And then there was stitching...

Quick post to share some of the things I have been working on since my last post. Most days I am grateful for time to stitch and updating this old blog is not a priority. I know that there are still a quite a few of you who like to peruse the blogs though and I also need to keep the Mad Tatter happy!

Last month I finished up this wool pouch. It was a class piece at Needlework Galleria last fall with Summer House Stitche Workes. It was a fun project!  It’s called Pumpkin Patch Pouch.  Love the fall colors!




Also from Needlework Galleria, this little make and take kit from Hands on Design. The inside was all pre-assembled and ready - all I had to do was cross stitch the outside, then sew the two together. It turned out okay. I always struggle making those corners look good. It’s called “With this needle, I thee thread”!




Two weekends ago, I finished up another block on the Village of Hawk Run Hollow.  Six down and six to go.  Those blocks are solid and very deceiving - they take much more time to stitch than you would expect.


I have one more finish to share but I’ll save it for another post. Let me leave you with a snap of the pretty flowers I received from my daughter on Mother’s Day.

I really enjoy reading blogs and yours is one of my favorites! You were the one who revealed to me where all the young stitchers are - FlossTube! And I love it! Thanks you for sharing all your classes and travels. Your photos are wonderful! And when you take time away and don't blog for a while, I miss seeing your posts. I am sure blogging takes tame. Anyway, thanks for blogging and sharing! Happy Stitching!

Very pretty projects. That wool one is lovely and I love the Fall colors. I did nine of the parts for Autumn at HRH. Yes, they do take a lot of tome to stitch. I wanted a square shape for over my fireplace so the 9 worked better than 12.

The Needle & Thread and Pumpkin Patch Pouch projects are so cute. You did a great finishing job on both of them.
