, I still need to stitch the river. And the tall grasses. Maybe tomorrow night.




Here's a set of Smalls from a retreat I attended in southern Indiana. I thought my finishing was superb if I may say so myself!




See you again tomorrow!
